My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights and those were some of the best 5 nights we spent in any hotel. A lovely houseboat that is clean and comfortable. We stayed in boat number 5. As it is, Nigeen lake is a very quiet place without any of the tourist hustle bustle that Dal lake witnesses. We were... More

We have been in the Houseboat for one day. The Houseboat is in the Nageen lake. If you want peace and tranquility,this is the place. The food was excellent. You can have shikara ride. Only problem is the salesman through the shikara may pester you. We should have spent more time there. You should go with friends and family.

We stayed in Gurkha houseboat on 29th Jun for 1 night. Took 3 rooms so practically whole houseboat was ours and it was so much fun. They make you feel staying at home and it feels like home only. Rooms are spacious and are very well maintained with good decor. Bathroom quality is good too compared to other houseboats. Overall... More

Our last stop for the Kashmir Trip was Gurkha. We were eight members, so we booked a houseboat of four rooms. The welcome group owned the Gurkha houseboats. They have 6-7 boats. We were on the boat number second. These houseboats are not in the Dal Lake (which is a good part). After the tiring journey, the last day was... More

Excellent Room and very nice hospitality. We were two couples and houseboat has two room so full houseboat is ours. For staying nageen lake is best as very peaceful and for Shakira ride Dal Lake is very good as it's lively

We checked in on 27th June for a 1 night stay as a last part of our Kashmir itinerary before departing to Mumbai on 28th June. On the departure day, I requested the Houseboat Manager Mr. Shaukat for a one hour extension (1 pm checkout) as our car was to arrive at 1 pm to take us to the airport.... More

We had visited Srinagar in June 2016, and after doing lot of research had zeroed down on Gurkha houseboat by WelcomHeritage group of ITC. We didn't have so nice experience in Kerala houseboats, so were not sure how good these houseboats at Srinagar would be. To our pleasant surprise, Gurkha houseboats were just amazing. They were maintained in an excellent... More

Very pretty houseboats in Nageen Lake (6 of them) and we stayed in #2. The interiors were immaculately clean and beautifully maintained. Kashmiri handicrafts adorned the interiors and the caretakers proudly narrated the history of the houseboats and their owners. Highlight was the food which was homely and delicious. A walk in the garden at the back was wonderful. Very... More
