    Absolutely cannot recommend ”
    This was the noisiest most uncomfortable place.. previous reviews totally misled me. I was here to relax for 7 nights.. my 1st room had no privacy.. my 2 was underneath the kitchen so really noisy with kitchen activities chairs scraping until after 12 they moved me...3rd room was under the restaurant so same noisy chairs from above. As well as this there was drilling all day and night which no one else seemed to hear but me. I had breakfast one day but found nothing appetising..had an expensive smoothie and espresso which were extre.. the staff did try and make it better they see I was exhausted from being unable to relax and rest from the noise. The manager offered me a free massage which was ok. However I do need to mention a really unpleasant pushy man who seemed to running the spa.. welll there was a dark hot room with a bed.. he claimed to be a specialist.. the free massage was ok.. but the treat was a total joke. He used google to show the therapist what to do.. a scam AVOID

    Highly recommend”
    Beautiful management & staff. Great location, service, value. Rooms have everything you need, are above average, and also with a little charm. Just below the hotel is a restaurant which funds the local school, they grow all their own organics, sociable & great ambience. And the food is astoundingly good. The best salad I've ever had - no lie. I had a first class massage here. The only down side is that the hotel arranged an onsight Ayervedic consultation, and the Doctor was very preoccupied throughout. And he has failed to send me my written prescription. But that's no direct fault of the hotel. Ultimately, it is the people who run and work at Divine, who are just that...Divine.

    Nice hotel, good location, Helpful staff.”
    A nice hotel located in an area known as Tapovan. The hotel has beautiful views of the river Ganga. The hotel area is very quiet but only a 10min walk to the Lakshman Jula bridge. The staff is very helpfull and you feel safe there.

    Decent but expensive for the rate charged”
    Very basic rooms - i stayed in a standard room for 2 nights. The only saving grace is Ganga view from terrace. Seems they are short staffed. Day time Reception cannot handle queries well which changes with the person who takes over reception post evening as he is better in answering queries. This could have been a better place with a lower price as there are better places available in the same price range. Approaching here demands walking the last mile unless you want to spend heftily on autos-taxis. The ongoing construction is a nuisance but thats not under their control so i would not downscore them on the construction related disturbance.

    Great location with lovely views of the Ganga, slightly away from the busy part of town. However, the hotel is constructing a whole new block so right now many rooms do not have a view and the construction noise is annoying. New rooms will have private balconies and views. Staff too preoccupied, presumably with construction, to be helpful. Food in restaurant OK but small space and no view. None of the rooms look like the pictures on Agoda. Cockroaches in room. I booked a Ganga view room but was given one without view - they did move me for the second night. Taxi to airport grossly overpriced - hire one from the taxi stand instead.

    Still my favorite place in Tappovan!”
    This lovely gem is tucked away from the intensity of Laxman Jhula and Tappovan but is still in the middle of everything. I was happy to see that the Divine Ganga Cottages is still wonderful and getting better with every visit. They are accommodating and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you have a DIVINE stay. The rooms are just right, the beds comfortable, and the staff is so kind.

    Worst hotel I've ever stayed”
    My delux room was located basement next to staff rooms. They started to talk loudly early morning. When I opened window in the morning, some staff stared at me. Terrible manner! There are so many unnecessary hotel staff hanging around the hotel all the time. They look badly educated and cannot distinguish staffs or just stranger. Room was mentioned river view but actually not, but construction view?! Next to the building, there's some building under construction and from the roof, water is always dropping. I cannot believe this hotel has such a good review. I was totally deceived by that wrong information.

    The locationnof thei hotelnis noce, view also. Be cateful in ehat you expect, as toh get a tun down hotel which is pretty unclean and not well kept. Even if ordered high floor and river view, we were put to basement with no view and ehen transfered to higher floor, we had to pay upgrade fee. The hotel is quite noisy and quite dirty (walls, floor, nedsherts dirty and pillows unbrlieveably dirty and smelly) so that we had to leave after one night...

    Beautiful space with a lovely staff!”
    I stayed in the Diving Ganga Cottage for three nights with a friend of mine. We had a view of the Ganga (highly recommended), and it was so beautiful. The rooms aren't anything special, but they're clean and keep the bugs away... The view was what did it for me though! We had two huge windows overlooking the river - it was a very peaceful way to wake up :) The staff is super friendly and helpful! They personally took my friend to get her money exchanged, and every time we needed something, they happily took care of it very quickly. The restaurant was good! I only ate Indian food there and was satisfied with it. One negative - I got a massage from someone they called up... The masseuse had a couple long nails and left me pretty scratched up on my back :( Otherwise, it was a wonderful stay, and I'd go back again!

    Divine Ganga Cottage: a great choice!”
    Location, comfort, staff
    We loved the Divine Ganaga Cottage! It's location is awesome - tucked away but still close to everything. The views are beautiful; the rooms are comfortable; and the staff is just terrific. We were there in a bit of a quiet week so the kitchen was out of many of the menu options, but the meals we ate there were so good. In terms of being helpful to us for our stay overall, they were a terrific resource for things to do - even in neighboring Haridwar. They helped us hire a car and driver and made sure he understood exactly what we canted to see and experience. They also made sure everything in the hotel was just to our liking. The room was very nice and clean and decorated beautifully. If you are going to Laxman Jhula, Ram Jhula, or Tapovan, this is a great place and a good value.

    Location, room, and staff
    Its set back from the main town, which is good, simce there are thousands pf cars, buses, and motorcycles on the roads. You can sit back and enjoy the quiet, from the roof cafe, enjoying the view from the balcony of the ganges. There are a lot of yoga and related activities which you can enjoy(I didn't), and massages. My only gripe is that the pictures on agoda for the standard room don't show that the room is actually quite small. However, for the price which I got it, it was adequate, and unfortunately the bigger rooms were all occupied. WOuld definitely go back here.
