"Balanced Holiday"

6.5/7
Posted 28 days ago

My husband and I chose to go on a vacation during the Pongs Holidays and by the time we decided, almost every hotel was full. At long last, we were able to book the room in this Hotel - a Bunglow Suite with less than 10 days for the trip. While we were apprehensive about the rates of the food and the quality of the stay, the room rent seemed very reasonable therefore e chose to go ahead. We traveled from Chennai to Salem via Train and took the car uphill. The drive was amazing and the location of the hotel was a complete surprise for us. It was centrally located and easily accessible. The room rented included Breakfast and Room provided for us was exceptionally good. The weather was just right and the ambience was perfect. The Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and also the fact that our fear for the quality of the hotel/ stay and the rates of the meals was uncalled for. The Hotel is part of the INDeco group and wonderfully maintained with an activity room and a local coffee brewery shop. The staff were helpful enough to provide us with the list of local sightseeing spots. The food was priced at a very reasonable rate and on the whole the experience was one of bliss.

"Staff's behaviour was friendly"

5.0/7
Posted 2 months ago

Everything was good in the hotel. I had visited this hotel with my family for relaxation trip. I had booked the room by online. The activities were available in the hotel. The room provided by the hotel was old one but it was well maintained. The behaviour of the staff’s was friendly in the hotel. The garden was available in the hotel. The check in and checkout was on time. The surroundings of the hotel were good. It was a heritage building. The hotel was located near to the transportation facility. I would not suggest anything to this hotel. All amenities were provided in the room. Wi-Fi service was not available in the hotel. Things were provided on time in the hotel. Room was spacious and clean in the hotel.

The food was nice with quality and quantity. The hotel was located in the centre of the city. I didn't face any problem to reach this hotel. The coffee maker was not available in the room. There were no activities arranged by this hotel. The behaviour of the receptionist was good. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers. The room was clean and neat.

"Lake Forest Yercud"

3.3/7
Posted 3 months ago

A nice coffee estate. When you take left you find shabby road entrance & small entrance of Hotel Lake Forest. Just entrance your vehicle may hit entrance stony path. If you have car with low ground clearance it may hit bottom of your car. A small stony path take you up to front office. You not find any place for parking, some how you have to manage park your car on side of path. It is horrible experience to turn your car. In rainy season it is almost impossible to take out you car. So parking of car is too horrible in hotel. Front office is OK. Staff is also OK. But room of the hotels are too basic. The room offer to me like dormitory, I remember my collage hostel days. So I made complaint to club mahindra ( its tie up with club mahindra) & they immediately offer me 2 more rooms which I select 1, its also basic room but better than first one. Interior of room not giving any feel of antic, royal, British style & not at all any luxury. 38 acre coffee estate is very nice feel. Restaurant is also good. Management is not co operative. I reach on 9/11/2016 & 500/- note problem start. On 11/11/ 16 small keeper start accepting rs. 500/- note giving change. But at the time of check out hotel management demand me card for payment, but then accept Rs. 500/- but refuse to give any change. So I have too loose my Rs. 250/- change. Over all don't expect more from hotel.

"Good view from room; friendly staff"

6.8/7
Posted 3 years ago

We went there in mid October 2013; the Property is very close to the Lake and walk-able distance from the city/town centre. The property is old but very well maintained with complete aesthetic and antique value. The place is completely green friendly, and they always try to protect the flora and fauna that lives in and around the property. The view from the room and whole property is too good. The room was quite good and well maintained though old. The bed was very big and also had an extra single bed near the television. Regular cleaning was done by the housekeeping team, except for reminding them only once. There were ample plug points to charge our phones and the switches and switchboards were of antique model. The people there were very friendly, especially in the reception and in the restaurant. My son who is just three years old still remembers names of a few people there who were very friendly with the kids and played with them. They serve both a' la carte and buffet. A' la carte is served in the room during the specific hours of buffet. The buffet had a very good but a medium spread. The taste was too good. When we go out we have ample number of restaurants very close to the property / lake, if we want to try different food. The travel desk will arrange cab for sightseeing and pick-up and drop to and fro Salem junction and Lake Forest with a nominal charge. Every evening they have some activities or games conducted for the inmates, which our kids enjoyed. But there is not swimming pool, kids play area in the property. There is a well maintained gym, indoor play area for elders which has carom, chess, mancala (pallanguzhi) etc and a few shuttle rackets for big children to play in the open area. Only major thing I was concerned during the stay was safety for kids both in the room and in the restaurant. The windows in the room and in the restaurant was very big and openable from the floor level and the handle to open it was in very low height that kids can open them very easily and it was very deep down when we peep through the window. I had in fact given suggestion to the manager while leaving to change the model of the window, such that it can be open only from certain height and it is kid’s proof. Overall it was a pleasant and memorable stay.

6.6/7
Posted 6 years ago

It was one of the best weekend break we ever had, being close to Bangalore it is an ideal choice. The resort has maintained its heritage look and feel, and lovely antique furniture and fittings are exhibited in royal finish and style all over the resort. The resort is situated in the midst of a coffee estate, Nostalgia in all its glory !!!

"A comfortable stay but parking facilities can be improved"

6.5/7
Posted 2 years ago

The destination of the hotel was very good. The hotel was located in high of the peak. The hotel was near to a temple. The hotel professionals were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was an old building and well maintained I will suggest people to go there. There is a lake view from the hotel. The interior and exterior of the hotel was good. The parking facilities are not proper especially in night time. The hotel room is well maintained and hygienic. There were no any views from the room provided for us. There were both veg and non-veg. as we are not member we did not engage in activities. The check-in and check-out was good. They did not arrange any sightseeing but they guided us for sightseeing. The hotel is too costly they can reduce the room fare so it can be affordable for all.
