I visited Dandoo Palace \ Dal View Resort in mid-August. Stayed there for with my family for 7 days. Had a real good, relaxing time at the resort in middle of Dal lake. Owner- Nazir is a good man and is very helpful.

All the staff and cook are nice and served freshly prepared food.

I would recommend all to stay here for a relaxing time. :-)

We found the houseboat from the locator on google satellite and decided purely by location. Contact, one phone call, all set. The manager really manages all you need to get arranged. We ended up spending a whole week on the houseboat, Enjoying a lot of tea on the deck out front, great food, friendly staff and observing the every-day-life on Dal Lake. Taking a canoe out with not much experience is great fun! The Houseboat is beautifully carved and decorated all over with typical Kashmiri drapes, carpets and furniture. You feel like tucked into Kashmir.
We'll be back.

Room Tip: Although they have rooms in a hotel behind the houseboat, the rooms on the boat are much more stylis...

This is one of the best houseboats to stay in view of its excellent location. Owner of the houseboat Mr Naseer is a gem of a person and was more than helpful for anything that we required including our onward trip arrangements to Pahalgam. Service is commendable with Mr Basheer so great in understanding the needs of the guests. Food served was mouthwatering and was made as per your palate of taste.
Place was so wonderful that after Pahalgam, we cancelled our trip to Gulmarg and revisited the hotel and stayed their again on our last day. Experience in total is memorable and I would highly recommend this place. Staff is well behaved and are truly trained for making your visit memorable.
I wish the team at Royal Dandoo all the best and I shall definitely return there in future.

Room Tip: If you are going for 2 nights, try both house boat and resort. resort is located just at the back of...

Clean, safe environment. Amazing(though costly ) food. Good service. Kind staff.

Tips: Shikara cost for commute between house boat & city is not included. Its just 50 bucks per one way but good to know beforehand. Dinner buffet is 400 for non-veg and 200 for veg. Food tastes good but ensure you know that you are charged per person per meal. Prefer a room away from lake(unlike what you would otherwise think) to avoid smell of water, early morning shikara noises as well as too much sunlight. In either case, you can go to the common houseboat deck and relax whenever you want, irrespective of what room you chose.

We 4 friends went to Kashmir booking a package online. It was pleasant indeed. I liked the hotel stay more than houseboat. Hotel room was pleasant, nice and it was nice to stay. Homely food is served. Touseef bhaiyya was our travel guide. Very Co-operative, friendly and we'll behaved. Overall a nice experience.
