Its a nice hotel to stay, stayed there for 2 days. The hotel has an antique look and has preserved the old style of switches (the black round ones if you remember seeing them in your grandparents house). Good: Ambiance, closer to places of attraction (Lake, Deer park, kids play area, Kiliyur falls). Activities for the kids include Trampoline, swing... More

Spent 2 nights with family last week at this resort - a private resort where Club Mahindra has tie-up with. Lowered my expectations after reading many reviews prior to visit. I was pleasantly surprised by many things.. starting from reception, service, location, amenities, the whole layout of the resort etc. Don't expect a modern type of resort where you typically...

The location and views are great and the rooms are good. Anything good stops there. Their service is especially pathetic; and the staff just dont care! There were quite a few instances of bad service; but one was really exceptional. We requested for additional plates in the room; we had to wait for 30 minutes, and after 3 reminders, we... More

This is our second visit and nice to be one with the nature. very close to all the amenities but still very secluded. Will try and return every 3 months. Just completely relax and simply walk around the property.

If you are hoping for a five star tip top resort at the mountain side, then this is not something where you should be. This is a place to rejuvenate yourself, take a break from strident city life and get introduced to the history, a different era untouched. This is a beautiful property where they have preserved a myriad antiques... More

I visited to this hotel with my family and stayed there for two days. I felt that this resort is not with club mahindra standards. This is a associated property of club mahindra but not up to the mark. Maintenance,room service,food quality etc. was just an average. Moreover the place "YERCAUD" is not worth visiting. Only the weather is good.

Lake Forest is an idyllic hotel with unique cottages set within lots of green and pepper plants. It's super for a weekend break from Bangalore or if you are passing through. The food is good at the in house restaurant as well. The rooms could be maintained better for sure in terms of general upkeep. LF has a laid back... More

Felt they should have maintained the property bit more and being a Mahindra member , there is no discount on food and steep service charges for room too ... This needs a... More

Rooms are below average for Club Mahindra standards. Restaurant does not serve ala-carta option during buffet time and buffet menu was not to our likings. We had to go out for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Won't visit this place again.
