I have stayed here 3 times since March 2013. I have reviewed the hotel after my first stay with my family and we came away mighty impressed with the hotel. Stayed again in the beginning of June 2013 and we were bit dissapointed with quality of food offered then, which I learnt later was due to the absence of the very able Exec chef, Muthu.
I again stayed towards the end of June 2013 with my kids. We really enjoyed our stay and this time we have booked the pool side room. The room is spacious with a big verandah,it has a great view of the valley, though it gets a little hot in the late evening as there is no AC. The cool Yercaud air cools the room soon as the night progresses.
I have mentioned in my first review / visit that the only shortcoming the hotel had was the absence of a gym and the monkey menace. Sure enough this time there is a gym for a good work out, though sparsely equipped. The GM Mr. Sheriff and his team actually listens/heeds to their guest's feed back and actually do something to make it happen.. Hats off to the team. I wonder how they will sort out problem number two!
The activities they organize in the evenings at the amphitheater are also very good fun.
I have again already booked rooms in the same hotel for our next vacation.
