It was an excellent experience in the houseboat. A beautiful houseboat with lots of wood works and efficient staffs. A nice place to be in the paradise of earth. It would be still better if the heater is on in houseboat to kill the chill.

Considering the place, it is beautifully built and having various facilities. However some efforts require on maintenance works. You can feel the historical lake from the houseboat. Food & service also satisfactory.

For reaching the houseboat Shikara ride require. It is a good example of wooden work. Having sufficient facilities. Staff also providing nice service. However maintenance can be done at many places in the houseboat to make it more attractive.

The stay was for 5 nights and each moment was cherishable as there was a touch of homeliness and security. The... More

The only good thing about this lodging is that it is situated on Dal Lake and it has amazing views of the snow capped mountains. Access to the houseboat is via a shikara- which is awesome- unless it's raining - like it was when we were leaving, n there aren't any umbrellas or much protection from the rain. At first... More

This is a very cozy place at Dal Lake, Srinagar. It's a unique experience in India to stay in a houseboat with all the comfort and yet at the lake. The morning view of the mountains is amazing as it was the shikara ride!!

Spent a night in this House Boat on the Dal(Gate-13). Excellently decorated rooms and very friendly service. The house boat can be reached by shikara and while there a lot of sellers of handicrafts will visit with their wares(look for the paper mache items). The breakfast made by the elderly person on 24th December morning was simply delicious. The bathrooms... More
