It was really a neat and pleasant stay here. Worth for the money. Room Heater was not working, but still that didnt harm the whole stay here. Due to less tourist, the restaurant was not operating, but you can get food outside very easily. This is located near montford school and center of all tourist spots. Very importantly this hotel...

No Power at all. They tried to act smart by switching off the whole building and saying they forgot after 4 hours.

Not recommended since this is an average budget hotel. It is not a Holiday home.Rooms are gloomy & absolutely no ventilation. There is no power every 20 minutes, they donot use generator. Generator will be ON only from 6 pm. You get muddy water in the toilets.No hot water. Only good thing was the food. We checked all the resorts... More

Yercaud is cheapest among the top hill stations in the south. Ponkailash hotel is well maintained with good service from the staff.

The hotel had one advantage the last time i stayed there- it was the best hotel in yercaud not to be featured on the travel websites. That ensured that the availability was higher and i could book it on phone whenver i wanted. Sadly, even that advantage is lost now. The hotel is usually available cheap, but jacked up the... More

Went to Yercaud on a leisure trip with friends.we had done a booking over the internet at around 700 bucks a day for a double bed room.extremely skeptical about the quality and service based on previous experiences, we were happily surprised to receive a wonderful reception (though we checked in 6 hours later than the scheduled arrival in peak rush...
