What's Good: The Architecture q
What needs to improve : The Boat is at Nigan Lake which is bit far from heart of city. But the place is very peaceful.
Reason For Rating : Stayed at New Golden Flower House Boat for one night. It was wonderful experience. The behavior of owner is very friendly. The rooms are wonderful. I have stayed with my wife, 2yr old son, mother & mother in law. I strongly recommend everyone to stay there. 3600/- for two DBR for two days is value for money.

What's Good: Horrible experience, very poor hospitality and very poor food. They did not provide hot water in bathroom despite our repeated requests, the owners are very rude and they seem very sympathetic to the terrorists and against the Indian Government. They people will just spoil your trip, worst stay of my life. My son got sick after eating their breakfast and we had to change our plan. We will never stay in any houseboat again. When we asked about the breakfast, they very rudely said that we can choose one option out of aloo paratha or poha, We requested both they first rudely said no, you can only take one option. But we were two people and we insisted and they agreed. In the morning we were served only aloo paratha, which was prepared hours before and the worst cooked food. They forgot the poha, later served the poha, which was also of very poor quality. Their faces scare you, their faces look like you are not welcome. On return, they even did not pick up my luggage and I had to put it myself in my car. These people should be banned by J&K Tourism, we will complain to them about this.

What's Good: Excellent Houseboat on cool Nigin lake. The owner Md. Yaqub, attending staff Md. Bashir take every step and extend all possible help to ensure that the guests return home fully satisfied about Kashmiri hospitality. Travelling in cars driven by Md. Zhoor, narrating history, social issues, relevance of the places of interest is a separate experience. All these people shield the guests from being cheated by dishonest traders and help to prune unnecessary expenditure. Staying on Nigin houseboat is a better experience than very congested Dal lake. This houseboat is neat & clean, perfectly safe, commands the great view of the lake and affordable. Wi-fi facility with high speed internet is available in the rooms.

I am Digvajay from Pune and one month ago me and my family members decided to visit Kashmir and after make searching i came across New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat. I read all the reviews and on decided to stay in the same Boat house at Nigeen lake. I got phone number of Yakub Bhai and spoken with him and share our plans with him. After one hour he mail me and send me a detailed program for 5 nights in Kashmir. He organised 2 Nights stay at his Houseboat, 1 Night at Gulmarg, 1 Night at Pahalgam and 1 Night at Srinagar in Hotel. He also organise Tempo for us for entire programe. We really enjoyed our Kashmir Trip and we all are thankful to Yakub Bhai, His brother Ayub Bhai and his Son Mujtaba. The family is great and take nice care of their guests. Yakub Bhai served us Kashmiri Kehwa on arrival at his houseboat. At Dinner we had a Kashmiri Pulao with dry fruits. Next day he served us Kashmiri Wazwan ( Kebaad and Rista) Wow. On breakfast you have choice: Allu Paratha/ Breat Omlet/Upma/Puha ( One from these) and Tea or coffee and then Butter toast or Jam toast. We really enjoyed our stat at New Golden FlowerHeritage Houseboat and for Sure i will recommend my all friends and relatives to stay once in New Golden Flower. For people who are interesting to visit Kashmir simple call Yakub Bhai on his business cell number +91-7006189188 and for shure your worriesare gone he can manage everything for you like Houseboat+Hotels+Transportation.

I booked the houseboat over 15 days in advance for the day with breakfast and dinner facility via Goibibo (16th June 2019). We got fresh as the dinner was apparently being prepared in the kitchen. The dinner included one non-veg curry and one daal with sticky rice and some hot chappatis kept over cold and undercooked raw ones, probably cooked in the morning. After serving the dinner everyone on the boat disappeared with no one to attend us or anything to ask for. After waiting for 10 minutes and blankly looking everywhere we took the bowl ourselves from the kitchen. After over one hour the cook came and told us they had prepared one more sabzi which they FORGOT to serve us. Okay forgiven and forgotten. Following morning, it took over an hour to get them to serve tea. Now the breakfast also took half an hour extra with only aloo parathas and tea and one omelette and bread. There was not one thing extra on the table. While the omelette and the bread sufficed for me, the plain aloo parantha without any usual accompaniments was rather unacceptable for my parents. We again had to search for someone as they had disappeared again. When asked for simple things like either curd or pickle or butter, they went on a treasure hunting spree outside, during which time our breakfast was finished. After that a lady, we never saw before comes and tells us they are out of pickle just today. For the sabzi part, she said they have one potato and carrot sabzi (which was the last night's forgotten accompaniment and which later we got to know was cooked in the afternoon a day before). So finally they served us one bowl shoddily filled with butter. Now, 1. we did not pay a surprise visit to them that they suddenly ran out of curd and other minimal things, 2. The food cooked in the afternoon was served to us at night, which they were willing to serve us the following morning as well, 3. I have not even described the situation of the room with dirty bedsheets and old blankets here.

i stayed on this beautiful original houseboat for 3 nights and it was all perfect. the food was excellent, the service very friendly and accurate and the information on kashmir given by the owner were very interesting. the houseboat is situated in nageen lake which is a very nice and calm place to stay. we could relax perfectly and recommend this place to any tourist who is looking for a place to find peace of mind.

Not expect the good food and services in the houseboat, every thing will be against the hospitality offered by normal hotels. 2 stars given on the welcome offered by them but do not expect much.As for every need it will take around 30min to 1 hour to reach you.
