Not up to the mark

Posted 24 Dec, 2017

I booked this hotel by seeing the rating and reviews from fellow travellers. And I was very confident that I got a good deal. After reaching there I was highly disappointed. Pros: 1. Breakfast was good. I had idli, vada and omelette. 2. They have nice parking area and 3. Garden too. Cons: 1. They didn't give the room as shown in the pic. The rooms floor was not clean. 3. No drinking water or toiletries in the room. 4. No tissue paper in the bathroom. 5. The taps in the bathroom were leaking. 6. The blanket was quite thin. I had to ask them for extra balnket. Note: The breakfast is not complimentary.

Blooming Nature All Around

Posted 16 Jun, 2016

We arrived yelagiri Friday Feb 2016 from Chennai all the way is a fabulous drive we had. Unfortunately, we couldn't got enough rooms at Zeenath Taj, as we were 3 familys total 15 adults and 4 kids. So we took other near by hotel for the day to stay and we got next day all 4 double bedrooms at Zeenath Taj is really thankful to the management for excellent hospitality that they provide all the way from room service to food and other needs our family expert. The place is covered of numerous flowers all around which is really beautiful to spend time with your close ones and family. Zeenath staff are provided small trekking in early morning is wonderful walk into the forest and come back with nice breakfast inside and again fun playing some indoor games. Once back for delicious lunch is really tasty that I liked. Finally at night under freezing climate with campfire will bring the trip a excellent memories within family is a unforgettable. I suggest this place for all.

Great stay with good staff

Posted 6 Feb, 2016

It was a family weekend getaway that was planned and I had made the choice of staying here. This was my first visit to yelagiri and I had booked this resort. The room was okay but because it was a resort you have to live among plants and for those nature lovers it's paradise. The staff were courteous and the food, I should say is worth everything. For new travellers, I would suggest or insist on eating here and not outside as you will not find good food outside anywhere in yelagiri. They take you for a short trekking also behind the resort in the evening which is a must do for first time trekkers. An experience worth every penny.

Good ambience and clean room with quality food

Posted 1 Aug, 2015

I visited Yelagiri hills with family and stayed in this hotel. It was convenient to locate the hotel and it was close to the city. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was nice. The room allotted to me was spacious and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. I ate food in the hotel and it was good in quality and taste, and the price was expensive. There were no activities in the hotel. Overall, the destination and stay in the hotel was good and I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Beautiful place and homely food

Posted 6 Jul, 2015

This place is a calm and beautiful. If you want to relax and enjoy then this is the place. From here the lake and the musical fountain are near. You can go for a stroll at night. The place is quieter in the evening as not much of commercialization happened so you can go for evening walks. Food outside the resort are reasonable and good. The resort has self service restaurant. The buffet spread is delicious and nice. Very polite staff and the management.

Posted 18 Nov, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our one-night stay at the Zeenath Taj Gardens. We went in as \'walk-in customers, with no baggage\' but were treated like honoured guests by Mr. Perumal and his team at the reception. They explained to us, that the hotel had two rack rates, one for check ins from Sunday to Thursday, and the other for weekends. It being a Sunday, we were fortunate to get this former, which is HALF of the weekend rates. There is no restaurant as such. The resort provides buffet meals, (veg and non-veg) only if required and ordered in advance. (Tip: There are not too many better places in Yelagiri Hills to eat, so better order your meals from the resort. Breakfast: Rs. 100 per head, Lunch and Dinner Rs. 150 per head respectively). We found the meals to be really good value for money. The resort is spread over twelve acres, and considering its size is quite well maintained. There are lots and lots of very pleasent walks to go for. Our only regret was that we didn\'t bring our two grandsons along, because they would really have enjoyed the open spaces, and the playing facilities for younger children, which included a mini trampoline!

Posted 30 May, 2010

We went to Zeenath Taj on April 22nd 2010 and party of 15 people. It was a lovely experience . A perfect weekend getaway from concrete jungle and ever ringing phones. The place is so attached to nature and bliss that your cell phones don\'t work. The kids enjoyed a lot mangoes, guavas , lychees , jackfruits all reachable to our hands and enjoyed plucking and eating. Food and Service Team is very good . The staff are so amicable that they made their authentic \'Vaniyambadi Briyani\' on saturday for us as we requested which is usually made only on Sunday. We had fun playing Cricket and the kids play area is also good. If you love trekking there is also a small mountain trek avaialble behind the resort. It was fun doing it . Zeenath Taj - Thumbs Up - Worth the money spent

Beautiful location and we might go there once more just to eat the food!

Posted 18 Jun, 2013

We were a group of 7 friends who went to Yelagiri hills just to chill out and relax for two days.We had booked Zeenath Taj Gardens prior. We arrived around mid-night and there were staffs ready to help us at the reception with our luggages and locating our rooms. Its a big place surrounded by mango trees etc. The mattresses were very comfortable and ther was a TV showing all possible channels. The taste of the food and the quality in it still lingers in our mouth. It was a buffet and we loved each and every item on the menu. Probably we might go there once more just to eat food!!! As yelagiri is a small place unlike ooty or kodaikanal there are not many spots for sightseeing. But, the place is really beautiful to relax away from the busy buzzling world. No traffic , no pollution, no people rushing here and there, its calm cool and amazing.The staff were very helpful and polite. But do take few necessary medicines suppose you fall ill mid of the night then its going to be difficult. Never try eating out coz we did have lunch once outside in a restraunt which turned out unsatisfactory. They provide pick up and drop facilities too.We played football, cricket, we sat in the swing for hours together. Next time we are going to book for trekking in advance so that we allot seperate time for it as we had no time. Our trip had fullfillment and one main reason for it is ZEENATH TAJ GARDENS!!!

Posted 26 May, 2010

Yelagiri is a place to be at for an ideal weekend hideaway. I didn\'t realise how the hectic schedule at work slipped out of my head during the weekend I was there. Zeenath Taj is THE place to stay at if that\'s what you are there for. My wife and I are just back from Yelagiri and our stay at Zeenath Taj. Hospitality not defined in Hotel Management course is what you experience there. You wouldn\'t spot a beautiful waitress or a smart steward there; but the team out there are doing an outstanding job to keep the feel intact in the resort. The ambience is just right for a weekend hideaway. You don\'t have to step out of the resort to enjoy the visit; you get it all there. The room was cosy and cool and I don\'t think they have anything but cottages there. One of the guys there took us out on trekking to a cliff nearby. The trek was amazing. The food they serve was amazing, especially the breakfast. It was all homely food and traditional menu. My wife and I were chating late night on the swing in front of our cottage. The flock of geese was a special attraction and made the place more rich. I recommend this place; but set your expectations right; you are not at a luxury hotel

Posted 25 Mar, 2011

It is an excellent value for money option if one is looking for a decent yet affordable accommodation. The resort is located on an 8 acre property and has small independent cottage type accommodation. The staff though not quite efficient, are very courteous and are willing to help. The owners too stay on the same premises and are and are quite friendly. Good Food and tranquil surroundings complement the very nature of Yelagiri Hills (One should go to this hill-station if one is happy with notion of an holiday where you do nothing but relax and get away the hustle-bustle of a city life)
