The food and service were ideal and readily available. I would recommend this...

The proprietor and host on the houseboat, Javed Batku, was also our guide for touring the local sites around Srinagar and for a three week driving tour from Kashmir...

Great hospitality and excellent response at a time when curfew was going on. Provided tea even at 2'O clock in the morning. The room was neat, spacious and comfortable. Would suggest it as the ideal boat house to stay at. The only glitch was the price of the lunch ,which I felt was too high for the menu served.

We stayed at Swan group of houseboat in June 2016. Our stay was amazing. Especially the hospitality by one of its care taker - Shaban. His travel tips were very useful when we went to Gulmarg. The houseboat was really neat n clean. Great place to stay at!
