The stay in the boat house was useless, you have so many better options in same lake, I was there on 26 jan 2018 winter Bad and poor service No hot water (only 3 hrs a day) No WiFi The owner does not live there. So the kid take cares of the house boat. But the kid is cute :)
Very average house boat in NigeenLake
Sandipan Nag , Nov 01, 2017
House boat is average. Location is good but very isolated. Better to stay Dal lake than Nigeen Lake. Food options are very limited and unwanted expensive. Rooms are average. Living room and dinning room are well decorated.
They did not refund money

Don't know about hotel. But they robbed me of my money. I booked the hotel from makemytrip. Com. Because of unrest situation in kashmir, I was forced to cancel kashmir plans. When contacted all other hotels repaid money. But they refused. Unfortunately, makemytrip gave me gift card. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone, as they have not honored a simple request of paying back money, when there was critical situation. I wonder how disappointing it would've been, if I had stayed there

It was a great experience!! The boat owner was kind and informative! You have to take a small ride in a boat to reach the houseboat which is good! You have a common Reading and dining room and individual bedroom with attached toilet! Overall it's a great experience and recommended!!
Angry type staff

It's was OK stay, outside view is awesome, lunch dinner you can have on board going outside sucks lot of time ... Furniture is bit old, needs cleaning of lake where local lives there is lot of mess ... Staff not very comparative .. Over all experience was OK kind

My visit to this place was during off season. The room and decor is good. Yakubji has been quite prompt and helpful. They helped me with anything and everything. Be it sightseeing. Ticketing. Leh tour ... Some improvement on room service would be required. Rest. Excellent place
Amazing experience and well organised
Husain Lakdawala , Jul 18, 2017

Good people. Nice Stay. Best

Very nice place. Good services. Gentleman Owner. Kashmir beautiful place. Yakub bhai very well support ed to manage the tour. His friend Jahurbhai the driver is also a very nice guy. Both means a good tour package for the travellers.

Due to continuous strike in Srinagar the only place where we could enjoy and feel safe was this house boat. Very pleasant surrounding, good food and very active care taker who looked after all our needs. And you must try kahuwa there ...
Loved the Kashmiri Hospitality
Vandana Gupta , Jun 02, 2017
I stayed here for 2 nights (27th-28th May'17) with my Husband & Sister. You will not find an owner like Yakubji. He truly believes in 'Atithi Devo Bhava'. As soon as we arrived, he welcomed us with the most flavorful 'Kahwa' mixed with homemade Gulkand. As we sat and sipped on the Kahwa, he took us through a journey of the last 100 years of his houseboat business. He had some wonderful stories to share & we enjoyed listening to them while enjoying a perfect and beautiful sunset at Nigeen Lake. The houseboat itself was very beautiful, clean & well maintained. The food served on the houseboat was also very good & made to order. Irfan, one of his staff members was very helpful & made our entire stay very comfortable. Towards the end of our trip there was a strike in the city but Mr. Yakub took great care of us & ensured that we stay safe. I would highly recommend a stay here as you will truly have an unforgettable experience.
Serene and refreshing!

