Corbett Riverside Resort

Reviewed April 12, 2013

In Summary, I would say it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the serene nature and flow like the river flowing by. This was my first visit to meet Jim's tigers but offcourse that was not my main intent, but was only to relax and enjoy the nature. The resort met my expectations there.
Location:
It is at a place called Garjiya, near to the Ramanagar railway station (~15 mins) or bus stand.
It looks small for the outside but is quite big when you enter the place.
Resort:
Quite big resort with different categories of rooms especially based on the proximity from river or the lawn. Suggestion would to be either near river or with front lawns. Rooms near the reception have not much of view probably the cheapest options.
I wanted to stay close to the river so took the Presidential suites which are right beside the river and the best ! You can sit and enjoy the sound of flowing water and the cool breeze.
I even went down into the river and enjoyed a dip in the water :)
Food:
Food (meal) is only buffet. Tastes good with the right amount of salt/spice. It is not elaborate but fine for taste. You can order snacks, smaller food items in room too.
Activities:
I enjoyed cycling the most in the resort. There are cycles lying around which you can hop on and enjoy the younger days. There is not much playing options for children. It would be good to have a small swings, etc for children where they can enjoy.
Service:
You can consider it 3.5* property. In room cleaning requires work. In room amenities can also be improved to improve standards. Swimming pool also needed more cleaning. We had to catch the person to get rooms clean properly when staying.

I would definitely recommend staying in this resort for Corbett.

Room Tip: Presidential Suites or Riverside rooms which are next to the river are the best. Even the ones in f...

This was my 3rd visit to Jim Corbett and the best one. Stay:-We stayed in the river facing rooms above restaurant i.e., 143,144 and 147. The hotel is very nicely located at the bank of river Kosi.We had read the reviews on trip advisor and had thought that the visitors may have hiped their views, But frankly, we feel the same, now. Service:- Excellent. one of my family member wanted to have sugarcane juice. The Restaurant Manager Mr Virender, went out of the way and arranged for the juice for all of us.The person may have covered a distance of 10 kms (Ramnagar) to get that the juice.This shows the commitment of the staff to make the visitors stay comfortable and complete. Food:- All the meals were very tasty and had a added flavour of the hospitality of the staff, serving it, with personal touch given by Mr Virender, Restaurant Manager. This was not only for our family but with everyone, as observed by us. Facilities:- Badmonton, Football, Basket ball, Fishing,Cycling, Horse riding, etc are suffficient for recreation.I would recommend this resort to all my known and unknown contacts for the stay, if visiting Jim Corbett. A special thank to Nidhi Mathur for planning our trip in detail and making all our arrangements.

Room Tip: Rooms numbers 143,144, 145 and 147 best for families with grown up kids. Room number 126,127 and 128...

We planned our trip 45 days in advance as we reqd 3 rooms, thanks to Mr K D Arora's guidance (Resort's GM, based at Delhi head off) who was as always very helpful, friendly and transparent. He advised us to get jungle safari permit well in advance to have a real good experience of the the jungle, we went to Brijani. About the resort, we stayed at River front Suites which were very good, v big rooms, very good food, do meet Virender (f&b manager) and harish one of their staff who were amazing in terms of services. Food was good and esp snacks on the river side was just out of the world. There are many exciting activities to do , some are on the house from the resort and some are paid (rs 200 per activity) for which you have to go only 1 km away from resort (resort team helps to plan for you). A must visit destination. Tks KD once again

Dear Guest

Thank very much for writing a review on your short vacation break with us at Jim Corbett.
Our chef preparations are highly patronised by most of our very old guests since 1995!!
We regret for the inconvenience caused due to the personal music system played by a group of youngster (perhaps one of the few instances), though we discourage the corporates for the DJ's to be played in the forest surroundings which is banned by forest authorities.


thank you

I planned this trip impromptu. The resort is on bank of river, although river is partially dried (atleast when I visited it) and there was very little water. Food was good, although there is no room service and you have to walk to restaurant everytime.

The garden, swimming pool, sports playgroud was very well maintained. We enjoyed our stay in the resort very much.

Room Tip: Avoid big rooms in summers. AC cooling will not be enough.

Just came back from a trip to Corbett with my family. The place was a terrible let down after the reviews I had read on tripadvisor from other people. I was expecting a nice, clean resort with good service.
We drove from Gurgaon to Corbett and reached pretty early in the morning. We were told our room was ready. So far so good. We walk through the place, nice gardens and hammocks. All looks lovely. We reach closer to River View rooms area. The paint is coming off the building. The doors look old. There is a broom lying outside the room. We climb up a stinky staircase and enter our room. The room was okish but there was an old used floor mat lying bundled up outside in the verandah. The place looked very shabby and old.
I was immediately put off and wanted to run back home. Alas, so much for vacation excitement. I tried to look at the beautiful trees and convince myself that the place is nice.
I walk into the restaurant and I am greeted by this awful hostel mess smell. God, I am still unable to eat anything after my return. There was an old red, dirty tasla lying right next to the buffet table for used plates. Besides, all they served in food was dal, paneer and some aloo dish and some form of macaroni - for 5 lunches and dinner - I am so put off with food at the moment!

The kids play room next to the pool table room had a sofa whose foam was coming out from multiple places.
The TT room hadn't been aired for months - it stank and was being used as storage place.
Service was nothing great - towels would not be replaced until the next day - rooms not cleaned until you reminded 5-7 times.

I managed to get a room upgrade and that was a bit of saving grace else I might have just left the place, cut my losses and moved to a much better Mahindra property next door.

A nice place, being not maintained and kept well and oversold to clients.

Room Tip: Tiger and den suite are best among those available. Riverview is a total ripoff.

Dear Guest

It is sad to read on your review to mention name of some next door resort to malign our reputation, though you were comfortable at the Tiger Den Suite. Hence your review is suspicious.
