My stay with family at this Houseboat was simply amazing. Mr.Nazir and his hospitality will touch everyone. It is well decorated and the view from this Houseboat is also great. Would recommend everyone to stay in this Houseboat for an unforgettable experience.

I went to Kashmir originally for only 4 days and ended up staying there for 2 months. I had the pleasure to stay in many of their boats and all of them were so cosy. The people is amazing, friendly, and made me feel like part of the family. You get to submerge in their culture by being with Bazir,... More

Firstly, don't get confused by Dandoo group of houseboats. Before booking, make it clear, exactly which houseboat you are getting as price varies. When I arrived, I got confused as I booked the houseboat seeing pics on site but I offered different one. Later on, Mr Nazir who is a very genuine and friendly owner of boat made me understand...

No hot water, terrible service, not what we signed up for. Most of all, sketchy people running the place. They do not offer a cannoo or way to leave the... More

We stayed at the Royal Dandoo palace houseboat for a night in August 2014. The room and toilet were clean and well maintained. However, the staff behaviour was not upto the mark. The staff member was authoritative right from the beginning, in fact we actually mistook him for the owner seeing the way he was behaving. We had requested him... More
