We were very pleasantly surprised by the cool climes of Yercaud especially coming from Chennai in the middle of summer. The other good thing about Yercaud is the accessibility. Just 45 minutes or so from Salem unlike a Kodai or Ooty.
The Resort has a mix of rooms. The older ones, cottages 2, 3, 4 and 5, face the plantation and can be quite lonely for city dwellers. The good point is the privacy it offers. The newer rooms, starting from 6, 7 onwards are 'better' located and probably have better toilets too, with shelves et al. Not that the other toilets are bad, all of them are clean, but some of them do not have facility to keep soap, toiletries...
The food is very good. Though breakfast could do with a little imagination and is generally idlis, dosas, bread, scrambled eggs...
The pool was not functional. But the staff can organize a bonfire and also put up a BBQ on request.
The resort is certainly good value for money.
