Divine Ganga Cottage is just off the main LaxmanJhoola road (you may need to walk the 150 meters as the road is small and cut up) but the Guesthouse is set up very nicely with great view of the Ganges and the hilltops surrounding the river. We got a nice view on the 2nd Floor and there is also a rooftop restaurant with has great views as well in it's open area. We found the staff friendly and helpful and there was lots of hot water as well as strong wifi connection in the room and a flat screen TV. The room was very comfortable and included a kettle and some tea bags and sugar and powdered creamer so we could make our own tea in the morning. The restaurant is very well priced and we ate one dinner, one lunch and 2 breakfasts and the 2 gentleman who run it were always busy serving in-room dining as well as room service throughout the day and they always had a smile for everyone. The meals were good from the lassi to the curries to the pizza and pancake. They also had good milk coffee (strong which is how I like it). Seema who checked us in, also let us use the room past check out on the last day so that we could take a shower after a morning hike. Everyone made us feel welcome and it was such a pleasure staying here.
It is between a 100-150 rupee private tuktuk ride from the bus station at Rishikesh to LaxmanJhoola or by shared tuktuk (30 rupees/person) and the guesthouse is a short walk(10 minutes) to LaxmanJhoola(bridge) and the shops and restaurants.
