Visited Rokeby Manor recently. The place has a typical 'old-world' charm.....the management has tried to re-create the British aura, what with its interiors as well as its exteriors....the tea garden, the living room, the open bonfireplace, etc. The restaurant is very good and food, snacks and coffee really good and well-priced. The Rooms are well appointed and done-up individually, instead of a 'mirror-image' decor most hotels have. However the room tariff is steep.........still a place worth visiting, especially for those who want to discover the 'real' Mussoorie that exists beyond the cacophony of its Mall Road!
- 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
