Great 175 foot 5 room houseboat with ac rooms large toilets and plush interiors. Omar and his collegue took great care always polite smiling friendly and keen to make you happy. Ask for anything. It arrives at your doorstep in a shikara boat for a royal private shopping experience in the all wood and carpet drawing room of the houseboat. Salaam bhai will ferry you in a private shikara twice through the lake complimentory and advises you all the time to keep your phone secure. Many have dropped phones in the lake and lost forever. He lifts all your luggage complimentory. Great man to chat with. Also protects you from those unwanted shikara shops who try to pester on the way. Courtesy of caretaker staff to provide crockery on dining table followed by free dishwashing for the food we carried with us won our hearts. Late night sitting on the deck was a cool serene delightful experience romancing with the reflections of colourful lights from the boulevard road garland across the lake. All in all full marks. Photos in the gallery posted by houseboat are endorsed for authenticity. Adding some from shikara in the lake.

We stayed here in the end of December 2018 for three nights through a Club Mahindra booking. Even as the temperatures outside hit record lows (-8 degrees, coldest Dember night in 30 years) and the lake froze, the rooms were snug and warm. The bukhari, electric blankets and air-con do their job just great. Saleem Bhai, the caretaker, is on his feet all through the day and night and he gave us a taste of what Kashmiri hospitality is all about. The food is tasty and simple. The boat has wifi and bathtubs too. Power cuts are frequent in Kashmir, though that isn't something the boat can be blamed for. Couldn't ask for more.

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.
