The place had no power backup, i and my whole family had to spend the sleep less night. We could not sleep get a wink whole night. There was no power the next day also, they made no efforts for the convenience of their guests. We kept roaming around the hotel whole night with nobody to attend to us.The room... More

The guest checked in as walk in guest and the prices were decided there and then. In the evening guest came and said that he likes the hotel and will good write things about the hotel. He then asked for a discount which the hotel management refused. This guest roamed around the area on second day and bought the rates... More

We stayed at tis place for 3.5 days. It was a pleasant experience. Pros: - Location is picture perfect - Goes soft on your pocket - Courteous staff - spacious and comfortable rooms - Free WiFi - We requested for a day's extension. Inspite of the weekend rush, they provided us a room to stay at the same rate. Cons:... More

We planned for two days and wanted to visit mussourie after rishikesh which never happened. We were so relaxed here or you can say this place made us lazy. The hotel... More

As it's name implies, the Hilltop Swiss Cottage is at the top of a small, quiet, isolated complex which is a short stroll away from vibrant and busy Rishikesh. We also used it as a base from which to go on our six day mountain trek booked with Red Chilli Adventures just down the road. The room we got on... More

We had booked Luxury Rooms for 2 nights, but we were given standard rooms. Later while checking out, the management is charging us for the stay even though we had already paid full money in advance, such is the ignorance of the management. And, only later on they realized that they had given us wrong rooms. When it comes to... More

I stayed alone for 2 days and on day one there was a toilet problem - that I diagnosed as long term - requiring major work. I informed management and they moved me to another room and promised to deal with the root cause of the problem. Unfortunately, the very next day, my parked car as damaged by the hotel... More

The staff at the Hill Top Swiss Cottage was one of the most welcoming I've ever encountered. friendly, super helpful and accommodating. Location is great up the hill from Laxman Jhula, away from the hustle bustle and crowds. And the views of the Ganga are wonderful especially when you go and sit in the terrace. I loved sitting their and... More

I have been to India on quite lengthy trips twice, and I have to say in all that time that my hotel room at Hill Top Swiss Cottage has been my favourite. We got one of the deluxe doubles with a balcony ( I think that was the title of the room), and it did not disappoint! The room itself... More

The hotel although basic had all facilities promised. Most of the guests were back packers but we stayed one month. The food was good and the bed comfortable. The bedding and towels were shabby but clean enough. The floors could have done with cleaning more often with a cleaner cloth rather than the dirty rag. The staff were wonderful, friendly... More

I reserved room for one month... but changed my plans. The booking company, Hostelz demanded full payment and was ready just to charge my credit card even though I cancelled days in advance. But the young man, Nishante, in charge of reservations at this group of rooms and cottages on High Bank area in Rishikesh, truly took care of me... More
