I had went to this cottage with my friends and everyone was so happy with the choice. The vintage vibes this cottage had was very refreshing. The host Shakila aunty and her husband are very kind and generous people. We had booked 3 rooms in this cottage for 2 days but the first day we were stuck in a curfew in Sonamarg so we couldn't reach and they didn't charge us for that day without us even asking.The well maintained garden is serene. Would definitely visit again, this time with family!
Cottage Nigeen is a beautiful home, the interiors give you a very warm feeling even housing a library. Shakila ji, her husband and her entire staff make sure that you feel at home. We personally liked her recommendations whether it was a cafe recommendation or any places to visit. She goes out of her way to curate the best experience for you in Srinagar depending on the time you have at her place. You are in for delicious lip smacking food by Tahira and comfortable services by Mukul once you step your foot in Cottage Nigeen. We highly recommend being in this cottage if you visit Sringara. They are lovely hosts, really humble and beautiful souls!
a clean cottage and well decorated , cozy and has a lovely garden.the nigeen lake is a 1 min walk, and nigeen lake is much cleaner than dal lake. nice ventilated rooms and decent kitchen service . well maintained property
Shakila auntie was a wonderful host and the staff was very helpful polite and sweet. Tahira was one of the sweetest staff who cooked wonderful meals for my daughter and us. And was very sweet. The property was very clean, gave homely feel, with a pleasant garden, gazebo and the back yard had apple, pear trees with vegetable garden. Food was very reasonable and she served her homemade pickles and apple jam with it. It was the small things that matter like they had turned the geyser on before we arrived, so we'd have hot water right away. And shakila auntie would be right in the kitchen making sure all the food was prepared up to the mark. She is a superhost and very beautiful lady.
A manicured lawn lined by flowering trees in front. A kitchen garden, apple and pear trees at the back. And a picture postcard house. Inside, spacious, well-appointed rooms tastefully furnished. Excellent Kashmiri and other dishes selected and cooked with lots of care by Tahira and her team. Topping it all are Shakila and Riyaz, fine examples of Kashmiri nobility. You cant really ask for more for a quiet, comfortable holiday in Srinagar. During these Covid-cursed times, the staff's contactless service showed how they cared about the guests' health concerns. Three minutes' walk and you are at the Nigeen Lake for a marvellous view of the sunset. It's far away from the touristy bustle around Dal Lake. Would love to stay there every time we are in Srinagar.
