Hi. It is beautiful houseboat but rooms are not warm at all. They do not provide you slippers however ask your shoes to be put outside. In the freezing cold of January it was not a very great experience living in Crystal houseboat. Attendant was very helpful and ready to provide any kind of comfort. But our room had manual wood heater which was warm for only half an hour rest of the time room was freezing cold. There were electric blankets but not very helpful while doing other tasks except sitting idle in the blanket. There was a space in the window which was making whole room like we are sitting outside near tHe Dal lake. Food was very good. In Kashmir everywhere food is oily and spicy. So that ways food was served hot and delicious. Overall not a very great experience.

Very well maintained houseboat with excellent hospitality! The caretaker mansoor went out of his way to make us comfortable. The interiors were intricately done. The food was excellent and personalized to our taste. Highly recommended.

We had booked a stay in houseboat on our last day in Kashmir through Visit Ladakh Incoming. We stayed in Shehnaz houseboat of Royal group of houseboats. The location was way inside but when we reached and saw lotus garden, we were happy. It was a peaceful stay except every few minutes someone or other salesman would come to show goods even if you are not in a mood of shopping. Worst part was we were not even provided with bottled water in deluxe houseboat. My friend suddenly got sick and when she drank water provided in houseboat, it was not good at all. On raising our voices the caretaker guy told us bottled water is available. We bought our own bottles in the evening. Thankfully we got simple food as requested and my friend too got better soon.
