we did not get what we were offered and the houseboat booking was not there so we return back on 20th of may instead 23rd, i am going to sue travelguru for this as our hotel booking was not there and we are going to take a legal action against this so better be prepare for this.
Warm Welcome: After a pleasant stay at pahalgam, i was eager to see the summer capital of J&K, Srinagar. As i entered the town i did not see any beauty that i had left behind in pahalgam. I was really disappointed and just thought what lies ahead for me. The Peacock resort of Houseboats that i had booked had address of Nagin/Nigeen lake. Upon my search i landed in small lane with board of gevernment water sports, Nigeen lake. the path to my destination was through famous Shikara and my moment of joy was regained after few minutes of shikara ride. I was back in beauty of nature awaiting WATS next? The warm welcome by hotel manager Bashir will be surely my memories in future. He made sure he guided me till my room and i was comfortable. the housebout has all the comfort and beauty and cleanliness that i desired and paid for :-) Guidance:- After a cup of fantastic welcome tea with some pakoras i asked for guidance to travel the city. his quick reply was " You always travelk by road and vehicles, but since you are in kashmir enjoy the beauty by shikara rides by travelling to various points and floating market of Dal lake. and i do not regret accepting his advice as those 8 hours of shikara ride were most pleasant remembrance. Food n Service: The expectations were high and the poor food and service took away al the fun during dinner. Regular food with no local dishes. Even the service was slow and non attentive. Overall: I would rate it 6 on scale of 10. Not to blame the room, cleanliness but all blame to food and service.
There are at least five Peacock Houseboats owned by the same person on the Nigeen Lake in Srinagar. We stayed in one of them. These houseboats are located in a serene environment where you can have a good view of the hills and rainbows after a rain. Having said that, we must report some of the major problems which we faced in this houseboat. There was no TV service due to poor electricity supply. On the first day, we had mostly power cuts, and low voltage. The next day, the voltage was so low that we could not charge our mobile phones. There was a problem of getting hot water also. Finally, on the third day, after a lot of unpleasant exchanges, electricity was restored. There was no Wi-fi or internet service as claimed on the website of these houseboats. The most unpleasant thing happened on the final day when the owner of the houseboat asked us to leave at 9:30 AM in the morning because another party would come. We do not recommend this houseboat to anybody.
We were expecting value for money but disappointed as the host not even bothered to discuss with us and fix the petty problems.During our stay the only T.V.of the houseboat could not be started.Food quality was also not up to the mark and we have to skip the meals served by them.I personally would not recommend this houseboat to anybody who wants to enjoy his holiday.I have seen many good reviews of the houseboat prior to booking but the fact is very much frustrating.I like to advice those who want to book the houseboat to think many times before booking a houseboat at nigeen lake as the lake is
It was a nice experience to stay in the houseboat. But there is scope for improvement in the quality of room. Size of deluxe double room is no different from the deluxe room.Two beds placed in that room were different drastically, making it unpleasant to the eye the moment you enter the room. Bed sheets were shabby.

Location of the houseboat is suitable to some and not suitable to some. Very remote location. Silent location. The representative is OK. They don't provide room heating facility in day. U have to pay for it. Food is average. Can control outside shop vendors to boat house.
Peacock house boats located in Nageen lake are peaceful and away from the hustle of dal lake. The price of stay is also reasonable and the rooms are beautifully decorated. We stayed for 3?days and absolutely loved the place. The vendors selling stuff on boats can be annoying. Never buy from them or the dal lake. You can be sure to get them for much cheaper rates elsewhere eg the govt operated shops but not on the lake.
Good houseboat. Great view. Polite and helpful staff. Great food. Neat washrooms. We enjoyed the shikara ride upto the houseboat. No other way to make it there. So enjoy your raise on the lake while you are there.
As houseboat is located in Nigeen lake(extension of Dal lake), so it has advantages than Dal w.r.t to scenery, calmness, cleanliness.The rooms are good with two rooms per boat. They were operating two boats .The batroom is claen with hot water facility but dont expect extra toiletries.Each house boat consists of hall with TV,dining hall and two rooms(attached bathroom). Helping staff are always available and friendly.They serve Kewa(local kind Tea) also and food is good.Wifi signal is good and accesible from room also .We went during the july turmoil in Srinagar but had peaceful stay.They also shikara ride (500 per hour) to roam around Dal Lake which may take 4 hours.Try Kashmiri roti with namkeen chai At first we reached Nigeen Club ghat by road(abt 22 KM from Airport in cab(Rs 900)).Then we called them to send us shikara to the ghat and transport us to houseboat about 15 min sail.
Stayed here personally in 2010. And as I run a small travel company, I have been sending clients to this place and all have always given a great feedback. The food is amazing. You can experience the Kashmiri hospitality at its best here. The owners are always available if you need anything. Prompt communication regarding booking and any queries. Overall, highly recommended.
