Ivy bank gives you the quintessential Mussoorie/Landour feeling with a lawn terrace out in front with chairs and tables from which to look out into the Himalayan foothills in every direction. The rooms were impeccably clean with a fifties feel, a sitting room, lovely wooden windows, handcrafted ceilings, floors and furniture in a very decent old Mussoorie simplicity - I hope it never changes because I'll be back for certain. The food in the dining room was really, really good (the dining room a bit cold - but this is Mussoorie) and the people kind and thoughtful without being around too much. Discreet. Very pleasant, and I would not go looking elsewhere.The price is right, too.
