From the moment we arrived at Butt's Clermont Houseboats, we knew we had chosen the perfect location for a relaxing peaceful long weekend escape from Delhi. Mr Butt greeted us as though we were long lost friends, and we left 3 days later feeling exactly that. Mr Butt's gracious and humble hospitality set the tone for a wonderful weekend aboard... More

The other reviews are not overstating the experience here. Yes, it's more expensive that the average houseboat, but what you are paying for is a unique experience. It is not your ordinary luxury of aircon and minibars, but the luxury of personalised old-fashioned service, and a most beautiful location away from all the other houseboats. It's a bonus that you...

The location is perfect. The only houseboat [HB ]with its own Mughal gardens and a place to walk out of the boat. Not only can you walk around the gardens and have breakfast there but you could stroll out till the Hazratbal Mosque as well. Well every word of people who have already written so much about this is place... More

The picturesque location, historic boats and wildlife make this special. What makes it superlative is the unparalleled hospitality and warmth of the Butt family and the staff. I cannot speak highly enough of the owners Gulam and Mansoor Butt, as well as Kaka who looks after your every need with a quiet efficiency and smile. My kids were engrossed by... More

Staying at Butt's Clermont houseboats is a unique experience not to be missed while visiting Srinagar.
