Great Trails Yercaud by GRT Hotels
Ranked #4 of 30 Hotels in Yercaud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We planned a group tour to Yercaud in August-2012, with about 5 families with kids. I wasn't so sure when one of my friend recommended that we check into this place. But that was soon to change, for good!

We drove down to Yercaud from Bangalore, and the drive was fairly smooth. They do check for pollution clearance of your vehicle just prior to entering the hills, so make sure you have the papers with you.

The hotel is the first one located on the road leading up the hill, just after you clear most of the hair pin bends. The reception was well staffed, though we did have to wait a little due to the rush and the fact that we were quite a few in numbers.

The first surprise was that due to some issue, they upgraded our basic rooms to the pool view ones free of charge. These rooms were awesome, with a huge attached terrace!

You do need to be wary of monkeys though, and they keep reminding you to make sure you keep the doors towards the valley locked when not in the room to avoid monkeys entering the rooms and causing problems.

The infinity pool is fantastic, just adjacent to the valley full of greenery. There's a bar attached to the pool, but I guess its available only in the evening. One minor complaint I have is about the access path leading to the pool, which is a series of steps.

The buffet is awesome, with a huge spread across the table and spread across two floors. However, on crowded days, you'll have to reach early to enjoy the full buffet as it typically gets over pretty early.

The best part of the hotel is the terrace and the sky walk - a glass floored bridge across the valley that provides a wonderful view of the valley below as you walk across. Not for the faint hearted though!

They even arranged a magic show in the evening, which the kids enjoyed a lot.

Overall, a lovely place to unwind for the weekend.

We stayed at GRT Nature Trails Hotel in Yercaud for a weekend. the best thing we did there was to book a Panorama View room. there was one more couple with us. we got the best rooms luckily 403 and 404, they had the best view. the rooms were interconnected which made our stay more enjoyable. the same weekend there was an event organised by a hotel which consisted of games, bonfire and bollywood dance. it make our stay more fun. at night we used to sit outside and count stars, the thing which we had not done in ages. Forgot to mention the best part, the food. the chef is excellent. people must be thinking its a bit costly but believe me its worth the each penny spent.
i give it 5 star rating in all aspects.

Room Tip: Choose Room No 403 or 404.

We choose this place after a lot of review with other good facilities in yercaud (like golden palace and shevroys etc). Went through a lot of internet reviews and finalised on this place for a weekend stay (1 day night stay) with my wife and kid (1 year) old. Though the price is slightly on the higher side when compared to others, i found the facility is awesome and scenic view is the best. There was valley side rooms pool side rooms, with individual geysers and all amenities one would expect. Food was also tasty and fresh, Complimentary breakfast was very good and lot of options available. Skywalk is highlight where you have glass floors on a bridge that gives some good view of the plains, Bonfire was arranged with music. My 1 year old kid liked the facility very much, was happy to play on the lawns, balcony and there were monkeys frequently the place, so you need to be careful. We also went to near by places like lake, view points, aquarium, deer park. for a weekend retreat this place is really apt.

We stayed @ GRT nature trails on March 9&10 in the Panaroma room. My wife and son loved the patio and the views so much incredible that they wouldnt come inside. The Lunch Buffet and the Breakfast had a good spread and was delicious. Wish they had a dinner buffet too.
My 4 year old wanted to get a snack at an odd time and the staff at the restaurant were kind enough to get some nice french fries for him.
We took help of the travel desk from GRT and got a car driven by Mr. Mahendran who helped us sight seeing. Being a resident, he knew all the good places around yercaud and he took care great of our son.

My family is definitely looking forward for another holiday @ GRT nature trails next year

Room Tip: If you are a nature lover, choose the valley view or the panaroma view rooms

Firstly this review is for all those cribbers who have complained about the price.
WHAT YOU PAY IS WHAT YOU GET.

Yes the price is high but every rupee you spend is worth. The location, the view from hotel, the food, the games, the pool, the rooms all are very good. Yercaud in itself does not have much attraction so who wish to relax at the hotel can stay here.

I wish to thank the driver who dropped us at Salem station and came to platform to give us the toy which was left by us. I truly appreciate a big thank you specially for honesty shown when even though the toy was of very small value (Rs.)

From us if possible we will make the trip again and it is worth staying in this hotel. The pastries are AMAZING ... lovely....

Room Tip: Choose room no..panorama view 404 or penthouse 304 for best views
