“Stay in this resort if you are in Yelagiri”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Yelagiri is a little known hill station near Vellore. There is not much crowd or shops and hence, an ideal place to unwind. A good place to stay is essential as you spend most of your time in your hotel / resort.

We liked Sterling resort as it has a good and clean swimming pool and indoor games table tennis, chess and carom. Buffet in the restaurant is well spread, but the taste is average. However, if you order food, you will like the taste. Staff are very courteous, helpful and friendly. If you are travelling with family, this is the best place to stay in Yelagiri!

Room Tip: Take a room with view to swimming pool

Sterling resorts property was very good, We also visited Murugan temple which is a stone's throw from th e hotel. Visited Nature park, did trekking at the swamimalai hills, Punganoor lake where we did some boating, and Mughal gardens .

Sterling resorts was very neat with prompt service. Their spa was yet to come up. Food was quite decent.

This is a nice sterling property in Yelagiri. It is little expensive if booked during weekends. This is purely a hotel and not a resort by any standards. They rooms are nice and the farming views from the balconies are a visual treat. The bathrooms are clean but small. The hotel has some entertainment for kids like a jumping pad and a play room etc. The swimming pool is also nice. The location is pretty easy to find with the help of google maps. They don't have a parking inside and the cars needs to be parked outside the hotel on the slope. The staff is very friendly and they try and go the extra mile. We want for a friends anniversary and despite no flowers available in entire town they helped us with decoration with towels and candles and heart decorations. The only bad part is the food taste is a disappointment.

This is not really a resort as you may expect, but in Yelagiri, I will say this is one of the best.
The rooms are pretty good, not just mine, I checked another 3 rooms in 2 floors, they all were same, good. There is as such nothing much in Yelagiri to see and do, so you will expect your staying place has some fun activites and good rooms to relax. I would say I got that. They have indoor games (TT, chess...) and a few outdoor (Archery (charged) and Basket single court), a small open Gym, a decent Swimming pool for kids and adult (4.5ft). Restaurent was good, food and service both, but room service was at times upsetting (its a weekend occupancy planning issue as I can see). All staff were very cordial and helpful at all times. What I could not really accept is the overall cost of stay, food & service is bit over priced I guess. Overall I would still prefer this over other certain places, for lots of pros.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that are back side of the hotel or to the right side. These rooms have a very pleasant...

Despite being a very frequent vacationer, I was truly surprised to find such a calm heaven of tranquility just 1/2 an hour away from the plans. The room given was extremely spacious and food was Great - perfect for a relaxing holiday. The staff was very cordial and accomodating despite the language barrier. Specially Mr. Uttam & Chef Hussain went out of the way to help us out.
The only hiccup was that their Wifi was on the blink - getting On & Off periodically. They said it would be OK in a few days. The staff however helped us to make further reservations on their own computer.
Overall a Great experience.

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms are better

I would say this was our best stay with Sterling....The food is wonderful. Its a nice lively place, where kids are extremely busy with a whole lot of activities. Trampoline was the major attraction for my kid. We really liked the idea of one minute game competition, where the adults and kids were all involved. Its so much better than having noisy dance music which normally a lot of resorts resort to over the weekends. The staff is very helpful and courteous.

Room Tip: Its very important to have Guest's car parking within the resort premises, you cannot expect the...