Brilliant location and great value for money. The hosts are warm and will tend to your needs with attention. Nagin lake is small but is connected to Dal lake ... Enjoy the longest shikara ride from new golden flower to char chinar
Leena Kakkar , May 15, 2017
Nice stay at house boat its located at nigeen lake which is the best part as Dal lake is very crowed area there are 100 s of house boat at Dal lake so we prefer some relaxation and food was OK main ted well.
Great experience at beautiful houseboat
Dharm Vijayvargiya , Apr 18, 2017
Location is beautiful and houseboat is also neat and clean. Even nobody can find a single dust particle. Owner of houseboat is superb and excellent person. Nobody ask for tip. And finally I want to say beautiful houseboat with all amenities.
Lokesh Kumar , Apr 01, 2017
Extended for one day extra but hotel staff did not match the price we received from Makemytrip. Even it was communicated to us, and they surprised us at the end while checking out. Communicate to customer about prices before so that it will not surprise.
Danish , Aug 31, 2016
Peaceful Place, Away from crowd. Rooms are clean. Staff is very cooperative. It's value for money. Nearby road side. Easy to access Shikara Ride. I enjoyed a lot and got recharge in one night. Beautiful site seeing from balcony of House Boat. Superb!
Nice place to stay
Mohit Gurnani , Aug 01, 2016
Experience at New Golden Flower group was heavenly. Every thing was beautiful, let it be walls, sofa, curtains, bed, etc. The looks resembled ancient British theme. Chicken curry was very tasty. Security was good. Cleanliness was great. Thank you Mr. Ayub for offering great hospitality. I would love to visit this place again.
Beside Nigeen Lake but poor service
Suvendu Adhikary , Aug 01, 2016
Golden Flower HB is very poor service in food and drinking water. There are Nigeen Lake water used mainly. As shown internet no facilities like WiFi, road dropping etc. If you go to other place from here you're dropping to land "short tip" will be chargeable. Not in the middle of Nigeen Lake, it is the side of land.
Swarup Haldar , Aug 01, 2016
Food was OK, could have been better. Very little options in food and it was expensive and not value for money. Location is good but frequented by hawkers who dont even allow you to have your food in peace.
Isolated but serene
Amit Bhayana , Aug 01, 2016
The Houseboat is located in Nigeen Lake, it's little isolated but beautifully built, the owner likes to care about the visitors right from discussing travels plans, personal needs, food and any kind of help he can do. The stay was pleasant and we were happy and found the experience a totally different one as it was our first time. Dinner is a challenge for vegetarians but the owner tries his best to help one out of that too. Good to stay with family having large members.

Yakub Bhai thinks more about his guest than himself. This is one trip I did not have to think as to where and when to go, how much would it cost me for sight seeing, am I being taken for a ride, are the people trust able, etc etc. All the thinking was done by Yakub Bhai and we where well informed and well organized as and when needed. There was tension in Srinagar and a curfew when we landed, but we never felt insecure and never did we want to cut short our 5 day trip, because we where well taken care of and well guided on the tour. Food was homely and good, room and the boat was clean and tidy, we where short of winter ware that too was provided and made to feel comfortable. Yakub Bhais brother, Gulshan our room service person, Hussain the Shikra rider, Gooru the sight seeing car driver, were all curtious and very friendly they are never short of words nor company. I know more about Kashmir now than ever before.. Our heart is in Kashmir and with the people we spent our time with. Thank you all !!
I distinctly remember the excitement when I was planning for my holiday tour with my family in Kashmir !! But simultaneously I was also tense as I was planning to travel individually not in a group !! But then I remember that Make My Trip is there to help me plan my holiday and I just decided to book my House Boat booking first. So I read the recommendations of earlier customers of New Golden Flower House Boat and was surprised to note that almost everybody has written their best experience so I also booked the same and was expecting a good hospitality and I am satisfied that my experience was much better than what I had expected. I have various reasons to like this House Boat compared others are : 1)Excellent Interior 2)Beautiful Location of Nagin Lake 3)Peaceful and Calm outside unlike Dal Lake 4)Homely Treatment If we wants to have true holiday and wants to see real Jannat of Kashmir then must stay at House Boat New Golden Flower. Specially my wife, my daughter and my son.
It was Excellent & one of the best hospitality by the entire Hotel Staff. I will give 5/5 star rating. Starting from Owner Mr. Yaqoob Bhai, Ayub Bhai, Their beloved parents, Hotel crew staff specially Mr. Irfaan bor the best hospitality. It was gr8 stay.

