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.
