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

I had such a wonderful stay here. First of all the location is ideal, just off the main badrinath rd and up high enough to be a more quiet and peaceful stay, but close enough to walk to ram jula or lakshaman jula. The staff was also wonderful and so helpful! The main man in the office even upgraded our... More

I have stayed here before and this was a second time. This time due to the yoga week we got the room only on one night. Other night we had to stay at another place in main town. Hill Top as usual was calm, quiet, and not so Indian, Has a goa/ashram feel around this place. It is casual and... More

I stayed at the Hill top Swiss Cottage for 5 days as I was travelling to Rishikesh alone and had seen the fantastic reviews online. I must say as soon as I arrived I was welcomed by the staff and felt in safe hands. My room was basic but had everything I needed and most of all was clean. The... More
