Only good thing about this Houseboat is food. We loved the food over here. But the boat lacks in hospitality. Rooms were clean and big, you will get hot water only in morning. Electricity played hide and seek through out the stay which was very annoying and irritable.

Fantastica boat house was truely awesome. We had wonderful time here. The food was very good and the boat house was very well kept. The people of the boat house were very nice. It was an amazing experience. If you are going to Srinagar, do choose to stay in boat house. And Fantastica boat house should be your choice too.
