Best Houseboat experience


We were advantageous abundant to break for 4 nights in the admirable Gurkha Houseboats during our break in Srinagar. The staff, Riyazh and Nazir, were acutely accommodating, accomplished and courteous. The apartment beautiful, the alignment delectable, and the area serene. The area in the Nageen Lake is absurd and offers calm and bashful ambience clashing the Dale Lake. If you are travelling to Srinagar and if you are searching for a abundant houseboat stay, amuse accede the Gurkha Houseboats you won't be disappointed. Umer, the administrator was acutely helpful. All about a abundant stay.

An average hotel


It was easily reachable. There was no delay at the time of check-in and check-out. Room and all were okay there. I took only dinner there. Varieties were not much there but it was okay. Staff people were okay there. Interior and exterior decoration wise, it was okay. Mountain view was visible from the room. I can recommend it to other travellers. I visited there two or three years back.

Well behaved staff and satisfied service


Hotel location was convenient and it was situated very near to the Nagin lake and Dale lake. I was able to reach the hotel comfortably without any problem. Interior and exterior look of the hotel was fantastic. I think so it was the best houseboats in Srinagar. Behavior of the staff was excellent. Services were fully satisfactory. Booking and front office services were prefect. Rooms were very spacious and well maintained. They provided extra bed in my room and it was free of cost. Lake view was visible from the room window. 24 hr hot water facility was available there. I had food inside the hotel and it was delicious. They provided food facility in the room as per our requirements. Nothing was available in activities. Parking facility was not available inside the hotel. Hotel arranged cab facility for sightseeing trip if we want. Srinagar place is lovely destination for outing. August month is not fantastic to travel the Srinagar. I had gone there with my family for relaxation.
