Wow experience. One of my favorite places to stay in srinagar.The service are on top and the location is great. All the staff is very well trained and courteous. The food is awesome. Kashmir is know for its hospitality and this place is no exception. Stayed there with family for a day and I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in a home away from home.
I completely enjoyed the visit .. The interior of the boat was fabulous.They welcomed us whole heartedly and made us know each and every corner of the boat.I will make my next trip asap and will suggest it to my other companions.
Beautiful houseboat with a great ambience. Pleasant and helpful staff. Do not expect a hotel experience. This is a great Houseboat and the experience is worth it. It's situated very near to ghat 13 and has a convenience to reach any point in Srinagar
Warning: Like every Houseboat, this one too has many rooms - 4 cheap side rooms with no view and very less embellishments, 1 suite room (not really a suite but only a larger room with some better furniture) with no great view, which costs you a bomb; and a terrace king suite with a grand view of the Dal Lake, which costs you a nuclear bomb. So choose wisely. Pardon the choice of words, but Kashmir is thoroughly safe and a great place to enjoy for tourists. Location: The houseboat is not located in the best of locales. Very close to the ghat / road. No great view to see and a bit noisy because of its closeness to the road. Hospitality: Rude caretaker Mr. Hasan. The owner should take note that Mr. Hasan takes tourists for granted. The only place in J&K, I found obnoxious behaviour by the host. Kashmir and Ladakh is otherwise full of extremely warm and hospitable hosts. Mr. Hasan is a rotten apple. The Houseboat: The pictures shown by the owners are not entirely correct as the houseboat screams for maintenance. Half the lights and none of the door latches work. The bathroom has no curtains and has direct view from the restaurant area, very disconcerting with no privacy. Then there's the elegant, wood panelled dining room with three large dining tables and chandeliers. But they seem to be for show only. The host refused to serve us our meals there and rudely ordered us to partake of the food from a pathetic room outside the houseboat that he called a 'restaurant' which had a buffet. Finally after haggling and some very rude behaviour, we must say we did get served in the royal dining room inside the houseboat. A dream come true but after much heartburn for getting it. Finally some words of encouragement, if you survive the host's behaviour, as we did, you'll thoroughly enjoy the stay, as all said and done, broken latches, poor maintenance and anything else can't take away the beautiful experience of a houseboat and the peaceful Dal... It takes away all the negativity and drowns you into its serene bosom.…
Stay was made so pleasant. Tahir bhai and his team was so kind & helpful. Made us more comfortable irrespective of the language barrier. Give it a try without second thought. Home cooked food was served.
We stay in Meena Group of House Boat in Month of June for 01 Night the expriance was amazing. The food quality, Accommodation & Rooms Service are very nice. House is neat and clean. Thank You for Great experiance
This place has its own vibe. The ambience and the interiors are amazing. Great food with excellent services. Good place for hangouts and chill out with friends and family. Would like to visit this place again.
Loved the houseboat, the architecture, the rooms, the cleanliness, the hospitality, the food specially the Kashmiri Cuisines and the view of Dal lake from terrace. The staff there was very cooperative and helpful.
Was worried since I was traveling solo but was received warmly by everyone! Dinner and breakfast were above average! Rooms were clean! Evening view of Dal lake was amazing! Shikara ride is must! No complaints as such!
Best houseboat in the Dal Lake me. The hospitality is awesome, people were very helpful. Yes, being a houseboat there are some limitations and you have to keep an open mind regarding the infrastructure but the crew was really helpful and attentive. Food was good too.
