“HOLIDAY AT THE REGENT - The best in my lifetime”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I stayed for two nights at The Regent Hill Side Villa & Resort. Wow! What a feeling. It was the best hoilday I've had in my life time. The interiors of the Hotel are simply mind blowing. The collection of antiques and artifacts is simply unbelievable.

The service of the boys is so warm and caring. They don't make you feel you are in a hotel. You only feel you are at your own home. They make the most homely tasting food - be it continental, thai, indian or anything that they serve you.

The owner Dr.Vishu Kaliappa the friendliest man that you can meet. He personally looked after us so well that we felt he had known us for years. He helped us with all the sightseeing and took us to place even unknown to many locals.

We have decided to be there twice a year hereafter. It's so relaxing!

Room Tip: Constantia is an awesome room for the best of sleep

It was an exceptional experience staying at Regent Hill Side Resort. We were received with great hospitality and were treated as relatives, rather than as guests. We enjoyed the atmosphere over there, which was great for a typical peaceful excursion. Mr. Vishu Kaliappa has filled the spot with wonderful collections all that will behold your attention. If I’m to stay at Yercaud again, I couldn’t make a better choice than Regent Hill Side Resort!

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally excellent! You can positively opt for the available one!

It was an overall memorable experience with a fabulous team in an heritage atmosphere. We stayed for 5 days and occupied 3 rooms there. It was an entertaining experience right from the welcome till we were send off.
Not an iota of change from the way we were received till the time we were send off. 'Sweet Rascal' is the Restaurant there. Madhesh leads the kitchen along with Saravanan, Shekar and a few more support staff. Right from taking orders till it is been served all we can see & experience is the passion and the courteousness. A big Thanks to all of them for making us feel @ home.
The only suggestion from my side is to improve on the waiting time in dining otherwise it was an mind blowing experience ..............

It is an excellent place to stay, the care they show on each guest is well appreciable. All the staffs working there are very friendly and caring, especially Mr. Vishu Kaliappa. He was very creative person and has lot and lot of ideas. He spent time with all the guests individually and has lot of things to share. The resort has very excellent collection of old photos, bonsai trees and etc. This resort is not a place for just a night stay. It will more worth if you spent some time in the resort itself.
Each room has its own unique interiors and collections, its really worth for the money we spent. The food served is very good and hygienic.

This was an unplanned trip. I could not get Hotels in Kodai and Ooty and hence Yercaud was our thrid choice. After reading the reviews here, I made a call and confirmed availability. The moment we walked into the 7 acre property, we knew this wasn't any run of the mill Hotel. Almost everything about this place has been already said. Yercaud used to be poor man's Ooty, but I can say with conviction that Mr. Vishu Kaliappa single handedly turned Yercaud into Heaven for us. No 5-star Hotel can match the experience here. It is simply unique. Vishu is working on developing this property further. I will be checking on him come summer.

We had booked for two nights at the regent. The place was soooooo addictive that we extended for one more night. The collection of antiques was mind blowing. The owner mr.vishu kaliappa awesome man - he's a walking encyclopedia. Hats off to his unique design. It's the best place I've been to in my life

I would strongly recommend The Regent Hill Side for its great hospitality and for one of the best hosts i have ever seen in Vishu. Vishu is extremely friendly and will make you feel special.

The place is a heritage place and has been very well done by Vishu. He has decorated the house with a lot of collectibles and has tried to retain the old Colonial look.

Room Tip: Please request the owner - Vishu Kaliappa - to get you permission to see 'The Retreat' next...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This is the only heritage, boutique, museum, designer, art-deco hotel and resort in Yercaud. Its ambiance and surroundings are breathtaking as it has stunning views of a working coffee plantation. The rooms have individual sit outs for every room and also private lawns. The food is awesome and you can choose the place to have your meal subject to conditions prevailing - either in the alfresco dining restaurant "SWEET RASCAL" or on one of the spacious lawns or choose to have a candle light dinner in the middle of the estate. You can also just relax sipping an exotic mock-tail under the huge Jumbulum tree in the Frangipani garden with all its fragrance galore. It's a place with a sense of serendipity, style and a lot of detailed history. Its ability to truly relax the weary and fatigued traveler is truly fantastic. Much Emphasis is placed on its uniqueness. Traditional perceptions of 5 star luxury are ignored, yet we maintain a spirit of luxury that most hotels can only aspire to. We pride ourselves on the subtle attention to detail which is not immediately noticeable but people can only remember when it is not there. You would probably feel you are only at your friends home, this I say so because you could even walk straight into our kitchen to see us cook. I continue to look for the best of services to provide to the guests, with an emphasis on finding the extraordinary and not the ordinary, a quest which began as a hobby 3 years ago but which is now a passion to bring out the best in India. ... more   less
