There is a Club Mahindra property "Lake Forest" there. The food was ok at their restaurant. This is very near to the lake.

I have been there with the Civic, and except for a huge hump on NH7 newly put up near and upcoming toll gate, its a pleasure drive.

Do take the loop road once in yercaud, its nice

Seems like there are many tbhpians who are planing a trip to Yercaud around Apr 10-12. I am one too! Should we plan a mini-tbhp meet there?

Why not ? Am yet to get confirmed bookings though, let's regroup once we all finalise our plans.

Facing the same problem, have got names of a few more hotels in Yercaud but am not sure at all about how good the accomodation is. May give Yercaud a miss simply because we did'nt plan in advance well enough !

Hi Tempelhof,

Nice pics! Where did you stay - is it the 'bungalow' shown in the pics? How good is it?

Thanks,

Yes, we stayed in one of the 'bunglows' - it is a large bedroom with a sitout and other standard amenities.

The place is called 'Lake Forest Hotel', a 18th century building about 5 min walk from the Lake.

This place is a Club Mahindra affiliate.

Place is good - food needs improvement.
