“Trip to Yercaud”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

We planned a trip to Yercaud for a weekend. When we tried to book room @ GRT Nature Trails, we were told that there are no rooms available. So we were very reluctant and then without any choice we booked at the grand palace and started our journey from Chennai to Yercaud. The roads were simply amazing and it was a good drive from Chennai to Yercaud. Once we hit the ghat roads, i found that the road to Yercaud are maintained very good and was able to drive really easy and also my daughter enjoyed the drive up the hills where there were a lot of monkeys. As said at the last hair pin bend, we say GRT Nature trails and we were awestuck on the way the hotel has been built. But alas that we did not get a room there. Then we proceeded to grand palace. As such the hotel was not bad, but the room which they gave us was facing the car park, which we felt really bad. Hence in a days time, we called Mr. Sheriff of GRT and he was so kind enough to us to provide a room in GRT. So the next day morning, we just buzzed off from grand palace and checked in at GRT. The time we entered the hotel, we found that the hotel is really well maintained and had a very pleasant nature. We loved the room which was given to us. the staff was kind and very helpfull. The stay @ GRT was excellent. We fell in love with the place and again we are planning to go on a trip back to Yercaud to spend a weekend. Thanks to all the staff who took good care of us and our special thanks to Mr. Sheriff who was very kind enough to meet us in person too. This was an amazing trip and now we are planning for another one in December. Hope to check the place again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but the pool view room are much bigger....

The hotel is situated in an ideal location and blends with nature. The reception is prompt and very helpful. The valley view rooms are great to spend time and relax. The food is of good quality and of adequate variety. The room service is friendly and courteous. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Valley view rooms with viewing glass on the floor are great.

My home in Yercaud is GRT Nature trails Room No : 402. My Sincere thanks to Mr Sheriff for making our trip a memorable.

Room Tip: If you love nature please try Room No : 402

My second visit to yercaud with my family, but first experience with GRT during last weekend it was amazing. Their service is extremely different than others (kind and fast). Mr. Thiyagu took us for trekking to nature coffee plantation and show us the wonderful view point, our thanks once again to him. We were in Panorama the glass floor room (please experience that) no word to say about it, cleanliness with the high class standard. Come to food part, fantastic view form the restaurant with fabulous spread in the buffet in the hill station is superb. We spend most of our time in the valley view terrace with artificial turf neatly maintain. Thank you for the entire team to make me and family happy.

Room Tip: Pent House or Panorama

It was around the second week of September that me and my wife thought of going for a weekend vacation. During our planning we thought about GRT Nature trails. With no waiting i immediately called up the hotel for a Room booking. For my surprise i found that there were no rooms available for the following week.

Mr Saravanan with whom i was conversing about my booking said the only available dates are 8th and 9th of October. Go-ahead was my word. Further the day while i was conversing with my wife I was sharing about the experience of booking was. She advised to hold on, its worth...

Came the day that me and my Wife packed up and drove down. I was thrilled observing the beauty of God's creation. we reached yercaud ad it was amazing to take the 21 hair pin bends which i thoroughly enjoyed.

As we entered the place, there it was that i was waiting to see and know, what made these guys to make me wait for. The entry itself was amazing another thrill as we get into the hotel. There they were waiting and receiving all the guests checking - in. it was great the reservation went smooth as my requirement was, no waiting or anything. As we were checked-in, the welcome drink arrived as we finished we were led into the room which was all set for us to have lunch and crash for a while.

Later in the evening we took walk around the hotel and it was amazing. The skywalk was so good to be as the temperature started going down and the view of salem was like an array of stars just below us. from there we went to the pool and the game room there was more fun awaiting us. were we played pool and table tennis. At round 7 there was an entertainment of magic show. As we finished with this, we went to the restaurant where we had a lovely evening. The restaurant was full with people from the hotel as well as people from outside. The buffet was we layed and the staff where courties and very attentive. The chefs behind the live counter were well dressed with spotless Chef coat and was cooking some yummy dishes.

The following day i met with Mr Saravanan and the General Manager Mr Sheriff and shared my experience of the past and present. after the meeting we did some site visit we enjoyed the spots to visit as advised by Mr Sheriff. The day came to an end with dinner served at the room. the following day we had our breakfast and checked-out and headed back to Chennai were we live in.

i would like to extend my Thanks to Mr Sheriff and Mr Saravanan for making our weekend in a very pleasurable stay with enjoyment. Hats off to you guys.

One simple advice to all travelers to yercaud when you visit yercaud, try staying at Nature trail. worth staying there. You have to book a few weeks ahead for your trip. But worth a stay......


Happy traveling everybody...

Had visited yercaud during the first week of october.
It was a long weekend and was very difficult to get a booking in any hotel.
This places is usually very crowded during the weekends and check in process is a rush.
We were pleasantly surprised with the spacious, clean room, comfortable bed, the manageable bathroom.
The best part of this place is the view from the rooms, especially the nice big french windows which let you into a grassed sit out with the view of the valley.
Though after repeated insistence (over the phone couple of times and on arrival) they placed me in the exact same room with a tree blocking the view.
Had some niggles with the shower, water heater, DVD player, but all were sorted out immediately.
I loved the open area, we sat through the evening and enjoyed the weather, peace, mist, lights of the city below...
The restaurant gets really crowded and noisy cause there are not many options to eat in Yercaud and its better to stay indoors, but the food was really nice, excellent choice on the buffet breakfast and dinner.
Walk down to the pool is really inviting but you get disappointed by the size of it, its a great view and worth a short dip to relax.
The recreation area is worth a visit when you are there to reinvest on you long forgotten talent in snooker, Table tennis, carrom and chess.
Check in at 12:30pm and Check out was early at 10Am so it was a disappointment to push myself out of bed early on a sunday morning.
Overall it was a great weekend to remember. Had an awesome relaxing weekend. Wish I didn't have to leave.
5 points to the sit out, bed and food.

Room Tip: Pick the panoramic view room higher up. Book in advance if its a weekend.
