Reviewed 16 June 2016

This is by far one of the best stays we have ever had, To begin with, the staff, They were unbelievably polite and very helpful for all our needs. The interiors were so great that it made us never want to leave the room... The rooms were neat and we had access to hot water round the clock. The price was very nominal and I cannot wait to recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit srinagar. The food they provide is mouthwatering and its authentic kashmiri as well.... Overall we had the greatest time In Kashmir and the stay made it even more memorable.

Room Tip: The boat was parked in running waters, but we still had the smoothest stay

Our room was small although with all the amenities you needed in your stay(like hotel).. hot water bath,Heating facility,drinking water,in-house food, TV ,Phone, Cozy bed, electric blanket etc...
Rooftop was for doing Party though we didn't used it.
In-house served Food was just awesome, it was just home cooked... and not of any hotel's/restaurant's.
Separate Dining space felt just like home.

Room Tip: Just go for Deluxe category rooms...

I had stayed with my family for 4 days and it was a very good experience. The host and the staff are very cordial and they do everything to make you feel at home. Special mention to the food, which is again just like home. Definitely recommended.

Be clear that they are located on jhelum river and not dal lake or nigeen lake. As compared to dal or nigeen jhelum river has lesser number of houseboats and is very calm and peaceful far away from noises and traffic.
The hosts are more than awesome and will make you feel like a family member. They gave us good tips on what places to go and how much are the costs associated with taxis, horses, sledging etc.
House boats are well maintained and clean. Their property is not the best but 5 stars for the hosts. Wifi is free but you can only access it at reception and not rooms as signal is not good.

Room Tip: make sure to tell them in advance if you want to have a meal in the houseboat.
