The location is on a winding road just off the bazaar at mussorie. At some point on the winding road you wonder if you are lost and then suddenly you see the hotel signage. But that location becomes its strength if you like peace and quiet and you avoid all the crowds.The property is a little gem done up like an English manor.We loved it from the time we stepped into the drawing room.They have put up little quotations around the property that make you smile.The rooms are small but daintily done up. The food is good-mix of Indian and continental.Their restaurant Emilys on the first floor has a lovely sitout where you can have coffee and see the world go by.Staff are attentive.Highly recommended if you want to be off beaten track and chill out
- 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
