This boutique 14 room hotel is in the heart of the city at the Nagin lake. The hospitality, warmth, beauty of this hotel is something else. You really dont feel like ur on this planet. Food was AMAZING. my husband was slamming on their meat and this roti called "Sheermal" is a must have. It feels like home cause they have these beautifl cosy common rooms on the first floor that use to be our hang out place at the hotel in the evenings and the morning we use to order our kahwa and walnut cookies and sit by the lake on the lawn. The lake is full of lotus flowers its just GORGEOUS i can go on and on and on. BEST stay of my trip.

Room tip: Lake Facing room

Its a rich man's villa on Nigeen Lake converted to a botique hotel. Tastefully done up, with about 12-14 rooms and a beautiful location, this hotel has my heart. It feels like home, not a hotel.

The big lawn is a delight to sit in at sunset and sunrise.

Staff is nice and friendly.

Food is quite good, though slightly on the expensive side (esp the dinner buffet).

Rooms decor is acceptable, though not newly furnished, they are clean. Bathroom is clean and reasonable sized. Taps and faucets are not latest, hence water flow was slow at times. But hot water is available in plenty.

The hotel feels safe and feels like home.

Look forward to staying here again soon!

Room tip: Take the rooms in the main wing. They are bigger.

Stunning location by Nagin Lake.
Old mansion superbly renovated. Great gardens. Lake bank. Fabulous meal. Caring staff.
Could improve on the small things - intercom wasn’t working, wifi was weak, AC remote needed battery change, a bulb needed replacement. Options/menu could be better explained.
But overall, highly recommended. Will be back soon!

this is the second time i stayed here and fortunately i got the same lovely room on the ground floor.
the food is very good, and the staff accomodates personal requests.
the sunset is to die for and views of Nageen lake quite breathtaking.
Of course one does need a personal vehicle to get around

One of tbe best properties i have visited in my life. It is under the radar. A boutique home converted into a hotel. It has history and artefacts that you find in ny palace hotel. The locatìon is right on the lake . Its like staying on a houseboat.
The service is so good that it is unreal. There is no wish that was not completed.
Mr. HAMEED is gem that you very rarely come across. Also they have an in house travel guide JAVED.who must be taken along for a different and filtered genuine feel of Kashmir. There is just knowledge flowing here. The food is fantastic. The rrestaurant overlook the lake . Every meal becimes an experience.
Hot water is 24 hrs. The linen and rooms are heritage and classy. A Sony TV will a full fledged TATA sky.
Every feel a global 5 star is here . Best place in Kashmir. Dont miss this .
