Hardiwar and Rishikesh was on my personal "must do" list during our visit to India. This was my first visit, while my travelling companions, my wife and her parents, had been there previously.
The Great Ganga is situated very close to the Ganges River on a steep bank. The walk up the driveway can take your breath away. We did have a great view out our balcony though. The rooms are pretty simple and are clean. There is very good heater in the room which came in handy as it does get fairly cold in the evenings. The bathroom does not have bathtub and has a very small geyser, so take a quick shower!
Service was okay, however they did forget to have our packed breakfast ready on time (we were leaving at 06:00 am) but very quickly threw something together. The restaurant is completely vegetarian.
