Stayed in November 2013. Stayed for three nights. This was our third trip to the queen of hills " Mussoorie" and first at this property. The property is located away from the loud crowd of the city and yet is at a comfortable distance by car to the Mall road. The pick up and drop facility was prompt in the off season at least. Breakfast spread is limited and is average. Ala cart dinner is very good and one must try the Garlic Chicken Tikka and the Dal. The staff is very helpful and courteous. Even with we as the only guest on one of the nights they gave tandoori items for dinner. Rooms are neat and clean and the view (weather permitting) is nice. The deck next to the reception is a good place to relax. We stayed in the new block. Need to increase the breakfast variety soon. All in all a peaceful place and if in Mussoorie then worth staying again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Amber Vermont Estate is a boutique retreat in the Himalayas. Vermont Estate was originally built in the latter half of the 19th century by a Britisher and is one of the oldest estates in the Himalayan town of Mussoorie. It has been refurbished to retain the atmosphere of a traditional English cottage with the addition of modern amenities. The property is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Mussoorie. The location, and the mix of modern comfort, old English charm and personalized service make The Amber Vermont Estate a treasure in Mussoorie. In the early 1800's, Vermont Estate was part of a grand estate called Logie Estate owned by the well-known Dr. Hugh Falconer. Dr. Falconer was a Scottish geologist, botanist, and paleontologist. He was the first to discover the remains of fossil mammals in the Siwalik Hills of India. In 1832, Falconer became the Superintendent of the Saharanpur Botanical Gardens, one of the oldest existing gardens in India. ... more less
