I had heard a lot of good things about this guest house in Rishikesh from my parents...so finally we checked in last week...from the entry the guest house is a disaster, but the front boasts of a magnificent garden and a brilliant view of the ganges. Friendly staff,but beware of mantri ji's no nonsense talk. Excellent traditional marwari food...not something...

The rooms are with basic furnishings. Cleanliness is ok. The dining hall can be called make shift. Food served is home like. Mostly fixed menu thali is available in lunch and dinner, paranthas or puris in breakfast. Overall the place can be called ordinary. But I will still recommend it for its strategic location on the bank of Ganges and...

We were in haridwar and decided to go to rishikesh and have received a reference from known locals about this place. We could manage to get family rooms for a night at this property. The place was totally packed with families and visitors from everywhere. The easiest way to reach there is from Cheela road. This is a road which...

An ideal location close to Rishikesh and on the banks of Ganges for a short stay. It's the location that makes the Guest House unique far away from the din and bustle. Rooms are basic with air-conditioner and attached bath. Reasonably clean and food served in the dining room is also simple vegetarian affair. Ample parking place within the property.However,...

The accommodation is quite basic, though neat and clean and the rooms are air- conditioned. Please do not expect any luxury as such - we only wish that the toilet fittings were in a better shape. Now, the positives: it is easy on the pocket. It is right on the bank of the Ganges: in fact, DO NOT miss the...

Stayed here with family during my visit. The place is nice and quiet and available through reference only. If you are a proper vegetarian, looking to enjoy rishikesh peacefully in a laid back manner, then this is a decent place. The highlight for me was the homely food, which was great to have on a holiday. Nice experience overall but...
