Try this
Yercaud Hotels, Yercaud Resorts, MM Holiday Inn yercaud

I stayed there when we went to Yercaud, nice place... Bit small place, but good enough place to stay. Food is great here.

*****@vik0728 it is definitely going to be a family outing or my girlfriend will give me a beating of my life.She is already ticked off for going with my friend to the nagarhole meet.*****

Rocky Now we're talking eh!!!

On a Serious note Count Me in for the trip irrespective of the lodging place coz I just wanna get out and Drive!! Since my main priority is the drive and meet with the fellow bhpians, nominal rooms should do just fine for us. Me and My Wifey will be at the HSR CCD by 6am.

Now as Raj has referred to the new place, would you contact them Rocky or should me and any of us help you with this??

@KR raj thanks for the info but unfortunately they are also jam packed.

I have called about 10-15 hotels and resorts till now, but all seem to be jam packed.

EDIT:Guys i have tried calling all the hotels on the following links and all are jam packed

http://www.indiahotelreview.com/destination_yercaud.htm

http://domestichotels.yatra.com/hote...m=1&from=YATRA

Any other suggestions anyone.

(PLAN B)As a last resort we can find Good rooms in salem which is about 33km from yercaud.

Guys since we would have families tagging along, as long as the rooms are descent enough, I guess none of us should really have a problem.

Personally, I am only looking at the Drive & Time we Bhpians would have together.

I am ok with Salem as long as all you guys are. So Rocky, please count me in!

Rocky - Good to see you guys are rocking!

My suggestion will be instead of staying in Salem (or for that matter in an adjustable place rather than a good place), you could postpone your trip by some days...its of no use to go to Yercaud and stay in Salem. ( You will miss the entire charm of a NIGHT in YERCAUD ).

Also they have a good local festival in May which you could check out if interested and coincide your journey accordingly.

Sky Roca could be a nice place.

Good to see your spirit vikram. Salem is our last resort. Fellow bhpians are googling as i type this I know atleast one other person who is doing it right now and lets hope for the best.

I already called them DD they are also full. The reason for having the trip on 1st and 2nd is its a holiday for most people and its a weekend. The dates of travel does not make a big difference to me(Perks of being unemployed) But others will have work so.

Whew i did not realise that finding rooms in yercaud is going to be such a task. Even when trying to book 1week in advance.

@Raj.barcode sorry for the bad news but hotel shevaroys is full. So trying to find other hotels as of now.

Rocky great going.
As Vik mentioned any decent rooms will do as girlfriends/wifeys are also coming.

I guess Salem would be Ok for everyone but we would miss out on the night beauty of Yercaud.And trust me you cannot enjoy during the night in Salem at least.

By anychance do we have the option of going there and then finding hotels as many of their telephone numbers would not be listed but yet they might be decent hotels.Just thinking out loud.Can be wrong though.

I was searching it, but couldn't find any contacts for home stays. Tried asking it from Sterllings hotel guys they were only suggesting other hotels and they too are booked.

Thanks @Alter, U can imagine how desperatly I wanna get out and most importantly drive away with fellow bhpians!!

Rocky if Salem is just a cool drive away from Yercaud, then we might as well stay there and drive down to Yercaud early morning.
Unless as Alter mentioned, nights are really not good at Salem..what do you actually mean by this buddy ??

I think Salem will not be as bad option as we are thinking, its max 40 mins to 1 hr drive(29 km) from the hills, and as parent will not know we can stay longer time during night and then come back to Salem, what say guys?

And there are many hotels on the way who might not be listed to going there and checking may also be an option, I did it in Chikmagalur during 25th Dec, and got rooms, hope this is a bigger place than Chikmagalur and its not 25th Dec.

I am ok with staying at salem. And as asdon has said we can stay out late in yercaud before coming down to salem at night even salem would have cooled down.So we'll have the best of both worlds, Salem heat and yercaud cooling. If we are luck while coming down to salem we might be able to spot bisons on the ghat roads at night.
