I highly recommend staying at Rokeby Manor. I traveled to Mussoorie to meet up with friends. The hotel itself is beautiful, staff is friendly, and it is outside the chaos of the city. I use a manual wheelchair and the first floor Rose Suite worked out well (though not perfect). There are 1 to 2 inch bumps into the front entrance, the front door must be held open (not pushed through), the bed is about 30" high, and the hill leading up to the entrance would be a bear for the strongest chair user. But this is India, so you can't expect ADA facilities. The restaurant, Emily's, is on the second floor, but they were willing to deliver to the garden or the room (I was also also carried up the stairs three times). The food is wonderful and very reasonably priced. The roads in the area are paved, so pushing in the area is do-able. But Mussoorie is called a "hill station" for a reason. Taking a taxi is a must to go into town. Overall, I highly recommend staying at Rokeby Manor. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay wonderful!
- 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