We thought that due to media coverage it would be scary but on arrival the way owner of the New Golden House boat and their Hospitality team, they gave us a family atmosphere. No doubt Snow fall @ Gulmarg & Sonmarg at this point of time was above our expectations. The homely food prepared by owners family was great in taste & impressed our entire family with pleasant surprise. We have never come across with such wonderful moment in our life. I will advise all the tourist go & stay at Golden boat House boat with wonderful family moment & enjoy J&K adventures fearlessly. Yes off course Nigeen lake is 100% better than Dull lake as away from city crowed, pollution surrounded by mountains from all the sides.
We stayed 4 nights here. Rooms were nice , clean and beautifully decorated. Bathroom was spacious and well maintained.Service was excellent. WiFi / TV worked fully fine.Above all, the owner, is a very generous and humble man, who would love to help you out in every manner possible. He is the best guide to visit Kashmir.I like to highlight here that Nigeen lake is very quite, calm and empty, unlike Dal which has a lot of hosh-posh, crowd and activities going around it. It is bit far from the main city / Dal (7-8 kms) , so people looking for roaming around during the day would need to take auto every time.Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay here a lot and would definitely recommend everyone for this place..
Its an excellant houseboat located centrally with all facilities to enjoy besides other things viz food, hospitality and behaviour part of the members-excellant.
Our stay in the said houseboat with family members were above the expected level. The arrangements/facilities that were available with the place of stay was in line with the 3* New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat with good home made food, hygiene and delicious. The behavior of the staff members were also beyond expectation and very well taken care of all of us. The owner of the New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat had also arranged transport facilities at a very economically price. I wish the other travelers should also have the similar pattern of the same. In case of my next visit definitely I should opt for this facility and also refer to my family and other friends.
Very pleasant stay in the houseboat . Highly impressed with the hospitality . staff was very co operative . Room was reasonably clean and bathroom appeared hygienic . Although we didn't book New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat with meals , but when requested for it , it was respected and we were served with delicious food . We had our departure planned in early morning and we were surprised to have hot water on one request only . It was a two in one adventure as we also had a shikara ride . I strongly recommend to stay at houseboat in order to make your visit worth memorable . I must say thanks to the houseboat and also to make my trip .

