Default Good Hotels in Yelagiri Hills

Hi All,

We are planning to visit Yelagiri Hills for August 15 long weekend. If any one who had been to Yelagiri Hills can suggest few good places to stay and also about places to see while we are there.

Thanks,
Muralisk

Murali, pls do a search for Yelagiri, right here on TBHP. We have had atleast 2 outings there, and there's a lot of information.

Any good restaurants in Yelagiri ? The last time I visited about 2 years ago there was hardly any good place to eat there - especially on a weekday.

There is a hotel called Landmark, which also has a restaurant.
Decent place for both and to eat (given the fact that there very few hotels).

Here goes my choice of restaurants in yelagiri.

1. Silent waters resort - resort and food
2. Sterling resorts

Apart from these two there is hardly any other place where u get good food

The food overall in Yelagiri is bad. I had gone there with a bunch of friends for 2 nights and 3 days in April. We stayed in Hotel Landmark and the rooms were pretty good. No complaints.

The food though was mediocre at best. They didnt have half the items on the menu. We tried the buffet one day and it was bad. Everytime I've gone to Yelagiri for a drive, we've had lunch (buffet) at Landmark and it has been consistently bad. I never had a problem because I was there for the drive! Not the food!

We also tried many different restaurants nearer to the city and all were mediocre.

Yelagiri and Hotel Landmark is a good place to go for a day or two but dont expect great food.

Yup! That's about perfect for Yelagiri! We actually went for a so-called trek one morning too.

GRT nature trails (Sky rocca) is one of the best hotels in Yercaud, if you're going with family. Even Grand palace Yercaud is a decent hotel for a stay with family. Not too sure about the food now since I last visited around 1.5 years back, but I can vouch for the quality of service at both of those hotels.
