Our room was not facing the river, but was still very pleasant; we actually felt it was nice to get away from the river every now and then! The roof terrace was available if we wanted to watch the scene on the ghats, although some work was being done, so it was not as tidy as it could have been. The food was good, though after 3 dinners and 2 lunches we were getting to the end of the menu. Our only complaint was that the serving staff were too attentive; it was rather off-putting to be so closely watched while we ate, and every other mouthful a waiter appeared to top up our plates or ask if it was ok, which got rather annoying. A very good Indian band played all three evenings, which added to the atmosphere.
