My husband and I had traveled from the US to Delhi then over to Rishikesh. The staff was extraordinarily helpful both before our arrival and during our trip. The restaurant in the hotel is fantastic (try the Paneer Tikka, it's amazing!). We loved everything. We stayed in room 304 which had an amazing view. The free yoga class overlooking the Ganges was a once in a lifetime experience as well.
Definitely book your stay at this hotel. You will not regret it
We can see ourselves going back to Rishikesh just to relax at this property.
Staff is exceptionally caring and welcoming. The food and restaurant experience was great. They have lovely roof top yoga/meditation hall and a terrace garden facing the river to relax on. Bonus - the property backs to Asthapath - A 6 Km walking and running track along the Ganges.
I initially chose this hotel because of the location.My sister and I visited @ end of January
The facilities offered by the hotel are superb, Activities to enhance you stay include morning yoga, guided walks, meditation, Ganga Aarti etc
Hotel is ideally located at the bank of River Ganges.The view from the holy water restaurant is fabulous.
The yoga and meditation is beautiful.
Our sincere heartfelt thanks to the entire staff at Ganga Kinare for extending such a warm service, With their always-ready-to-help, friendly attitude, the overall experience was even more pleasurable.
A special mention to reception staff Ravinder Kumar and Kuldeep Rawat who ensured our stay was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Rooms were a decent size and comfortable. The artwork in each room added an extra ambiance. Restaurant serves excellent vegetarian meals. Buffet breakfast was excellent, Live kitchen added a special little touch.
Thank you Ganga Kinare. I'm already looking forward to visiting again.
We were looking for a quiet couple vocation for relaxation. Zeroed in on GANGA KINARE, basis reviews at Trepadvisor. Booked a Super Deluxe room for 4 nights from 20th Jan. Drove down from New Delhi in own car with fair expectations. What we got at this charming little place far far exceeded our expectations. This place really is a true gem and a surprise packet on the banks of GANGA, really and actually on the river bank, overlooking a hill range.
A very welcoming reception at check in, within an impressive lounge, by Mr Ravinder Kumar and Ms Priyanka, coupled with an invigorating drink (of course non alcoholic) was so sublime. After a short round of the property, we were escorted to our room by Ms Priyanka. The moment certains were drawn apart we were completely floored. The view that hit us was truly awesome, majestic Ganga flowing alongside the property and green lush forest on the foot of the hills on the other side, completed the settings. There were more surprises in store: a well maintained wide 2 km walk way upto Trivvni Ghaat alongside the flowing Ganga, a private, yes a private Ghaat with a underpass directly from the back lawns to the river for a holy dip with towels available and a guard on duty, a temple on the lawns, a private Ganga Arrti every morning evening, Yoga and all, in a perfect settings, just perfected the picture. Well, we could go on lavishing praises. Sufficient to say we ended up extending our stay by two nights, invited a friend (couple) who drove down from Delhi and joined us in this perfect experience. To say that they were also amazed by the location and what this hotel and its people offered, will be an understatement.
In order to be more forthright we would like to assign our own rating to Ganga Kinare on a scale of 10.
LOCATION : 10/10 : A little far from madding around in magnificent settings. Well located to make short day trips to places of interest like Haridwar, Shivpuri Rajaji Park and many more.
ROOM : 9/10 : View Matchless Quite large with fair sized bath room, with all attendant amenities and free WIFI too which really works.
(lighting in rooms & bathrooms could do well with more enhancement & better placement)
DINING & FOOD : 10/10 : A very large Dining hall, with a clear view of the Ganga and the forests & the hills from all sides. Daily Buffet breakfast and occasional Dinner Buffet offering a large spread of all kinds of sumptuous food items, all vegetarian (law does not permit non-veg), all clean & fresh, staff present outdoing each other with politeness, courtesy and attention.
CLEANNESS : 10/10 : Just perfect

Mr Ravinder Kumar, Ms Priyanka, Mr Kuldeep Rawat always being backwards smilingly trying to make your stay most comfortable and worth remembering.
