    I was really happy to find a houseboat at an affordable price. The boat was built in 1973 and is very old and creaky, but that only adds to its charm. Owners were very hospitable and lovely to chat with. I discussed a few minor things with them that they could improve and they were very receptive. They also explained the various tour/trekking options on the first day but then did not push them on me. Food was extremely delicious! Recommend if you want a very quiet, relaxing spot for a good price

    Royal lodge is a beautiful house boat that offers you the peaceful serenity of dal lake. The lovely staff here offer you a warm welcoming to Srinagar and will help you with any questions or problems you may have. The food here is 10/10 and has kept me wanting to stay even longer. Overall a very good experience that I recommend to everyone.

    We ended up staying at the Royal lodge for 10 days including two treks/tours organised by the owners - a 4 day Great Lakes trek and a 3 day boat tour. Both trips were very well organised, took us to interesting places and we enjoyed great treatment and (lots of) good food on both. The family who live in the boat next door looked after us very well and made our stay comfortable and easy - food was consistently tasty and free water/tea/coffee was available. We'd recommend this houseboat!

    Excellent customer service from our host, Feroz. We opted to select the airport pickup/dropoff and it was well worth it, especially given the security constraints in Kashmir. Lunch & dinner were delicious, breakfast was lacklustre but convenient nevertheless. Feroz offered to arrange trekking for us in Kashmir, made sure that we could easily get around Dal Lake, negotiated bus rides for us, and even dropped off our forgotten jacket + phone at the bus station when we forgot it.

    Staying on Dal Lake is an absolute must in Srinagar. The father of the owner was the loveliest guy, always checking I had everything I needed and making sure to put bottles of water in the fridge for me so that it was cold. The food here was also wonderful. The owner took me for a tour of Srinagar but I didn’t think it was worth it, not for the price anyway (which I wasn’t told until the end). The owner also booked me a tour to Leh but it was very expensive and didn’t deliver what he’d promised.

    Awful hospitality and arrogant behavior on part of the owner. They tried to guilt trip us into taking 1 shared room when we had booked 2 different rooms about a month in advance. The rooms were less than satisfactory, creaking floorboards, it looked like as if it was in a state of disrepair. My room didn't have a fan and when we were leaving the owner again tried to guilt trip us to take a costlier cab option with them. Overall didn't like the stay here.

    Free airport pickup was a life saver so Thankyou so much for that. But the constant hassle for organising overpriced tours, overpriced food and dinner. The repetitive hassling for offering tea it was too much. Before we left the boat they asked us to write a 10/10 review which was intimidating as they were taking us to land. They constantly said “we offer you a fair price, no scamming” which we instantly knew was a bit of a scam! Only go here in a large group to overpower their hassling.
