What an amazing haven in the middle of beautiful forests and so close to the river that you have everything at your fingertips. Such a beautiful relaxing atmosphere that your stresses just melt away. Sitting by the fire at night with the hospitality of the team there was just wonderful. Looking up at the stars and feeling like you've been... More

Bull's Retreat is a real place to stay closer to nature with charming set up, relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff, nice and clean rooms. Highly recommended and perfect place to stay at Shivpuri.

Definitely one of my most favorite and memorable experiences in India. Our group of 12 had a marvelous stay at Bull's Retreat. The hotel grounds and rooms were lovely and clean. The staff was very polite and attentive. The food was great and special requests were happily accommodated. We had a fun time rafting down the Ganges. The river guides... More

A couple of days back I was there at Bull's Retreat with my relatives along with my pet dog and we had the best time of our lives. The rooms are clean, calm, peaceful and comfortable. The staff are friendly and the best part of it is the food. I am looking forward to going there again early next year......

Away from the main action area of Rishikesh (50 Mins drive from Rishikesh in Shivpuri Village). Unfriendly staff. Visited the place and did not check in. Seeing the location turned back for Rishikesh.

Dear M'am, You reviewed us earlier on October 22nd, 2014 and it was clear from your review that you had never stayed at Bull's Retreat. I responded to your earlier review (where you had claimed to come with your family), clear in my opinion that this was a fraud review. It would seem that you have now deleted the earlier... More

A cosy warm getaway in the foothills of the lower Himalayas. Very Friendly staff and attentive, ready to meet all your demands with never ending smiles. The food simply great and innovative, I can say pretty much home cooked. We have been here with our family, kids loved it and as well the elders. Rooms are correct to the needs... More

I spent many days at Bulls this year. Work and pleasure took me several times there. The love with which Renu Ji will welcome and the boys received me made a world of difference to the whole experience. And the icing on the cake was the food. The home-styled food would anyway beat the best of the buffets I had... More

A lovey place to be for a quick weekend getaway. Excellent service with very efficient staff, specially the lady at the front desk. Delicious food and very comforting atmosphere, far from maddening crowds of the center. Rooms are neat n clean and peaceful. Different room names adding character to your stay. A morning walk uphill on a very well marked... More
