Located at a height, barely a minute's walk from the bank of the Ganga. The height provides you with a glorious view of the Ganga, Janki bridge and view of the grand arti on the opposite bank . Another advantage of the height is that it insulates you from the noise of the traffic and the crowds. The breakfast is buffet type with lovely variations and the lunch and dinner are a la carte with a wide range of options. Both food and service are excellent.

It was an excellent stay at your hotel. The staff is very helpful, food was excellent. Excellent view of Ganga from the balcony. I think everyone tried to follow Mr Gautam Rawat in extending the courtesy. Due to this we decided to extend our stay for 2-3 more days

Hotel location is very good at Rishikesh, near the bank of Ganges. Good for walk along the bank of the river. Food was good. However there is no elevator (lift) if you have a room downstairs. They have shuttle electric rikshwa to and from the road.

This is A hotel whose pictures dont lie… if you want to blindly pick a hotel with great views, just 2 min walk from the ghats, good food, clean rooms, then this hotel checks all the marks. We had visited this place 10 years ago and the views are still great. Also staff is very helpful. We had booked a wrong hotel bedzz on the other side of lakshman jhula and were desperately looking for a good hotel to switch. Mr chandan helped a lot, and so did other staff …. And thanks to them we ended with a great trip to rishikesh… take the premium rooms for the best views. Overall very good exp. thanks guys.

Overall a very pleasant stay, like their hospitality and food was awesome at a reasonable price. You should stay there for a week only to taste every variety of food given in menu. We relished kadai veg n hakka noodles.

Great place to stay. Stayed one day prior to Ganga Dussehra hotel were full. Just walked in to hotel. There is very good eRiksha to take you to reception and found room well maintained but slightly over priced. Best part from check in to check out be it housekeeping, front office, restaurant service team during breakfast or chef food quality Overall all value for money. Must try this hotel without thinking specially due to staff and upkeep.😊😊👍👍👍👍
