“Great Staff, Great Location”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

I spent a month at the Divine Ganga Cottage in May-June 2012. The entire staff was welcoming and very helpful. Gautami and Pandeyji make a great team managing the day to day logistics of the hotel. The owners Seema and Vivek were great. The staff helped me find my way around. The hotel itself is in a great location, just close enough to the Laxman-Jhula bridge to walk there in 5 to 10 min. but far enough away from traffic and noise to relax. The food in the hotel’s rooftop restaurant was great. The views of the river Ganga are wonderful. Overall I had a great stay and plan to return.

We visited Divine Ganga Cottage while coimg back from Haridwar and stayed there for a Night. The location is incredible and so are the views. The restaurant is also extremely well situated on top and one gets an excellent view of the the mountains and greenery around.Tthough I didn’t get much variety of food & available service was not upto my taste buds. But I have enjoyed this beautifully landscaped property . Rooms were beautifully done up with excellent view from the balcony, since we have stayed at Ganga view room.

The staff was prompt and courteous which made us feel at home. Rishikesh itself is beautiful location with an awesome view of Ganga .This resort was pretty closer to Ram & Laxman Jhoola. We really love this place and keen to spend some more days in future.

We stayed in Divine Ganga Cottage for three nights -and had a great stay! This hotel is most probably the best value for money in Rishikesh. We stayed in a deluxe room which was recently fully renovated with good taste. The room and the bathroom were clean and modern with all the amenities you need. The bed was a bit hard to my taste but of course that's just my own opinion.
The hotel has a very nice rooftop restaurant with a great view. We stayed on a lower floor but that also had a nice sitting area outside the room. The hotel is well maintained and comfy with a lot of flower pots, a swing etc.
The lady manager was really hospitable and highly professional. She even managed to book us a last minute river rafting when everything was fully-booked (it was Easter). All staff members may not be the sharpest knives in the set but they also tried their level best to make our stay comfortable.
The location of Divine Ganga Cottage is definitely one of the best in Rishikesh. You are five minutes walk away from Lakshman Jhula bridge but still far enough from ever lasting honking and madness. One big plus is also that the hotel has a large parking lot for the guests... Once you've passed the driving test on their scarily narrow entrance road... ;)

This place has a lot of potential, good location, nice building but the room was dreadful. The bathroom was filthy and when we asked the staff to clean it they did a cursory mop of the floor. The sink looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months and there were cockroaches.

I can put up with lousy hotels, but then I expect the price to reflect that.

Staff at the divine ganga cottage: clean up your act! This place has a lot of potential but needs a lick of paint, clean sheets and a thorough scrub!

Dear Guest,
We are extremely sorry that you had a bad experience regarding hygiene at our property...It is very upsetting and embarasing that Our staff was careless in such an important matter..
I will definately take up the issue with the housekeeping manager so such a grave mistake is not repeated again..
