We visited this hotel last month as a member of Club Mahindra,who have arrangements with the hotel for their members. It is a heritage property. A Britisher's bunglow,which is refurbished & reconstructed as a holiday resort.This is genuine & the best heritage property we have seen in India.However,the resort fails to provide the comfort levels one is used to in...

the property is a beautiful one no doubt about it. it feels like living inside a small forest actually. the first thing i noticed is that if you drive down to the reception, you cant park your car there. so i turned the car, parked it on the side of the pathway. the welcome drink offered had better not been...

I spent two nights in this hotel with my husband. We really enjoyed the stay. The staff was very nice and the room was clean. It's a very nice place to relax. They have a lot of types of rooms. I recommend to everybody.

It is old British place converted into a hotel. It is not a luxurious new hotel. Went with family on a weekend. It is in the center and not on the hill slope. You will not have Salem city or complete valley view similar to GRT or Rock Perch. We stayed in a bungalow suite, Room was old and big.... More

This property is right behind the Yercaud Botanical Garden and near Yercaud lake. If you have ever been to Yercaud you will know the Botanical Garden / Lake area is noisy, busy, chaotic but I was pleasantly surprised to see that right behind the botanical garden lies a huge coffee plantation and this property is nestled in one edge of...

I booked for two rooms at this property for three nights but was able to get only for two nights. I loved the property for its eco friendly theme and old world charm. There is history every where here. We were warmly welcomed and quickly checked in by Prince from the front desk. We stayed in Rooms 301 and 201,... More

Stayed with 5 families at this place. The claim by operations head was that ' We didn't built a hotel here but created an exotic place that would remain a sweet memory for all our tourists". Well, our experience didn't quite match up to that. First of all, the service was terrible both in terms of quality (had to call... More

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... More

This resort is good for nature lovers, who loves to stay in the midst of a small tree plantation and also loves to hear the music of nature and its creatures. Very near to Yercaud Lake, and I have been there with family, kids and they enjoyed the 2 nights. As the rooms are away from central kitchen, expect a... More

A very unique place to visit. It is steeped in history , all of it is well preserved and documented. Situated on a coffee plantation, it is located in the heart of Yercaud, just walking distance from the lake. Food is good - especially the continental food is enjoyable. We did not try the buffets. One can find small "Udupi... More
