“3 Star Room, 5 Star Environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We went here in January & further north into the Himalayas, the hotel is 20+km from actual rishikesh city -but this doesn't bother me, because i was not staying here to experience rishikesh, it was more about a unique location, truly one of a kind & ease of access back to main road to continue further into the himalayas / or a great place to stay if your going to be in area & want the hotel as a base.
I say the room is a 3 star because it is -i had one of the general rooms right on the river, with chairs outside room facing river. Nothing special about the room, a bed, normal linens, can be very cold so ask for heaters & bathroom very big but not the greatest shower & hot water runs out quick. i was not too concerned with the room as i was pleased with my overall experience.
The hotel grounds are amazing, they have created an amazing environment with lush plants everywhere, peaceful walkways & nice outdoor seating. There are reviews complaining about not having a "night scene" or "nothing to do" at night -these people can not embrace & be one with nature, because the best thing about this hotel is not having "that scene" anywhere around you. Calm, serenity, peace of mind & rest -these are the reasons one should stay here.
Ok, the food at the hotel: Holy Crap -the food at the hotel is amazing. The chef is one of a kind, their lunch dish selections are phenomenal & dinner menu or buffet is top notch -the food may be possibly greatest food from any indian hotel in india. Its solid "home made" type food -and it will appease any taste pallet.
Service at the hotel is enough, they will advise you best they can & get whatever you want done. We went rafting, someone picked us up from the hotel, the hotel set it up it was solid.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Although it was quite well appointed (improved from previous reviews, I think), it just lacked atmosphere. To be fair, this wasn’t really the hotel’s fault but we were the only guests that night and the service seemed a little ‘over attentive’ while the waiter stood by our table for dinner and at breakfast. The food was excellent, but this is a ‘dry’ hotel.

Our room and bathroom were large and initially quite cold although three heaters were provided, so temperature wasn’t a big problem. The Glass House does boast a wonderful location with fabulous views and walks along the banks of the Ganges and I imagine that a stay later in the year with more guests would be a much more cheerful experience.

The problem is, that after dark, there’s nothing to do, obviously, there’s no bar, dry or otherwise and so no focal point for people to gather, meet and chat in (this was less of an issue for us the only guests). Another thing that was a bit strange was the fact that the main lounge area has its roof and upper surfaces finished in bare concrete, which didn’t go with the standard of furniture or views – not terrible, just a bit odd looking.

This is now my official favorite getaway from New Delhi. Just a 5 hours drive, nestled in Shivpuri on the white sand beach of Ganges. It is perfect and must place to visit. of all the 5 properties of Neemrana I have stayed in all over India, this I think is the best.
Stay in the luxury tent, they are the best.
Clean and cosy rooms.Well done up.
It is a quiet place.
Lovely for time on your own.
Meals are part of the buffet. Though too many items, nice but little way too oily. One thing they need to do is reduce the number of items and improving the taste a bit more.

Dear Guest,

We are delighted to receive your warm and appreciative review about The Glasshouse on the Ganges hotel near Rishikesh.

It is heartening to learn that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay in the tent which is pitched just above the bank from where you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the holy river below and the Himalayan foothills above.

We have noted your suggestions about the food and have conveyed the same to the Chef and his team.

Glasshouse is a very well located property - right on the Ganges. The property itself is ok and has average rooms. Food is good. Staff is courteous and friendly. Neemrana properties are known for their locale and the property itself though this one could be better. The location takes the cake. Had a good family vacation after a very long time.

Room Tip: Ground floor larger rooms are the ones to go for.

Glasshouse makes a superb holiday destination-beautiful location, well maintained premises, great food and courteous staff. Truly enjoyed the stay on the banks of river Ganga and the pleasant weather. You feel close to mother nature, away from the hustle bustle of city life and it is true value for money too!

We stayed at the Glasshouse on New Year's eve 2012. This is the second Neemrana property we have stayed at, and it did not disappoint. The property itself is lovely,the location is perfect for a wind down from the hustle and bustle, the staff so attentive. There was a NYE party, which was very nice. To make it perfect, we even had really good massages by Monica.

We had a great walk along the beach where the property is located.

Just note that the property is some distance from Rishikesh, and took us about an hour and half to get to the ashram (we were in a people mover which on those very windy roads, takes longer than a normal car. We were told by some guests that it took them about 45 mins in a car), so if you need/want to be in the thick of it all, this is not the place for you.

For us, it was perfect. We would come back again.

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
