The Glasshouse On The Ganges, Rishikesh
23 Mile Stone Rishikesh-Badrin PO & Village Gular-Dogi
Ranked 4 of 555 hotels in Rishikesh
Glasshouse on the Ganges is a quintessential Neemrana property- a `non-hotel\'. Delightfully relaxed, and with a charm that\'s just so. Not overwhelmingly classy hotel, but a very well-maintained, very smart place that blends East and West very well. Glasshouse lies just 23 km beyond Rishikesh, has its own little beach (we soaked our feet in freezing water while watching birds flitting about), and offers plenty of opportunity to chill- really! Great food (though the Indian grub is a few notches above the continental,), nice rooms, exquisite ambience.
We went to the Galsshouse in the last week of Oct 2011. From past reviews we were aware of the fact that it is one of the less architecturally interesting Neemrana properties, and were not expecting Luxury. The location is the best part about the glass house. We stayed in the cottages Uttara and Nadiya which are very close to the river...the river bank is a few steps below the balcony. The Ganga is very clean and fast flowing...very beautiful. View from the rooms was lovely. The rooms were clean but below average. The bathroom was quite spacious, but a bit stinky and not very clean. We had a separate open rain shower too. The WC leaked which made the whole bathroom wet. We spent most of our stay out of the rooms. As the property is in the middle of a jungle, the balcony had a lot of insects of all shapes and variety. It was interesting for the kids. Thankfully due to cool weather we did not find any lizards in our room or balcony, but found one in the main building which is warmer than the cottages. The main building has one main dining room facing the river with a lovely balcony and a private garden. This is one of the non heritage Neemrana properties.Food was good. Service is very friendly and prompt. Best to carry your own alcohol if you like as they do not offer any. Overall a great stay, if they can just maintain the rooms a bit better it could be a really beautiful place to stay. Room Tip: Go for the cottages Uttara and Nadiya as they have best location right on the river.
A divine experience on the banks of Ganges. Location of the hotel is excellent. You can have and experience of tent stay and also a stay in a well appointed rooms. Both the tent and the rooms were well equipped with the heaters and hot and cold running water. Food is very good with a taste of home made food. Staff is courteous and helpful. River rafting arranged thru the hotel was a lifetime experience. We could get a chance to do Ganga Aarti arranged by the Hotel. Winter evenings they also arranged for a camp fire in the garden with a seating arrangement. Since the hotel is far from the town it is very calm and serene away from the hustle of the city. Overall the stay at hotel was very good and we would definitely like to visit the place again. Since the hotel is about 25kms from Rishikesh you should either have a personal vehicle or the hotel can arrange for one to visit the town of Rishikesh.
