    Outstanding places for stay . Travelling in india from last 2 week. This was not Boats house for us Just like my home in valley. The staff is wonderful and helped arranging the trip for 1 week in kashmir. The media report fake information about kashmir . I suggest all other traveller must visit the valley .

    Great place but 4 bed option online is misleading. 4 bed option is a mat on the floor. Only option pretty much is individual rooms which are also good value for money.

    Very good behavior on the part of the boat owners. Full guidance in and around Kashmir. I regret that I didn't stay here after I returned from my trek. Will book again next time I visit for Tarsar Marsar. 🌟

    Being my first visit to Srinagar,the hosts helped me get around the city with minimal hassles.A quaint 40-year old houseboat, it serves its guests in an altogether homely fashion.Nevertheless,bringing out certain odd points wud probably benefit the overall satisfaction of its clients. 1.The cost of Shikara and local autowalas that they charge through their contacts is more than what you might yourself find out. 2.Room service can be improved in terms of regularly cleaning the rooms during stay
