I made my booking for this place on makemytrip mostly by following its reviews, though I was also suggested by another Srinagar hotel owner. There are few things that one must note for facts: (1) There is actually nothing called "Prestige Houseboats". We were taken to a houseboat called "Rover Houseboat" at which a guy called Adnan represented "Prestige Houseboats".... More

This is an excellent houseboat! We only spent a full day and one night but it was worth it! From the moment we were greeted by shikara wala to take us across to the houseboats, we knew we were in for a treat!. Very nice houseboat. Great masseuse! Good clean bedroom, comfortable beds and good food. Pleasant staff. No complaints... More
