I traveled to Kashmir with my wife during the end of June. Originally I had planned to stay at in a hotel but due to a mix-up between Agoda and the hotel that I'd booked my booking had to be canceled at the last minute. And although I was a bit wary of staying in a houseboat at first, it... More

The deal had included airport pick-up at Srinagar, tea-dinner-breakfast, overnight stay, and arrangements for shikaras for birdwatching on Nagin Lake in the evening. I must stay the whole experience was smooth and hassle-free. Capt Hamid... More

Well it was mixed feeling for me. Like the location and Shikara ride. Great birding at the ride. Was not able to sleep well due to no electricity and sound of the bed while tossing over. Had a great dinner. Scope for improvement and i am sure it would be done.

This is the best houseboat not just because of its location but also because of captain hameed and Khalid...I stayed at Khyber and was little cynical about my stay at New Buckingham Palace Houseboat but after I met the care taker Khalid I felt in peace...This houseboat is typically better than any other houseboat at Dal Lake...because it is placed...

We stayed on the boat 5 nights. It is on peaceful Nigeen lake, and is moored parallel to the shore, so you don't look out onto another boat. It has 3 rooms, and we stayed in the suite which is very large and has a private verandah attached, where you can look out across the water to the old fort... More

This is Captain Abdul Hameed Dunoo, Proprietor of M/s "New Buckingham Palace" Houseboat, Nigeen Lake, Srinagar, Kashmir(India).My houseboat, New Buckingham Palace, is situated on the most beautiful lake in Srinagar Nigeen called 'jewel in the ring." Every window of the houseboat commands great views of the lake and historical fort, and on the other side of the houseboat, a huge well-kept garden with traditional trees called "chinar" and beautiful flowers can be found. The New Buckingham Palace houseboat is really a floating palace. The houseboat itself is 135ft. long and 17ft. wide, having large airy rooms. ... more   less
