However I did wanted to try as it is unique experience. And I am glad that I selected this one.... More

At the outset we would like to mention that staying at Gurkha houseboats was one of the best experiences of our life and you must read this entire review to know the reasons for the same. We were three couples who had hesitantly booked Gurkha houseboat for one night in the last week of February 2014 as we had heard... More

We opted for Gurkha houseboat because couple of tour operators had advised for it. It is located in Nagin Lake and one needs to take a Shikara for to and foe to the houseboat which is free. It is pretty quiet location unlike Dal Lake and good for honeymooners and couples to spend some quality time. Service was absolutely fantastic... More

There can be little better than relaxing on the back of a Kasmiri houseboat in one of the world's most beautiful and peaceful locations - and few houseboats can be better than the Gurkha Houseboats on lake Nageen, a quieter, less comercialised (and cleaner) alternative to the adjoining lake Dal. The beautifully furnished cedarwood interior opens onto a comfortable balcony... More

there must be stiff competition and we went for the "best" and were not disappointed within limitations Gulla the "houseboy" in Gurkha HB 3 (of 35 years) beyond reproach, the wood carving totally OTT and the furnishings ditto, the continuous wood-burning stoking much appreciated Position on the smaller Nageen lake delightful, shikara service excellent so not isolated as one heard...

We stayed here in Houseboat No. 2 in a group of four couples. Our experience has been simply awesome right from the ambience, decor, food and hospitality. We checked in with very cold and cloudy weather outside but once inside the boat, each room has individual heater and hot beds to keep the stay very much warm. Food is excellent... More

Well maintained, nice food, friendly staff in Gurkha houseboat. Scenic view was very nice. Although its a 3 bedroom houseboat, but we were only ones in the houseboat so it was all ours. Staff was very well mannered. Houseboat was having WIFI connection.We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Will be back, for sure! there is no swimming pool and fitness center
