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.

We stayed on the Young Crystal HB for two nights. I would like to have stayed for another two nights as I enjoyed the accommodation, and the atmosphere on Dal Lake very much indeed. 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
