My wife and me stayed one night at House boat Lake Victoria.The house boat was well decorated & charming.The room allotted was quite specious,clean & well furnished. Sign of aristocracy were every where. The foods served were delicious. The hospitality of Mr Hamid was beyond imagination. He took care of us with utmost respect & sincerity. Though we were alone in the house boat we never felt insecured. If I would visit Kashmir again I will stay at the house boat Lake Victoria.I will recommend this house boat for you & your family members.

“Excellent stay at budget price”
Reviewed March 21, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

One thing to keep in mind that, house boats are static and do not move in Dal lake. We stayed in houseboat for 4 nights and had an amazing experience. It is in 3rd row @ Dal lake, so you need to take a shikara ride to touch land and it is free, so you get around 20 minutes of boating free everyday if you go out only once. Shaukatbhai was managing the boat that time and he himself suggested us to book using other portals using discount coupons so we get bookings cheaper. We paid around 1500 per room per night including breakfast and dinner. Everyday they asked us what we want to have in breakfast and dinner and they were preparing based on our choice. Both were served hot and fresh. Cost of AC/Heater is separate and not included in room cost, we paid 200 per day for heating as march is off season, otherwise they charge more. Houseboat was neat and clean and whole experience of staying in Dal lake was amazing, must be tried if you are going to Srinagar. They have hot water 24x7, only issue is that in winter pipes supplying hot water gets so cold that you have to open the tap and wait for hot water to come for 5 minutes, so there is a wastage of water, as they have central water heating mechanism. Houseboat has living room and dining room and 4 bedrooms. Living and dining rooms you need to share with other guests. Another limitation is that shikaras which are required to reach to houseboat only runs till 20:00, so you need to get back to Dal lake by that time, or need to talk to the boat manager so they make sure to get something arranged if you are coming back late.
