We had a memorable stay for two nights. We stayed in the lake view suite which has a private terrace. The view from the terrace was stunningly beautiful. Rooms were clean. Food was limited but tasty. Last but not the least, the staff were very warm; Maqbool Ji was very caring and was always present to take care of our needs.

We stayed here for one night must say it was an amazing experience. It is a beautiful property with courteous staff. When we reached manager of the houseboat Mr. Ishaq welcomed us he made us feel at home, he introduced us to the houseboat and also upgraded our room. The caretaker of our houseboat Mr.Mushtaq took good care of us during our stay. Food here was like home made and tasty. Mr.Mushtaq asked us about our food choices and served us accordingly. Overall a wonderful experience and highly recommended.

We were booked for 2 nights stay on Gurkha Houseboat situated at Nigeen Lake. The Houseboat were on the other side of the river. There were shikaras over there. When we mentioned Gurkha houseboat we were immediately made to sit on a shikara which was associated with the houseboat. The transfers to and fro by the shikara are part of the package. We were immediately taken to Houseboat No.4 We were welcomed by Mr. Maqbool the Head Caretaker of the houseboat No.4. We were offered kahwa tea with cookies as wecome drink . As we were there for 2 nights we were upgraded to the suite on top of the houseboat which also had an open deck. The houseboat has 4 deluxe rooms at the ground level and 1 suite at the top level. The rooms are all spacious well laid out and great royal interiors. They are very neat and clean and very well maintained. The wash rooms are also spacious and well made. All toiletries similair to 5 star hotels were provided. The rooms have been provided with heater, air cooler and pedestal fans. The wooden carvings on the ceilings as well as on the sides are very artistically done. As we had an open deck with majestic view , it made our stay more memorable. Tea can be asked for on request. Dinner and breakfast served on time. More than adequate items are served and we relished all our meals. Special thanks to Mr. Maqbool and his two assistants who took special care and made our stay memorable. Nigeen lake as compared to Dal lake is clean, less crowded and peaceful. An experience of stay on Houseboat not to be missed .

We had a great stay experience at the Welcom Heritage houseboats. The house boat is very lavish and regal. The rooms are so beautiful and we had a personal balcony overlooking the great mountain and lake views of Nigeen. The staff is very courteous and the food is good - very home like and pretty standard. All in all a wonderful experience. Do recommend this hotel for the majestic views outside and the great royal interior. Though it’s a little heavy on your wallet. Would definitely recommend this for a family stay!
