Reviewed 28 June 2012

Me and my wife stayed in this hotel for a day. We were really surprised to see lots of dust in our room, lots of Makdi's, Chipkali's and different kind of instincts but this is not over another problem is we have called lots of time from day to the evening to Room Service as well as House Keeping but no body attends the call. The AGM of this hotel and his team was really hopless and attitude was really poor. But still problems is not ended here the another problem is food that was really poor. The over all my view is it's not a hotel of the said category it's a Dharamshala. I think Dharamshala is much better.

Room Tip: They don't have any good room.

This is a government owned facility right on the Ganga. Apart from the location and perhaps some of the staff who were very helpful, there is not much to write about. We stayed over for two days en route to a different location. The rates are not cheap-- approximately Rs. 6000 for 3 people. The ACs are not very efficient and does not work when the generator kicks in. There is a very friendly front office manager and a couple of very helpful people in the restaurant.

The beds are not bad with clean sheets and decent foam.

If you order food, request less oil and spice (unless you thrive on these). The restaurant itself is not very clean.

From this location, you have a very nice promenade leading to the city along the Ganga. If you are planning to come back later, request the staff to leave the gate leading to the promenade open. Otherwise, you will have to come through a play field next to a slum in the night. If you do have to do that, I would avoid grassy areas and tread on muddy field used by local children to play.

Considering there are not many other alternatives, this is a passable place if your intention is to stay over for a short time.

Room Tip: Ask for an A/C room with a view of the Ganga

Were shifted to Ganga Beach (Where's the beach?) because our regular place had unexpectedly shut down. We had booked two rooms for two nights over a busy Jun weekend and unfortunately there were few alternatives in town. Turned out that we were allotted rooms which had a flight of about a 100 stairs. We had kids (ages ranging from 3 years - 5 years) and mother (> 65 years), and they just couldnt manage it. Any way, once we reached, we were in for a shock. The rooms were pathetic, paint peeling off from the walls, no fridge in one of the rooms, ac didnt work in one, dirty sheets, limp towels. When we represented to the reception, they just shrugged and said nothing. Room service and House keeping was appalling. In service menu was prohibitively costly. The hotel has a swimming 'pond' (can't call it a pool), but seeing the cleanliness of the rooms, we didnt have the heart to venture in. In fact, the walk way outside the resurant and kitchen has turned black with grime...Its quite amazing to see it. The place has no beach, or atleast I couldnt find one. The property is isolated and its a good 20-25 min uphill walk to the other places or Laxman Jhula area, from where you can source basic neccessities. Ganga Beach needs to be cleaned everyday for an year, before it is fit for living in.

I checked in the hotel after comming down from Mussoorie. Actually was booked in some other hotel but at the last minute was shifted to Ganga Beach Resort. At the onset was happy to see the location, it is bang on the Ganga. But the reception attitude was poor. The allotment of room took more than 2 hours. The room was also on the top most storey and no lift. We had to climb up and down. It was tiring. The room service was good. The food was also Good. Initially I was booked for two nights but on the second day they refused the second night quoting reasons that the travel people had booked only for one night. I left in a bad taste.

I have being in rishikesh 3 times and stayed in 3 different properties, one of them the great ganga hotel.

Location: excellent, walking distance from everything. Just next to the river. If you are going for river rafting, they will drop you in the entrance of the hotel itself, from the river side. You can walk to the holy ceremony every day at 6 pm, and it will take you 10 min.

Hotel Grounds: Good, better than the Great Ganga Hotel.

Price: Around the same of the Great Ganga Hotel. 3,500 INR per night.

Rooms: Big, spacious. But the sheets of the bed seems to be dirty and the bathroom was clean enough even to say that it was acceptable.

For me, both hotels, are at a very similar standard. Probably, the great ganga with better hygienic standards.
