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... More

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.

It is just the thing that you cant leave whenever you want (because you need a boot for leaving) and i was a little dissappointed that i had to stay on my... More

What a great adventure! The houseboats have been re-modeled since our last visit with lots of upgrades. The food was delicious and service fantastic! This is the perfect place to stay when visiting Kashmir. Every request was handled promptly and efficiently! Javed was an excellent host...strictly world class! We will return!

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!

It was just another home with luxury n gr8 hospitality. The scenario around n the quality of food with choice n of course the family environment made it so cheerful.
