Reviewed September 12, 2013

The very moment you enter ILBERT MANOUR you are catapulted in a different world. World made by silence, serenity, peace, protection. It is like you pass through times and spaces to find yourself in a different era. The heritage furniture, the silence of the corridors, the discret presence of staff, all this makes this unique atmosphere which brings your mind to almost meditative state. Ilbert manor is not a hotel it is a special dimension.

Room Tip: We stayed in FANNY PARKER and we reccommend this room.

In every which way this hotel projects itself as a manor and a heritage option to Rokeby or Nabha, the better known cousins in Mussoorie/Landor. Misses the mark by a mile when it comes to the rooms and by a lightyear when it comes to the food and overall experience.

Must admit that the rooms have some character but that's where it ends. They serve all kinds of cuisine (Indian, chinese, continental, etc.) which are quite similar because they are consistently bad.

Another tip. This hotel is available on the usual Makemytrips of the world. I had booked a suite for Rs. 9000 through Makemytrip and found out after i checked in that the hotel was offering it for Rs. 7000 for a direct booking. So much for all those claims of the best deal.

Room Tip: if at all book it directly and not from any site

Rooms are very nice . Service is the best .the staff is very well manered. it has a nice library and a pool room.they should make a bar and an open restaurent. The entrance is the only bottle neck but the rooms and the hotel is superb . you ll find all the luxuries of a five star with a heritage tinge.Overall rating 4/5

i have been visiting mussoorie since my childhood and staying in all types of hotels.but i must say that ilbert manor stands above the rest. its a very small n xtremely beautiful property with each n every luxury at your disposal. and one thing that makes it even more fantastic is its staff. which is ever smiling very helpfull and cooperative. from the day of booking till we reached hotel Mr. Anil was in constant touch with me. which i felt was very personal touch to the guest.
ROOMS: the rooms were very spacious and elegant in decor. they can give any 5 star hotel's romm run for their money. the bathrooms are even bigger than the rooms with all the basic amenities like towels, hair dryer, shaving kit, shower n hair gel etc.
FOOD: the food is really amazing with lots of variety to eat. their chicken keema is to die for. we just loved it. breakfast was also good specially their grilled snadwitches.
STAFF: the staff is just outstanding from Mr. VIKAS, Mr. ANIL, Mr VINEET, MrPYARE SINGH.
They are just exceptional in their duties and knows the art of pleasing their customer. earlier i use to rate taj people above everyone but these guys were equally good. very polite very understanding n helpful. on the last night of my stay the entire hotel was empty so i requested them to upgrade my room to the suite and they happily greed. each n every room is fantastic.
LOCATION: this can be of bit dissappointment to those who love the hustle bustle of the city as the property is located in a secluded place down the road. but they have a prompy pick up n drop service to the mall road from hotel. big cars are parked in the pvt parking area by the hotel and we need not to pay etc. so that is not a issue.
if you ask me then yes definitely i would love to come back again as mussoorie is a second home for us n one visit per year is necessary for us.

Room Tip: all rooms are good but room no. 203 is just fantastic. i was offered another nice room 205 but i opt...

This might just be another review in a series of positive reviews ... but the hotel is top-rated for a reason. The staff is a key reason for this, as they go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The hand-holding they provide right from the time you enter Mussoorie, to the time you leave is simply awesome ... and kinda rare in India !!

Another aspect is the services on offer at the hotel - the stand-out amongst them being the food. The food is fairly priced and is of high quality. The hotel boasts of a wide variety of cuisines ... and ofcourse adequately sized portions to make it a filling experience.

Some areas of improvement : A proactive approach in helping visitors choose rooms while booking the hotel would be helpful. While some rooms are at an excellent locations with good views, the others are pretty average. We were given a room which was quite average to start with (since we weren't aware of this earlier) ... but the hotel management upgraded it to a cottage the next day, which was worth the wait !! So thank you ...

Room Tip: The cottages (CS1 and CS2) are the best ... CS2 is on the top with a good view and definitely worth...

A friend of mine recommended this hotel in mussoorie. First when I saw the reviews,website and pictures of the hotel I was very excited to visit the place, but had one thing in the back of mind whether these pictures are original or fake?? But after the visit, all my doubting worms vanished away. The hotel was same even extrs beautiful as it was in the images. The welcome was grand, the food was excellent and entetainment options were a real treat. I thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Staying here was worth every single rupee. I wish I could stay here more.

Royal by its name! We enjoyed our 4 nights stay at this property. This is one of the nicest place to live,dine and enjoy keeping aside all your professional and personal worries. I felt this hotel should open chains in every hook and corner:)
This is definitely an ageless hotel,well maintained,scrumptious food and high on entertainment value etc. If you'll Google the name of this hotel,you'll come to know why its most famous. This is rated and reviewed as one of the brilliant hotel to review. Magnificent,absolutely brilliant..!
