I experience staying at Gurkha House boat with my wife the first time & it was in mid days of July. The weather was quite pleasant. As this property was marketed by Heritage Group & they are charging enough for this but its not value for money although just a one time experience. There are 2 lakes in Srinagar Dal... More

Staying at the Gurkha houseboat on the last night of my Kashmir trip was surely an icing on the cake. We had the most amazing time there with great hospitality and serene surroundings of the Nagin lake and the mountains all over. Its got a very peaceful and relaxing ambiance with beautiful vintage interiors. Right from the traditional rugs to... More

We stayed in Gurkha Houseboats in Srinagar on 4th and 5th July 2014. We had a very nice and relaxing experience in the houseboat. The Managers on Duty Mr. Shaukat Ali and Mr. Rayees Ahmed were exceptionally hospitable and caring and they added very good value to our overall stay. We would like to visit the house boat every time... More

This houseboat is located on nagin lake which is beautiful and less commercial than dal lake. The interior of houseboat is very impressive with walnut and other types of wooden furniture. Houseboat is well maintained and is clean with modern amenities. Our houseboat caretaker Mr Imran was hardworking and efficient. Food taste is average and should be improved.

We checked in into Gurka Houseboat No.6 for a night. Out of 3 rooms, 2 were booked by us. It was a real good experience spending a night at the houseboat. The houseboat is situated at Nageen Lake and it's an amazing experience taking a shikara ride in the evening enjoying cool breeze and nature. The food served at the... More

The title of my review explains it all! The Gurkha Houseboats are in the quiet Nagin Lake. Exquisitely designed with chandeliers and huge papier mâché vases and exquisitely crafted walnut furniture, you intake a gasp as you enter the Houseboat. We shared the boat with another family. The food was homemade, prepared by the caretaker and it was good! The... More

Had an excellent stay here.! These houseboats are undoubtedly the most luxurious ones and are at the most scenic location. A perfect choice to make for the people who seek for a serene vacation and to admire the beautiful nature around. As far as the food quality is concerned, just one word 'delicious' would be enough. The services provided were... More
