2.16km from Trichy Bus BayThis is my second visit to this hotel, as part of ongoing business activities in Namakkal. During my first visit, I did not know what to expect in terms of hospitality from such a small town. I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed in deluxe rooms during both my visits. Rooms are spacious with good views of the semi-urban surroundings. The rooms are decently equipped with basic amenities such as TV (faced some technical issues though), fan and AC, coffee maker, dental and other hygiene kits, hot water with a decent overheard shower. They have introduced a swimming pool too now, and have done up the exteriors. They have a gym just next to the pool. They offer relaxing massages and spa treatments for in-house guests, which I found overpriced and mediocre. A 45 min long foot massage was for INR 1200. They have a restaurant, which has good quality, tasty and decently priced food. Breakfast is typically South Indian with all South Indian varieties, right from idli to dosa to sevaiya etc. Service is quick, although language constraints can sometimes become an issue, but nothing major. The hotel is affordable and worth the modest amount of money you spend. The check-in and checkout process is smooth. They can even arrange at auto rickshaw or cab. You have to negotiate and pay on your own. They just arrange it for you. The staff is prompt and cooperative. Hence I absolutely do not agree with some of the negative reviews here. Hotel Golden Palace is my most trusted accomodation preference whenever I'm in Namakkal.
