We were given the Happy Dawn to stay in from this list. To reach the houseboat the Group had arranged a Shikara to carry us along with our luggage to the houseboat and...

It was our last day of our seven days vacation in Kashmir. Staying at houseboat was a totally new experience for all of us. Honestly, we didn't expect much from the houseboat. But to our surprise, this house boat was big, well furnished, well equipped with things like TV, fridge, books, snacks. It also included an hour of the beautiful...

The front of the houseboats open up to a marvellous view of the mountains, beautiful landscapes all around, a perfect location for photography. Rooms were neat and clean and very much spacious & comfortable, with...

Its a group of 4 house boats on the dal lake. The happy dawn boat has the most spacious rooms. The rooms as well as the bathrooms are very clean and tidy. The food is also very good but variety is very less. In breakfast the choice is too limited and the dinner is a fixed menu veg meal. However...

House Boat provided complementary 15 minutes shikara ride from the 17 number boat jetty to reach the house boat. House boat is well maintained and rooms are styled ethnic. Bathrooms are spacious, though requires some modifications w.r.t bathing as bathing can be done only in the bathtub. There is no water exit in the surface of the bathroom, so if...
