Great Trails Yercaud by GRT Hotels
Ranked #4 of 29 Hotels in Yercaud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2012

Visited this property a few months back with my family. IMO, it is reasonably priced for the facilities offered and good for a short break.

Pros:
Rooms are nice and spacious, the ones I stayed in had a nice sit-out area with artificial lawn and offered excellent view of the Salem town, especially at night.
Decent facilities including a swimming pool.
Courteous staff
Free wi-fi

Cons:

The noise from lawn atop the rooms can be disturbing if there is a party going on with loud music.

As mentioned in another review, restaurant can get crowded and then it takes ages to get your food. The buffet breakfast was good, though.

Overall, there is nothing much to do at yercaud, hardly any place worth visiting (no wonder it is aptly called the poor man's ooty) so probably suitable for only a short trip.
Also, try going on weekdays if possible since the resort is not very big in size and gets crowded on weekends.

Rating Good 3.5/5

Room Tip: my advise would be to the lower floor rooms rather than the ones directly below the lawns. The view...

The rooms are good and roomy. The problem is with the restaurant salem heights. Its very small that it can't even handle full in house and its open to general public. So it gets very very noisy with full capacity. Idea of having a peaceful relaxed holiday goes for a toss. Try to make alternate arrangements for food at yercaud which is still 5 km away. Check out for all rooms are at 10 am n front desk is not equipped with sufficient staff to handle all the guests. Be prepared to wait.

My Fiancee and I had visited this place in the month of february for this valentine's day and the experience can only be termed memorable. From the property to the people, from food to the facilities, everything was splendid. Though Yercaud as a place is not very exciting, it didnt bother us as we were just looking for a quiet weekend. The property is located on the 20th hair Pin bend, easy to locate is the first thing that came to my mind. Check-In was smooth. The place itself was quiet and green. A spic-and-span Valley View room was waiting for us. The view of the valley from the balcony was breathtaking although we did miss the lawn. The hotel website does show a lawn in the balcony for valley view rooms, MISLEADING !! Something that the authorities should make a note of. The Television was working and we enjoyed watching the Indian cricket team play the Sri Lankans :) The bed was comfortable and the bathrooms were tidy, spacious and equipped with the necessary amenities. The Geyser could have worked better though. It took a very long time to heat the water. There was a mini bar in the room which we did not make use of. The Food was the best part. It was of good quality and really tasty but, too expensive. We had our lunch @Salem Heights(their restaurant) once we checked in and decided to have dinner elsewhere primarily due to their pricing. The next day's breakfast was included with the room tariff, hence we had our breakfast there. We loved it :) Wasn't buffet, but ala carte. That was a pleasant surprise. I should appreciate and thank their service. They were very courteous and served with a smile. We then wandered around the property taking photographs. I should say that property is too good when it comes to this aspect. Provides you with so many beautiful frames to click pictures in. Checkout was also smooth with NIL hassles. We never tried their indoor games or other recreational activities. Overall, an awesome place to laze around and take rest. Yercaud as such is not the place for adventurous people. If you want to take a weekend break away from work and dont want to do anything more than just laze around, then GRT Nature Trails is the place to be in Yercaud. The reason I've rated 4 and not 5 is because of the pricing(Both food and the stay).

Room Tip: All rooms face the valley, but go for the ones which have lawns in the balcony. They are a little ex...

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your review posted on Trip Advisor. We are delighted by your positive feedbacks, also noted the issues you have highlighted with concern. Some of the valley view rooms are not having the big balcony but a small sitout overlooking the valley. However, we shall mention this in our website.

This property is a average property. But if you compare it with other properties in Yercaud, its the better one. Its on the 20th hairpin bend. Location is good. Staff is helpful. But the tariff is too high if you talk about the experience. The entire experience is of the nature itself, hotel has invested least to make an experience. In the name of experience, the lighing levels in the room are very low. Only 3 yello dim bulbs. Some areas like stair cases are not very safe for small kids. If you have a 3-5 year old kid, please accompany him on the staircases. They are made from welded iron rods and have huge gaps in-between them from where a small kid can easily fall down. The sky walk is more of a marketing gimmick. Nothing great about it. The glass floor of sky walk is now full of scratches and you cant see much. Its more of boasting and less of experience on the skywalk. Food was very good. But very costly also. Complimentary breakfast spread was excellent. In the entire resort, the grass is artificial. You cant really feel the nature except for the view. If feels bad walking on the plastic grass early in the morning. Its like walking on a treadmill in the morning rather than morning walk. THe pool is isolated. Looks little scary in the night. Parking facility is good. Waiters would behave like typical waiters. More than 2 people would run to take your luggage with an intention to get a fat tip. Though there is no harm in giving tips, but people staring at you makes you uncomfortable. They wont allow monkeys to come in the resort. There is a old gentleman with an Airgun to shoove away the monkeys. I would rate it as an average resort. The value for money is least. One time visit is ok. Not worth visiting twice.

Room Tip: Room No. 403, 404. They are part of Panaromic View Rooms

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your review posted in Trip Advisor. We are delighted by your positive feedbacks, also noted the issues you have highlighted with concern and assure you that the respective corrective measures are taken with no time spared to ensure the same never reoccur. We are in the process of replacing the glasses in sky walk. We tried with natural lawn in the terrace but due to uncertain weather condition at Yercaud, we found it very difficult to maintain the same and switched over to artificial grass at least to give a green look around.

Look forward to have you stay with us again and hope to exceed your expectations by truly demonstrating our service philosophy of “The promise of More"...
