Firstly, the houseboat in situated in a peaceful location away from the front of the lake where there is too much rush. Secondly, the rooms are quite elegant, traditionally decorated and have an old world charm. They are spacious as well. Bathroom is clean and spacious too, except for the bathtub area which needs a bit of an upgrade! I... More

We stayed in one of the house boats on 14th May'14. It is a different world altogether. Very well maintained & very classy ambience. We had got delayed and checked in around 10pm. Thankfully the attendant Mr.Bashir was cordial enough to arrange dinner. To our surprise we got really good home made food. This was a welcome break after eating... More

Food was basic but the rooms were clean and well maintained. We had 2 rooms while the third was empty during our stay. The houseboats are at one end and thus peaceful with a long view. Hire shikaras from your own houseboat. Do go to the back canals of the Dal Lake in shikaras to see the life style of... More

From the outside, the houseboat looked very normal / nothing great. But once we went inside, we were surprised to see extremely well decorated interiors and cleanly maintained rooms / dining areas / sitting areas. Location of Dawn houseboats is a big plus. While there are lots of houseboats in the congested part of the lake (near Dal Gate), where... More

If you have visited Kashmir and not stayed in a houseboat you have not experienced it essence. But all my freinds and relatives had advised me not to take the risk as they were not well maintained. Inspite of all advises I took the risk of booking one atleast for one night. Now I regret it. I should have booked... More

We have stayed for one night and have excellent experience.The roomswere neat and clean and the service was good.The Shikaraman was also very courteous. Good food and nice stay. The best thing is that it is bit far from shore and you enjoy shikara ride everytime you come and go from the houseboat.
