We had booked super deluxe room in this Houseboat through Makemytrip for 1 Night i.e 15-June-13 to 16-June-13
Our first impressions for this houseboat were not good as when we reach at Ghat no 9 of Dal lake to board in for the houseboat and requested Ghat incharge to call Shikara of De Laila he asked to load our luggage in the Shikara of De Laila ourself as shikarawala is not a Potter or Coolie.Anyway we hired a Coolie and got the Luggage loaded in the Shikara.
Secondaly When we reached the houseboat the caretaker shifted our luggage in third class room with a stinking smell of matresses and water and which even do not gives a look of deluxe room although we had booked a Super Deluxe room so we refused to check in then he showed us other rooms of same standard finally we decided to checkout then caretaker of the houseboat talked to some lady in the Office of De laila and showed us the room that we had booked for and we checked in.This is the way how they cheat thier guests.
The quality of breakfast was also very poor it is suggestive to skip the breakfast rather then taking it here.also no internet or wifi access available as mentioned in the website.
On the other hand the super deluxe room bears a traditional kashmiri look and gives a royal feeling .Sitting outside in the balcony/Deck of the houseboat and enjoying views of Dal and Zabarwan Hills gives very heavenly feeling.Staff was also very helpful and Co-Operative
