Home away from home Home away from home

by NazeerAlli on January 31, 2017

The personal service from Tariq and his brother, the cuisine which reeks of Kashmir authenticity, the valuable advice as regards touring/shopping/do's & don'ts etc, the conversations during and after supper all made us forget that we were away from home. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. A truly memorable experience. Summer is the time to visit as winters are freezing cold

Just okay Just okay

Rooms were well appointed, very clean and neat. Location was good, close enough to the road but far enough from noise. Overall experience was just okay, not what we were expecting really. Whole culture around tourists and visitors is highly sales-oriented. Everybody wants to sell you something all the time. Owner talked very nicely when we reached there, and then tried to sell some tours which we politely declined. After that we could sense a change in attitude, there was nothing above and beyond in terms of services. It was just at the minimum expected level. We were charged for water also, in general the romantic idea of houseboat stay was crushed by over-commercialization and constant buy-this-buy-that hassle.

The most authentic houseboat with the loveliest hosts The most authentic houseboat with the loveliest hosts

I have just returned after spending 5 days in beautiful Kashmir. We stayed on the Golden Hopes Houseboat for 4 nights and had the most amazing time. Tariq and Ray really looked after us. We had a few concerns about heading out of Srinagar before visiting Kashmir due to the security situation. But we didn't once feel worried and Tariq guided us and took us on some wonderful day trips horse riding, trekking, seeing forests that looked like they were out of a fairy tale, glaciers and amazing scenery Kashmir did not disappoint it was everything I had dreamed it would be....we had loads of fun on the lake too visiting the fruit and vegetable market, the cruise around the lakes and also we had a go at rowing ourselves. Tariq and Ray really looked after was amazing how hospitable they were - they feel like family now. The food their mum prepares for dinner is so delicious we ate onboard every night. I can't wait to come back one day and felt sad to leave. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to people who want a peaceful setting to really enjoy nature ... you see wild eagles diving for fish from your view on their veranda and just can enjoy watching all the boats go by. We also didn't get any hassle from we are a little further into the lake they seemed to leave us alone. If we wanted to get snacks and drinks Tariq just called up a man who delivered us what we wanted by boat....The houseboat has loads of character and is really amazing value for money......I can honestly say after visiting 70 countries i haven't stayed anywhere in the World where you are made to feel this much at home by such kind and honest people. Thanks Tariq and Ray.... from Amanda :-)

Wonderful experience Wonderful experience

It was awesome. The views of the lake were breathtaking at any time of the day. So peaceful. The boat was incredibly comfortable - luxurious furnishings and spacious bedrooms. Plus the location of the houseboat is on the quieter side .We were looked after exceptionally well by the houseboat owner and manager ( John and Tarikh) was too so kind and friendly. We ate very well indeed and the food was delicious. It was a perfect place to end to a busy day.

A houseboat in a beautiful, serene, tranquil location !! A houseboat in a beautiful, serene, tranquil location !!

A very professional, customer oriented service by Tariq and Riaz brothers. They Offer tasty food and well thought travel advice. This immensely helps in taking sensible decision. Only snag is that dinner is somewhat high-priced.....otherwise a overall heavenly experience.
