Very near to yercaud lake, hardly 2 hours journey from Salem we visited in March 1st week. Thought the place would be hot/warm.. Surprisingly it was too cold.. especially with all those old trees, palace type bedroom environment. food was too good & well within budget. Best option for people looking for a short break. Hardly 6 hrs drive from... More

It's a nice property with sounds of birds chirping all around. Nice to stay for holiday. Food was very good. More than the amenities the very courteous and humbleness of Mr.SALIM (GENERAL MANAGER of The Lake Forest Hotel, Yercaud ) made our stay more valuable and unforgettable. Mr.PRINCE PHILIP of Club Mahindra was also very courteous and helpful in all... More

We (family of 4) had a wonderful stay at the Lake Forest Yercaud. Apprehensive when we got in on Monday 7th April 2014, but soon the place and its surrounding grew on us. The serene quiet environment is blissful. Lake forest has the right balance of fun activity options for the family and a much needed down time. What we... More

It's actually quite a nice property, built on a coffee plantation. The name "Lake Forest" suits it as you feel you are in one! With no sounds but only of birds chirping all around, it's really peaceful. With not much to do in Yeracaud, this place surely does qualify for a two day getaway! Rooms: they have an old world...

Situated in serene sylvan surroundings and far from the din and bustle of city life, Lake Forest Hotel is a perfect place to stay on holiday. The coffee plantations around waft a rare aroma, the air is pure and unpolluted and the 19th century structures that are well-preserved take you to a dream world the like of which you have... More

If you are looking for a two to three day stay among coffee, pepper and eucalyptus and would like to be woken up by the whistling of the Malabar thrush, bulbul and so many other song bird then this is the place. One should look at this as a getaway from the city much like I did and just learn... More

We had booked for three nights, but left the Hotel after spending just one night. My wife got the creeps as she likened the hotel to a haunted house that's seen in horror movies. The rooms have no air conditioning, but it was pleasant when we visited there in May. The fixtures, furniture, doors - every thing is ancient. We... More

Its good for a short stay of 2 or 3 days. The plus factor is the antiquity mixed with the coffee estate pepper vine aura. Staff attended promptly, and were informative. Geyser was not working in our room. Finally it is an average hotel, but since it's purpose is to be eco-friendly, and if one factors this point when planning... More

We booked this hotel @ the last moment thinking that it will be good going by the Club Mahindra tag. However, it was a disappointed in terms of service and Food. Rooms too are pretty outdated. We had booked for 4 days and 3 nights and checked out on the 3rd day itself. Pros: 1. Inside coffee estate and cold... More
