This place has so much potential with its amazing views of rishikesh and the river Ganga. Unfortunately its owner lets it down. We didn't manage to get a smile out of him during our whole five night stay and we felt uncomfortable being anywhere near him. Most of the other staff are lovely and welcoming. There are a few other...

Would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for peace and quiet. Its located slightly off the main road hence away from the hustle bustle of the town but is at easy walking distance from most of the important sites. Has an amazing rooftop and the view is beautiful. Very friendly staff and the rooms are nice and cosy.

This place is really great. Away from the hustle and bustle, one can really settle in and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Rishikesh. The staff is great, English speaking. The rooms are big and comfortable and there is always hot water. A terrace allows a view of the Ganges River and hot tea is always available to guests. They...

Nice garden, nice food, amazing view from the rooftop restaurant. The rooms are not bad - some are definitely better than others, and if you can choose the ones in the reception's building are definitely better. They have a yoga room in which they offer daily classes and the only thing they should improve is the cleaning service (they clean...

Me and my mother, we had a lovely time at the Cottage! We could relax, meditate, and do yoga in the mornings. The breakfast was very generous, it was given every morning in the rooftop. We had a view over the Ganga, which was amazing. The room was very clean and cosy. Rajeev and Sima are lovely people, and they...

The terrace which was one flight of stairs from my room had a good view of the river and the nearby town. Rooms are comfortable with large baths. There is no restaurant attached but there are eateries very close by. What I liked most about the place was the greenery around and the calmness in the room and the outside...

This hotel really benefits from being situated in a small colony of other hotels, restaurants, small shops and tourist offices. That may not sound too enticing but it works very well, especially as the colony is in a quiet, peaceful valley off the main road but within walking distance of the Laxman Jhula. The hotel itself is straightforward, possibly a...
