Good houseboat. Great view. Polite and helpful staff. Great food. Neat washrooms. We enjoyed the shikara ride upto the houseboat. No other way to make it there. So enjoy your raise on the lake while you are there.

Stayed here personally in 2010. And as I run a small travel company, I have been sending clients to this place and all have always given a great feedback. The food is amazing. You can experience the Kashmiri hospitality at its best here. The owners are always available if you need anything. Prompt communication regarding booking and any queries. Overall,... More

Awesome is the word.....you should check in by evening( around 4/5pm). The atmosphere in the evening is mind-blowing. The experience cannot be expressed in words. Since we had visited in Jun, which is an extremely hot month, we were very upset to see Srinagar crowded with no relief from heat. We had plans to cancel the future booking but somehow... More

I visited with three couples and three kids..the houseboat is located on Nageen lake which is far from central Srinagar and dal lake..but it is far better from commercial dal lake..excellent location and good hospitality..this property deserves five stars & forgot to mention delicious homely food..

The main thing to note is that Peacock Houseboat is not one but a group of houseboats (20 odd perhaps), all closely docked together, but essentially operated separately, borrowing from the same brand name like a franchise. Our experience was still great, but there is variability across houseboats, some of which are larger and better equipped than the others. Perhaps... More

The houseboat had no hot water when we reached there and took several hours for hot water to come from the taps. This becomes a problem in a place like Srinagar in winter. Also one thing that put us off the most was there was only one choice of food for vegetarians i.e. Aloo Gobi, Dal, Rice and Chapati. For... More

In my Kashmir Trip, stayed there for 1 night. They will direct you to come to Ghat No 1 of Nigeen Lake beside Nigeen Club. From there they will take you to Houseboat by Shikara. They say it as a complementary ride. But the truth is, road connecting the place where the Houseboat is stationed is difficult to find out.... More
