The location is great and view from the hotel is awesome.Just crossing the hotel lawn/boundary you will reach the ganga. Food is good and service is also good.People are very courteous and helpful.But the property is not well maintained.Big rooms but walls are damp and the room are old and not very clean.

First things first,location of this property is unbeatable, period.

Right on the the quieter part of banks of Ganges this hotel is best if you just want to relax and de-stress. Food is good, service is satisfactory but amenities in the rooms can be better.

There was no foot-mat in the room, something very elementary, this led to dirty floors especially around bathroom area. Also glaring was the lack of proper double bed, what we got was two single beds plonked together. Needless to say this led to quite uncomfortable sleeping experience.

What worked in my favor was that we did not stay in the rooms for much long, and there was this balcony and lawn with its awesome views and sounds to compensate.

Recommended only for short stays!

Room Tip: Opt for an A/C room on the 2nd floor..cheers

This is perhaps the only place in Haridwar to stay, which shall invite you to Haridwar more often than not. It has its own, clean, safe, uncrowded ghat besides the Ganga river where you can walk down with children & ladies and come back to your room dripping for a change. It has a spacious restaurant within its complex which serves sumptuous meals. Parking is aplenty, rooms are spacious and the complex has a lawn too inside. Har- ki- Pauri and the markets are a bit far, however, can be reached walking along the Ganga. At night one can view the lights of Chandi Devi Mandir from the hotel's terrace apart from the wide sky overhead.

Room Tip: Have rooms booked in advance to avoid disappoint and prefer AC rooms.

Great location on the banks of the ganga ghats. very quiet and peaceful. far from main market. Have to take auto. had booked standard room via makemytrip as they had a good deal then but that room was really bad so paid extra and went it for superior room which was decent.
hotel breakfast and service was ok. stayed only 1 night. not close to station.

Room Tip: ground floor facing the ghats so you can sit in the lawns and have chai..

Very Good hotel. location of the hotel is very good. Food is also very homely. You can walk upto Har Ki Pouri along with Ganga From hotel pathway. You can take a dip in Ganga with your family without any concern. Very clean Ghats.

Room Tip: take room which are facing Ganga and are 1 or 2 floor.

The hotel is on the opposite side of the river- quite near from the city centre- yet in a very peaceful locality. On one side you can see the Shibalik hills and the Ganga on the other side.The rooms are large and so is the toilet. The cleanliness could have been better. The hotel has is own banks and "Ghat" , It is very pleasant to sit on the lawn in the evening. The approach road needs resurfacing.

Room Tip: A non A/C room on the first floor extreme end would provide view of Ganga from the room

I went with my wife and 2 kids( under 4 yrs) and stayed there for 3 nights. Being a govt property, I was apprehensive about the service quality. I must say that it was a pleasant experience staying there. The hotel's biggest advantage is the location. It is located on ganga bank, just 1.5km away from the main city. The AC rooms are spacious and comfortable. I could easily fit an additional bed. Lastly, the staff is very niceand willing to go out of way to help.
