“Good Location, Excellent Food and Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

I visited Haridwar on a family trip in Aug'14. We took two rooms in this hotel and reservation and check-in was pretty smooth.

The Hotel is situated strategically overlooking the holy rivver Ganges. It is the first building visible if you come from Parking side. The Hotel was about 1 - 1.5 Km from the railway station but the journey was smooth as hotel had sent two provate rickshaws to pick us from the railway sttaion.

All rooms are almost similar. They are clean and well maintained. service is attentive and polite. I could not find any fault with the place except that it is a bit expensive compared to nearby hotels.

One thing that deserves special mention is the food that you get in this hotel - it is the best hotel food that you can get in Haridwar. Don't miss it out.

Room Tip: Look for a room on second floor. Though none of the rooms face Ganges but all rooms open towards the...

stayed for a few nights, the rooms are very nice, the service is very good and the restaurant is good. the rooms are not really river view, they are on a corridor with chairs that has a view. as all guest pass this corridor your curtains stay closed and you are in a a dark but very nice room. sure there are cheaper places but here you get what you pay for.

My family and I, a threesome , stayed at Ganga Lahari in November 2013. I have been meaning to review on Tripadvisor since then...somehow never found the perfect moment...so here goes..better late than never!. This hotel is one of the nicest experiences we have had...and we do travel a fair amount. What's going for it 1) The Manager and the F& B head..seriously these guys are fully upto speed on hospitality and they manage the place very well. The Chef is awesome and very personally attentive.... 2) The location..on the banks of the awesome Ganga and a short walk from the Pooja Ghat. 3) The food...unique and homely style not like a standard hotel where all dishes taste the same... we had 6 meals and never tired of the food..pure veg. being a holy town..but great taste nevertheless 4) A cute evening live act was an accomplished Hindustani Classical singer who performs inside the Haveli and the sonorous voice and tabla...keep ringing all around. The only minus point was that our lavish room stepped out onto a wide verandha...which we were unable to use on account of a few stray langoors (monkeys) who were noisy and a bit scary. All in all a wonderful, laid back and archaic hotel with all modern amenities including a nice spa.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the almighty Ganga!

It is on the banks of Ganga. You have to leave the car on the opposite side and walk/take a rickshaw to the other side of Ganga to reach your hotel which is just a minute's ride or a 2 min walk if you less luggage to carry. The rooms, corridors and the restaurant area are all very clean and well maintained with good odour. We had a deluxe(king) room and it is very spacious with a bedroom, living with all amenities and very hot water throughout out the stay. The food needs a special mention and hats off to those who serve and cook. They are very obedient , patient and meticulously served hot food with all possible Indian breads and kingsize buffet breakfast and lunch/dinner thali. Food is not very spicy but tasted very nice and is freshly made( only vegetarian food is served- so all the more better). Arrangements to see Ganga arati will be made if asked at the desk and it is convenient if you r a first timer as they take you to sit in a place where you get the best view of the arati proceedings. It is central place for everything- manasa Devi temple, Chandi temple, shopping, Har ki pouri etc. overall the best experience compared to rishikesh accommodation and food.

Room Tip: There are just 20 rooms all facing the Ganga river. You can choose the king size one if your budget...

Hello !! This is Chinmoy Rajpal. My wife and me travelled to Haridwar from Chennai via Prayag for a religious trip during Feb 2013 and after a lot of search online we came across Ganga Lahari. Well, we were happy that we landed at this place because everything about the hotel is fantastic - right from the staff, room, food, location (right next to Ma Ganga), Har-ki-Paudi, accessibility to conveyance.

The best part is the helpfulness & courteousness of the staff (Mohit, Ankit, and all others, including the chef Raja). God bless them.

Overall, it was a very beautiful and pleasant stay and I highly recommend this hotel to all families travelling to Haridwar and beyond.

There are dime a dozen hotels in Haridwar but this one takes the cake due to its proximity to the Ganga. Here one can experience the hustle bustle of the market right outside its door and can also walk along the banks for its divine experience. The Har ki Pauri where the divine Prayer(Arti) happens is also a stone throw away.

The staff is courteous however do tend to take its time to attend to service. There is a small vegetarian restaurant with the Indian theme. The food tastes good & has variety.

The layout of the room and the décor was neat and clean. There are chairs in the corridor for guests to sit and watch the Ganga within the vicinity of the Hotel.

Overall a Good hotel to stay barring the Parking which one has to park opposite the banks of the River.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
