The Regent Hill Side is very informal, and we can accommodate most requirements for meals. Please let us know of any particular dietary requirements in advance.
Typically the food is South Indian, and therefore will contain curries. These can of course be hot or mild according to your preference, or western food can be cooked by our chef.
There is always a variety of fresh fruit, from the local market. Meals can be taken where guests want, and within reason, at times to suit guests.
Since we do not have a liquor licence, we cannot sell liquor. Reasonably good alcohol and wine is available from the liquor shop in Yercaud town and we are happy to keep this chilled for you.
There are a wide variety of walks, mainly along village roads, from The Regent Hill Side. We can advise you on the more interesting directions. The villagers are invariably friendly and welcoming.
We have some mountain bicycles, which you can borrow, at no charge. There are a large number of roads and tracks around The Regent Hill Side which provide bicycle trips, ranging from relaxed to quite arduous!
There are a variety of books, in the reception room of The Regent Hill Side. Please borrow any that you would like to read, but please leave them when you leave.
There are two housedogs, which are, hopefully, kept under control – Candy is a Harlequin Greta Dane, and Angel a Pug. If you want to take Candy on walks, he is normally very keen. I hope you will enjoy staying at The Regent Hill Side as much as I enjoy living here. Sadly, I am not here all the time, but hope very much that our staff will make your stay relaxing and memorable”.
