Plan was just made 15days ahead to go to kashmir on 7th june..we started with booking shelter houseboat as wen wanted to be close to main market place at Lalchowk..The owner, Mr. Saifi was a warm, soft and very helpful from the very beginning of our conversation and remained till end..We went to book entire package with him for 7 day trip to kashmir..All the itinerary was planned by him which was well executed including our 2 day stay at Pahalgam..Packages also included our day travel to gulmarg and sonemarg..and of course the evening Shikara ride in Dal lake.Houseboat stay was also pleasant and all the staff team were very helpful and quick to our needs..everything was neat and clean with extensive kashmiri furnishings and carvings..Food was also good and homely..Mr. saifi has been very helpful, patient and honest answering every query of us..Also we overpaid through some faulty Paytm transactions which were returned to us later after delhi arrival...Thanks for the well planned hasselfree trip which was also light on our pockets..I would definitely like it to recommend it to others who want to travel hasselfree in a mid budget plan.

We had a family trip to Kashmir in June 22. My experience in houseboat was awesome. Mr.Mohd. Saifi the house boat owner - The shelter group of house boats.arranged the tour. He is a wonderful person. So compromising, co-operative and simple. He has done and executed our tour very well. I planned this tour with lot of apprehension, which in turn turned out to be an extremely joyful experience. stay in houseboat was really awesome. The vehicle arrangements..the Driver, the destination day wise Planning all worked out extremely good. Mr.Saifi's brother Aijad was also very helpful and support ing. I really want to thank Mr.Saifi and team for making our trip wonderful, excellent. One more thing to say is I liked the simplicity of Mr.Saifi and his brother, they are so easy going. In All a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Shelter Group of Houseboats when u visit Kashmir.

I booked this houseboat for one night through yatra.com with breakfast and dinner as a part of package. I was told that this houseboat is a three star property. On reaching the houseboat i was shocked to find that it was below average and badly managed houseboat, the interior was very old, carpets were old and soiled, bathroom has dirty water supply. Although it had a bath tub, but it was leaking so could not be used These houseboat served us cold and stale food which they bring from outside. during breakfast they served us only one Parantha on asking for more they refused to entertain When we bought this to the attention of manager, he started behaving rudely. Please avoid this houseboat, as later on we realized it is even not located in dal lake. I had worst experience of my life here

Best place to go to if you are looking for a good hotel with reasonable price and who treats you like a family, food is homemade and good. The Hotel management and staff are so helpfull, i would 💯 recommend you to go ahead and book your rooms. They have heaters, electric blankets, hot geysers and home cooked food. They also provide very reasonable price for day trips according to your stay.
