Gurkha Houseboats is a hidden surprise in Srinagar. The houseboats are beautifully designed and impeccably kept. They are located in Nageen Lake which is a more peaceful part of Dal lake and away from the chaos and clutter. They have designed the place in Kashmiri style with beautiful local artefacts, carpets, rugs, curtains, cutlery. The common area is luxurious, warm and welcoming and makes one feel at home. The room was comfortable and warm. Considering it was in a houseboat, the room was spacious enough for an extra bed for our child, had a separate dressing area and a neat and clean bathroom with a bath tub as well. What floored us the most was the hospitality shown by the staff, their attention to every detail and the sensitivity towards our young children. They figured out in a day what our fussy children like to eat and got the same ready proactively for the next meal. This gesture of theirs will remain etched in our minds. Also worthy of mention is the finger licking food prepared by them for every meal. Though the menu is limited, one doesn't miss a wide choice because they make every meal really special. Gurkha Houseboats certainly gives you THE 5 star experience in a houseboat in every way - location, design, interiors, food and above all the service. Highly recommended.

I would like to thank the owner, manager and housekeeper for taking such great care of us when we stayed at their houseboat. Even though its classic style but all are very clean. Bathroom was modern and spacious, clean and with hot water 24/7. Food was the best we've had in Srinagar so I don't get why other reviewers complained that it was cold. It was served hot, so delicious with their special chicken dish truly finger-licking good. Enough to serve an army! They checked many times to be sure we had all we needed and felt comfort. The place was heated so nicely by wood in living room all the time in November chill weather and in bedroom with oil heater. Plus thoughtfully hot water plastic bags in our bed. Fruits and cake, cookies were served beautifully. Not to forget to mention the famous Kashmiri tea - kahwa to be served many times, which was always deeply appreciated. They are building the most luxurious houseboat of all in Srinagar and I saw how beautiful the artwork is being done. No doubt this is the most Luxurious Houseboat group in Srinagar with excellent service and care. I hope the situation will get better soonest because Srinagar needs their tourism back. It was a great stay! It felt so tranquil, fresh air and beautiful landscape. You are indulged here, for real. Personal service at its best. You should visit their gallery with finest Kashmiri famous products. Remember to ask for discount :-) Quality is great! Can compare to the expensive, beautiful JK Gov. Art Emporium quality at better price. We shopped everywhere from up to down to we know the price vs quality. Highly recommended.

Beautiful stay on a Srinagar Lake Beautiful stay on a Srinagar Lake

We stayed on a houseboat for 2 nights. It was a very different experience. The houseboat is on the other side of the lake so were taken there on a shikara. The houseboat was very neat and done up in intricate Kashmiri design. The houseboat had a family room, a dining area, a deck for sitting as well as 2 rooms. The houseboat attendant was very helpful. The breakfast was pretty basic and the dinner quality could also have been better but all in all a great experience.

My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights and those were some of the best 5 nights we spent in any hotel. A lovely houseboat that is clean and comfortable. We stayed in boat number 5. As it is, Nigeen lake is a very quiet place without any of the tourist hustle bustle that Dal lake witnesses. We were made to feel completely at home by the manager Shawkat. And a few words must be said of Erfan and Shareef, the attendants. They were ever smiling and ever obliging, pandering us with every detail of comfort, be it kawah at odd hours to our requests for special meals (non spicy). The cherry on the cake was the chicken biryani that the staff fed us on the day of Eid and did not charge us for it. Highly recommended place for people who are seeking peace and quiet.

Great Stay Great Stay

We have been in the Houseboat for one day. The Houseboat is in the Nageen lake. If you want peace and tranquility,this is the place. The food was excellent. You can have shikara ride. Only problem is the salesman through the shikara may pester you. We should have spent more time there. You should go with friends and family.

Demo Trip We stayed at their Suite, which was the best but I think all rooms are bigger than the average room size in houseboats.

by Laperle on November 22, 2016

Demo Trip Certain houseboats have 2 rooms and others have 3 rooms. In case you are booking 1 room, choose the smaller houseboat which has 2 rooms.
