The location of the hotel is fantastic....right on the fast flowing Ganga. The rooms are interestingly and differently done up with breathtaking views. Service is good but food is quite mediocre. With no eateries close by one has no option but to eat on the premises.

This review might have been wholly positive with a 5 star rating had it not been for their lies about their hidden charges and markups over rafting services. Great property, food is meh, awesome location. With a property like Glasshouse, you don't relate value for money. That's how good the place is. But I'm never visiting them again. Because they...

The hotel is located on the banks of the river and away from the hustle bustle of the city, which is a great thing. But the problem is pricing. It's not really worth spending that much. They have a makeshift spa also but the prices are of a 4 star hotel. It's a nice place overall if you get a... More

The Glasshouse on the Ganges (TGG) is unlike some other Neemrana properties I have stayed at. TVs in the room, modern showers! Maybe this is to do with the fact that its a 21st Century property. But what TGG does have in common with other Neemrana properties is the signature charm, superb location and great service. Located on the banks... More

It is a beautiful property nestled amidst greenery next to Ganga with direct access to the river... almost a little private beach. It is calm, quite and relaxing especially away from the noise of the city. The rooms are clean and spacious. Even the tents are furnished tastefully and have a private porch overlooking the river. The staff and service... More

Its a picturseque location, sound of ganges, and clean and nicely decorated hotel. The service was not as expected from a hotel of that stature or price, especially at the breakfast. We stayed in a luxury tent one day and another day at a small suite, just a blissful experience. If younare staying in tent, watch out for monkeys.

The glasshouse on the ganges was an overwhelming experience as you could relax in tranquil environment listening to just the river flowing just outside your room. The room was clean and good with terrace and verandah giving ample opportunity to sit out in shade and open. Service was very good and food was basic and sufficient.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Glasshouse on the Ganges, honours an extraordinary geographical site where the Ganga turns around and flows north towards its source. It is a magical natural spot. Set in a lychee and mango orchard of the Maharajas of Tehri Garhwal, with a garden of tropical plants, full of rare birds and butterflies, it has a sand beach of its own.After the maddening hustle of the crowds which throng the daily dip or the Kumbh Mela, there is no better haven of calm anywhere in the vicinity of Rishikesh. It is known for its serene and spiritual atmosphere. You can easily commute between the Glasshouse and the crowded pilgrimage spots without feeling the strain of its fascinating but continuous oppression of numbers–the calmest bank to watch the Kumbh! You can enjoy an evening Arti at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram. You could also visit the Ram Jhula and the Lakshman Jhula. ... more   less
