We got free upgraded from normal room to bigger one. Food, Airport pickup are excluded from the room rate. The food is quite good. The tour in Srinagar are well organized so we're impressed with the service.

We stayed for 4 nights and we were very happy with the hospitality and food. The staffs and family were very helpful. The Shelter Group of Houseboats is on the river, it is not on Dal lake but we can walk to the market and museum nearby. The tour they provide was very interesting and there were no hidden extras...

We were there on May 2015. The houseboat was really well maintained. Rooms provided to us was neat & clean also well decorated. The best thing about the houseboat was their food.

We had an awesome 4-day trip to Srinagar by the end of last winter (February 2015) The stay was awesome and the advices by the boat owner was really helpful. They gave a clear guidance on limiting unforeseen expenses which you will usually face in Kashmir.
