This was my second time at Butt`s Clermont Houseboats! The whole scenery is idyllic, a beautiful garden at the quite part of Dal Lake. Mr Butt personally, and all the personnel are offering you a high quality tailored service which will cover all your expectations! I am looking forward to return soon at this fantastic place!

The house boats were beautiful to look at and entertaining to learn about. What really sets Butt's apart is the service. Mr. Butt goes out of his way to make sure that every guest is getting the most out of their visit to Kashmir. Whether it is arranging cars, tours, meals, or anything you can imagine he does it.

A hidden jewel on the Dal Lake in the emerald setting of a Mughal garden with giant Chinar (maple) trees, the Butt Clermont Houseboats are a haven of peace. On this trip, I got the boat Michael Palin stayed in, but all I did was eat the delicious Wazwan cuisine that the chefs rustled up each day, and put my...

On the quieter side of Dal Lake, 3 house boats are parked next to a Mughal garden that is peaceful and beautiful. Expect no 5 Star comforts and enjoy the undulating experience of living within a beautifully carved interior with very comfortable bedrooms and well appointed living rooms. The service is impeccable and equally charming is the head butler Ramzan...

I came for business and wish I could have stayed indefinitely. Mr. Butt was there to greet me upon arrival with a fresh yellow flower in his jacket pocket. From the minute I got out of the car, I felt like I immediately belonged and was a part of the family. Butt's Clermont Houseboats are a living history lesson. The...

We have just spent 3 nights on one of Mr Butt's houseboats and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Mr Butt and his team are very keen to help, no request is too minor. We travelled with our two boys and they particularly appreciated playing in the very picturesque garden. I would have loved to have stayed at least a couple more days...

We visited the Clermont's houseboats in 2010 and to this day I have not forgotten the amazing time we had. Before visiting Kashmir, we heard a lot of stories about Kashmiri hospitality and throughout the tour we had a great time but if ever I will have to set a standard for great hospitality then it would be Clermont's houseboats....

From our first telephone contact with the legendary Mr Butt to the warm embrace we received on arrival it was clear that this was going to be a visit to remember. Perched on the edge of Dal Lake lies this little corner of Paradise. The houseboats are cosy and warm, the food is traditional Kashmiri and the welcome the same....
