I have been staying here for years, mainly because Mama herself is the main attraction. Her hospitality is legendary in this area of Topavan where guesthouses and cottages abound. Her son Mukesh is the technical expert and handles many of the wifi and travel questions. Her daughter in law handles the laundry and other service matters.

I had never expected my stay in mama cottage to have such a bad ending. When I arrived looking for a room I was received in a very friendly way and I was offered a room for the period of time that I needed it. After I moved there I realised that the apparently nice atmosphere present in the place... More

Mama starts off very cute and endearing but soon becomes pushy and harassing. I was there for a week and then she told me I had to leave the next day, when I pushed here on it I found out it was because she wanted to charge more for the room, she said she would let me stay if I... More

I arrived in Rishikesh without booking accommodation and fortunately stumbled across mama's family run cottage. I had the most enjoyable experience here. Mama goes out of her way to look after all of her 'sons and daughters' (mama refers to all guests as her sons and daughters!). This place is adored by all that stay so getting a room here... More

Mama cottage is a great place to stay in the high bank of rishikesh. The place is run by Mama and her family; they make delicious homemade food every day for a ridiculous price! Rooms are wide, clean and definitely great value for what you pay. There are a few shops close to the place but anyway Laxman Jhula is... More

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
