A very well and tastefully renovated hotel in a very quiet part of Mussourie. Access roads all over the town are very narrow and it took us considerable time to reach the hotel, leaving us to wonder if we had chosen the right location. But, once we settled in to the hotel, we stayed there and walked around the area for the rest of the 3 days. Food was good and decently priced. Service was exceptional; in general, staff went out of their way to make the stay special. Very well done renovation; The entire hotel has retained the old world charm. Special mention of the manager (Nicholas Rodricks). I forgot my camera lens in the room and did not realize even after my return home. He contacted me and arranged to courier the lens. Exceptional. Thank you.
- 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
