Staff were incredibly accommodating, letting us hold the room beside us for a friend who was arriving two days later, although I'm sure they could... More

The hotel is situated in a very peaceful part of Rishikesh affording us an incredible view of the Ganges for our balcony. The rooms are clean, and very good value for money. The management team were very helpful and flexible (as our plans kept changing) which ensured we received a hugely enjoyable Rishikesh experience. Laxman Jhula was within a walkable... More

Rooms were spacious and tidy and the view from the balcony of the mountains was breathtaking. Beds were very comfortable and the AC worked very well. The views from this hotel... More
