Great place if you wish to relax, Kodaikanal is even better. Nothing much to do except relax, which poor network connectivity will help even further.

It is difficult to answer your question since I am staying in MUMBAI. May you can call up your hotel and ask them your query. Sorry, I didn't answer your query.

Kodaikanal is famous than Yercaud, If it is rain also you can enjoy with rain and mist... If you want you can also go to yercad from Kodaikanal for 1 or 2 days... Kodiakanal is better option than Yercaud
