Stayed here with family for 4 nights through Club Mahindra. We had a very good experience. The entry is from Ghat no 17, very close to the road to Shankaracharya temple. One return trip in and out of the houseboat on a shikara was provided by them, which was very helpful. The facility is quite clean and well managed. The rooms are quite spacious (including the bathrooms). For heating, we were proivided with traditional "bukhari" and electric bed warmers - both very novel and comfortable. The service was extremely good and commendable (special thanks to Salim bhai). The food is prepared on pre-order, nothing jazzy, quite homely and tasty. If asked for, they can easily arrange shikara rides, on boat shopping, taxis, etc at a reasonable cost. They even provided wifi on board. The sit out area on the front deck and the living room were nicely done up and pleasant to spend time in.

Stayed in this houseboat in last week of May 2017. The decoration is excellent. They give one free too and fro ride from and to Dal lake shore. But extra rides cost Rs 100. They even charged Rs 300 to carry us with luggage to the boat in the evening when we arrived. The lake water is dirty and we were concerned that the utensils may be washed in this water. The food charge was Rs 350 per plate for lunch or dinner, breakfast Rs 200 per plate. Mineral water Rs 30 per liter bottle. The owner/manager gets 30% commission on every purchase you do by inviting the shops on shikaras that approach you. The photographers trick you by quoting Rs 100 for one photo but take many photos and tempt you to buy many photos. The customers end up buying more than one photo. There is nothing much to do on the house boat rather than siting at the small veranda and looking at the activities in the water of Dal lake. For any other thing you have to go to the lake shore by paying the shikara. Houseboats are good only for one night stay experience. Rest days it is advisable to stay in hotels near market. Food served at the Light house houseboat was not so great looking at so high charges. There are much better restaurants and cheaper food available at the Dal lake shore. One hour shikara ride costs Rs 200 (light house quotes Rs 500) that takes you to floating market where the shikara wala's main interest is to make you buy goods from these shops as he gets 30% commission. Saffron quoted for Rs 350 in floating market shops was available for Rs 150 at other shops on land. Even the paper machhe products were very expensive. Best place to do shopping is shops near Shalimar garden. Prices are very good there.

Nice stay at this boat house ..rooms are quite good though No AC in room as its hot in june...but things which i dont like are as they charge for drinking water also (30 rs per bottle) so better to bring your own water...and food they serve us very poor though the tea they served was very good. Overall not worth for more than 1 day stay.

Stayed in Light house boat for a day. It's an amazing experience. The rooms are rich with spacious beds and warm bed linen facility. The food was finger licking. People were very cooperative. The approach to the boat house by shikaras was unforgettable experience. But one should be careful while talking to shikara riders as they try to fool you with heavy charges. It's better to have tie up with boat house management itself so that they can arrange their own people for shikara ride. Overall an awesome experience.
