Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Houseboats are unique in the world to Kashmir valley. For the visitor to Srinagar, staying in a houseboat is an out of world experience. The houseboat came into being during the British Era, when the Maharaja of Kashmir refused them permission to build on dry land. The resourceful Britishers took to the water, living in ornate houseboats. The style has hardly changed from the first houseboat built by Mr. Conard in 1888 right down to boats being built today and since then the houseboat become mascots of Kashmir Tourism and gained a worldwide acclaim. If your dreams include a sojourn on a houseboat in Kashmir, Kingfishers darting between the blossoming lotus and snow-capped mountains lining the horizon and each day concluded by a sunset of copper and gold, then imagine yourself on Nigeen Lake. Nearly two miles in length and overlooked by the imposing ruin of the Hari Parbat fort. Our boats are categorized in the Deluxe category. For unsurpassed value and an unforgettable holiday, we invite you to relax as Kashmiri prince in the carefree atmosphere of the New Golden Flower Heritage houseboat and enjoy the timeless majestic scenery of the Himalayas for yourself. We take pride and pleasure in providing the finest of houseboats experiences blended with the expertise necessary to enjoy Kashmir to its fullest potential.

I already stayed in this houseboat in 16 march 2016 and want to write review but not get any link for write review
Dear Sir, The answer suggested by the gentleman from Gurgaon is the best way to write the review. It holds good for any tourist facility listed in Tripadvisor website.

Dear Yaqub and Ayub, We are Stéphane, Nicolas and Ant, 3 cyclists from France and England. At the end of August we will travel to Kashmir to cycle the Srinagar-Leh-Manali highway. Before we start the trip we would like to spend the night on one of the legendary Srinagar houseboats. We are very interested in straying on the New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat, it looks beautiful. I have some questions I hope you can help me with: - Can 3 people sleep in one room? We are happy to have two of us in a double bed and one in a single bed. - Can your boat be accessed directly via the lake's bank, or does one need a Shikara to reach it? - Would there be enough space on the boat to keep our bicycles? Thank you very much in advance! Looking forward to hearing back from you. Best regards, Stéphane
Dear stethane Greetings I have received your mail and noted it's contents very carefully.well please note the below: 1. We have 1 Double bed plus 1 single bed in each room so 3 persons can sleep in one room. 2. Our Houseboat is moored in middle of lake and we can provide you Shikara for crossings from and to 3. We own our own garden ( Island) so you can keep your cycles there only and are 100% safe I look forward to hear from you soon. Warm regards Yakub
