“Overrated average hotel”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

I had set my expectations high after reading so many 5 rated reviews of this hotel, but I've to say I was not so impressed. We had 3 luxury homes but there were so many problems in reality. Read on..

The good:
Luxury rooms are very spacious. You get 1 bedroom with balcony, 2 bathrooms with 1 bathtub, a living room with a convertible sofa/bed, microwave oven, mini refrigerator, kettle, tea bags, etc.
The crew is very politely spoken.
Quick check-in/check-out at reception.

The bad:
Bathrooms are not clean enough. Commode and bathtub had brown stains, there were cobwebs. All in all, bathrooms are no where near luxury.
Telephone did not work in one of our rooms
Sofa+Bed in the living room had brown stains on it. Yuck!
Food at the restaurant is not up to the mark.
The night we stayed, there was another huge group of people near the camp fire, who were partying with extremely loud music. This was very disturbing to other guests so the management shouldn't allow this.

Because of all the negative points listed above, I'm compelled to rate this as just average. But there is a lot of potential for improvement with little or no additional investment.

Stayed here during the weekend and had a very pleasant experience

Location - The resort is located almost at the top of a small hill and overlooks the valley (not the Salem - Yercaud side but the opposite side). While the view from the restaurant is amazing, the luxury rooms do not get much of a view. The delux rooms are still better off as they get to see the lake and the surrounding hills. The entire experience was good but not great as there is some construction going on near the resort and these sounds interfere with the peace and quiet of area.

Rooms - Stayed in the delux room and was very happy with lighting, space and the overall feel of the room. The rooms are built to accommodate 4 Adults and even then it does not feel very cramped.The pull out sofa in the living room turn into a very comfortable bed for 2 when needed. The bathroom is clean and functional and the rooms do have AC but not room heaters :) If you have booked delux rooms, then try to get the rooms on the first floor as they offer better view of the valley below

Amenities - The resort is very basic and has a restaurant and a small play area, both of which lookout over the valley. Car parking is a big problem as the approach to the resort is steep and reaching the reception or restaurant from the resort gate is a lot of 1st gear grunt. Would suggest you park the car next to security and use the golf carts for moving around the resort.

Food - After reading the other reviews here, I was mentally prepared for just about OK food. But the food was good. Had lunch here and the roti, sabji and fried rice were well cooked and had a bit of flavor in them. The breakfast was not all that great and at Rs 170 per person, they need to add more options and include some eggs in the mix. Else it was just idli, vada, upma, set dosa and some very bad grape juice! Also ordered tea in the room and the service was pretty quick if you considered the fact that the distance from restaurant to room is quiet a bit.

Overall - A good place for a quick weekend getaway but if you looking at spending 2-3 days soaking in the peace and quiet of the hills, would recommend that you try Grand Palace as its right on top of the hill where Golden Nest is located. On the whole a very value for money place as 4 adults can be accommodated in a room very easily

Room Tip: Try to get a delux room in the 1st floor as it offers better view of the valley and lake

It was a pleasant stay with friendly staff from the Resorts. Room is spacious enough and food was good too. People from the town is also friendly from shop keepers to cab drivers. Overall it's a memorable stay. I would recommend the Resort to my friends.

I visited with my friends, amazing locality, great ambience and nearby all tourist spots.
I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast & excellent service frm their staff, though they deserve a 5 star, not well maintained restroom and their poor lunch holds me back.
Grt service will visit once again and will recommend my finds.

Nice accommodation with good in-home facilities. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Go for luxury villas, their view is good and very near to restaurant. Food menu is very limited. It's a very decent place for newly weds and families who want to spend time in peace.
