My experience with Sterling Resorts at Yelagiri and Dharamshala had been great, the facilities, the hospitality..it was all a feel good factor that i decided to book Sterling resorts wherever they are present. With Fern hill resorts being fully booked, i selected Elk Hill. I arrived on Saturday, 12th October. The welcome was warm, I was given a room (610) with a good view, technically 6 floors down and all was well. We had decided to step out to have lunch, the lift was not working...temporary issue I thought, we had to climb 6 floors and I had my aged father in law with us. But then this turned out to be a constant problem, we had to climb 6 floors every time we had to go out. With a baby and an aged man with us, this was no joke. The power also went out every morning, leaving the bathrooms in pitch darkness. This was consistent as well throughout our stay. If this is a regular problem, there should be power back up plans like the other Sterling resorts or atleast emergency lights available for the guests. During check out, I pointed this out, but the people had a don't care attitude which pissed me off. The staff were definitely not as warm as the other locations. All the pains taken to ensure that the guests had a good time, the events, the cultural show..etc were all masked by the inconvenience caused due to the power cuts and the attitude while check out. I would still recommend other Sterling locations to others but not Elk Hill.
