Very hospitable, generous team. Very spacious, beautifully maintained property. Immaculate, ON TIME service standards. Food variety may not be vast but make up with their homely touch. Though late to check-in, upgraded to "super deluxe" room. Keep up the good work !!!

Kashmir was where I wanted to spend my birthday this year and my wife chose this houseboat in Nigeen Lake - Srinagar, which is very rightly named as In The Crown". The moment we arrived on the other side of Nigeen Lake a smiling Shikarawala was waiting for us, he took our luggage and we started to row towards our houseboat. When we reached our houseboat, Bashir Bhai the Houseboat Manager greeted us with his infectious smile. We could now relate to the word - Kashmiriyat. We checked in and were served with a hot cup of Kahwa, and in a flash all our tiredness was gone. We stayed here for four nights, and during the evenings we used to sit in the lounge area facing the lake; calm waters, friendly shikarawalas rowing their shikaras greeting and smiling at you, birds chirping - we felt we were staying in a poetry lake - where words of love and peace stayed with us during all times. I for one, had never experienced such calmness in my heart. And I have asked for a better place than this to celebrate my birthday. In the four days that we stayed in In The Crown", we were treated with a kind of hospitality we had never experienced before; the food was home cooked and was cooked basis whatever we wanted to eat - whether it be Kashmiri Wazwan or Kebabs or a simple Matar Paneer. And by the taste of the food, one could say the food was cooked with so much love and affection. At any given time Bashir Bhai was always there to help you with questions like which places to visit, how much to pay to the Shikarawalas for a ride, the best Kashmiri dishes to try; to which he would say, "Aap jo bologe, hum bana denge. Jaisi apki marzi", whatever you like to eat, we will cook. Whatever you wish. One of the evenings Asif Bhai, the owner of the houseboat came to meet us, all there was, was affection and warmth in his greeting. Staying in In the Crown" was slowly becoming my best stay ever at any tourist location.

This is a gorgeous and maintained houseboat, traditional architecture with modern bathroom fittings. Dinner and breakfast were good and there is a free Shikara to and from the boat. Nigeen is a quiet lake, much less commercialized than the Dale Lake - it's perfect for a quiet getaway.

Houseboat is located on bank of nigeen Lake which is 10km away from Dale lake. Location is scenic and peaceful, very few Shikara sellers. Deluxe room is spacious but not much decorated. Basic amenities like TV is not available in the room. Common TV is available in drawing room of houseboat. Staff is polite. Owner of boat is ca retaking person. He personally called us and asked about arrival, we had late check in, still he arranged late night Shikara for us. Breakfast is awesome. He arrange on boat sell of Kashmiri items which are in higher side in terms of cost. Overall stay is value for money.
