It was such a pleasure to stay in the Gorkha House boat early this month...The moment we reached the House Boat, I knew we have made a right selection. I researched for good 3-4 months before making up my mind where to stay in Srinagar, as you get so many options on the web... But we chose Gorkha House Boat,... More

We had an amazing stay on the house boat. As far as I know, it is the only houseboat with electricity and wi-fi. Decor and furniture are antiques and hand made in Kashmir. The helper on board ensures that all your needs are taken care of. The manager was always present checking on us. Food was delicious and freshly prepared.... More

As it turned out to be, It was great decision to stay in Nagin lake compared to Dull lake because of factors such as cleanliness, peace and great mountain view... More

Serene surroundings accompanied by personal attention by the wonderful Rayees.. The food that is prepared by friendly cooks is always of excellent quality. The manager Showkat is ever ready to make daily visits to ensure an enjoyable stay on this floating home. We would gladly come again.

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.
