Like always I would like to begin with the positives. This is a heritage property located very close to Yercaud lake. The plantation within which the hotel is located is majestic. We had a lovely walk through the greenery and you can also have lovely views of the forest. The king size bed in the bungalow suite or English suite (not sure since I got conflicting versions from the staff. The room was 602) was very comfortable for the 3 of us.

They have a trampoline which my kid had great fun on and it left us with time to watch movies being projected on the big screen with a beer. The food was good at reasonable price. The buffet breakfast was ok. I did not like the cheese omelet I ordered as it was overdone.

The room service was good the food ordered was promptly served. Lots of monkeys, bane or boon, up to you to decide. We enjoyed their company.

Now the negatives. I was told that I was being upgraded to a English suite even though I had booking for bungalow suite. I was shown Room 602. The other one I was shown was room 120 or 121. This was very small and so called bungalow suite. So settled for the 602. Initially, the geyser did not seem to work. On calling first we were informed to keep it on for 30 minutes. Then later when we were back after lunch, we informed that because of the power outage the geysers would not work until 6 pm. Yercaud was very cold an we had to manage with very cold running water in the night.

Next morning we realized something was wrong. The electrician came and told us that the coil is spoiled. Its a nuisance to have people running into you room trying to fix things. When I was having bath, the geyser started leaking water rendering the bathroom unusable. By the time help arrived again the tank was empty. The water input to the geyser had to be disconnected.

There was no room available at that point until 12. 30 pm. We went for sightseeing back at 4 pm. Supervisor told me that he came to our room to offer us an adjacent room but we were not around. We were staying there for 2 nights and I then was not really in a mood in shifting for the second night.

Finally, I was given an on the house dinner buffet for the troubles faced. I also wish that this place is better maintained. By the way I don't have Club Mahindra membership so I am not sure if the non-members are treated as well.

Went with my family to get rid of daily routine work, property is awesome in pollution and noise free locality. Rooms are well maintained and look like ancient building. Would like to visit once more. Separate area for kids to play, food is average.

Easy to reach the hotel by train, the near by station is Salem junction in Tamil Nadu. Warm welcome by staff. Nice place to stay. It was a hill station and very cool in April. Neat and tidy hotel. Very well equipped with all the amenities. Quiet relaxed environment.

I travelled Yercaud by my own vehicle. Hotel was good and it was located at a convenient place. A beautiful lake was available in the front of the hotel. Yercaud as a destination is beautiful for travellers. Hotel was clean and maintained nicely. It was my complimentary holiday from Club Mahindra. No delay during check in and check out. Staff was well behaved with customers and they were responding very well to their queries. Room was very spacious and well furnished. Beautiful view was available from the room's window. Quality and taste of the food was decent. I did not face any problem there during my stay. Many activities were present in the hotel. I stayed in this hotel in October 2013 with my family. Really, recommendable hotel.

Hotel was good and conveniently located. Location wise, it was excellent. Appearance of the hotel was very good. Booking was done through online. No difficulty in check in and check out. Booking and front office services were good. Staff people were friendly but they were late in their services because of the rain. Room was spacious and well-maintained. It was neat and clean also. TV, AC, geyser or everything was provided in the room and they were in working condition. Room and its facilities were excellent. We tasted food in this hotel. It was little expensive. Breakfast was complimentary there and it was really good. Lots of varieties were available there. Food was very good. We did not utilize any activity there. As a tourist place, Yercaud is very good. It is a recommendable hotel to others. I had gone there last month with my friends for relaxation.

Stayed there for 2 days, good amenities. As in the title of this review, the decor of the room will take us to the olden days; cot / mirror / arrangements. Food was good and not too heavy on your wallet also. Located just near the lake but view wise not so great.

The hotel was like a heritage kind of hotel. It was a very good property. The hotel was very close to the town and very conveniently located. The hotel appearance was excellent and awesome. The interiors and furnitures were very attractive. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The staff were very supportive and polite. They were quick in responding to our request. The hotel room was excellent, spacious, neat and clean. The amenities like TV, geyser and coffee maker were available and in working condition. The room service was excellent. The hotel provided complimentary breakfast. The food had lots of variety and the taste was not up to the mark. The hotel organised evening get to gather music, carom board, kids play zone and other activities. Overall, the stay was very much satisfactory and great value for money. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers too.

The hotel is located in a convenient place and it was near to the city. Staff service and appearance of the hotel was good. The rooms are well maintained with clean pillows and bedspreads changed and the rooms had a mountain view. They provided food it was average with both veg and non-veg. There were no issues at check-in and check-out and it was value for the money what I spent there. It is a recommendable hotel for all the travellers. It was a relaxing trip with my family.
