Clean, safe environment. Amazing(though costly ) food. Good service. Kind staff. Tips: Shikara cost for commute between house boat & city is not included. Its just 50 bucks per one way but good to know beforehand. Dinner buffet is 400 for non-veg and 200 for veg. Food tastes good but ensure you know that you are charged per person per... More

We 4 friends went to Kashmir booking a package online. It was pleasant indeed. I liked the hotel stay more than houseboat. Hotel room was pleasant, nice and it was nice to stay. Homely food is served. Touseef bhaiyya was our travel guide. Very Co-operative, friendly and we'll behaved. Overall a nice experience.

The wi-fi was working but the hotel staff were clueless about password. I asked them multiple times but they refused to provide me the password. Food was really terrible but highly overpriced. Chicken curry they served in their buffet was pathetic. The tub inside the room was not in a proper condition. There was no intercomm. Room numbers were not... More

We had a very good time on the houseboat. The owner and staff were very helpful and ensured that our stay was comfortable. I would recommend this place to my family and friends too. The shikara ride around Dal Lake was very nice.

worst kind of experience I had at the house boat. I will never advise any person to chose this. I was there for one night on 10th June 2014. The room was dirty. We were given worst kind of Dinner. Even dinner was disasterous. Pls. avoid this booking.

First of All, please understand that this is a group of houseboats and not one houseboat. so when you reach the ghat and tell shikara person you want to go to Royal Dandoo group of houseboats, they would take you to any of the member houseboats - don't get confused with that. We got confused, initially felt deceived if we... More

It very much like at home without tension, excellent hospitality by Mr. Nazir and all his subordinate staff, special to mention the Driver Yusaf. The location is good although we have to take sikara on every time we go out of lake but that is penny charge considering the beauty all around.
