The Guesthouse is very good value for money for the price. By the way better to book directly. We had called the hotel they said they were booked out. But cleartrip gave us the booking even after we called and asked them that according to the hotel it was full. But then they called at the last moment and said... More

Stay here only if you know the owner of this most unprofessional place! I'm writing this review today, the day we were pretty much turned out of this joke of a guest house. We, a party of 3, had booked a cottage more than 1 month in advance. And arrived today, after a hectic train ride from delhi. At the... More

A recommendation by a family freind turned out we landing at one of the best living locations in Mussorie away from the hustle bustle and yet not too far from where you'd once in while want to be in around restaurants and basics. A few heart pounding steps from doma's inn and Ruskin Bond's house, in the mid way of... More

We had a nice stay from 30th May to 4th June. Positives Good wood work and architecture. Excellent view of the landscape and overall Dehradun. We could view the moving clouds and experience the lightening as if it were just above us. It was scary for a moment. The hotel staff was good and hospitable. The cook made the food... More

I just walked into this place while looking for a place with good views. This is it. I stayed in a cottage overnight which was designed brilliantly. Major wooden work with very stylish bathroom. It has extra quilt and a room heater. The view from cottage was amazing giving full sight of the mountain and Dehradun Valley. It very well... More

Perfect place if on a holiday with friends. Decent accomodation rather quite comfortable. Great view of mountains and the valley with the twists n turns of the ganges. The terrace lawn is amazing for coffees/teas/whiskies!! Don't miss walking to 'Char Dukaan'; Omelettes, Pancakes and Maggies are a good option to kill. Walk up ahead to Deodar near Sisters market for... More

For the third time in four years we chose Ivy Bank Guest House to stay again. The same faces greeted us and we were pleasantly surprised to have a much more reliable internet access, rooms that have had facelifts and the lovely peaceful environment we always delight in. The hot water systems were a 100% improvement with only one hiccough... More
