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

Being on the serene and quiet Nigeen lake, far from the crowded Dal lake, Peacock houseboat is the perfect spot to relax, unwind and enjoy the unique fun of staying in a houseboat and soak in the magic and natural beauty of the place. Since the boats are docked on the wester side of the lake it gives an open... More

First off, from the numerous houseboats that exist in Dal and Nigeen Lake, we were fortunate to find this one, through our friend's recommendation, and I think we would like to stay here again. One of the best parts of living on Peacock was the warmth and hospitality of the host. Great food and great living experience sets this one... More
