We stayed 4 nights on Mascot houseboat and loved every minute of it. Our every need (even those we didn't know we had!) was catered for - great food, very attentive and friendly service - and what a houseboat. Our room was most comfortable (great beds - not always so in India) and what a view from our bedroom window, it was a joy to wake in the morning. The houseboat is beautifully made and we were interested to see the new restoration work on the next Mascot boat, very talented craftsmen.
I wanted to read - but sitting in the sunshine on the top of the boat, there was just too much to watch: kingfishers, kites, the occasional shikara gliding past ... and the snowy mountains across the lake. Just heavenly.
Yaseem and his staff made us extremely welcome - we do so hope we'll be able to come back.
