We had planned a short trip to Srinagar, and had decided to stay in the city rather than venture out to the tourist attractions of Gulmarg and Pahalgam. While our friends thought we were crazy to plan a sedentary trip to Srinagar, they warned us not to come back without experiencing at least a night in one of the house... More

I loved every aspect of this perfect night on the water! This was my first trip to Kashmir, and it was great! The boat was decorated in Kashmiri fashion and was cozy and beautiful, with nice carpets and vases, and splendid wooden chairs and tables. The service was great, friendly and professional. Riyaz, Nazir and Shaukat (the manager) helped us... More

We stayed for one nite, at boat no 5 which has 2-bedrooms and we had the luxury of being the only occupants. When we reached the houseboat, Riyaz welcomed us and we waited in the boat, to check-in, watching the dawn break over the Dal lake. Salim a very helpful helper on our houseboat, did not know how to say... More

Having arrived in Kashmir very much unprepared, we could not have hoped for a better welcome. Within 30 minutes our 4 day stay in Srinagar was planned, including guided tours of the city and the surrounding area - Gulmarg etc. on top of this, arrangements for our travel and accommodation in our next stop we're made for incredibly reasonable prices....

The staff, Riyazh and Nazir, were extremely accommodating, hardworking and courteous, the rooms beautiful, the food delectable, and the location serene. If you are looking for a great houseboat stay, please consider the Gurkha Houseboats -- you wont be disappointed. Umer,... More

Wow. I was awestruck when i first saw the beautiful craftsmanship on the interior of our houseboat.(no. 5). I researched a lot to get a decent family stay in srinagar. Initially, I preferred Taj but then I changed my mind and booked a houseboat for a better local experience. And man I was right. From the sensational carvings inside the... More
