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

We selected the houseboat solely by surfing the internet, on the basis of travelers' reviews and photographs on the websites of houseboats. The 7-day, 6-night package included bed,... More

We found the houseboat from the locator on google satellite and decided purely by location. Contact, one phone call, all set. The manager really manages all you need to get arranged. We ended up spending a whole week on the houseboat, Enjoying a lot of tea on the deck out front, great food, friendly staff and observing the every-day-life on... More

This is one of the best houseboats to stay in view of its excellent location. Owner of the houseboat Mr Naseer is a gem of a person and was more than helpful for anything that we required including our onward trip arrangements to Pahalgam. Service is commendable with Mr Basheer so great in understanding the needs of the guests. Food... More

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
