Ambience of the hotel was good


I reached the hotel easily. Hotel was located little bit far from the sea beach. Interior and exterior look of the hotel was fine. Ambience of the hotel was good. Staff behaviour was nice. Rooms were okay. Any scenic view was not available from the room window. They provided food facility as per our requirements. Quality of the food was fine. There was no delay in check in and check out facility. They did not provide any activity in the hotel. I had gone there by own car with my family in 2010. Money wise, overall my destination in Mandarmani was okay. I can recommend this hotel for tourists. There should be need to organize the activities in the evening time.

The hotel staff were good and cooperative


There was no difficulty to find hotel location. The room provided was very neat, clean and maintained but there was no internet facility in hotel like WiFi. The food served in hotel was pure veg. There was no indoor or outdoor activity in the hotel for refreshment. I will recommend it to other travellers. I had a smooth check-in and check-out.

Average houseboat with equipped room


Houseboat was very good and I reached without any problem there. Staff service was very nice and acceptable. Room was well maintained and spacious. Room was equipped with TV, pillow, bed, blanket, etc. Food was available there but I did not take food inside the houseboat. I had food road side. Houseboat was average. Billing process was on time. I have been recommended this property for my concern. Srinagar destination is peaceful place for travelers.

Well managed houseboat with good amenities


The location of the houseboat is well approachable with complimentary Shikara service. The houseboat is well managed in respect of decor and amenities, the ca retaking staff is very cooperative and cared for the customers requirements. Due to heavy snowfall and power failure the staff provided with the additional heating arrangements which worked well to meet the freezing temperature outside. The breakfast is nicely prepared and served.
