Great location, Good huts, Decent food, Friendly staff. A 2 day stay made awesome by all of the above, and a lot of rainfall! It's a pretty nice place located within the Chilla National Park- located besides a huge hydro-power dam. The entry/exit to/from the forest closes at 7:30PM sharp, and so post this time, there is absolutely no noise... More

The location is a little far from the main market. Took us a while finding it as we were asking for GMVN bungalow but we didnt know its known as Bharat Bhumi complex. That apart the place is huge with maybe around 40-50 rooms. The deluxe room was a bargain for Rs 840. The room was quiet big. The staff... More

You are always safe staying at the GMVNs (Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam). They are government run establishments, so the locations are always very good and the price is fair, even though the service is usually terrible. Other highly recommended GMVNs in the area, which are not listed on TripAdvisor include, Rudra Prayag, Uttar Kashi and Gangotri. They have the best... More

Very spacious building and built just away from the crowd of the main town. Lovely view of the mountains from the terrace. Though we only had coffee/tea in the restaurant, it felt very welcome. The rooms are sufficiently comfortable and we had two good nights rest there after weary days. 10 minutes away from the place of Ganga snaan and... More

I never expected any government enterprise to be as good as all GMVN hotels are. We did a 17 day long driving holiday in Uttaranchal and stayed at GMVN properties almost everywhere. Its a complete 'value for money' deal ... very very clean and huge spacious rooms / bathrooms. The food is very home made kinda food so good for... More

only draw back is the location is not near ganga nor downtown, ashrams, Laxhman Jhulua or Ram Jhuala, however, only a 10 rupee ride to town and another 10 to Laxhman or Ram Jhulua from the corner to the left of hotel front at the first main intersection and then move right toward downtown where internet and food markets are...

The GMVN Bharat Bhumi resort is located on Haridwar-Rishikesh highway with easy access and ample parking space. The hotel is huge with some 50 plus rooms and remains crowed during the pilgrimage season. Food is ok but this hotel is best in terms of a transit facility for the char dham pilgrimage. There are two more GMVN hotels in Rishikesh.... More

All GMVN Hotels are very good for the money they ask for. One thing is very common in GMVN Hotels, and that is that they are very clean - wherever they are. And also, the food menu is so common and the preparations all taste the same. :) We stayed at GMVN Bharat Bhoomi. It is a large property... clean... More
