We stayed in 3 rooms in the peacock houseboats. The house keeper Aziz was very helpful. The rooms are very clean and large. Every elegant decoration. Was one of the highlights of our trip to Kashmir. Food was very home like and delicious. Aziz tool great care of us.

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

Before we reached the houseboat , I expected the house boat experience to be similar as the houseboats at Kerala but this was indeed a new experience where we had to go to the shikara stand at the ghat no...

We visited Srinagar between June 24th and June 27th of 2015 and stayed at Peacock for two nights starting 25th June. We had two adults and two children. 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...

Stayed here for 5 days from 20th to 24th. This group has got 6 houseboats. We stayed in No. 5. This is one of the few houseboats in Nigeen lake that are parked parallel to the shore. So one can view the lake from all the rooms of the houseboat. This one has got 2 rooms, and we were 5... More

nice place, good food, but careful with kids. serene atmosphere with surrounding ice clad mountains. nageen river with shikara ride was fantastic. Nageen lake connects to Dal lake and the shikara ride to Dal lake & Back to nageen was fantastic.

Stayed with family. The stay at the houseboat was calm,cosy and luxurious. The food was good and the service even better. We were delighted by the fact that the English cricket team that had toured India in the 80's had stayed in the very same houseboat. Lounging on the deck with the Hari Parbat and the calm waters of the... More

The Kashmir experience - shikara rides, gardens which beg for you to break into a song and the divine food all came alive for us on our recent trip to Kashmir. But sometimes the sheer volume and cacophony of crowds becomes too much you want to slip away to a place where one can refresh oneself. This is where Peacock... More

We decided to celebrate our little ones 2nd birthday as a family vacation in Srinagar. Peacock Houseboats came highly recommended. It was truly an amazing experience...such a lavish house boat, good food, and a very diligent staff, addressing all our needs. The staff went an extra mile to ensure that the baby's stay was comfortable and the mother was getting... More
