My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in March 2014. Very relaxing and peaceful. Serene, placid waters. One can easily relax on the moored boat w a nice book and staff will make excellent kahwa (Kashmiri tea) on request, while you are relaxing on the "balcony" (for lack of better word for back of the boat). Just sit here,... More

Stayed here for our first night in Srinagar. The Kashmir suite allocated to us was comfortable and well appointed, although the drains in the bathroom were leaking. The waiters were initially surly, but later quite pleasant and hospitable. The meals served were wholesome and average in taste, though quantities served were generous. Peaceful surroundings , as compared to Dal Lake

The stay at the gurkha house boats was good overall except for the polluted lake. The staff was not very attentive though. Need to improve the quality of staff. Otherwise all was good at the gurkha houseboats.

Glad that I chose Gurkha H.B for my stay in Srinagar . I had 5 nights stay in Srinagar and initially I was hesitant to spent even a single night in Houseboat as I had a 4 year old kid with me and the ones I saw in Dal Lake were not upto the mark. Luckily I booked Gurkha after... More

Everything is perfect: the meals, the location, the service. The view is breathtaking. We knew the director, mr. Rafiq Wangnoo, in his shop, where you can buy carpets, pashmina etc... I will come back to buy the shatush, it's a promise. Thank you for everything.

The houseboat is located on Lake Nagin, the quieter and more peaceful of the lakes. The facilities are idyllic and the food and service impeccable. Shikaras can be organized to visit the villages around the lakes or the fruit and vegetable market in the early morning. Maybe better still, lie out on the deck and read or watch the world... More
