Mussoorie - Dancing Leaves, A Sterling Holidays Resort

Reviewed April 24, 2013

The property is nice and comfortable. Its a family resort, so you won't find many couples out there. It has a nice recreation area with billiards, chess, carrom, table tennis.

The rooms are OKish. They gave us a renovated room, but the fixtures were ordinary. The bathroom was clean and hot water was available. Our room had a nice view from the balcony. The property was still under renovation when we stayed there, but they kept the work areas nicely separated. The smell of the paint though was still there. The balcony door was not wind proof, so probably in winters it will a lot more cold.

The dinner and breakfast buffet was a bit better than the property itself.

They have guest parking but when it gets full you start wondering why I didn't bring hatchback as it can get really cramped. About 15 cars can be parked easily, if that number increases you are in trouble.

The most disappointing part is the fact that the property is 2.5km away from Library / Gandhi chowk and the road you take to reach there is very narrow. So if another car comes in opposite direction you are on your own. And if you drive your own car, its no good as the parking isn't closeby the market anyway.

this was my first trip to Mussoorie and I used the hotel as I used my FREE vouchers. My next trip I will surely opt for properties on Mall road or Landour with nice parking, where you can have a stroll on mall road anytime of the day without any parking / driving hiccups.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room with a valley view

In my 15+ years of domestic and international travel, I have never experienced such LOUSY staff and service. I can write paragraphs on how our trip was ruined by the staff but in the interest of keeping it objective, I choose to be brief and give a rather unbiased view. Apart from being provided with rooms at 5pm while we arrived at the hotel at noon, the rooms were 190 steps down from the reception/main area. They were adjacent to where a massive renovation was underway and the staff wasn't available when needed. To make it all worse, there were HUGE parking issues and when we tried to call the manager on duty (Mr Rajendra Mathure) to assist resolve since the guards on duty were not helpful, he was not only rude but he said stuff like --- I have a life, do you want me to have poison and die and what not!!!. It put me in a state of shock becuase who in a responsible position would talk like that? I truly hope someone senior within the Sterling management sees this and address the issue. And for the sake of your own sanity, go anywhere else but here since there are a bunch of jerks running this place! Btw we made the booking through make my trip and they werent of any assistance when we reported our issues to them.

Room Tip: The pictures on make my trip do NOT show the correct picture. Most of the rooms are located at a f...

We hesitantly booked Sterling (being members) for our stay recently. We were provided newly renovated guest rooms, which are quite nice. the view from the resort is good, located at an elevation. Food was ok, though you don't have much choice at that location. Its worthwhile only for members. Biggest disappointment was that rooms have no view/balcony, as they were located at the basement overlooking hotel staff quarters.

Room Tip: Ask for the new rooms they have good amenities, but no view (located at the basement).

This hotel staff does not know single thing about the service industry and top of all the hotel staff is not educated at all. I reached the hotel at 12 pm and i paid in advance for the booking still i was provided with the room at 5 pm in the evening. Story does not end here i made numerous calls to room service and reception and maximum times my call was not picked and by chance if the call was picked then no one gave me the concrete answer they rather kept on making excuses like "Our staff is on his Lunch break".
Trust me there is no good view from this hotel it's all myth.

Room Tip: There is a renovation going on so please avoid booking this hotel coz you will not be able to sleep...

I LOVED this place. But nevertheless, objectively mentioning pointers that may help other travellers, given how I am alright with a certain level of what other people call discomfort. Hope this helps.

Pros:
- 2.5kms from the popular Library area, this is a world of peace and quiet.
- Offers a full view of the valley and of town of Mussoorie which is built on the slopes of the mountain ranges.
- You can see Lal Tibba, Mussoorie's highest point from the lobby area.
- The restaurant food is homey and wonderful, seasonal and locally sourced. The dairy foods are particularly good because the cattle in these areas are well-bred. You are never going to fall sick from the restaurant food.
- The hotel itself is situated on the slopes so the rooms are all at varying levels - if you get one of the lower level rooms, that could mean a massive step climbing workout each time you have to climb out of your den - for fitness freaks, this is a welcome challenge but if you are a lazy bum or old or sick or pregnant - then this should probably go in with the cons.
- They have play pens for kids, activity centres in the hotel - nice if you plan to spend a day just relaxing in their resort.
- They are having the place landscaped so I guess it's going to look prettier than it already is pretty soon.
- The staff is warm and friendly and humble. Loved how they were ready to share information and little local stories and tips whenever we needed them.
- They can arrange sight seeing tours for you at an additional cost.

Cons:
- Like I mentioned, the step climbing may be a challenge to some so for those people, it's a downside.
- The hotel offers no cab pick up and drop service to the Library area and Mall road, which means that you spend 200 bucks one way to go up just 2.5kms to the hotel from the Library area, which I think is a massive rip off. The hotel should probably think of starting pick ups and drops for it's guests on request at a subsidised rate. What did we do? We love walking so we walked 5kms everyday, to and fro. Not everybody will be okay doing this though.
- The restaurant service can be slow. Especially when the more than three tables are full. Service times need to buck up, cold places make people extra ravenous.
- The wifi is a disaster. Just won't work so if you are planning to carry online work with you, may the force be with you.

Room Tip: Pick rooms that are at the top if you are not fit enough to do some climbing. The rooms at the botto...

We had a great time at Sterling Mussorie , Great Property very peaceful view was excellent . We could see the whole Doon Valley . The new rooms were grear with big LCD screens . One dosent need to go any where he can just relax and enjoy the beauty from his balcony . Food was good .
Event the bathrooms looked as they had just been renovated . Nothing less than 5 star rooms . It is the best destination near Delhi . Thanks Sterling for such a comfortable stay .
