The location for the hotel was good as it was near the road so you need not to pay for shikara/ boat every time you go for or come back from outing. Also it was at very peaceful location. The staff was helpful except one guy who was managing food. He became rude when we got late by 15 minute for breakfast. On the negative side, the rooms were not up to the expectations and certainly not worth the price paid for that. Bedsheets and towels were not very clean. One good point was the home like food. Overall 2 iut of 5 points.

Our family of five visited Srinagar just before Xmas. Shaft meet us at the airport and took us to the boat, The weather was extremely cold, as there had been no snow yet, but the staff made every effort to keep us warm and comfortable with wood burning stoves. Special mention must be made of Shafts help when we were 'scammed' into buying carpets that were claimed to be handmade, but were not! Shaft went back with us to the shop where we returned the carpets and took us to a reputable dealer. Shaft also helped arrange several outings which were lovely. We ate on the boat - the cook was good, and very kindly baked us a beautiful cake on Christmas day. Although there was a strong police presence in Kashmir (which can be a bit intimidating for foreigners) we never felt personally threatened, We would love to visit again one day - perhaps in the summer :) WARNING - We visited Pahalgram and were persuaded by some locals to take a horse ride up the mountain. A few minutes into the ride my daughter noticed that her horse was bleeding caused by chaffing under the saddle. We immediately got off the horses and walked back. Please take great care when hiring horses - its seems to us that they are not treated well.
We got a wonderful experience in Kashmir. The stuffs were so nice and friendly.They organised the trip for us very well. I probably recommend to others tourist who wants to get an amazing time here. " The Shelter houseboats" is the best choice for you.

My friend and I stayed at The Shelter Group of Houseboats for 3 nights and our whole experience was amazing. The staff was so nice, helpful and friendly, especially Aijaz. He organized the wonderful trip for us. The room was really nice, clean and quiet. It's located near market and places to walk around. Food was good. We would stay again in this houseboats. Highly recommended!
