I and my 4 friends have visited Kashmir on first week of June, 2019. The Shelter Group of Houseboats welcomed us perfectly, even we have come in small group. The owners arranged trip smoothly and gave us nice information about places and activities. About this houseboat we have stayed, it's “just walk distance” from Lal Chowk Market and Polo View Rd., nice location but not noisy. Great services and facilities. Clean room with attached bathroom. And, I like the morning atmosphere of Jhelum River with birds and ducks, too.
I visit this houseboats 2nd time. First came August along with my friend. And this time we was group of 7 just stay 1 night in srinagar and remaining nights we stay at gulmarg. During winter the weather is very cold but they provided excellent arrangements for heating. Electric heater and room arrangements was great.
Food was home made and very delicious.
Thanks for great stay 2nd time.
Stayed in the deluxe room of The Shelter Group of Houseboats between Jan. 21-24 2019. Situated at a very central location with very pleasant staff. They organized an amazing tour of the city and outskirts for us.
Srinagar was very cold at this time, but we managed with their Bukhari (fireplace) and electric blankets, despite power cuts. The food provided was delicious and ample.
I would definitely recommend these houseboats for young travelers.
The house is so nice and the owner is so kind and welcome. It had been fun every day. Before we went there, we are afraid that we cannot eat Indian food. However, the staff is so nice that we can request what kind of food we want to have each meal (For example, we are from Thailand, therefore, we asked them to cook in Thai style such as Thai-ish fried chicken). The food there was awesome! We went there in Winter and the house is warm (with the manual heater available inside). However, the dining area is a little bit cold since there is no heater in that room. Overall, the best experiences in Kashmir. Would suggest anyone to stay there!
I loved my stay there. All types of facilities are available in the room. Specially I want to mention about the hospitality of the hosts there. They took care of every bit of our stay in the houseboat. In addition to that they also helped us with very efficient guidance about our trip. I would definitely recommend this.
