“Surprise Package”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

We zeroed in on Ganga Sadan post going through a number of hotel reviews on Tripadvisor as we wanted a hotel on the banks of the Ganga. We were really apprehensive as this was not a known property. We reached Haridwar from Mussourie and took a long time to find the hotel.

The hotel is situated in between 2-3 shabby buildings and there is no car parking or access road. The hotel GM sent a bellboy to carry our luggage and even after reading the reviews we were rethinking our decision to check in. However, the minute we entered the hotel all our anxieties were put to rest. We were welcomed with a traditional thali and tikka. Our room was quite spacious with a beautiful view of the river Ganga. The welcome drinks were sent to us immediately along with a fruit basket. The room had all modern amenities and the bathroom was clean and hygienic.

We were escorted for the evening aarti by the hotel staff and they took us to a maharaj who performed puja for us before the aarti. The Ganga aarti was something that we will never forget. The hotel has a private deck that accesses the river and hence one can bathe in privacy.

We had dinner in the hotel itself and the food was really good. The chef interacted with us and customised our order as well. The portions were large as compared to other restaurants. The breakfast the next day was also wholesome.

Overall the hotel exceeded our expectations and our compliments to Mr Jarnail Singh and his team.

Room Tip: Ganga facing rooms. Beware of monkeys and hence lock the windows.

A very good hotel with decent food and view. when we started toward hotel after reaching haridwar, crossed a very narrow street and thought was , did mistake boss. But when inside hotel, it was good. We had dinner and breakfast there and both were good. Specially they have good terrace with ganga view, which was awesome. I would say value to money.

Room Tip: Rooms with ganga view is good.

The hotel is located in a obscure location, one has to enter small lanes to get to the hotel which pretty much doesn't give a good first impression. However, once you go inside the hotel, it's not too bad. It's situated right at the banks of Ganges so you have a good view of the majestic river from your room. The room was clean, with a flat screen and pretty comfortable beds. They provided portable heaters since we went during winter. We had some issue with hot water and they brought down a pail of hot water for us to bathe! I guess the hot water in the hotel had a delayed reaction cos it was only working after some time. We endured a long drive and just wanted to take a good shower n rest. The food was good, the staff were polite and courteous. It was a little bit on a pricey side considering it does not look anything more than a 3 star hotel!

We found this hotel to be truly terrible. While the staff were courteous, we had a number of problems that made our stay very bad indeed:
- geysers appeared to be switched off during the day, so hot water was available only in the mornings& evening
- the toilet was dripping all night and requests to fix it led to some fiddling by a "manager' with no improvement
- we were charged for childrens' beds though none were provided for our kids
- only one waiter was available at meal times, so service was extremely slow
- there is a general sense of neglect to the hotel, which seems to be living off it's reputation from better times.

We stayed for possibly the shortest time there, but the room, food and hospitality were excellent. The hotel was probably an old haveli on the banks of the Ganga. Difficult to imagine how one would have made it the way we see it today.
Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. we had decided to check-out early in the morning, they helped us with some sandwiches as the breakfast was not ready by then.
The tariff is slightly on the higher side and so is the food ( a single roti costed INR 45/-), but i really did not mind paying for it.

Room Tip: All rooms face the Ganga, so there is not much of choice
