Relaxing place to go with kids and family.A nice hill station and a good resort experience. We did not move around but enjoyed the resort for 2days. You can go a trail round the resort which itself is good.It was worthwhile to to spend there.We hired a car from B'lore.

Decided to chose this Hotel for our 2 night stay in Yercaud mainly because of the excellent reviews in tripadvisor. And of course it turned out to be a pretty good experience. Checked into GRTon 28th Nov for 2 nights with my family (wife & daughter), chose the Panorama view room (Room No: 106) which had an awesome view of the valley from balcony apart from its unique glass floor in a small portion of the room... I hadn't done any advanced booking since it was mid week (check-in on Wed) and I came to know from hotel reception earlier that rooms are pretty much available. Check-in was smooth, room was pretty much spacious, clean and neat. Bathroom was also quite big and clean.. The location of the hotel and its surroundings are pretty much scenic, highlight being the famed skywalk and the view points from the balcony.. Early Mornings and evenings were quity chilly with temperatures ranging between12-15C and a walk around the hotel surroundings including the skywalk was a superb experience!! One thing I would like to highlight here is the attitude of the entire hotel staff who were always willing to help us with smiles and wishes every single time they met. The hotel has a nice swimming pool (with pictuersque views), recreation room (with fuzball, TT and Pool table) and a nice little children's area equipped with some adventure stuff like hanging ladders etc.. My 3 & half year old daughter enjoyed every bit of the stay her delights being the pool and the children's area. Complimentary breakfast was included in our stay and boy, the food was really tasty especially the south indian fare. We tried dinner as well and I would seriously recommend to try out their Sizzlers which was just awesome.. On suggestion from the chef we tried out the Brownie Sizzler with vanilla icecream as topping for the desert and it was just out of the world!! .. All in all though Yercaud itself has little to offer in terms of sight-seeing the stay in GRT Nature trails made our stay in this nice little sleepy city all the more enjoyable.. Small concern I had was with the wi-fi connectivity though I used this only once, the network was pretty bad. The hotel is located at 20th Hair Pin bend and is hardly a KM from the Emerald lake which is like centre of the town.

Room Tip: Would recommed travelers to choose panorama view rooms as they are slightly bigger, comfortable and...

Stayed at the hotel for a day,absolutely wonderful experience.Since there are nothing to do in yercaud the hotel need to be good if not we will regret for the trip.If it is GRT there is no disappointment,The only suggestion would be they can increase the size of Salem rocks bar and poor cellphone coverage.

Absolutely enjoyed it,Highly recommended.

Your suggestion of expanding the bar is right on time as we are already in the plan of renovating our restaurant and expanding the bar. Also we are working out with Airtel to boost their signals near our resort to enhance easy communication.

I stayed in this hotel for a night and had a brief drinks with friends after my wedding. This is a good place if you have your own transport.

I liked the black stone building, the design of the rooms and interiors are pleasant for a good change.

Though there is very little to do in Yercaud, it is worth a drive around the estates.

Room Tip: Get a room with the mountain view.

We chose to visit this resort for a quick weekend getaway from Bangalore and we were not disappointed at all! Starting with the amazing and picturesque highway all the way to Salem the entire trip went off without a hiccup.

As soon as we reached the hotel we had a smooth and swift check in and were escorted to our rooms. On the way we crossed the famed 'sky walk' which is the main attraction of the hotel. It is basically a pathway with a glass floor which looks down at the steep drop of the cliff where the hotel is situated. It also gives an amazing view of the plains down below and the town of Salem.

We were booked in the panorama view rooms and the rooms were really nice. The room had a sexy balcony with the full view of the valley. In addition to that, the room also had a section with glass flooring which was quite unique i thought. The bathroom also had a clear window and a glass flooring so that you can enjoy the views while you are in the shower!

Food was good but not great, but i guess the location and the ambiance of the hotel makes up for it. There is a nice swimming pool and the recreation area also has a TT table, carrom board and fusbol table. Staff is generally courteous and helpful.

The only improvements i would suggest is that the glass flooring of the sky walk needs to be cleaned. We found it quite dirty this time and were hardly able to see anything below, thereby compromising on the effect. Also there was loud music playing by the bonfire in the evening which we thought was disturbing the peace of the place, but apart from this...we loved our stay!

Room Tip: Try to choose the rooms which have a view of the valley

I loved the placeeeeeeeeee and had an amazing vacation during the gandhi jayanthi holiday . The property is beautiful and the highlight is the view from the salem heights restaurtan pathway We had some activities for the families too .Food at salem Heights is worth mentioning as we did have a nice time eating all times there. Infact , we were tired searcing a good place outside to dine when we were on a sight seeing visit and came back to Salem Heights only to have our lunch. The view from salem heights is awesome and made me feel closer to sky . Infact , i took a pic posing to touch the sky ...Inspite the cold weather, my 3 year old son jumped into the pool Kids had a lovely time there as they have made some space out for jumping pads & lot of games like rope walking etc . We also had the option of choosing some DVDs. I caught up on a nice movie that a missed long back .A perfect way to spend a short holiday . Yercaud view was breathtaking and GRT Nature Trails -thought i would prefer to call it Sky rocca rockssssssssss!!!
