Courteous Owner Mr Dinno and Guest in charge Mr Hameed truly make you feel like royal guest in a miniature palace. Tasty Nabru palak and upma are two things I shall miss in Mumbai. Mr Hameed lives by... More

The houseboat is very comfortable with scenic beauty of lake. The service, food and the warmth reception is really memorable. The hospitality of Captain Hamid and other members of the hotel is very heart touching. Captain we hope a long friendship with you as I'm really impressed on your reception.

Captain Hameed arranged all of our travel during our trip to Kashmir and it was flawless. Between him and Khalid, who was with us through our trip they made sure our trip was seamlessly planned. We were guided on how to deal with locals at various tourist spots (they can be very pushy and irritating) , taken to the best... More

located at Nigeen lake. Dont need a Shikara to reach. very poorly maintained property. I booked as i got a great discount. But doors/towels/ taps/ linen/ every thing is dirty/shabby. Needs a lot of maintenence. Only thing good about this property was the welcoming and helpful attitude of Khalid.

This is Captain Abdul Hameed Dunoo, Proprietor of M/s "New Buckingham Palace" Houseboat, Nigeen Lake, Srinagar, Kashmir(India).My houseboat, New Buckingham Palace, is situated on the most beautiful lake in Srinagar Nigeen called 'jewel in the ring." Every window of the houseboat commands great views of the lake and historical fort, and on the other side of the houseboat, a huge well-kept garden with traditional trees called "chinar" and beautiful flowers can be found. The New Buckingham Palace houseboat is really a floating palace. The houseboat itself is 135ft. long and 17ft. wide, having large airy rooms. ... more   less
