We made a short trip to Dehradun and Mussoorie on 21st December and after spending 1 night in Dehradun , planned to stay in Mussoorie next day. I had heard a lot about Rokeby Manor in Landor and decided to visit the place for lunch . It was a fabulous day with bright sun shine and driving towards Landor was a majestic experience . We had a fantastic view of snow peaks of Dauladhar range , pine trees and so much peace ! Upon reaching Landor , decided to walk around a bit to build up the appetite and made a short trip to famous Prakash store to do a little shopping for homemade jams and marmalades . Lunch at Rokeby Manor turned out to ne highlight of the trip. Everything about the hotel was exciting and welcoming. Christmas decoartions done up in a creative way inside the hotel at various places added to the festive spirit. Took a table on the outside terrace and enjoyed the great views , crisp cold weather and delicious food. Came back with a satisfied feeling and in my next trip to Mussoorie , would love to spend 1 night at this hotel . Kudos to the management and entire team.
- 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
