“Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

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.

Room Tip: Ask for the Ganga View and pay a bit more for this view. Either on the second floor corner room or 3...

Our stay at the Divine Ganga Cottages was great! We were greeted upon arrival by the lovely manager who placed a tika on our foreheads and gave us a mala necklace to keep. Our room overlooked the Ganges and the view was spectacular. The restaurant food was excellant and service by the cooks was great! Such nice staff,everyone eager to make you feel welcome. We also took a yoga class which is offered twice a day. Very enjoyable and knowledgable teacher.

Room Tip: go for the upper level Ganges view rooms, slightly more expensive but worth it.

The Hotel was great, the rooms are superclean, the staff is very friendly, the receptionist (manager?) was extremely helpful. All in all this Hotel made our trip as comfortable as possible. The food in the restaurant is tasty and the cook is a very likeable person who always has a friendly smile. Next time again, if possible!

The view of the Ganges from the hotel is stunning. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The little restaurant at the top serves very good freshly cooked food. The location is excellent for walking into Rishikesh.

Room Tip: Rooms 124 and 125 are good.

An absolutely amazing location, even if it is a little off the beaten track. Sensational food, with great service through out. My only complaint would be that the blankets/doonas in the cupboard looked as though they hadn't been washed for quite a while.. Other than that the cleanliness was fairly good, and the rooms were basic yet had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.

We love it here! situated on hill top of himalayas you can see the entire ganges and beautiful view and especially having your breakfast in the open terrace with the wind blowing! Wow!!! i can go on about it. The rooms are very comfortable, feels like my home and all superbly well maintained! i never had once any complain or issue while staying. Even if there is slight inconvenience its immediately sorted out! I want to thank each and everyone personally for making it more special by their hospitality! indeed india is a place where they know how to treat there guest and this place really does it. Also a special thank you to cook, he cooks food with so much love and passion and so tasty!!!! love the breads! and everything, most of the time eat here itself! Thank divine ganga cottage for everything always! coming back for more always!!!
