Srinagar was last stop of our honeymoon trip... after staying in luxury hotels we were appehensive about houseboat stay... but our fears turned out false ... it was well maintained luxurious houseboat... and best part were Mr Farooq, Bilal and his team who treated us more like a family guest ..... When we by car , the driver bought us at other side if lake ... Mr Farooq was kind to arrange a shikara boat to get us to the houseboat ... houseboat had a captain whom you can ask anytime for service ..My wife had throat problem and captain arraged hot water regularly ... in the night we enjoyed the view from end of houseboat ... there we could sleep and see the view in front, enjoy the breeeze ... it was most romantic , ... we needed some samplings of kashmir roses trees and the captain promptly arranged the same ... backyard of houseboat has nice apple and rose trees.. they have maintained beautiful garden there... ... Mr farooq also arranged for us a car to take us around the city , a shikara for a evening ride on Lake and later Drop to the airport ..... the food was also good ... we were pleased to have very homely food here as were tired if high oil and heavy masala food in our stays at earlier hotels .... when left from here to our hometown... we forgot our mobile at the houseboat .... we got afraid ... when we called however Mr Bilal assured us that he will try to send our phone to our home... he tried to send by courier however they refused to send mobiles ... then Mr Bilal sent phone thru some family friend who was travelling to our hometown in pune and we received our phone... we are very thankful to Mr Bilal for this kind help... overall stay at this houseboat was more of family stay and we would recommend this to anyone
