We absolutely loved Rokeby Manor. We didn't stay there but wish we had. The whole ambiance is cozy and has an old world charm of a British country side home. The rooms look so tempting to stay (have a look even if you don't stay). Must eat at Emily's restaurant and of course take the seat outdoors regardless of the weather. The food is great and the view is amazing.
Rokeby is peaceful and serene and a MUST visit. The tea garden and outdoor seating on the ground floor are a great place to hang, or you can play the addictive board games in the lobby area.
- 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
