I was in Mussourie a couple of weeks ago and had the opportunity to visit a fantastic hotel property by the name of Rokeby Manor built in 1840 and today it is one of the landmarks of Landour. The property is situated near Lal Tibba, the highest point in Mussourie to the east of St. Paul's Church and the old... More

One of the great places to stay and also get get good food, away from the over influxed touristy town of Mussoorie, tucked away in Landour. Very carefully and beautifully crafted hotel, with a great selection in the menu while ever let you think of going out anywhere else for a meal, besides the view and serenity around. Great place...

We enjoyed our stay here and the staff were friendly, helpful and polite. This place has the quality and excellent service of a big hotel with the intimacy and friendliness of the small guest house.

There isn't a single aspect of Rokeby that I can fault. We ended up there after a disastrous stay at Devdar Woods, one of the foulest places I've ever encountered anywhere in the world. But Rokeby make up for that mistake in spades. It's an exquisitely restored property, done with charm, whimsy, intelligence and utter guest comfort in mind. The... More

Rokeby is one of the most unique hotels we have been to. It is an old colonial home and exactly like the pictures on their website. First the pluses: 1. Great service. 2.

Stayed in a rather small room with no pleasant view but some noise from the generator/ventilation. We would have expected some more comfort for the price. However, the staff was very professional and friendly. Also the restaurant has a cosy ambience and some great food. A good place to stay, in particular with some more luck regarding the room, but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rokeby was built in 1840 by Captain G.N. Cauthy and is one of the landmarks of Landour. The house and two acre estate are situated slightly above and to the east of St. Paul's Church and the old cantonment parade ground, which is now Char Dukan. Like many houses in Mussoorie, its name is taken from the writings of Sir Walter Scott, whose book-length poem describes heroic battles near the original Rokeby Castle in England. Methodist missionaries continued to operate the property as a guest house throughout the rest of the 20th century. Today, Rokeby has been carefully restored to its original glory. This heritage building is resplendent with character in its elaborate brick arches and niches, intricate stone walls, real wood floors and beams, and cosy fireplaces. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, the traditions of bygone years – where colonial officers, renegade soldiers of fortune and pious miss saibs lived under one roof – can still be felt. An air of mystery beckons visitors. ... more   less
