Best / Only Hotel in Landour
by Aditya S on
The title might be slightly misleading. Let me clarify. This is absolutely one of the best properties Ive ever had the pleasure of staying in, irrespective of choice (or lack thereof) of accommodations in Landour.
Outstanding Food - The quality of food served at the in house Emily's Cafe and from Landour Bakehouse is spot on. Was blown away with the variety and authentic preparations of even tricky dishes (here's looking at you Carbonara!).
Brilliant views and connected to the only default walking trail in Landour (a scenic, leisurely stroll that can be completed within an hour at most), would definitely visit again.

Hidden gem in the hills of lal tibba. We booked 3 bedroom villa to celebrate our friends birthday. Perfect for small parties. The rooms are specious enough for a family of 6 or 8 with plenty of space and big bathrooms. Open jakuzi is out of this world with full view of mussorrie. You can enjoy amazing view from the garden or by simply walking to enjoy the greenery surrounding the place.
Avoid room no. 6

We stayed in the beautiful property of rockby for 2 nights. Unfortunately there is no view of the beautiful scenery around you, as the views are only available in the cottages of the property & none of the normal rooms are with views, secondly I stayed in room no. 6 there was this Continuous water dripping noise in the room, due to which I was unable to sleep at nights, when I inquired about the same they informed me that this was the noise of there deep fridge, the noise was so annoying that my holidays were ruined.
Also you have to ask for Basic facilities like hair dryer, dental kit etc. Staff was good & helpful. Food was good & views can be enjoyed from their lawn & highlands, but they will serve Food to u only once On highlands, so u need to order in one go.
My personal advice is please avoid staying in room 6.
Lost in time and tranquility

Only after I reached I realized that the hotel is one of the first settlement in the mussorie region, Established in eighteen century. Although its a heritage property that doesnt mean that it is out of modern amenities. Please remember smoking is prohibited inside the hotel.
Lost in time and tranquiltiy, thats the feelings which will surrond you althroughout your stay. Food is yummy, delight for the continental food lovers. Emilys (restaurant) serves foods to remember. Never tried Indian food so cant vouch for the same.
When you are in landour you have no activity except enjoy the place and tranquility. Stroll around, An old church that shares its birth year with the hotel is just beside the hotel, so is char dukan (popular in Ruskin Bond Stories), a cafe, all close by to this hotel. There is a Tibetan restaurant, a bakery managed by the hotel are also good options.
If you enjoy, peace tranquility you are really going to like this place.
Peaceful, super-comfortable and welcoming

Rokeby Manor is a beautiful heritage hotel, in a peaceful and serene spot above Mussoorie. I stayed for two weeks while learning Hindi at the local language school, which is just five minutes away. So I got to know the place pretty well!
My room was warm and comfortable, with everything you could need. The air conditioner made sure it was warm and cosy, and the bed was very comfortable. The best part was the view, which looked down over the valley and was absolutely stunning.
Other great parts of the hotel are the lounge, where I spent several contented hours doing my homework and watching cricket in front of the fire, the library which has an excellent selection of books and magazines with an India-focus and the restaurant - again great views.
The food at Rokeby is fantastic, with a breakfast buffet with a huge range from which to choose. The evening menu is also massive - I think I ate there most evenings without getting bored (and I don't think I actually finished a meal as portions are pretty huge and I'm pretty small).
Although the location, hotel, food and rooms are fantastic, what's really lovely about Rokeby is the staff. You're made to feel very welcome. Especially appreciated is a hot water bottle and box of handmade chocolates delivered to your room every evening! Special commendations must be made to:
* Priyanka on the front desk, who is always polite, welcoming and helpful.
* Pradeep the omelette master, who not only makes the best masala omelettes, but has a greeting and a huge, genuine smile for you every morning.
* Reuben the Duty Manager, who really understands customer experience and is clearly destined for great things in the hospitality industry.
Generally, all the staff can't do enough for you and they make Rokeby a really special place to stay - it well deserves its reputation.
