Rokeby Manor! From Walter Scott to Landour property, a Boutique hotel. Only one of its kind we think. Very much expensive yet beautiful as a gem inside a casket! One has to stay here for two or more days to understand the magic in the air of Landour. And staying at Rokeby makes the feeling very special. We went there as a honeymoon couple and stayed at Rhododendron Suite, a perfect fantasy-maker for anyone’s first trip together. The stay, the food the service and the experience- all are memorable, with a coldness of behaviour from the employees. They are quite professional and corporate; they are apt and smart but somewhere the warmth was missing, as we found at Padmini Nivas in Mussoorie just before the Rokeby-days. But one thing we liked here, the very special and beautiful CORNER SHOP, where one can easily get exotic handicrafts of Uttarakhand. So ultimately Rokeby lefts a R-O-C-K-I-N-G impression on its presentability to the clientele. That’s all.
- 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
