Blessed Cottage
Ranked #34 of 54 Hotels in Rishikesh
Reviewed 3 December 2012

The hotel is very close to Lakshman Jhula. The ambience and the locations is extremely good. The people at the reception are humble and responsible. They are not trained and certified but they serve better. They are available any time. The rooms are good (Value for money). On the whole it is a nice place to stay. Also, it is a great value for money.

We stayed in the AC cottage but it is not a cottage exactly ,instead it is a room with ceiling in shape of cottage.Outer area of the place is really beautiful and it is a nice place to stay in pleasant weather .We went there in June and their AC s where really in effective .Staff was helpful.Their restaurant is OK type but food is bit overpriced according to the quantity and quality of the food .We paid 60 Rs for just 3 cups of tea .This place is little away from main market and one has to walk a bit in order to reach the main area.

This is by far the best hotel in Rishikesh in terms of ambience and location. But a lot was left to be desired in terms of cleanliness and maintenance. The bedsheet had numerous tiny holes (my 10 month old baby found them really amusing). The bathroom had unidentified organic matter (maybe left over by the guests preceeding us). The room reeked of a damp marshy odour and had to be personally attended to. On the brighter side, the hotel is gorgeous (once you are out of your room), peacefull and ideally located just outside the freaked-out town. It even has a gushing stream running adjacent to it (although! The silly guests regularly dump garbage in it)...

Overall! Not the place for the weak at heart.

We stayed one night in Rishikesh on our way to Badrinath. While our original plan was to stay on for an extra day, the lack of power back-up in the night drained us out. Given July, temps were soaring in Rishikesh, and the location of the cottages were close to the river (though there is no view). Due to this the were tons of insects and bugs in the room - due to no power supply through the entire night we actually had to pull the beds onto the cottage porch and sleep outdoors! Would advice all visitors to Rishikesh in the summers to check for power back-up before booking a place since this seems to happen regularly in this state

Situated 4km outside Rishikesh, the views were great, easily accessible to lakshman jhula and "bathing place" which was really clean (green ganga) in comparison to Haridwar. Less beggars and great shopping in Rishikesh. A bit cold in December, the hotel was full and unprepared...with no extra blankets, only 1 double bed to accomodate 4 although prior arrangments were made and rooms weren't cleaned daily. It requires a bit of TLC but this hotel has potential. Food service was great, freshly prepared and on time, hotwater, internet across the road. If you are not planning on staying in your room all day then this ok for the price charged....

We were mid-range travelers and booking hotels in advance. This place looked nice from the internet and fit into our price range. When we got to RIshikesh we found that this hotel was extremely overpriced for the market. We paid nearly double what we should have and did not receive a Deluxe room (there are no differences in the rooms.) Service was below expectations. It took two days to get two towels for the room. No help and unfriendly staff. Dirty rooms. The outside and the views are nice and the location is quiet, but other than that, there was nothing redeeming about our experience. We felt deceived.

located at the other end of rishikesh , rooms are clean and well maintained. Food quality is good and timely room service is available.
The view from every room is awesome.
All in all, nice play to drop in.
