Mesmerising View and absolutely clean and homely experience….. This boat is one of the best boat here at Nageen lake. The house staff Billal was awesome and made us feel homely… To all travellers who wants to have a house boat experience would hoghly recommend this place
We stayed for three days and it was a highly pleasant and peaceful stay. Wangnoo ji is the best in Kashmiri hospitality ! Food is delicious, comfort is complete and they take care as family. Will surely stay again
We selected this houseboat for its great reviews and stayed there for 1 night only as 3 couples and were allotted 3 rooms whole houseboat for us.The reception was great.The decor was excellent .The caretaker Mr.Bashir was very cooperative and jovial. The dinner and breakfast were good but there is severe problem of frequent and long power failure ..As per houseboat ,it was a good experience BUT i feel that most of the houseboats including this one may not be hygienic as they are booked daily and they do not have any provision of regular change or sterilization of carpet,curtains ,bed sheets,blankets etc.Being all doctors,we had this opinion of houseboats being like this -may be having allergens and molds etc in living surroundings.4 out of 6 of us got severe allergic cold ,the next morning. IN GENERAL,WE SHALL ALWAYS PREFER STAYING IN HOTELS ON LAND RATHER THAN ANY HOUSEBOAT AMONG WATERS. .…
We stayed at Wangnoo Sheraton for 4 nights. It was a beautiful experience. Starting from the intricate wood work of the house boat to the hospitality, everything surpassed my expectations. I would definitely recommend people to stay here when visiting Kashmir.
We were a group of 14 people who stayed for 4 nights here and it was an affair to remember. Amazing place on Lake Nigeen, decorated with antiques and provided with every modern amenity one would need. But best of all is the hospitality. Hamid, our caretaker, was extremely thoughtful and generous with his time. It must have been taxing to take care of so many guests but Hamid was forever ready with a smile and even anticipated our requests. Habib Saab was himself around almost every day to enquire after us. This place set the tone for the lovely trip we had in Kashmir and made our visit special and all the more memorable. If ever in Kashmir again, it will be a privilege to stay here.
Great hospitality and service by the amazing staff. We enjoyed a lot. The food served was delicious. Mr. Habib, Mr. Ibrahim, Mr. Hameed, Mr. Basheer and finally Gulaam Chacha made our stay very comfortable. Could not ask for more. :)

We stayed on this houseboat fot a night in January 2022. The Houseboat was beyond our expectations. Beautiful interiors, well decorated and had almost everything you expect in a hotel. I would say actually better than that. Bilal and the owner of Houseboat Ibrahim are very humble and attentive. They leave no stone unturned to make your stay pleasent and comfortable. You must not miss this experience in your Kashmir trip. Caution: The only issue that we faced and would love to get rectified is the heaters being turned off at 9:30 AM. Also the availability of a hot water kettle or flask would add to the comfort. In winters, it's gets very cold on houseboats in absence of heating. So if you are planning to stay whole day, then you must connect and ensure to not just Sheraton but any hotel in Kashmir that if they have 24 hours room heating and hot water availability.…
My experience here was so warm and homely that I literally had no intention to come back home for there was not any void left. Whether it’s Bashir bhai’s service, Manzoor bhai’s management or Ibrahim and his family’s affection, above and beyond care and the endless conversations that my friend and I had, made us feel so comforting. Ibrahim the owner of the houseboat even arranged the jewellery and handicraft vendors in his houseboat itself which made it convenient for us to shop at our own convenience. Besides that, they have an exclusive collection of authentic pashminas and carpets with no adulteration in their quality just like their region “Kashmir”. I have been to so many places but never found something so cordial yet private. Rooms are spacious, clean with timely room service and so are the washrooms. Every quintessential is present here with the Royal nakaashi in the living room and the lobby. Planning to send a lot of my friends soon. I hope this review helps you folks to make the right decision if looking for an isolated, calm, warm, untouched aesthetic beauty of a houseboat, Well ! Wangnoo is the habitat for you in Nagin lake. You can’t afford to miss these people, place and their devouring hospitality !!…
