Very Good ambiance at Royal Dandoo Palace. Nice Houseboat & Humble service by the caretaker Mr. Muddasar. Nice 3 days Stay at Houseboat. Rooms are spacious enough for 1 family of husband, wife & kids. it is giving nice view of Dal lake, Road & Mountains. reaching there by Shikara is quite enjoyable.
