We last stayed there in February, 2004 but I'm happy and proud to say that the hospitality and helpful nature of the staff hasn't changed. The food was excellent, Majid bhai was always around to pamper us and Issaq managed everything flawlessly! It was great meeting Mr. Rafiq Wangnoo after 17 years and it felt great that he remembered us! His visit to check on our comfort was indeed touching, but that's what ITC hospitality is all about! One big family 😊❤️

Many tourists prefer staying in the busy Dal Lake when we chose to stay at the peaceful and quiet adjoining Nagin Lake which has better views of sunrise and sunsets and beautiful houseboats in the vicinity. WelcomHeritage has approx 6 houseboats next to each other and we were allotted the first one which was absolutely well kept and maintained compared to the other non branded/ standard ones in the area. The staff is simply incredible along with the cook, caretakers who took care of all our needs in the middle of the night as well. They were extremely friendly and cooperative and also the manager came twice on check in and check out to greet us and give us some tips and suggestions on the area. Its a beautiful shikara ride around this houseboat for 1-2 hours and you can be at peace of mind with nothing to worry about when at this houseboat. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. The living room has some incredible carved windows and doors and unique heating systems. The bathrooms are sparkling clean and spacious with bathtub and has geysers for constant hot water. You feel at home when served the amazing tasteful made from the heart ghar ka khana after staying in various hotels across Kashmir. The warmth of the staff, the food, the coziness and the views will definitely take me back to this houseboat once again. A must stay!

The experience of staying on the Lake in the Houseboat is special. Totally radical yet serene ! Highly recommended for a tranquil get away from the hectic heat and noise of the cities. The pampering by the Gurkha Heritage Family makes it all the more special 😇

We had booked this place for a night in March 2021 and were happy when we reached here. As you enter the living area and then to your room, it is a superlative experience. We had a suite room and it was decorated very well. From furniture to carpets, someone has paid good attention. We were looked after well and delicious food was served during our stay. Location is peaceful and there is a beautiful park in the back of houseboat.
