Clifton Inn is a nice place to stay in Yercaud. Staffs are helpful. Rooms are neat and as we had got the rooms in the 1st floor we had a nice big terrace in front of all our rooms. It was awesome to spend the evening there in the open corridor. We preferred to have dinner there only instead of having it in room. Breakfast was okay. They have indoor games like TT, cards, Chess etc. I must mention that there were quite a few power cuts but they have generator facility. As the weather was very pleasant with cool breeze, rather cold in the night and no mosquitoes, we did not feel the problem with the power cuts.
The only downside is that they do not prepare lunch and dinner unless they have specific orders much before the meal time. As we reached there around 1:30 PM and had no clue that food would not be available in the hotel we had a big time problem. And one major problem - not only of the hotel but through out Yercaud - people have a habit of saying "only half kilometer" or "only 5 mins". So, the hotel guy said that only half a km away there was a restaurant and so we preferred to walk rather than take our car. We had to walk almost 2.5 km in empty stomach to find a restaurant. So, if you are going to Yercaud, change your metrics :). 5 mins can be 30-50 mins and half km can be 2.5 - 3 km :).
All in all. a good place to stay with calm and quite environment. A perfect place for relaxation. But you must ask them to keep lunch and dinner prepared much ahead of time.
