It was a beautiful experience staying here with family. All main attractions in Rishikesh are close by. For ganga ghat, it's just a 5 min walk. Good food, friendly staff and quiet surrounding make this hotel a great place to stay.

The hotel was at good location but they didn't gave us that room which has good view towards river Ganga . The price for the room is value for money. The bed wasn't comfortable as it was small for two adults and one kid. The food was awesome and wasn't costly. We have CP plan but the options in breakfast...
