First a disclaimer, the review is for Hotel located just above Shivpuri, Rishikesh. The property is from Neemrana Hotels. The address shown in Tripadvisor - Gular-Dogi seems incorrect. The Neemrana hotel group is known for heritage properties and thus same flair can be seen for this resort also. The hotel staff wears ethnic uniform - Kurta and Pyjama to add... More

This was my 5th stay at Glass house, but one after a long gap. We always, always stayed in Kaveri and Godavri, because it offered great privacy and independent access to the Ganges thru a short cut. So, for our latest trip, we booked the same room. Except that, except the name, everything has changed about these rooms. Firstly, they... More

The outhouse of the royal family of Garhwal, the Glasshouse on the Ganges is one of the finest properties of the Neemrana Group. The property overlooks the Shiwalik range of the Himalayas and is located by the banks of the flowing Ganga. Not far up north is the Devprayag, where the Bhagirathi mingles with the Alaknanda to give birth to... More
