Houseboat New Golden Flower, Srinagar
Nagin Lake, Nagin Bagh, Srinagar
The Golden Flower Houseboats (about 3 of them) situated at the quaint Nageen Lake offer a perfect solution of solitude and peace away from the hustle-bustle of Dal Lake. There are a lot of rumors and myths about the houseboats in Kashmir and Golden Flower Houseboat breaks all of them with grace and panache. The houseboat doesn't stink, food isn't bad, owners and other guests are not at all intrusive, water isn't unsafe and service isn't unprofessional. Golden Flower was the best experience we could get in Srinagar. Absolutely stunning location, most courteous and pleasant service, perfect privacy and non-intrusive behaviour from the staff and other guests. Most importantly the best breakfast and dinner we had anywhere in the whole of Kashmir. In fact, I would rate the quality and deliciousness of food many notches above the popular Mughal Darbar and Shamiyana at Srinagar. The owner of the Golden Flower is an iconic figure himself in the Kashmir travels and tours circuit. Meet him (in case he is not away on one of his trekking tours) and you will be charmed by his pleasant demeanor. The location i.e. Nageen Lake is breathtaking and offers great views every hour, serene during the mornings and absolutely romantic during the evenings/ nights. With good satellite TV connection, clean warm water, spic and span rooms. The great food Golden Flower Houseboat can be perfect getaway for at least a couple of nights while in Srinagar/ Kashmir. Trust me you won't feel bored even for a moment in this perfect abode. Be here and take the local Shikaras in the Nageen lake, enjoy the food and get pampered in well-deserved solitude and break. Though just separated by a bridge from the Dal Lake. It seems miles and miles away from the typically touristy and noisy Dal Lake. Do visit the Golden Flower.
We stayed as a family of 4 adults for 1 night at Houseboat New Golden Flower and we were totally floored by the hospitality, comfort and good food. Gauhar was always there to assist when needed, and the food was far excellent even better than places we ate later in Kashmir. We couldn't believe that we were actually being serviced so diligently and carefully and the privacy, ambiance, cleanliness, hot water availability, clean bedsheets & rooms was all present. We stayed in same HB, and enjoyed the stay a lot. Whenever we visit again, we are staying totally here again at Nageen Lake. Unmatched hospitality and overall a pleasure filled stay. Room Tip: All rooms have comfy settings, though their honeymoon suite is the biggest.
The staff were very helpful and they were quick to attend our request. The hotel was conveniently located. The room given to me was spacious, clean and neat. The hot and cold water facility was provided. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food was served at the hotel. The quality of the food was good. The activities were not arranged at the hotel.
