High Bank Peasant Cottage was an alright place to stay. The location was easily the best thing about it, although the same could probably be said for all of the accommodation in the High Bank area. It is removed from the crammed main area of Rishikesh and it was nice to be able to step outside the hotel without being harassed by the usual rickshaw drivers etc. Just a short walk down the driveway led you to a few rickshaws who were always waiting to take travelers down into the main area near Lakshman Jhula.
The bathroom was plain and our friends (in the room next door) had such a bad smell coming from their bathroom that they often came to use ours. The bed was a "double" (two singles shoved together with a miscellaneous hard post down the middle) but blankets provided were warm and we had a comfortable sleep.
Service was helpful but a little unfriendly. The main guy in reception was very accommodating when we decided to leave one day early and readily gave us our money back for the canceled night.
The restaurant at the nearby Swiss Bandari guest house was a surprise delight - great food with good prices and lovely waiters with a smile.
