This hotel has a pretty garden, nice spacious rooms and a terrific view. Book in advance in high season! Restaurant looks georgeous especially in the evening, but service can be a bit slow. Staff is very friendly and relaxed.

We stayed in the best room in this place. The views are amazing!! I am giving this a low rating because of the following - unfortunately there is absolutely no customer service. The front desk manager can be rude and demeaning when you ask for new towels, room cleaning, toilet paper, etc. You have to ask for cleaning before noon.... More

It is set in a community called High Bank, a 30 minute walk from Laxman Jhula. High Bank has everything... More

I have been at Bhandari Swiss Cottage now two times, both for several months and I would come back again and again. It is so much cleaner than ashrams I have been to, in fact, this would be a 5-star hotel compared to the ashrams where I have been. The view of the Himalayas is incredible, as it the view... More

Stayed here for two weeks. Room was not cleaned during this time despite me asking after one week, I was just given towels and bedsheets without pillow slips, even the rubbish bins were never emptied. The view was fantastic, mountains and the Ganges. Cafe was located in a lovely green garden and served tasty food. Despite the lack of cleaning... More

We stayed for a week here and actually should have moved out sooner... The manager is not pleasant and barley helpfull. The room was ok but the toilet was discussing and the water didn't work sometimes. The water stream was like a drip. The price is really not worth it!

I was quite astonished when I arrived and saw such really super clean rooms in that price range (300 INR). The view from the balconies in front of the rooms is great and it's a superb place to read a book or talk to other travellers sitting in front of their rooms. The food of the garden restaurant that is... More

The place has been my choice to stay when on a budget trip. Rooms on top floor are the best and also offer nice view from the terrace. The restaurant serves nice food and also has some fresh bakery. The staff is really helpful & friendly. It is always a nice experience to stay here.
