Set in the Garhwal Himalayan foothills, The Golden Palms Hotel & Spa is 34kms from Dehradun-Rajpur Road and is located bang on mall road. The hotel provides private parking for their guests which some hotels in Mussoorie do not. There is a specific time for the entry of cars on the mall road with an entry fee. Everytime you exit the mall road and return back, you have to pay the entry fees again.
This hotel has always been on top of our list to stay in Mussoorie. The property is designed as colonial style and earlier it was called Sylverton Estate. As you enter the mall road, there is a small road on the left which takes you to the hotel, down the hill. So everytime you have to visit the mall road, you need climb a steep road which is a challenge.
About The Hotel:
The elegant rooms feature flat-screen TVs and balconies plus mini fridge along with tea and coffeemaker. There are 4 categories of rooms- Executive Double Room, Valley View Ground Floor, Valley View First Floor and Premium Suites.
We always prefer the Valley View Ground Floor room. It is convenient and comfortable as you don’t have to go up and down the stairs for any amenities other than the spa. In addition, this room is situated next to the garden area and it has a small porch outside the room with Cane furniture and the breathtaking view is only a few steps away. It is extremely beautiful to sit outside in evenings and gaze at the sky and enjoy your stay.
Interiors & Food:
The interiors are really soothing and cleanliness is maintained throughout the hotel. The lobby area is quite comfortable and gives a very pleasant vibe. The rooms are quite spacious with all the modern fittings and designs. The food is delicious and lip-smacking and the portions are quite big. The service is fantastic and the waiters make you feel very comfortable.
The Multi-Cuisine Restaurant at the hotel serves lavish buffets. There is an outdoor BBQ and a cosy bar along with provision of bonfire which can chargeable. Leisure facilities include a spa, fitness centre, game room and a playground for kids. There are meeting and conference rooms for the working guests.
Its mesmerizing. The panoramic view from the garden area is just phenomenal and leaves you spellbound.