Located on the lake Nilgeen, this House boat has a stunning view of the Lake Nilgen with the mountains behind. The Inside of this Boat House is beautiful. It has a nice beautiful living room when we enter with all the furniture required followed by the dining room. When you see this two rooms you can realize the beauty of this Boat. The room we got in the Boat was very clean and had all the facilities we expected for. The best part staying in this boat house is you come as a stranger and leave as a family. No one can ever forget the hospitality received at this place.
Good. But felt I paid more for shikara. Also local sightseeing was a waste of time and money. I could have done something better than that, some unknown non touristy places they would have been better, would have been nice if I was told of that as I didnt do my research well. After my return I read on tripadvisor that someone from abroad was shown around the non touristy places, wish that would have happened with me as well because the places I visited were not of my interest at all. My room was located where it was blocked entirely from the open view so that was bad.
A family atmosphere & high standard with foreign tourist as an accompany. best hospitality ever seen.
Off course we were on J& K tour but more than tour we felt family atmosphere there by best gesture in terms of hospitality, homely food, Independence of room, transport arranged by Owner of the house boat, and his entire houseboat team. An excellent team. I will advise each tourist if you want to enjoy natural trip of J&k. Do stay at New Golden houseboat club with best hospitality ever. I have already send SMS to my 150 friends who are planning their trips for srinagar regarding this houseboat.Thanks for wonderful family trip experience.
The best hospitality you can ever find in Srinagar
The houseboat provides all necessary things you need. The highlight of this place which makes it standing out from the rest of houseboats is the warm hospitality from the Dunoo family, plus the guy who takes care of the boat, Mr Yusuf, is the best!! He is very very kind and trying to accommodate all your request. He does his job with his heart, the owner, Mr Yaqub, is the real man who is very active and he has so much knowledges about Kashmir. Highly recommended to stay at this place.
Excellent place to have altogether new experience of House boat accommodation. Owner Yakoob bhai is very courteous guy and takes care very well about your requirement. We 2 families stayed there and had asked for pure vegetarian food and was amazed to know that very delicious vegetarian food was prepared by his mother and wife. They treat you like their own family member. Must visit House boat where you will have grate lake view, calm stay and fantastic hospitality.
We had been on the Houseboat on 6-Jan-15. Experience was good. There was a heater in the room all through the night which made the otherwise chilled atmosphere manageable. Hot water was provided in the morning. We were served Poha and tea in the morning. Taste was moderate. This houseboat is situated in the Nigin Lake and hence was peaceful away from the hustle and bustle, one may feel around the Dal Lake. Overall a good experience.
nice place to stay
The overall experience was nice. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
nice staff..especially yakoob bhai...
Interesting part was the houseboat and the lakeview.
Excellent House Boat,very well decked up.Food was excellent,Very nice ambience.The owner of the house boat Mr.Yakoob was very caring and polite.I strongly recommend everyone to stay at this houseboat.Neat and clean bathroom too. Dr.Sanjay Kumar,New Delhi
The Houseboat experience was really good. The house boat had wonderful rooms, neatly maintained and extremely well taken care of by the care-taker. The outside area - where the house boat was parked was not clean. The water was dirty and the surroundings were badly maintained.
The houseboat experience is good because of people owing these houseboat are really helpful and friendly. Jain food on request is available. Though, it is in Nigeen Lake so it is too far from market and other locations. If you prefer isolation and serenity, then it is perfect.
Overall ambiance was great in the New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat.
Best houseboat & best environment
I bet, you can't find a better houseboat than New Golden Flower houseboat. Best hospitality, best environment, best home cooked food, best location, what else a tourist can expect more, whole family is so kind and good. I'll really visit again, thank you Mr. Yaqoob and his family, we will miss you and we are very grateful to you and your family for taking care of us.
Very good overall.
Interesting part was the shikara ride in nigeen lake. We stayed in a hose boat called majestic palace and it had very beautiful park infront of it where we could enjoy during evening. The house boat was very clean. People there were very cooperative and provided wonderful service.
Excellent coordination by Makemytrip booking agent (Madam Shruti) and very well planned tour with excellent choice of Hotels.
Excellent stay with spacious rooms
We 3 families stayed in houseboat for one night. Reached in afternoon. Houseboat is located at ghat no2. Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff is very cooperative. Common TV in houseboat living room. Owner arranged shikara ride and Children enjoyed sightseen. Food quality was good.
Pros- Staff behaviour was very good Iftiyaar thank you dost, location was awesome. Food provided by Iftiyaar was very good. I recommend everyone to stay at least one day on houseboat. You really feel like jannat. Cons- It is very far from city.
Pradeep Kumar Girimaji
The experience is unparalleled and unforgettable. It is simply another home in Srinagar. Really no words can describe the feelings. Kudos and hats off to "MAKEMYTRIP.COM", an unseen mother understanding her childrens requirements to fullest satisfaction. Once again thanks a lot. All the best.
Nice houseboat but salty food
Utpal Kumar Sengupta
Nice houseboat however with same price could have got a better deal in Dal Lake. However people were friendly. Anyways enjoyed my time with my wife. Food for me and my wife was issue, in whole Srinagar trip as I believe people are use to eat with high salt food. However enjoyed Kawah.
A beautiful boat, away from the masses of Dal Lake. Very quiet and a completely enjoyable stay.
Enjoyed the Stay....Place is run by Good People
If you wish to stay away from the noise of Dal lake,this location is perfect for houseboat which is Nagin Lake.
2 compelling things to visit in this houseboat 1. First houseboat experience 2. Excellent service by yakub (owner of this houseboat) 3. Homely food Overall good experience. They have there own shikara ride.
Value for money, be careful of the valuables. There are no locks to the room. My frend lost her gold ring. I liked the place. Small shikara's come to ferry some local stuff. Bargain well, they reduce a bomb. They do fishing also, dont forget to experience it.
Excellent house boat and food was good.
