We were simply blown away when we saw the property. It's a beautiful place and very well kept and managed by Yasmeen. Mubarak, who helps around the place is a real treasure. We had booked the whole house as we were 7 of us and had a great family time. Breakfast was complimentary …

We had an absolutely lovely experience staying at this property. Its located a little afar from the main city but that probably also adds to the beauty of it. Its a quaint property with no disturbances. We were 6 people staying at the property and we made it our home for the 3 ni…

The property is set on the hill with wonderful views out front onto dal lake. At the back of the house there's a national park... so the perfect setting! The house itself is built out of stone and wood in a very stylish fashion. Its most probably the most beautiful house in the …

Communication with Madhu was great with prompt replies to all my questions. The people living in the "main house" next door are very nice, anxious to help, and interesting to talk to. Check in and out was easy. The house looks great and generally would be a very nice place to st…

Response from Madhu:
Dear Roger, We at Shangraff Srinagar were happy to receive you, but you demanded a whole lot more than a liberal Indian hospitality can give. Further to answer your unwanted views on how to maintain a private house I would like to explain. The distance between the Dal Lake and our house is ten minutes by car and its mentioned in the listing at Airbnb. Unfortunate you missed it out. In refrence to your comment on a wood house, according to our standards there is a lot of wood on the floors and the ceiling that’s why the wooden house. The other distressing part of your review regarding the kitchen is totally wrong and unfound. You seem to have got your calibration of the layout wrong. The kitchen is in the main house, adjoining the dinning room. The staff has full access to it as they cook for the guests and for themselves. You were given special permission to use the kitchen from the owner as you insisted upon it. In the review you mention that there were people walking around the house, that’s because they are supposed to do so. They are security guards and walk around the house for your protection. They live in the same premises in the outhouse. Bathrooms don’t have curtains as you mentioned. All bathroom windows have etched glass that you could have closed if you wanted to. Your one view on the staff watching television is true and has been appreciated. I have explained to them to avoid watching TV when guests are in the house. Though the TV is their only source of getting news in the critical and sensitive region as Srinagar. Wifi is controlled by the government and has always been a struggle in Srinagar to have it on continuously. This is much better now. Roger it seems you missed out on the bigger picture, that of the beauty of Srinagar, the house and the extended hospitality that was met out to you by Yasminji. You missed out on mentioning the large house that was given to you fully in spite you paying for just one room. Its well-designed and large bathrooms. The pine wood ceilings. Gardens around the house. A well stocked and staffed house, Neat and clean. And not to mention the least an amazing deal on the price. Anyway being an Indian and hospitable I will take cogence of all you have mentioned and strive to make the stay better for my other guests. Do come again.
