We had stayed here in July-14, this part of Lake is Clean & Calm, Room sizes are decent with a full view of Nigeen Lake bathrooms was also clean . Food provided was also good ,but the best part was the Shikara porters (Riyaz & his Uncle) hired by houseboat people to provide pickup & drop upto Nigeen Club, were... More

The entrance to the boat was majestic and welcoming. The sitting room is amazing attractive and relaxing. The room is fully carpeted and tastefully decorated in the local Kashmiri ambience. You either love it or hate it. For me, I love it. The ceiling of the whole boat and rooms are intricately decorated with enchanting wood which makes your mouth... More

It was our first experience on a houseboat and we really were surprised about this spacious and lovely place. Staying on Nigeen Lake was definitely the right decision having seen to overcrowded Dal Lake with much less atmosphere and privacy. Most people stayed only for 1 night so we were thankful to have 4 full days to explore the beautiful... More

Experience the stay in house boat at Nageen lake rather then over crowded Dal lake. Peacock house boats are clean and have excellent service. Nice view of the serene lake too from the balcony. The food was basic but tasty.

I booked this houseboat for 26th May night through cleartrip.com. I reached late night since I started late and the road condition was miserable. However, Mr safi guided us and even came to receive us from main road. Though I could not enjoy houseboat stay as I spent only 1 night there. I could not give better rating about this... More

We really enjoyed are stay at this houseboat. Amazing location. Service was good and food was great too. Should take the shikara ride from nagilee to dal lake. Beware of the vendors. Only disadvantage that we have to take shikara to reach the houseboat every time.

Beautiful and comfortable houseboat on quiet Nigeen Lake. I booked this houseboat through Makemytrip after seeing various reviews at Tripadvisor. It is a perfect place to relax and spend time with family and friends. The houseboat caretaker was very nice and always ready to help. We found the food part at Peacock to be on the lower side. The dinner... More

It's a houseboat, so the view is beautiful. I visited more than 40 houseboats during my visit and this was one of the best. The staff is very polite and very friendly. And the houseboat itself is very beautiful. I suggest to consider this houseboat if you want a really great experience. The best part is that it's in nigeen... More
