I visited srinagar for some business meetings. And had a thought previously to stay at a boat house.... There's only one word to say in my mind...."beyond expectations '. I was not expecting a like stay like this ....full of peace... the staff there treats you like your own family members.... the owner himself is a humble and very customer oriented.... i would like to give 100/100.
Rooms are spacious. People are warm and courteous and the food is yummy. However, I personally would not recommend to stay in the houseboat in winters with toddlers. The heating system is manual (logs of wood and kerosene) and it goes off in few hours and the room becomes extremely cold late night as the hours pass by. My kids became extremely cold and were crying and I had to call the houseboat guys at 3:00 am to start the heating. Hot water not available 24/7. They provide electric blankets on request and extra charge. The houseboat is anchored at one place near to the shore. So no sight-seeing in the houseboat. Good for one night experiences with elder kids and couples.
Awesome food and infrastructure. Thanks for helping make happiness .Its a fabulous experience. I am to much happy going and visiting. Food was awesome and boot creativity is awesome. I am very thankful to yakub ji make fabulous event in my life i love her.
Wonderful experience of houseboat and home cooked food by our host at New Golden Flower houseboat, Nigeen Lake, Srinagar.
Shikara ride for reaching houseboat is nice experience. Overall i find it worthy.
Home away from home. We stayed there for two nights. One of the best stay I ever experienced. Location of the boat is beautiful and nigeen lake is very clean as compared to any other boats on dull lake. Services provided are great. I am very much impressed with the hospitality.
