    Best Hospitality, EVER!”

    We had the best hospitality staying here. Yaakub and his family were very accomodating. They helped to warm up our room and made sure we were comfortable during our stay. He can arrange tours for you at a very reasonable price and usually one of his family members will come along to make sure you're not being ripped off. The food served was simply delicious and made the place felt like home. Overall, an excellent stay. Highly recommended! Will come back again, for sure!

    Good Place & Warm Hospitality ”

    This is the second time I stayed in this Houseboat in early December 2016. And today I came with group (4 people). Why I stay here again. Because I love the place in Negen Lake. Quiet place and beautiful scenery. You really can relax and enjoy the surrounding. Very awesome! And the most important is the owner, Mr. Yakub is very kind person. He helped me a lot during my 4-days tour in Kashmir (Srinagar, Sonamarg, Gulmarg) which made our tour running smooth and my group felt so amaze with all these things. Rooms are spacious and clean. They provided heather to make the room warm during night so we could sleep well. The owner also invited us to celebrate his son's birthday with his entire family. It was very good experience for us to get along with his nice family. Highly recommended to stay in this houseboat.

    Calm, Serene and Beautiful”

    Set in the beautiful Nageen lake, this houseboat is a perfect place to stay if you are looking for calmness and quite away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Scenic view of the Nageen lake from the houseboat add to the ambiance. Also, the hospitality and warmness of the owner, Yakub bhai is just amazing. A great guy and it was really great spending the evenings chatting around with him... All in all a great place to stay when in Srinagar...... PS: If you are looking for a taxi to visit places in and around Srinagar, do ask for Zahoor bhai.. A very well spoken and knowledgeable guy

    Though everyone is aware about the current situation in Kashmir but the moment we entered their Houseboat we felt as good as we have again come back home. Their entire staff to so well care of us that inspite of restrictions in the city all our requirements well fulfilled at its best. The rooms are well neat & clean with an amazing view of the snow capped mountains. The location of the houseboat itself deserves the best location amongst any of the other houseboats in Srinagar. Thank you team & Yakub bhai for all the comfort that you have given us during our visit at the New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat.

    I visited Srinagar From July 2 to 6th, 2016 with my family and stayed in the houseboat for entire period. It was a homely memorable stay. Yakub Bhai takes special care of his guests on individual basis. The home made food is irresistible. Even the our itenary planning was done by Yakub Bhai. If you want a vacation with calm, homely, great food and great people with beautiful Kashmir stay only here. A trip to cherish life long. Thank you Yakub Bhai.

    Feel Like Paradise on this Houseboat”

    No doubt kashmir is called paradise on earthis and once you will stay in New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat you will feel like Paradise in Paradise. The Owner of this boat is very kind and helpful and is always ready to assist his guests. Myself and my friends were very lucky that we stayed in this Houseboat as recently this family have completed 100 years in Houseboat Hospitality business. As I was told by Mr. Yakub that his great grandfather has started the houseboat business in 1916 and he is the forth generation running this business. The houseboat New golden flower is facing towards open lake and one can see hole scene of Nigeen lake. Since there are houseboatsome moored on East and west sides of the lake but this houseboat has a unique location and a guest can enjoy both sun rise and sunset. The rooms are very clean and food is tasty especially the roast chicken and potato... Do not forget to ask Kashmiri tea kahwa. Finally words are not enough... come and feel yourself too what we have experienced.

    The Best Houseboat with Excellent Location”

    This houseboat is located in Nigeen lake which is more beautiful and quite than Dal lake. Actually we tried to book this houseboat on 7th May 2016 but we came to know that it is already full because the family had completed 100 years in Houseboat business. Finally we changed the plan and decided to stay in June 2016. Once we came out from Airport we were greeted by Mr. Yakub Dunoo who arranged transport for us. It took us one hour to reach houseboat as the airport road was under construcation. Wow... when we came inside the boat it was amazing. We were offered a Kashmiri green tea ( Kahwa) with special herbs which refresh our mind. Mr. Yakub arranged our tour and we enjoyed our sightseeing to Sonamarg, Gulmarg, Pahallam and ofcourse to Mughal Gardens and old part of Srinagar city. I have no words how to explain the hospitality of this family. The food is home made and fresh cooked on the demand of guest. The plus point of this location is that the Houseboat is in the middle of lake and one can have opportunity to see sun rise and sunset from the deck of the houseboat. Wood touch.... Whenever you need any information regarding anything better speak with Mr. Yakub. I recommend this houseboat to everyone who like to stay in Houseboat in Nigeen lake.

