What a fantastic place to stay! Very comfortable accommodation, nice rooms, warm lounge and dining area. We stayed in early November so the weather was a little chilly. Mr Din lit the fire in our room each night and offered to do it in the mornings before we got up also! Ther

We stayed at the Royal Palace HouseBoat for 1 day and the experience was great! The house boat was lovely with its carvings on the roof and lovely wood carved furniture. The rooms and stay gave a feeling that we are staying in a luxurious place. The boat had a nice living room wi

We stayed in the Young Crystal Palace houseboat for three days where we were looked after in the kindest, friendliest way by Gulam and 'Moon'. They could not have provided better service and attention.

We are staying on House Boat Royal Palace, which is on a quiet mooring among a group of five luxury houseboats. The boat is lovely, with five ensuite (with bathtubs!) bedrooms - so it’s likely you will share. Ghulam looks after us very well, and the cook produces delicious food.

When one books a house boat thru a package taken from a portal like Make my trip, do they specify the name of the houseboat in advance,Do we need to carry drinking water or is mineral drinking water provided by the houseboats free of charge. Is liquor allowed, available & how is the pricing? Any other tips as to what we should carry,(travelling in month of june) are welcome
we have planned to visit kashmir towards the end of Mar for 6 day, can you update me with the weather at that time.
I was in Kashmir in October/November, so I cant answer accurately. However, I can say that in the weeks before I went, I would daily check the Kashmir & Jammu weather on Google, which helped give an overall picture.

Hello, we are planning a trip to Srinagar in the month of April. we are six adults and 1 kid (4 years). Would like to know if staying in a houseboat is a good idea and also some good places to visit. some pointers to good hotels in Srinagar would be helpful too. Thanks.
Hello, I will recommend to stay in houseboat on Dal Lake as usually we stay in hotels for holiday trip but staying houseboat in Dal Lake is nice experience. You can choose Royal group houseboat which are really good and properly maintained. From Srinagar you can do same day trip to Gulmarg, Sonmarg or Pahalgam all are 2-3 hours drive each way from Srinagar. Hope this information help you.

Hello, We are a party of five and interested in 1 night stay on April 25th. We would like 1 room with 2 people and 1 room for 3 people and dinner and breakfast included. We would also like to include the Shikara ride to the boathouse and if possible a free complimentary ride on the Dal lake. Can you please let us know what is the condition of the lake and the boathouse after the recent floods? Can you give us a one net price inclusive of all discounts and a ride to the airport on the 26th? Many thanks.
Hi, Greeting for the day... I am planning honeymoon in kashmir and wanted to book your house boat. I wish to know can I book car for roaming around from your houseboat.
Hi you didn't specify the month of travel as that is makes lots of difference. In general you can book a house boat from internet or through travel agent, please ask for a private Sikara which you need from house boat to Ghat (land). Yes car can be booked day basis , I will rather suggest not to drive but hire a car with driver, they generally follow govt published rates.

"Cyrstal Palace has a small land next to it where children could play."
"Staying in Houseboat is a completely different feeling. If somebody really want to have peace of mind, he should stay in houseboat."
"Opt for New Crystal Palace Houseboat, truly a luxury experience! Need to go by a Shikara to reach these houseboats from the Dal Lake Pier."
"Choose Shalimar or Crystal Palace Houseboats. They have a very good view!"
"All delightful, room 1 is the nearest to the kitchen but has the bonus of wi fi router just outside."
