Is economic and hygienic as well. Looks very well maintained and the good is good too..If traveling with a family of8-12 members, you can opt to book an entire houseboat, which is what we did. Lastly,a late night shikara ride at the dal Lake is a must!

Excellent hosts. Both Aijaz and Rafeeq are so so helpful with everything and the food made by his family is exceptional, both veg and non veg. The houseboat is super clean and has pretty good amenities. I would totally recommend anyone visiting Srinagar to check out Golden Crest at number 12 ghat.

It was a pleasure to stay in GOLDEN CREST, with such friendly people which made our stay perfect. Perfect location, amazing home made food, lovely environment, worth staying in that house boat. The owner and family had great attitude towards their guest which made our stay even more comfortable. Right form the airport pick up, to the site seeing, till the airport drop on our last day, we completely enjoyed it. Thanks to Mr. Aijaz and family for providing such great service and making us feel that we were at our home. I would love to come back and stay here again. Very recommended to stay there.

The houseboat is relatively new, clean and spacious. we had heard a lot of stories on houseboats being small and dirty. this one was very clean with a very courteous staff. They helped us a lot specially since we had elderly parents in the the group. The location of the boat is not that great as its kind of hidden in a corner, the food was homely and well made. dont forget to ask them to put less oil and spices

It was a great experience to stay in houseboat.
Service is very good , whatever you need, just let them know they guys will arrange.
And if we talk about food, then it is just excellent.
Usually people think that it is not convenient to stay in houseboat but its not true .It is completely convenient.

1. If you are looking for a homely stay at house-boat on Dal Lake, that's too without troubling your pocket, House Boat Golden Crest can be your golden opportunity.

2. If you are coming from Srinagar Airport (Sheikh ul Alam Airport), direct your vehicle towards Dal Gate and then for Passport Office, Srinagar. Just opposite of this office, there is Ghat Number 12, the first land mark to reach House Boat Golden Crest. Your another land mark may be 'Kareem's Restaurant' at your starboard side while coming from Dal Gate and just few steps ahead, you will find 'Ghat Number 12' at your port side. From that Ghat (Jetty), Shikara will take you to your destination. If you have done your booking through internet, then houseboat-owners will solely be responsible for carrying you from ghat to houseboat. And if you have no pre-booking, then straightway ask for the 'Butterfly Group' of Shikara-drivers. Any of the members will take you to House Boat Golden Crest.

3. Although this house boat is not set in the front-line of the lake, it has covered up this back-drop by beautiful natural ambiance all around. A cool breeze over Dal Lake, a panoramic & distant view of Srinagar city and amongst all these, this beautiful house boat with lucrative wooden arts and frames; these all will make you fresh and rejuvenated. Tidiness is one of the endeavors of this house boat. All the staffs/owner are ready to address any of your issues, whether it is day or night. Their demeanor is really praise-worthy. In addition, the house boat owners can also help to organize tour for sight-seeing at Gulmarg, Pahalgam etc. Precisely, staying at House Boat Golden Crest means having a perfectly hassle-free holiday trip, if you are capable to manage/ignore very trivial inconveniences. Thanks a lot Eijaj, Rafique and Bilal.

4. Lastly, I would like to request to all the travelers to not to throw your wastes or unwanted things to Dal Lake. Save Dal, Save Kashmir.

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. The hosts are friendly, everything you ask for they will try to accommodate and the food was great. They will organise an itinerary for anyone who doesn't already have one and I found that very helpful. Although my stay was in the winter while there are not very many tourists in Srinagar, this was a pleasant stay and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of going to Kashmir. Beautiful setting and great memories.
