At the beginning of August 2015 we stayed in a Peacock House boat on Lake Nigeen. We requested a pick up from the airport and we booked breakfast and evening meal. We had two rooms and we were in a house boat on our own. We are a family from the UK. Lake Nigeen is a beautiful lake, the peacock... More

We stayed for a 1N-1D at Peacock Houseboat. The interiors are amazing and intricately done. The cutlery, the dining area all done beautifully. However, the food served was average, the basic toiletry wasn't provided, and they even charge you to take you from the lake side to the houseboat and back! Paying a hefty amount of 3500 per room is... More

We stayed with Peacock houseboats for two nights in August. The setting in Nigeen Lake is perfect - much quieter and well worth the slight rickshaw ride out of town. Transfers via shiksa across the lake are free, so you don't get hassled trying to make your way across. The staff are extremely helpful (walked us to the rickshaw stand... More

These houseboats are in Nagin lake, which is lot more peaceful than Dal lake. This makes this houseboat more special. It is very calm and pleasant view of lake and mountains from the houseboat. The rooms are fine, interiors are well maintained. But food is a bit disappointing. Not many varieties are offered, tastes are average.

Though i have not been to any other houseboat, so dont know if this could have been better. But food certainly can be better here. I stayed here for 1 night on 31st May'15. The dinner just has 3 vegetables. I was expecting a better spread. Besides no salad, sweet, etc. No evening snack except Kashmiri Kahwa. But price is... More

This group has around 6/7 houseboats of various sizes. We were allotted Houseboat number 5. The Shikara ride from stand number 1 (the ride is complementary) to the houseboat itself will place...
