I stay during peak winter here when out side minus 8 degree along with my wife. The owner arrange all things in 1 place. The food was great like home made. The heating arrangement was great. The bed heater was very warm during night And enjoyed a lot.
Stayed in the deluxe room of The Shelter Group of Houseboats between Jan. 21-24 2019. Situated at a very central location with very pleasant staff. They organized an amazing tour of the city and outskirts for us. Srinagar was very cold at this time, but we managed with their Bukhari (fireplace) and electric blankets, despite power cuts. The food provided was delicious and ample. I would definitely recommend these houseboats for young travelers.
The house is so nice and the owner is so kind and welcome. It had been fun every day. Before we went there, we are afraid that we cannot eat Indian food. However, the staff is so nice that we can request what kind of food we want to have each meal (For example, we are from Thailand, therefore, we asked them to cook in Thai style such as Thai-ish fried chicken). The food there was awesome! We went there in Winter and the house is warm (with the manual heater available inside). However, the dining area is a little bit cold since there is no heater in that room. Overall, the best experiences in Kashmir. Would suggest anyone to stay there!
Just to share most people at Srinagar and Kashmir are very kind and helpful. Our 6D5N Kashmir Trip was awesome as we got best tour service from Royal India Expedition. Thanks to Mr Aijaz for good arrangements for six of us. We enjoyed stay at houseboat which is located at Jhelum River. The experienced we had are so memorable. The decorations inside are very nice. We also enjoyed with the food. The staff are very good as they took care all of us like a family. In short, the accomodations and hospitality provided were excellent. If someone out there who is looking to visit Kashmir I strongly recommend The Shelter Group of Houseboats as your place to stay and also The Shelter Heritage, A Boutique Hotel.
First time in Srinagar during Jan 2, 2019 to Jan 6, 2019 we so happy with snow and service of The Shelter Group Of Houseboats. They take care as family :) Good food, good place and good memory for me ❄️❤️⛴
