The owners were very helpful at satisfying the needy travellers. Arranging rides, logistics, helping to research destinations, permits, etc. etc. The breakfast/dinner buffets were delicious and abundant. We stay in both properties of shelter Ajaz, thank you for making our stay in Srinagar comfortable and efficient. Your family excels in the arts of hospitality. If I come back I will make sure to stay at your shelter heritage again

We used both properties of shelter group at Srinagar. It was amazing stay for us and for my friends. The food was great and houseboat is central located near to all chowk city. It has great vibe during night time. We had wonderful stay. Even we at Dal lake for 1night but lot of hassle of hawkers every time.

I along with group of 12 members from Coimbatore stayed at this property located near to main market area of Kashmir valley ( Lal chowk). It's 5 minutes walking distance to city centre. We got great vibe of Kashmir here. They arranged our plan very well and the driver was very friendly and helpful for us which they provided. Thanks for organised our trip well. And they not treat you as guest.they treat you as family members. They saved our money a lot.

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.
