You could sit and chat for hours in lawns, verandas, river side or just be. Limited pretty rooms, good home cooked food and great staff...all make your stay worthwhile but the acco is a... More

This little, isolated (to my liking) place on Ganga confronted my conventional wisdom because even though its location, and its people who look after it, and you, in such a wonderful manner, might seem theoretical, but the fun here is real. The silence of the place and its sorrounding hills here is broken only by that gushing River, and occasional... More

We stayed at this resort in June'12. It's a boutique resort with all its rooms decorated uniquely and in retro style. So it give you a feel of a heritage property. All the rooms are huge in size and toiletries are nice. It's situated right at the bank of ganga where you sit on the rocks and feet in the... More

It is a family hotel. The food is good.We enjoyed to sit at the Ganges. The wifi is not working very well. The rooms are very big. The way to the hotel is not good. Your driver should drive quite slowly.

Our family of six, including 3 senior citizens, made a last minute change in plan and spent a night at the glasshouse. We wished we had stayed at least another night-one of the best stays I have ever had. Beautifully done up rooms, great food and that oh so calming hum of the Ganga rushing by. You can't help but...

The place is situated very well near the ganga. And compared to other resorts in Rishikesh, it's really good. The ambiance, food, is very good. But I feel it's a bit over priced, especially the food. The arrangements are very nice; Absolutely neat and clean. It's right on the beach so access is really good. Security is not a concern.... More
