its located in nageen lake. the ambience is to die for. From the boat one can go to a private garden also which has manicured lawn, flower beds, chinar trees and sitting benches, ideal for a cup of hot steaming kashmiri chai at evening. Just wonderful. The carpets are very good and also very clean. Would like to go back.

Best of everything. When you think of houseboats as I heard from most people that mostly they are dirty . but coming to Gurkha houseboat, really good services. Very co-operative staff, good food , good ambience. I should say a must stay while on Kashmir trip.

We stayed at WelcomHeritage Gurkha Houseboat for two days and enjoyed the same. The ambience was superb and the balcony for sitting outside was majestic.The service of Mr Maqbool bhai was superb where he served us delicious vegetarian food. My daughter's birthday was also there during our stay and Maqbool bhai ensured to serve sweets just right for the occasion.... More

We stayed in Boat number 4, which has two bedroom ,dinning room and drawing room. We were 5 pax and hence had... More

At the end of a 4 week trip to India, Srinigar and the houseboats were a welcome, relaxing stay that refreshed us before we returned to the states. Located on Nageen Lake, the houseboats are much more relaxing and quiet than those on Dal Lake. The hawkers on the shikharas, however, can still be overwhelming and persistent, but if you... More

Extremely happy with our stay at Gurkha houseboats.. Good food and hospitality.. Their staff / agents from Delhi may get a bit nasty..but right from the manager to the caretaker at the houseboat are just too good !! It's a highly recommended houseboat

No jet or hand shower in bathroom. Book only if u r comfortable with toilet tissues. Also TV's connection is not proper. Good scenic view from boat house and good food. Location is good. Nagin lake is much neat than dal lake. Vinay Malani 9899353030
