We stayed here for 5 nights and loved every minute. The house boat was by far the best on the lake and the service was outstanding. Our cook Hussan was a great guy who made our breakfast and dinner everyday and it was a real pleasure to experience real Kashmiri food at its finest. Our host and guide Shahban was... More

Our houseboat stay was for 3 nights and that was too long. It was clean and roomy and we had good wifi. However, I don't like being stuck in one place for all my meals. The staff was friendly, so it's not easy to give negative feedback, but I wish we'd been able to stay only one night, for the... More

We found the houseboat an experience that you should do for 1 or a maximum of two nights. The staff was very accommodating, but the boats need some updating...marginal hot water. Granted we were at the end of their season, but it was cold. There was a procession of vendors that stopped by nightly to show you their goods...trying to... More

The house boat was gave a feeling of home away from home. The staff was good and very cooperative. They helped us a lot to make us feel very comfortable. Shaukat jee was a great support for us. This house boat should be chosen not by big families. The rooms are small in size.

Good location, you've to go through Shikara gate 12. Home like food on the boat's beautiful dining hall is awesome. On my request the guy prepared three types of tea -- Kewa, Namkeen chai and milk tea. Every version of the tea was awesome. I've tried kewa in several places of Kashmir. But this one was the best.

We had a six days holiday in Kashmir, most memorable was the House Boat stay, quite location, clean bathrooms, beautiful Decor, delicious food, helpful "Shabbar" staff. Amazing view of sunrise and sunset. Owner of boat came personally to check if everything was up to the mark. My best stay ever. 👍👍👍
