We got this cottage's reference through a friend and were not really sure what to expect. However it turned out to be pretty good. The rooms are pretty clean, home like and in good condition. Staff was also very helpful. They cooked nice meals and helped find taxis/cabs/auto for our day trips. Its also very close to market/ATM. There was no board indicating the cottage name but it was temporarily and because of some municipal order. There was pile of garbage near the gate which gave wrong initial impression but the main lawn was very well maintained. The lawn next to our cottage could have been a bit better maintained. But not bad and in fact very cozy for morning/evening snacks (had jhoola). The property was a bit away from Dal Lake area though. Overall, it was nice homely stay for the price.
