“Good hospitality”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We visited the hotel for a day. The hospitality and the service at the hotel was really very good. Further, even though the approach road was not very impressive, once we reached, the view was awesome.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your kind words of appreciation. We are happy you enjoyed the property, its services and the view..It is indeed a breathtaking view..
We are sorry for the inconveniece of the approach road being inside however if you look at the bright side, being inside only makes the property more quiet and cut away from traffic and street noise..

thank you

Had seen plenty of reviews before choosing this place ...kept fingers crossed. Must say...no regrets..it was a truly amazing experience. Great view from the rooms, the corridors leading to the rooms and the big balcony(which appears in the photographs) where break fast / lunch and even dinner can be served.A very nice homely environment with every staff and the owner himself ensuring that the guests are having a comfortable stay. Walking distance from Laxman Jhula this is the perfect place to be if you are looking for a nice relaxed vacation at Rishikesh.

To compliment it all...the owner also guided us on all good places to visit and to eat out at...and we were benefited by his reviews n feedback.

Thanks n cheers..Divine Ganga Cottage

I rarely write anything about hotels but for this one I would love to write. Me and my husband booked this cottage online and to our surprise it really turned out to be one of the best choices..

View of the mountains and the ganga river is spectacular from the cottage. Even if you are sitting in the balcony or the courtyard ,you will feel a fresh breeze blowing almost all the time. You can also watch people coming back from rafting while sitting in the courtyard. The best part of it is the cleanliness with lots of greenery around. I really loved seeing a small temple and variety of plants all around the place which was so refreshing...
The staff was really nice, friendly and cooperative, Initially we had few problems with the room but The manager Gautami was so understanding and helpful which made our stay really comfortable.
The 2 chefs in the kitchen at the top of the hotel were really great. I miss their Veg sandwich which was made from a fresh bread that they baked fresh in the kitchen. The menu was good too and they would also change things according to your taste which is unlikely to get in restaurants of big hotels. Thanks to Shashiji and Madan, I would love to eat the same fresh food when next time I come :) Above that cost was also reasonable So what else you want. We have even recommended this place to others.
.The rooms and the other facilities were also good so Overall we had a great time and would love to visit the same place in next holidays.. :)

Room Tip: No doubt rooms facing river are good but that doesn't mean the other rooms are not worth going f...

Dear Guest,
I am really touched by your kind words..A satisfied guest is very imperative for us. Yes our two lovely chefs who sit on the roof top somehow whip together fabulous dishes for everyone. The bread they make is very fresh and not to mention most of the vegetable they use are from our organic garden.. That put together with the lovely view of the ganga and its fresh breeze makes your meal even more special.. Thanks for visiting us.

We hope to see you again very soon.

thank you

I rarely write hotel reviews but for this one I'd love to ..

The Goods -

~Cottage is located at the bank of Ganga and the river facing rooms have amazing view . While sitting in balcony you'll feel a refreshing cool breeze all the time which nullify effect of summer .

~Hotel staff is very humble and convincing. You're never going to yell on them cause they'll won't give you any chance .

~Rooms are completely neat and clean and interiors are beautiful .

~Best for family visits and couples .

The Bads -

X Food quality is not so good only limited things are there in the menu.

X There are only 2 or 3 people in the kitchen so they take much time to serve you.

X If you're going there with your friend then this cottage is not a happening place for you.

In short it was a very good experience to stay there . My advice is first you go there and visit and after viewing the location and rooms of this hotel your heart won't allow you to step outta hotel :)

Room Tip: Go for river facing rooms or rooms on first and 2nd floor . They are best and affordable ones and ar...

We were into Divine Ganga Resort from April 11th to 13th, 2013. It was an amazing experiance staying out there. The staffs are really nice and friendly. The owner Vivek Nanda is really taking care of the guest. We like the choices of food available at the cottage.....specially customised non spicy food for our 4 year old son. If you are looking for a nice cosy stay with personal touch and homely environment......this is the place to be in Rishikesh.

Room Tip: Go for Ganga view rooms

My parents went there last year and loved the stay. The cleanliness, rooms (especially the Ganga View Room), location, food, staff nature..everything was top notch. They loved their stay so much that they are again visiting this place in the coming week. Going by their review, it should be rated as a top notch property with a must visit....

Tip: Ganga View Room is must, though a little small in size but worth it..
