Arrived by shikara from the eastern shore of Nigeen Lake, a nice introduction. But mostly traveled by Peacock car after that, hoofing it a little ways to/from a nearby park. That was more efficient, certainly. Breakfast and dinner on the houseboat, served by our houseboy. Good fare, if not exotic, at a reasonable rate. Enjoyed evenings on the prow; sunsets illuminating the mountains east of Dal Lake. Touts coming by in their shikaras -- mostly not annoying -- offering their wares. Enjoyed watching all the shikaras coming and going on the lake (and all the varieties thereof).

Room Tip: Both rooms had a single and double bed. The back room is larger.

We stayed in the houseboat for 2 nights. The ambiance is superb. In food there is not much options whatever they say you will get that only which should not be the case. Beleive if that is taken care it is a wonderful stay

From arrival to departure it was wonderful! Peacock Houseboat had us
met at the airport and from then for a week they took total care of us. Gave
us both breakfast and supper and took us sightseeing every day with
very reasonable rates for the car and driver. The houseboat staff was
very efficient and we enjoyed our daily orintations from Bahsir who I believe is
the owner. They provided far more than a deluxe houseboat. They provided
a whole vacation package. And the setting, Nagin Lake was serene--so much
better than the more famojs Dal Lake with its thousand houseboats.

Room Tip: Irrelevant. This is a houseboat.

We stayed in this houseboat for one night. Our overall experience was very good. The lake view from the houseboat is Superb. Room Quality was Superb. Interiors are nicely done and rooms are very spacious. We were bowled over by seeing bathrooms. It was spotless and very clean. Food served was fresh and tasted homemade. We had a memorable experience with peacock houseboat.
