Houseboat - A memorable experience

Posted 22 Nov, 2015

A houseboat is not for every one, it's for the kind who likes to try and get different experiences. If you are looking for the luxury and comfort of a star hotel than house boat is not for you. You better stay in the usual hotels. Kashmir is one of the handful places in India which offers an option to stay in a house boat and I truly wanted to experience it. And also wanted my kids to experience something unique. I am sure they will cherish this lifelong. Based on my observations, all houseboats are almost the same. The difference is in how well they are maintained and how good is the in-house service. And food. Lake Victoria stands out, because it is well kept, the rooms are also very neat and clean. The boat manager, Hamid bhai is a gem of a person, very courteous and makes you feel at home. The king size dining table makes you feel royal. The food is hygienic and healthy and served hot. The taste was so good that I asked my wife to get the recipe from the chef. I would strongly advise to take the package with breakfast and dinner, because its saves a lot of time and is also cost effective. I stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed my time closure to the nature, with scenic view of Shikara's moving along in the beautiful Dal Lake.

Excellent hotel with attractive interiors

Posted 20 Apr, 2017

I went to the hotel in the month of March and it was a holiday trip with family members. The destination of the hotel was very good and house boat and Shankaracharya Temple. The best way to reach the hotel was by car. The appearance of the hotel was attractive especially the interiors. Front office and reception was good especially the gallery point and decoration. I had done booking through online. Rooms were warm, interiors were very attractive and basic amenities were available. Services were provided on time. The food was tasty and delicious especially the roti and sabji. Complimentary breakfast was provided by the hotel. I would like to suggest the hotel management to provide the clear information of the sightseeing points, the charges they charge etc to the customer since we were not aware the local people charge high for Shikaras and for other activities. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers with the same suggestion to be aware of the other expenses. The overall experience in the hotel stay was good.
