Ganga Beach Resort
Ranked #42 of 63 Hotels in Rishikesh
Reviewed 14 September 2013

The only positive thing about the hotel is its location. The area is peaceful and quiet and it is right on the banks of Ganga. Only the high-end rooms are well-maintained. The basic rooms are smelly because of water seepage. Staff is not very courteous. Dinner was included in our room stay and we were slightly late (9.30pm) in reaching the restaurant, so the waiter bluntly commented 'hum kab se aapka wait kar rahe hain, humein restaurant band karna hai!' Is this the way you talk to customers? We were staying in a suite but the was no wire mesh on one of the ventilators so our room was full of insects and mosquitoes. Swimming pool was dirty, full of floating insects and muddy water. To use the swimming pool you need to go down at least 2-3 floors and then climb back, no lift! Food is average, usual north indian stuff available. Please avoid this please if you are planning to there in monsoon/end of monsoon. I wouldn't call it a resort, except for the swimming pool there isn't much open space for kids. Kids would get completely bored.

Room Tip: Only the river facing rooms in the newly constructed wing (below the reception area) are fine.

The best thing about this resort is the view of River Ganga. Looking downward you can see people enjoying the river-rafting.
We came there with our corporate group for a conference. The hotel is a bit downside and almost every driver is scared to drive in downwards slope.
But once you get in, Your eyes can't get your eyes off from the mesmerizing beauty of the Ganga and the surrounding mountains.
The Conference gone good without any issue with the help of the staff. I specially thanks Mr. Rohit Negi (Sales) who was there with the staff leading from the front.
Room in which I stayed was quite spacious (Jacuzzi Room) with the best view of the Ganga. The food was good (in the restaurant).
The only issue there was the service. Orders were taken but not delivered until we remind them that somebody is still waiting for the delivery.
Apart from this everything was fine. Service need to be improved a lot. However we enjoyed the local sightseeing with river rafting, rock climbing & rappelling.
At night really enjoyed the DJ at terrace with coktail.
Overall A pleasant & memorable trip. I would recommend this resort for all kind of travelers.

Room Tip: Jacuzzi Room with Ganga View from the balcony

A very fantastic stay at GANGA BEACH RESORT RISHIKESH....very peaceful, calm.location...
It is always a risky option of booking hotel by just looking at pictures. But my experience with CGanga Beach Resort was really amazing. We (4 families) went to Rishikesh for 2 nights and stayed in this hotel. Every element of place and service was very good. The staff was so caring and service oriented that they do things before even someone ask them. The food quality was excellement, rooms was spacious, clean and Bathroom . All 4 kids in the group had enjoyed swimming pool . We got cake served by hotel on my wife birthday. In essence, we had very good time and hotel played a key role. thanks everyone for providing the level of service that everyone from kids to parents were happy!

very good property in rishikesh as murmuring and splash of waters of river soothes not only at dawn but at the dead of night,for a serene,spiritual stay over.no 705 suite is a marvellous home away from home,well equipped with jacuzzi and shower cubicle.beds ,mattresses,linen are equally good and the suite is equipped with 3 lcd tv ,3a/c's,fridge,hot kettle.only requirement is an induction cooker,for a complete 2bhk space.2 balconies are ample for viewing river and mountains landscape with deckchairs and even the windows of bathrooms offer un parallel view.nice comfortable place,only the restaurant service is not in quality equal to that of the hotels

Room Tip: river view rooms are very good for leisure and relaxing

Good place to stay peacefully. You can enjoy the peace, the atmosphere, Its your test HOW YOU MAINTAIN YOUR COOL. I THINK PEOPLE WHO LOOSE THEIR PATIENCE ARE LOOSER NOT THE GAINER. PEACE IS THE BIGGEST THING THAN YOUR MONEY. Don't demand too much, I saw people demand too much from the management, they want all the satisfaction for their ego, why they don't feel in contentment. GET BOOKED DIRECTLY FOR LUXURY EXECUTIVE ROOMS

Room Tip: Luxury Executive Rooms are really worth staying here, So close to the Ganga Maiya.

We booked 4 rooms for 2 nights at the so called "resort". When we checked-in, the rooms shown to us (in the old block) were hell-holes! Uncleaned, stinking and messy. We raised issue with the management who then offered us 2 rooms in the new block at the same price. Without any other options (as we have already paid advance), we took them. Then the nightmare started. The rooms were only a shade better then previous ones. But bathrooms were equally Dirty & Stinking. They do not have concept of service on their planet. We asked for water, which never arrived. For simple things such as Milk & Coffee (for which we were paying) we have to call Room Service & Front Desk 7-8 times. We were shuttled between both the numbers. Every time we have to walk up to Front Desk to get the order sorted out. The ordeal continued next day when nobody turned up for cleaning! We asked guys at reception hundreds of time, and then a small boy (we do have issues with child labour too) was sent who was class Xth student and have absolutely clueless about what to do. Again after 2 hrs of cajoling they sent couple of guys who went about the motions. Breakfast serve was cold and unappetizing (good for those who want to pursue dieting, since nothing is available near-by). Front desk staff is most unhelpful and constantly fail to understand simple requests, such as drinking water, extra pillow and so on. All in all, a horrible experience for us.
