Calm, Serene & Beautiful! these are the only three words on your mind after you're done with your houseboat experience. We were staying with the Flora houseboat on the Nigeen club side itself, so we could happily hop on the land without having to using a Shikara everytime. The houseboat experience was a first for me, so I thoroughly enjoyed... More

We stayed at Peacock houseboats for 2 nights during our visit to Srinagar in the last week of July. The location is fantastic but that's about it. We were disappointed with poor service and hygiene levels. The food served at breakfast and dinner was quite substandard. After a long day trips, we expected simple yet decent food but guess they...

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.

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.
