Impeccable services on the Royal group of houseboats. Great location, great staff who were attentive to all our needs. Surprised to see the large size rooms as I was expecting smaller rooms. Food was also great and served as per our needs. Have no hesitation in recommending these boats to anybody looking for a top class experience.

However, it was uplifting to witness how energetically the people of Srinagar pulled together to repair roads, houses, etc. I was so impressed with the Royal Group.

I was worried that visiting so soon after the terrible floods things would be difficult, however the lake, Mogul gardens and tourists attractions were all there to be enjoyed. The Royal boats are a short Shikara ride away from the main area, situated in a beautiful area on the lake with wonderful views of the mountains. Watching the birdlife or... More

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.
