Mama's Cottage is an absolute delight. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Mama and steaming mugs of masala chai, who showed us a variety of budget rooms, all at unbelievably cheap prices. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Mama really adopted us like daughters and her cooking was absolutely excellent, I really recommend the thali! High Bank area itself... More

situated in calm & serene place of Tapovan area of Rishikesh. Away from noisy town of rishikesh. Mama(Aunty) is very hospitable and cooks really good Indian food. Peaceful and calm place. Decent rooms. lots of cafes around. You get a chance to meet people from a lot of countries.

Mama is a lovely warm person who takes care to ensure you have a great stay with her. The rooms are simple and clean. A little balcony was nice to get a breeze. Mama is very friendly and anything that we needed was provided with a smile. Great location.

Mama herself is a delightful soul and her rooms were very clean and comfortable - next time I visit Rishikesh I will stay here again for sure. I also love it's location in Swiss Cottage as it is an eclectic community that I enjoyed being a part of - thank you Mama for a delightful experience.

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
