We had an excellent experience @ Kashmir Group of Houseboats, the houseboats were beautiful and charming. The location was nice as well. The rooms were comfortable with clean bathrooms. The food served tasted nice. The services are excellent as well. It is a nice palace to be with family.

The houseboat was awesome. The location was good and it was peace all around. But the service was not upto the mark and also the food was not so good. The menu of the food is fixed and it depends on what the chef prepared. You will not be asked about the menu. Even the water with the breakfast or... More

Onboarding experience at Houseboat at same evening was very bad. Mr.Baktoo has given our reserved room to someone else and still was talking very rudely and we were helpless. The alternative room he has provided was isolated and of very ordinary category. But, except that room, Other rooms were awesome that we need to accept. We enjoyed the stay @... More

Stayed with my family for two days last week. We were a group of 16 and had the whole boat to ourselves. The rooms are decent and spacious. The carvings on the wood and furniture are attractive. The best part is the sitting arrangement at the entrance. We spent most of our time there. Yes its a secluded location so... More

The houseboat was very well furnished, at a very nice location and the attendants were also extremely courteous. Undoubtedly the best houseboat to live in. The view from the houseboat was amazing the food served was also delicious.

We stayed there for one night in Nov 13. We are not at all happy with the service provided to us. We booked the houseboat through Mr. Sameer Ahmed, who provided a very nice and comfortable commute to us, for our entire Kashmir trip. I must appreciate that. But we moved to this houseboat with lot of expectation, which went... More

One of the best trip that I ever had, Great Food , Service Bit slow but over all the best. Most Memorable thing was the Candlelight Dinner on Roof top. Great People. will surely recommend Privilege Houseboats.
