It was by chance that I booked at Lake Forest. And must say I'm very happy I chose this property. It was for a 3-day weekend getaway back in April. We knew Yercaud is a small town but didn't think it would be this small. No proper restaurants at all; across the city. So you don't have a choice but... More

We stayed at Lake Forest hotel for one night as part of a longer road trip. This is a hillside resort with a colonial charm in each of the cottages. We had booked 3 rooms and each room was unique in design, furniture and style. I stayed in the Diana cottage/room, which had many pictures of Princess Diana and her... More

This property is owned by Indeco resorts who are India's only winner of Global Eco Tourism award. Nestled in a 45 acre plantation, this is a painstaking effort to conserve heritage and recreate best of british lifestyle of 18th century. It is so unique that among the 70 odd units , no two units are same. In a forest like... More

It is a nice property to spend your weekends.Situated close to the lake,which is the heart of Yercaud.Rooms are clean and the food menu are decent.Staff members are very attentive and polite.The light fittings in both the indoor and outdoor needs a special mention.

The location is good. Property old. Maintenance poor. No phone in rooms, so room service obviously cannot be rated. Not much activity in the resort. The place is on the slope so have to walk and climb stairs. The dining place is small but the food is very good. A good collection of heritage items.

This is a good place for a nice weekend break. This property is in a coffee plantation which is now more of a pepper plantation. With the silver oak trees and the pepper, the atmosphere is good. Do not expect a lot of pampering from the staff. They work very hard to ensure that the place runs. We were ok... More
