We stayed in the Royal Suite for a night. It is huge, luxurious, with a private balcony (though dont expect privacy, because of shikaras passing by in the lake). The stay was comfortable. Bathrooms are clean, with hot running water in the mornings. Nigeen lake is quiet and better than Dal is that sense. However, the location is far from... More

Its been a pleasure to be at New Buckingham Palace at Nigeen Lake. Nothing could define the kind of service we were provided. Truly amazing hospitality. We could not ask for anything more. Capt Hamid Dunoo and Mr. Khalid has become the part of the family. Everything was so well arranged be it sight seeing, food, drive, shikaras, dealing with... More

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

A group of 8 of us birdwatchers from Mumbai, on way to Leh via Srinagar, spent a night on Capt. Hamid's houseboat on Nagin Lake. 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
