Thank you to Habib and his family for a lovely stay on the houseboat and for organising our trek. This family run set of houseboats is on the beautiful Nigeen lake. The views are wonderful, food is fantastic and the houseboat itself is clean and well kept. My friends and I also organised a trek and were so well looked... More

If Kashmir is heaven on earth, Wangnoo houseboat was heaven within heaven. Spanking clean, beautifully crafted with artistic woodcarving all around and perched at an amazing location giving you a beautiful view of sunrise through mighty Himalayas. A reflection of sunrise inside the lake doubles the fun. If you want to sit for introspection away from any hustle, it is... More

Me and my husband stayed at Wagnoo Houseboats for 18 days and we enjoyed the amazingly beautiful woodcarvings and decoration of what could be described as a magic and divine houseboat. The nature at Nigeen Lake in Srinagar with its peaceful waters and the mountains in the background creates an amazing atmosphere that everyone has to experience once in a... More

Kashmir is a pearl of beauty in India, and Wangnoo Houseboats may well be the best place to stay if you want a houseboat - a magnificent view, fantastic carved Kasmiri wall panels, reasonable food for India and - oh heaven - a hot bath. It's worth paying a little extra for Wangnoo. Wangnoo is on Nigeen lake, which is... More

Although we stayed here just for a night - the quality of the houseboat was outstanding. Lavishly laid with Kashmiri carpets all around with very comfortable beds, nicely laid out tables and a cosy living room with television and good cutlery - this hotel is one place we would want to come back. The lunch that was served was quite... More

Is really a great experience staying in Wangnoo Houseboat! The scenery was amazing and very beautiful. The location is great and the rooms are totally done up in wood. We had very good meals right inside the house, and the service was excellent.

I did this booking through Hotels.com. As per the booking website (hotels.com) the distance is 9 mi ie 14.4 KM, while it is not true, the houseboat is 19 KM away from airport. Secondly the food was pathetic. The dinner served was without much options and was stale. Next morning the breakfast was more than pathetic. Bread, Jam and boiled... More
