I am a frequent visitor to Srinagar and I prefer staying in a houseboat everytime. I have tried Dal lake as well as Nageen, and beyond doubt, my stay at Nageen has always been better with its picturesque backdrop of snow clad mountains and more importantly, peace and tranquility. In Nageen, the Gurkhas probably is the best houseboat that you... More

Beautiful location, brilliant hospitality, comfortable rooms and beautiful interiors! Thank you to the staff and the manager Mr Umer Wangnoo for the personalised attention, shopping and food tips around town and an insight into the local culture! Memorable stay indeed.

My stay at the houseboat was really good and the service was excellent. The manager, Umar, was very helpful in making my stay comfortable. He made me feel like I was staying in my own home. If you want to make your visit to Kashmir memorable, you must stay here for at least one night.

I am visiting Kashmir first time in my life and that too with my family. And how can one leave a Houseboat from the itinerary, after decent amount of researching I zeroed down on Gurkha houseboats. I was expecting a good property but its truly a heavenly experience being on this houseboat. Houseboat, its rooms, bathrooms are very clean and... More

The WelcomHeritage Gurkha Houseboats in Srinagar are truly exceptional in every way.The boats and the lake and the flora & fauna that surround it are breathtakingly beautiful. The common areas and the rooms are very beautifully done. The breakfast area - specially in the mornings - is stunning. The food at the WelcomHeritage Gurkha Houseboats is again fantastic. The range... More

I stayed here for 3 days but wished i had more time to stay longer. The morning view of snow clad mountain/sunset... More

I stayed in houseboat 4 on 11th July. The hospitality by Mr. Majid and Mr. Omar was amazing. They were always ready to get whatever you want. the interiors of the Gurkha houseboat do require a special mention as they were really brilliant. You feel royal in the houseboat. It was really luxurious houseboat with caring staff.

Was skeptical when friends shared their unpleasant houseboat experiences, but all doubts vanished on stepping into the Gurkha houseboat. Was upgraded to suites. The houseboat had lavish but warm interiors. Meals customized to request. Was served the best Kashmiri cuisine - aloo dum, yakhni, pulao - on the houseboat. Pleasantly surprised by the free wifi available on the houseboat.
