This place is located a little ahead of rishikesh main point. It is a dog friendly hotel, you can take your dogs at this hotel without any extra charges or any kind of hassle. The rooms are beautifully done and the location is to die for. The staffs were courteous and the food was divine. Cant wait to stay at this hotel the next time I am on a visit to rishikesh.

Room tip: best view dog friendly good food

Thank you Srishti! Yes indeed, Bull Kumar often calls Bull's Retreat his home in the mountains - so you got that spot on! Do visit us again soon.

Regards,

Akshay

This was an excellent stay! The history behind Bulls retreat...Col. "Bull" Kumar's expeditions & siachen reconnaissance was absolutely mind boggling to read & view at his museum on the 1st floor.

The service, comfort in the rooms, food, bonfire and trampoline were amazing! A must stay & getaway from Delhi

When we reached at 8p.m., the courteous staffs were a calming effect to the tired souls! Amazing hospitality and personal care! The homely food for dinner and breakfast, the ever smiling staffs, we could not have asked for more. The early morning treks to the river banks, the supply of countless cups of tea, the evening bonfire, the snacks and the bonhomie among the guests made us a large family. The well stocked books were a delight to enjoy the lazy mornings in hammocks with the sun playing hide and seek through the well groomed trees. Children had a gala time with the in-house activities and the Museum. Felt like we were at home! Kudos to the amazing management team where retaining people (am talking of the Kashmiri origin Cook cum guide for treks) for 20 years is not everyone's cup of tea in this industry! Thank you! Will join you guys for the trekking soon!

Room tip: The resort has enough not to stay tucked in rooms! Enjoy its Hospitality!

The facilities here are excellent for kids (lovely garden, trampoline, rock climbing on building wall, even mini a zip line!). The staff are really lovely and so helpful. The food (Indian) was delicious. The rooms are spread out providing privacy to all. The property is just off the main road so it's not as quiet as would be closer to the river, but we spent our day next to the river by walking 10 mins on the road and then turning down the path to the banks, where we had a large beach to ourselves.

Room tip: Our room was a bit dark/ low on sunlight, so perhaps ask for a sunny room
