Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

As I visited for this pongal festival they ve improved much better than my visits last few times. Rooms are well maintained and renovated. Service is good which needs some more improvements. Happily stayed and enjoyed my festival in there.

A bunch of us stayed here on the 14th of December 2013. The worst night of my life. We literally had to kill more than 50 spiders, they just kept coming out of no where. In addition, the bathroom was filthy when we checked-in. Also, very nosiy, unruly guests kept us awake will about 2 in the morning. Service is horrid, need to call the reception atleast 5 times and then personally go there to get any attention. No amenities like soap, towels etc. provided.

To top it all off, the hotel management was in denial of the insects in the room. Had to show him a video that we took of us killing spiders to make him believe that there is an infestation.

Also, did not see a fitness center and it looked like the pool had not been used in months.

Avoid this place like the plague!!

Choose first floor rooms which are renovated and looking good....Ground floor rooms are v old and stinky with lots of problem.
Good location to enjoy Yercaud weather and the service was not bad.....
All together we had a good time after they changed our room....
I suggest not to take food in this hotel as it is expensive .....

Room Tip: Rooms on first floors are new and clean....

Budget hotel with good value for money.
Staffs are friendly and co-operative.
Rooms are good.
Foods are good and on time.
We have to climb a lot as the restaurant is on the top and the road is steep.
Not suitable for old people.
More suitable for people going in group either families or friends.

Going by the pictures on their website, we decided to stay at the star holiday resort. And it turned out to be a bad choice of stay.

The cottages look good on the outside. But as you enter, you're shocked to find tacky rooms, non existent decor, seemingly unhygienic bathrooms and rough, scratchy blankets.

The food is very oily and spicy and the service is bad.

There are frequent power cuts and the staff is reluctant to give extra blankets etc.

The place seems to be frequented by college crowds that make the place extremely noisy.

Stay away!

I booked a cottage suite after reading reviews from this site. Some people have praised it and some have totally rejected it. My opnion is that it was a good place as per its price. It is located at the entrance of the city only and is very near to lake. Main gate and other constration is in progress there. We booked a suite cottage there and it was good. Rooms were clean and arranged. Recpetion guys were helpful also. Resturant food was not that much good. Overall a good place and in a simple budget.

Room Tip: second floor rooms are better.

Stayed here often( also in wellington resort which is also theirs). it was my regular choice whenever i go to yercaud with friends or family. Clean and budget rooms . 2000 for suite room. Restaurant is cheap and ok. Better choice to stay in yercaud.

Room Tip: Go for deluxe or SUite room( new rooms on first floors)!
