Peacock Houseboats is located in nagin lake with great view from the house boat. Services are very good and all heating facility there and location is also good. I must say go for house boat in nagin lake instead of Dal lake. Food is not good but still manageable. Care taker is trying hard to provide all the service and... More

though many people here have already reviewed about the quality of service and sophistication about the Peacock houseboat, my story is different and will never forget Mr.Ehmad (Proprietor of the boat) in my life. We traveled to Srinagar on September 6, 2014 and but the time we reached Srinagar it was heavily raining. we thought that we could visit at... More

This houseboat is situated in Nagain lake in Srinagar and hence you are out of those city noise.. The shikara sailing from Nagain lake to Dal Lake was awesome. The food was good. The owner has invested a lot by putting best furniture inside the houseboat. This is not expensive and worth trying once.

We stayed at the peacock houseboat only for couple of nights but we absolutely loved our stay. We were staying in two rooms so we had the entire boat for ourselves! the place is beautiful, clean and peaceful. The employees are very kind and helpful and the food is very good as well. It is beautiful because the houseboat is... More

When one talks of a houseboat in Srinagar, only Dal lake comes in mind. But when you come to this houseboat anchored in Nigeen lake, you will forget about Dal lake. First, the Nigeen lake is away from main city hence calm. Second, the Peacock (as well as some other) houseboat is situated far away from the main road, therefore... More

I loved my stay here. Had it been a little cheaper I would have made my dream come true by packing some stuffs along with my drawing board, going there solo, woken up in the morning with the sun rise over the lake...sat outside in the balcony and painted the whole day for a stretch of 1 week at least....

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
