After starting at a not so great hotel around the corner mama was are peaceful, clean, and relaxing sanctuary. We were welcome with a warm smile and efficient service. This is also a great place to get your laundry done. Would defiantly stay here again.

A family run cottage with this elderly lady that takes care of you like your own. There is no restaurant space as such but they serve food, tea, coffee at really affordable prices. Also the rooms are neat and tidy and hot water runs all through the day. There are like 3 terraces with a couple of chairs lying around... More

I see that no one has ever had a bad thing to say about Mama's. It is such a perfect place for the weary traveler. I found Mama's on Trip Advisor but did not make any reservations or anything. I arrived to Mama's at 6am (having taken the overnight train from Rishikesh) and unfortunately she had no room. I ended... More

Fantastic and economical guesthouse. "Mama" calls everyone either son or daughter, and definitely makes you feel at home - eating breakfast and dinner in her dining room with the family. The rooms are spartan but very clean, and the view from the High Bank is gorgeous. Would definitely recommend this place to fellow travellers, whether solo or a couple/family.

Oh mama you provided me with the best Thali I've had in India! Room was always clean and food was cheap and good! Very nice and friendly homestay-feeling. And also very nice to meet interesting people because of the living area where everybody is eating ! See ya again ;)

Good place, Mama just wants to be mama. She doesn't care other things much. This makes this place cool. She calls herself "mama" and all the guests "son" and "daughter". Thali is for sure the best as for the price and one of the best in India. Cheapest londry in the area as well. You can get a room with... More

Stayed 3 nights in one of the upstairs rooms. Located amongst other accom and restaurants on high bank, 15 min + walk to Rishikesh 'centre.' Thalis are good and fairly cheap, Mamas banoffee pie and masala chai are awesome! Plenty of smoking in the eating area if thats your thing. Cheap ish, 400r for three people, fan cooled in Sept.
