The overall experience at the hotel was good. The hotel was located very nicely. The hotel was in the city only. There was no problem at the time of check in and checkout procedure. The interior and exterior of the hotel was designed in modern trend. The staff were also ok. The room which was provided was also neat, clean and maintained well. All the amenities like TV, AC, etc were working properly. All the required facilities were taken care off. The food was also good. All types of the food were provided in the hotel. The quality was also good and at reasonable. The activities were provided in the hotel like campfire, massage, spa etc. But we didn't take part in that.

I had stayed at this hotel for four days and had a good experience. The hotel is convenient to locate and there was no issues faced during my stay. The appearance of the hotel is good and interiors are maintained well. The room allotted to us was maintained cleanly with all the basic amenities in good condition. There are few activities and games available but it is chargeable. The food provided in the hotel was satisfactory in quality and taste. There was no delay made in check-in or check-out procedure. I had been here with group of seven members and we enjoyed our stay here.

Excellent location in picturesque surrounding. Nice view from the rooms made our stay pleasant and relaxing. In house activity was very invigorating. Room service was par excellence. Staff were courteous and polite. The food was very good albeit little pricey. To sum up, sterling is the best place to stay in Yercaud.

Overall the hotel experience was very good. We reached Yercaud around 11 AM and could reach this Hotel from the Yercaud centre easily.

First we reached Salem, and asked someone for Yercaud route. The road from Salem to Yercaud is an hill road and the drive is very pleasant. There are about 20 HairPin Bends, most of them are wide and safe with proper fencing. Although better to drive with in 50 speed.

Once you are entering Yercaud, you will see on the right side GRT Grand Trails Hotel. Pass this hotel and immediately within 3 minutes, you will enter Yercaud town. There are two ways to reach Rock Perch Sterling Resort. One is, after passing GRT Hotel, and after few meters you will have to take a right. On that road, few guys will collect money for entering that road. (some 30 or 40 Rs. ) On that road, you will see an entrance and ticket counter for Yercaud Lake which is on the Left, there is an Fish aquarium too.

Second is, after passing the GRT Hotel, go straight and you will hit the Yercaud Junction and take right. Now you will see the Yercaud Lake on the Right. Drive straight, and you will have to take the small right which will go towards Rock Perch Hotel. Personally, I would prefer taking this second option since this road is completely developed. However both roads will take around 2 km to reach this hotel.

Actually this hotel is situated near the Rose Garden and Ladies seat, famous attractions in Yercaud, so it is very easy to find. You might think, that this hotel is little outside the town. But it's not, it's right in the town and no problems for the access whatsoever. When you are relaxed, Be sure to visit, Perfume Paradise shop on the way. They have got nice collections.

For Dinner, if you have car, you can visit Yercaud town and then go back to the room, or else you can have it at the hotel itself.

When we reached the Hotel, entrance is quite big and the reception is good with spacious sofa's. We were given welcome drink and promptly attended. Staff was very courteous and the response was better than OK.

Sterling Resort is a big one, and you will have plenty of rooms available. As name suggests, the resort sits on the rocks. So you will have very beautiful views on the Yercaud valley. Currently some renovation is going on, so be sure to ask for new renovated rooms. I stayed in a new room with an elegant design, and has got all the advanced fittings and even an microwave oven. A sofa and a small dining table too. The bed was soft and good, ideal for an couple with one kid, TV channels are mostly the general Indian channels. WiFi is not available and the Cell Phone did not any signal. So be sure to plan accordingly. No major complaints in the room as such.

However one important point is, since the hotel is situated on rocks, you will have to walk a bit (or taking some steps down) to reach to your room from the reception. Ask for rooms which is nearer to reception, but those rooms are not renovated yet, by the time I am writing this and does not have good views. For Older People, I think better to stay near reception to avoid to steps up and down. In fact anybody for that matter, watch out for the steps. Slowly go down and climb up in the steps.

Another thing is monkeys. Guests are given strict instructions not to encourage monkeys. Monkeys do come early in the morning around 8 am, so at this time it's better to keep the door closed. However, I saw plenty of monkeys right in front of my room in the morning, and they are extremely soft and minding their business on their own. In a way, it's a good sight for your kids.

Restaurant and food is awesome. They charge extra of-course, for lunch they charged me 550+ tax per single person. But it's surely worth a try. They had lots of varieties and the mouth watering dishes will leave you utterly impressed. The ambiance in the restaurant is 5-star level, you would be neatly surprised.

If you are going as an family with Kids, there are many activities to try. There is a big hall for the kids activities. Plenty enough for the kids to hang out. Be sure to play Halloween costumes, art and craft, badminton, cycling, TT also. For couples/newly married, other activities like trekking, yoga classes conducted as well. If you want to try an massage too with all herbals, you can. Except for kids activities, some of the activities will cost extra though.

Housekeeping and room service was good, there was no much complaints. They were quick enough to attend us.

On the Yercaud attractions, Ladies seat will give you an nice view of the Yercaud valley. But if you are staying in this hotel, you are already guaranteed to have an good view. Try the telescope viewing in the Ladies seat, that was good. Another near by attraction from this hotel is Rose Garden, you will have plenty of flowers to see, Also to take some pictures. There is Yercaud Lake, Deer Park, Childrens Park - All are in the central town but crowded at times.

Kilyur Falls, - it will take around 3 km from Yercaud town. But when we visited there was no water. From the parking area, sure to note it down that, there are around 300 steps you have to climb down and climb up back. So be sure to decide before you step in. However, when the water flows the sight of this falls will be really good.

There is one cave temple which will take around 8 km from Yercaud town, the drive was simply superb with bamboo forest on both the sides. The road was little bit narrow towards the end, but the temple was good.

Overall the stay was pleasant, driving felt good. Had a good time.

Had been on a weekend trip to Yercaud, Sterling Holidays Rock Perch end of April, 2015. The resort is set up in a wonderful location and the view from the unit was just amazing, we could have a clear view of the entire city of Salem. Especially in the evening the view is just awesome. The resort is set up on the slope of a highest hill in Yercaud over looking the Salem city. Right outside the resort you have the Yercaud lake, boating will be always open but a little crowded. The Lady's seat and Rose garden are at walk-able distance only.

Yercaud is always one of my favourite destinations. A great place to visit and I stayed at Sterling Holidays Rock Perch and the stay was excellent and pleasant. The food was good and the services offered too were good. The activities that take place at night are okay. An alert to travellers is that you might have to climb few stairs.

It is one of the best vacation I've had so far. Excellent place which has a view of the city from the hotel room. Service is excellent, food is good and room ambiance is excellent for relaxation. I would like to visit once more. Had a gala time with friends and family. The view from the hotel is excellent.
