This is a government owned facility right on the Ganga. Apart from the location and perhaps some of the staff who were very helpful, there is not much to write about. We stayed over for two days en route to a different location. The rates are not cheap-- approximately Rs. 6000 for 3 people. The ACs are not very efficient and does not work when the generator kicks in. There is a very friendly front office manager and a couple of very helpful people in the restaurant.
The beds are not bad with clean sheets and decent foam.
If you order food, request less oil and spice (unless you thrive on these). The restaurant itself is not very clean.
From this location, you have a very nice promenade leading to the city along the Ganga. If you are planning to come back later, request the staff to leave the gate leading to the promenade open. Otherwise, you will have to come through a play field next to a slum in the night. If you do have to do that, I would avoid grassy areas and tread on muddy field used by local children to play.
Considering there are not many other alternatives, this is a passable place if your intention is to stay over for a short time.
