After staying for a couple of days in Srinigar and visiting Dal lake, one realises how lucky we were to select Houseboat in Nigeen Lake and among them shortlisted this one. The view this boat provides in the morning is simply Fantastic. Sunrise from behind the mountains, catching the glimpse from the river was something special. Recommend all to stay in Nigeen lake and in this Houseboat. Food was OK types, dont expect much specially for veg people.

The hospitality from the staff was very good and welcoming. Feel like at home. Everyone who attended to us was very friendly. Food was good, we got what we preferred. Rooms and the bathroom was very clean. The owner attended to us everyday. Overall i would say it was an awesome place to relay and stay.

Had an awesome time at the Houseboat.. at Niggen lake will always recommend stay at the Houseboat to tourists..the view early morning is just Awesome.. shikara people come to sell things like kashmiri clothes bags Jwellery and saffron ..bought some clothes with lots of bargaining..Jus awesome experience at the Houseboat.. highly recommended

The property is not well maintained, we got a room with no view,they had one person to attend to 4 families. The breakfast comprised of watery upma and un toasted bread. There were constant power outages too. Food was terrible. It was a bad start to our vacation. Pls avoid this property if you are looking for a neat place with good food!!

I traveled to Kashmir last December with my mother and sister. We had an amazing stay at Wangnoo Houseboat, experienced the winter in Kashmir. Rooms are furnished with handcrafted walnut wood furniture, elegant window curtain and carpet. They have traditional heating system in the room- similar to fireplace where you have to put wood to keep the room warm. Bathroom has modern fittings with electric heating. They'd turn on heating as and when needed. In the night they also provided hot water bag to sleep on. Breakfast was included, and in house restaurant also served mouthwatering food. Although, if you are on budget, eating outside would be a cheaper option. The owner was very helpful to sort things out for us. It is actually their family business, and they know how to make a guest's travel easy. Owner son, Mr. Arshid helped us with buying air tickets, renting car, shopping and what not. I must mention the caretaker Dien bhai, who really took care of us. Our driver Sikandar Dastaan was a dependable and a very good one. In Sonamarg, he took care of mother when my sister and I went up on the mountain. I want to stay again at Wangnoo Houseboat in summer, and would definitely recommend them to others.

I and my family had an awsome stay at Wangnoo Houseboat. It was clean and confortable. Situated in a loction with a beautiful scenary of Nigeen Lake and the view of snow mountain. The owner Mr. Mohamed attended to us personaly everyday to ask how was the day went. He treated us like his own family. Our dinner and breakfast were served on time. Food espeacialy dinner was superb. Overall it was an amazing stay with lovely experience

Very luxurious.. owners are excellent people and care takers are the best.. willing to help you with everything and are able to take care of all you comfort requirements. Made sure rooms were appropriately and timely warmed up so that we could sleep properly. Some of us were vegeterians so the food at the boat took care of that requirement.. lovely food being served.. This was my 2nd time at the houseboats and I will be back soon. Must stay at these houseboats to enjoy the best experience..

Wow, it was such an amazing holidays I had lastly. It was really awesome. Me and my cousins visited Srinagar, Kashmir on 17th Nov to 20th Nov 2017 and stayed on this houseboat where we had such a wonderful time and the most delighted welcome. The owner Mr. Habib and all the staffs were so nice to us and so friendly. Especially Mr. Hilal, the guide. He was such a nice person. The accommodation was superb. Overall we enjoyed our stay there so much that we feel at home even we were faraway. I am very thankful to Wangnoo Sheraton Group of Houseboats (Srinagar, Kashmir).

The houseboat we stayed in was clean and the interior decor is very nice. Nigeen lake is quiet and peaceful as compared to Dal Lake but a bit of a distance from the shopping area. Recommended to stay here if you want a break & peace of mind. The lake gives you a good view of mirroring image for photography effects and easily can view the sunrise & sunset from the upper deck. They have a beautiful garden behind the houseboat. As for the meals, we did not get to taste any lamb during our stay & breakfast time we have same basic spread of toasts with omelette for 3 consecutive days with plain rice porridge. Overall the place is good to relax. We had 2 nights the place to ourselves and the 3rd nite we have 3 ladies fromKota Bhar, Malaysia joining us and fortunately we clicked well and the whole place looks like we are having a family holiday. May come back again one day but maybe at a different season.

It was my first experience in a house boat, I enjoyed it. Lovely hospitality, nice people, very humble. Given a chance would like to visit again. It was an excellent service provided by Mr. Salim. The houseboat is neat and clean. Dont entertain the vendors and photographers they just sit like crows on the head.
