Spent 2 nights here and loved it. Fantastic rooms, great shower. The whole place is clean and neat, and very welcoming. Ghulam is a treasure. The verandah is ideal for sitting and relaxing, and enjoying the gorgeous sunsets. The food was delicious and the whole place is quiet and peaceful. I'd happily go again.

The service by Hilal, the caretaker of the houseboat we were on, was excellent. I also enjoyed shopping on the boat, without having to visit the... More

I stayed at one of the houseboats of this compay from July 1 to 3 with other 8 members of Japanese. The dishes we had for dinner were great and I appreciate our wonderful care taker. I'm sure Srinagar is a great place to visit and enjoy beautiful nature.
