“Excellent Hotel with a fabulous view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is truly a splendid hotel after the renovation.The view of the ganges is amazing especially from the Lotus suite's french windows. Eclectic interiors, great staff especially Anil Singh - the guest relations manager who goes out of his way to make you comfortable, convenient location, a private ghat and all sorts of services make this property a must stay. The food can be better though with more choices.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and will visit them again with my family.

Hotel Ganga Kinare stands by its name. Its just by the river and has a private ghat entrance making it nice for a Dip to avoid onlookers :P. We took a package deal including spa which was very nice as well. The lady in the spa was very good. Food is okay Only vegetarian food is served. Its close to triveni ghat 20 min walk via a beautiful trail. we even saw a elephant bathing in the river. All amenities are good.

This hotel has got the best view of Ganges and it's as the name suggest on the banks of the river Ganges. The hotel is good and the service is excellent. The rooms are clean. But the best part was we got to see elephants (three - two tuskers) on the other side of the river for quite some time from the restaurant. In fact in our stay we saw these elephants twice. The hotel had done arrangement for family river rafting which was a very wonderful experience. Mr Anil and his entire team from the hotel had made our stay memorable. Must stay hotel at Rishikesh

We recently visited this hotel on our return from Rudraprayag and we very impressed with their hospitality. Just to mention briefly the rooms which enjoys excellent view of the Ganges and the Rajaji National Park were kept ready to ensure speedy check in post a long travel. The staff of the hotel Ganga Kinare were very efficient, humble and added personal touch to their service. We were very happy to see the rooms were sufficiently large well spaced and well planned to incorporate all modern amenities and had a very large bathroom to itsef. The dining space also overlooked the Ganges so one could enjoy a peaceful meal and the quality of the F&B was very good. It has F&B facilities to cater to corporate clients as well. The property is very well located and enjoys the scenic beauty of river Ganges and Rajaji National Park. In fact as we stepped into our rooms we could see a dozen of spotted Deers trying to quinch their thirst from the holy water of river Ganges. This was amazing. The guests alse has the option of enjoying both morning and evening Aarti of river Ganges. It has a private ghat and a lovely lawn next to the ghat where one can relax at ease . Not to forget that the river water is very clean in front of Ganga Kinare. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and look forward to repeat visits. Indeed it offers value for money when you compare everything that the facility has to offer for the travellers.
