“Great Hositality”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

Mussoorie is an excellent place to visit for relaxation from ur daily routines .....After visiting Ilbert Manor i felt amazing the property is located close to the Mall Road and is luxurious .the ambiance of the hotel is really good.there is a Himalayan view that can be seen from backside of the hotel the interior of the hotel is worth seeing each room has a unique interior and a name given to it.the food and hospitality of the hotel is excellent..there is a small library ,spa and meditation room which are very relaxing ...I really feel if one visits Mussoorie hotel Ilbert Manor is worth visiting.

Mussoorie is rightly worthy of the title "the queen of hills". My stay at Ilbert Manor made it one of the best hill station excursions. Ilbert is located at a highly esteemed property. It is very close to The Mall Road and other tourist destinations. They have a special pick up and drop,cab facility . The rooms are opulent and extremely comfortable. The hall is really beautiful where one can sit, read a good book,newspaper and sip tea or coffee. Whenever i go to mussoorie, ilbert is my first preference in hotels. It has so much to offer. I absolutely loved the food there. Hats off to the chef,amazing and sumptuous indian cuisine. And sometimes there is an open kitchen in the garden where we are served pasta and salads. I had an amazing time at ilbert.The staff is cooperative and hospitable. I have been there with my family and friends both.It was a vacation in complete tranquility. I relish the experience :)

Over prised and look out for hidden Charges as in food and extra beddings.
Food quality is average and not much to dishes in menue to offer.
Bathrooms and rooms are nice with decent furniture and fixtures. However I dont think they have much staff to handle big bookings.

Like most of us.... after several months of working and putting myself through absolute torture of getting stuck in traffic to and fro to work with absolutely no time to myself ,honks of cars is all I could hear, I needed a Getaway. I decided to go up the hills.. Destination Mussoorie. Amazing drive. Checked in at Ilbert Manor. Coming from a hospitality background, very seldom but I do get into the details of noticing every thing at the Hotel. This heritage property was flawfless! "CLASSIC" is how I would describe it! I loved the yoga and meditation room.... delicious food and everything else. close to the mall yet quiet! One of the best properties I have visited. I think they are going to see a lot more of me ! :D

I went to Ilbert Manor for two nights and even though I was traveling alone I would surely go back with my family. It is slightly away from the crowded Mall Road and in my definition that is a plus. Yet it is not too far away from the city hub.

The rooms are really beautiful but just walk to the first floor and see the corridor and slanting roof, it just took my breath away. Modern buildings are no longer built that way! The chairs by the window are inviting to sit by them and do nothing or maybe read.

The room service is good. Try their 'Bombay Sandwiches' it was really well done. Even the pakoras are quite good.

I was not carrying my laptop but I am told that the hotel has wifi.

I have tried their spa and the lady who attended to me was good, she was quite attentive to my needs.

Overall I had an excellent stay, I was quite comfortable. In the end I like the sign left on the tables and this is a paraphrase, no one has smoked here since 1840, we appreciate that you are keeping the tradition alive.

Like most of the travellers have mentioned already that when we were on the way to the property we were not sure of our choice but, the moment we entered the Ilbert Manor estate we were presently surprized. The property is luxury in every way. The Lounge, bar and the private reading room were my favrourite hangouts.
My wife spent time doing meditation in their yoga, meditation and steam room. They even arranged a yoga session for me wife where the yoga instructor gave her natural healing and tips on how to live our life better.
We stayed at The Manor for 3 nights and ate very nice and wholesome indian food. The chef were consulting personally with everyone before hand. We were very impressed with the personalized services. The small touches in the room and bathroom made us their loyal customers. We are planning to visit them soon. we recommend Ilbert Manor to all the travellers. Its a hidden jewel in mussoorie hills

Room Tip: Ask for fanny parkes room or john mackinnon room

Apprehension turned out to be a very nice surprise when we reached Ilbert Manor. As usual, Mussoorie was a traffic chaos when we entered but the Manager Mr Abhishek offered great personal help in finding suitable parking for our vehicles which otheriwse would have been a nightmare. The Property is awesome. It is a 170 years villa, restored and converted into a small resort. The victorian soul of the property is still intact with massive rooms, 16 ft high ceilings, wooden flooring and impeccably kept. Even though it is 100 mtrs off the Mall, they have a good service for pick and drop to the Mall. The staff was very nice and friendly. There are facilities of a spa, pool table, small library etc.
Highly recommended
