Nigeen lake is very quiet and peaceful when compared to Dal lake. We are vegetarains and we were provided very delicious and tasty food. Our younger... More

As soon as I booked the hotel on cleartrip, Captain Hameed got in touch and requested to provide details of our trip. Khaleed received us on arrival and we found him very amusing. He takes care of every little detail of the stay. He acted as our guide, providing information on sightseeing and day one drove us to Tulip garden... More

Excellent place for a family stay. We, 3 families stayed here for 3 nights and had booked the complete houseboat. Captain Hameed and his staff provided an excellent service. Although, Cap. Hameed gave us a ride to the marketplace nearby for the dinner, we had one dinner at the boat itself. A little improvement on their quality of food will... More

We spent 3 nights at New Buckingham Palace Houseboat which is located in the Nigeen Lake - smaller and distant extension of Dal Lake. The houseboat is operated by Captain Hameed Dunoo who is a very friendly person. Not just Mr. Hameed but all his employees working at the boat were very helpful for our 3 night stay.

From arrival to departure we were treated like royalty and family. The food was excellent, the houseboat was cozy and comfortable and the view was spectacular.... More