    'Homeboat' in a houseboat. ”

    Ambience, cleanliness and services

    Mr Yaqoob's New Golden flower should more aptly be called a 'homeboat' than a house boat. The Dock has a scenic calm view of the Nageen, the staff is ever alert and the home cooked food makes the cherry on the cake. Combined with it is the hospitality of the owner, he's ever ready to help u, give tips about the places to see, things to do and stuff to buy. My two day stay was the first ever on a houseboat and it was made so comfortable and enjoyable that I would like to come back again for the same. I wanna thank him and his family for being such a courteous host and all the best for the future.

    The houseboat; the location; and the family who own the houseboat

    Excellent! This beautiful, family-owned houseboat is situated in tranquil, peaceful Nageen Lake which adjoins Dal Lake which is somewhat overcrowded. The Dunoo family with Yakob at the helm, ensure that your every need is met. They even provided a canoe for my son's exclusive use, at no extra charge. Mrs Dunoo cooks delicious Kasmiri meals. Because we were staying for six days, Yakob gave us very generous discounts on all meals. Our 'houseman', Bashir, cared for me like a son, even buying freshly-made macaroons for my morning tea! The houseboat itself, is gorgeous, almost like a movie set. I have travelled for forty years and visited thirty countries - but The New Golden Flower is something quite special.

    Extremely Hospitable Staff !! Lovely Location & Comfortable Stay....

    I stayed for 3 nights at the Golden Flower Houseboat, and have to say that it was a pleasant experience. We arrived late night/early morning i.e 12AM and 1AM, and was worried about finding the houseboat and checking-in. However, the Golden Glower houseboat owner/host was extremely helpful and guided us to his houseboat, and in fact waited for us at the Nagin Lake shore to receive us at 1AM !! Over the next 3 days, i found his staff and the owner/host very hospitable and catered to all our requests. They guided us on the tours that could be taken, as it was my 1st time to Srinagar.The houseboat itself is at a quite location on Nagin Lake, and it's a beautiful sight to watch the lake from the deck.You could take the Shikara ride from Nagin Lake to Dal Lake and back, which means you don;t have to go to dal lake for the shikara ride. The room that i stayed in was comfortable, and had a seperate bed for my 6 year old daughter. The owner/host has almost 4 houseboats, and is a well known personality within the area. In short, stay at Golden Flower is value for money, and you won't regret your decision.:-)

    Priceless serenity”

    Hospitality, location and beauty

    We traveled to Srinagar on 13th April. We had a plan to stay at the house boat for 2 days but we liked it so much that we extended our stay by one more day. The reason being: 1. House boat is located at an island in Nagin lake. It is away from Dal lake where there is lot of activity but noise too. Nagin lake is preferred by those who want to appreciate the raw, serene and mystic beauty of kashmir. It is a personal choice. 2. The scenic beauty from the boat is just amazing. There are not many houseboats near it and the view of snow laden mountains is just amazing. 3. The free shikara rides took us to and from the nearest shore. It is sort of mini-adventure to know that we are cut-off from the roads. 4. The house boats are quite comfortable, which we didn't have expected. We were surprised to see bathtubs !! 5. The owner, Mr Yakub, the care takers, Irfan and Parvez are very warm people. We never felt that they are serving us because it is their job. They treat their customers genuinely like a guests. The food served is homemade and delicious. Though there is not much variety to chose from. 6. For any other trip around nearby locations, Mr Yakub arranged for taxis etc at very reasonable rates, surprisingly much lesser than what kashmir tourism or licenced taxi operators. 7. The vendors of kesar, walnuts, shilajit, pasjmina, handicrafts will patrol regularly around houseboats. Though I would suggest to buy it from Srinagar-Pahalgam highway where you can get it at 20-40% cheaper rates with same quality. Overall it was a wonderful experience for us. If we come to Srinagar again we will definitely stay here only.

    EXCELLENT”

    Location Staff Food

    To start with, it was an excellent stay at New Golden. Mr. Yaqub/Owner is terrific person and can be your guide not only in srinagar but also whole of kashmir. His brother was also equally attentive and helpful. Some may say that it is at Nagin Lake so away from market. But believe me, for market, you spend 2-3 hours but other time u need to relax,enjoy nature, calmness of kashmir. U can always goto market in car n come back. But for that, DONT ever go and stay at Dal lake. Location: This HB is located at a best location in nagin lake. Sunrise and even mountain views are good. No road noise & quiet place. Shikara ride is better at this place as no people to disturb u. At Dal lake, vendors come and distrub u in your romantic ride. FOOD: Mr. Yaqub serves homely food & the choice of menu is yours. In other HB's hotel food is brought from restaurents and served. Dinner and bfast was excellent. For 06 people bfast, he served us Poha, Upma, cornflakes, toast, omlette which we were not expecting. Also hot milk for kids. STAFF: Apart from owners (readily at your service), for our HB there was seperate full time butler. He will always be there to listen to ur orders. If I am not forgotten, he was Imran. OVERALL must stay HB in Srinagar and avoid DAL LAKE.
