“Old world charm with new age amenities”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

I spent an extended weekend with my family here and was pleasantly surprised at the restored Anglo Indian Bungalows on a 70 acre property. For starters, the place is not perfect! Each room has its character and its imperfection and that's what makes the experience unique. The management (Ind Deco Hotels) has taken pains to ensure that the original theme and most of the character of the place from circa 1850 is maintained. Of course, new age trappings like TV, fridge and geysers are provided. What I really loved about the place is the fact that they have collected an eclectic bunch of all items that are either antique or priceless or both. I liked the arc lights, fans, and desks from Modern theaters that was a very popular movie production house in the 50s.The resort has 85 rooms and I was told that no two rooms are unique. I personally checked out a few unoccupied rooms and was amazed at how each room has its own character!

Apart from the effort to retain the character of the building, the service is also not too bad. Although, please be forewarned that things happens in mountain time :) 5 minutes will take 15, but overall the relaxed and unhurried pace helps the guest more at ease.The food is really good and if you have the time to plan, please order off the 'Dorai Menu' which requires a 24 hour advance prep time. A quick glance through the menu left me convinced that this was worth trying. The breakfast buffet is decent and quite a steal at Rs 175 or USD $ 3.5 for unlimited helpings of eggs, toast, some local dishes like Idli, pongal, puri etc.

Location is great! Quite close to the lake, but isolated from the hum drum.Also, Yercaud as a hill station is relatively unspoilt compared to Ooty or Kodaikanal. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Inquire if the management has plans to host a conference/meeting of some sort. We were annoyed by th...

Yercaud in itself doesn't offer much to do so its best to stay at a nice place. The resort was beautiful and well maintained. The room had glass windows so you could look at the forests at night. Room was large with antique-style furniture. A combination of heritage and contemporary.

Bit expensive.. both room tariff as well as the restaurant but good food and good serivce.

The hotel is almost on the banks of the famous Yercaud lake. Very calm and clean atmosphere. The rooms are just surrounded by trees and green shrubs. The rooms are situated at various levels on a slope of about 60 feet. Food is good. The staff are courteous.
Spacious car parking. The rooms are so much in natural atmosphere that there is a notice on each room requesting us to live with the insects and the birds and do not try detroying them as we the humans have encroached their dwelling place. Nice place to totally relax.

Room Tip: Elderly people can choose rooms near the dining hall level to avoid climbing steps for food

About four hours relaxed drive from Bangalore city is this quaint hill station Yarcaud. The Lake Forest Hotel retains it's heritage look and feel. The rooms are housed in individual cottages all over the property. We were lucky to get the wooden cabin which has a lovely verandah. The furniture in the rooms are tastefully selected though the toiletry and upholstery could do with a revamping. Personally i would recommend a face lift for the bathrooms..... Its all there but lacks the finish! he weather in the month of January was very pleasant in the day time to cold at night. The service at this hotel was fantastic..... Never a 'no' or 'not possible'......which kind of made up for all the have nots! The dining hall serves both buffet and ala carte meals..... Quite good in taste but limited variety! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. All in all the hotel is a great getaway for a short stay!

Room Tip: The wooden cabin is amazing and has a nice sit out too!!!
