“Pleasent Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

This place is situated away from hustle and bustle of the town on hill top and it comes with great view of Mussoorrie and Dehradoon.

The rooms are done very well and the bed is simply “heavenly”. They give you rustic feel from inside and the Mediterranean exterior.

The restaurant comes with elaborated menu that have variety of Indian, Western and Lebanese flavor and is priced just right.

They have a small saloon,its clean and again right priced. You can enjoy a great foot massage. The staff is great.

Service in restaurant is average but the great food makes you forget the same.

It’s a must visit place and great destination to rejuvenate.

Room Tip: Few rooms have noise from the kitchen on the top.

Had the opportunity to spend last weekend at Rokeby Manor in the unheard Landaur , a town slightly higher then mussourie.
A small 12 room boutique property , very homely atmosphere. , no one room is identical to the other. The food all freshly prepared tastes good. It would be much better had theyade a little variation on the breakfast menu. Which was the same both the days
A common area was a treasure , with a variety of reading materials , from all type of novels, to classics, to magazines , to newspapers. One could spend the whole day reading and exploring the books.
Another highlight of the property is the open Jaccuzi at the Highlands.
To sum up a nice quiet place to spend a holiday with family or in a group far away from the maddening crowd of mussourie

I'm sure this is the most beautiful Hotel in India. Food out of the world! Finally excellent Continental Food and - wow ! Croissonts and Birchermüsli for Breakfast! Very polite and attentive staff. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere with personal touch. I felt secure and extremely well looked after like being a member of the family.

Room Tip: All rooms have theirs unique charm.

This place is amazing, giving top European standards at very reasonable prices, even for India. The service is attentive and pitched just right. The accommodation itself is wonderful, tastefully done, and the restaurant is a huge surprise. The menu is very long, which would ordinarily lead you to think it would all be of a pretty low standard. The reverse is true. I don't know how they train their chefs, but you won't find a better Pain au Raisin outside Paris, a better Roesti outside Switzerland, better Hummus and Pita outside Beirut, Pancakes outside Vermont. The list goes on and on. Stay here. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 3. It looks out on the plant equipment. It is noisy, there is no view and the staff gathe...

After hearing soo much about the place i definitely had to visit the place..well it was better than my expectations..i and my friends who had just come to the place for a meal liked it sooo much that we decided to stay on for the night..beautiful property..and being slightly away from main mussoorie has amazing views..
however the only thing not upto the mark was the rooms as i felt they were a bit over rated..maybe because we stayed in the suite(9) as that was the only room available that time..the standard rooms were definitely better and have a better view(atleast the one i was shown)..bed was very comfortable..i expected a bit more from the rooms as compared to the rest of the property..(maybe it was the pink paint on the wall of my room that was a put off :P)
apart from that the food is great and infact very very reasonably priced..they have a great breakfast menu..the staff is courteous..
overall a great stay..i and my friends surely had a great time..
must visit places around the hotel - the church and 'char dukaan' around the corner..they have pancakes to die for..
would definitely visit the boutique hotel again..

Room Tip: standard room better than the suite..

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
