“Good place to stay. Value for Money”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We spent Deepavali 2011 at the Hill Station of Kodaikanal. The Hill Station is in a much better shape than Ooty. It is more clean and serene.
We stayed at the double room cottage of TTDC Hotel Tamil Nadu. The cottage block looks like an old British building, with a small varendah, the good spacious bed room, an ante-room and a big bathroom. The furnishings in the room are bare minimum, but fully functional. A comfortable bed, a working TV and Inter-com. Hot Water supply is restricted to the morning hours only.
Sitting on the verandah, we get a clear view of the hills ahead. The area is totally silent as the cottage block is placed away from any near by buildings, or roads. In the evenings it would be a pleasure to watch the town going to sleep and the chill setting in. This point also offers a good sunrise view in the morning.
The hotel restaurant offers very basic South Indian food. We also noted that the menu and the food offered on the day may be a total mismatch. The breakfast buffet in the hotel was really great. It may be a better idea to have lunch and dinner at other restaurants in the town.
The room service may NOT be at the same grand level offered at more higher priced hotel. But for around Rs.3000 (two days stay), this was a very good place to be in. The staff was quite helpful, provided you took the initiative to ask for information. The hotel is very close to most popular tourist destinations, but yet away from the crowd and noise.

Room Tip: When going for a cottage, please go for the cottages in A or B Block. These are the old English colo...

This is a very average and poorly maintained hotel with inferior quality of rooms. The rooms sizes are okay, but the condition of the rooms is not that great. Except that the price seems quite reasonable, there is nothing good about this hotel. You can easily find other hotels at a little higher price, but its worth it because Yercaud is a beautiful hill station, one of the less polluted and less commercial ones in south india and the hill station can be enjoyed only if the accomodation is good. Bottom line - Avoid this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel. There is not a single room in this hotel that will be up to your taste.

I booked two cottages online on Oct. 23, 2012. The booking process was smooth, including the payment part. But to be on the safe side I called up Hotel Tamil Nadu, Yercaud, a day before my planned trip. To my surprise there was no booking on my name and they had not received any information from TTDC. Clearly there is no coordination between the online booking team and the hotel.
Anyway, the receptionist noted my name and my reservation details including the amount and the reservation id.
The check-in and check-out times are at 10 am. I reached the place around 10:30 a.m. after a long drive of 230 km and wanted to complete the check-in formalities asap. But the receptionist told me that it will take 10 minutes as they are cleaning the room. In between another Tamil-speaking guest arrived and he was allotted a cottage instantly (the reason being he was speaking in their local language). I tried to remain calm and pointed out to the receptionist that I came first, but it was of no use. But the problem started when the receptionist told that they have only cottage now and we will have to take another deluxe room (costs less than cottage).
I had to threaten the receptionist to put back everything on track. Finally after a delay of 1:30 hr we were allotted two cottages.
The rooms were better than my expectation, but a bit old and ill maintained. I had brought my own blanket after going through all the reviews over the Internet. Our stay was comfortable after the initial hiccup.
Pros: Cheaply priced, Online booking facility (a bit dicey though), Location (just in from of the lake)
Cons: No guarantee that you will get a room even after making a reservation online, No room service, ill maintained, food is crappy, dirty linens

Room Tip: No doubt it's a value for money deal and the locations of the property is second to none. But af...

Me, my wife and son who came from USA booked online to stay at this Tamilnadu Tourism Dept property as our earlier stay there about 4 years back was so enjoyable and memorable. The cottages were new at that time and were looking awesome. But this time they were looking 'worn out' with poor maintenance- with no proper reason. Needs to ensure its update maintenance with latest amenities, neat, tidy and hygienic keeping up of rooms and for providing proper timely services in the room and the restaurant.

Good location, Value for money. Stayed in cottages, after visited all the rooms. Value for money, and they are not different from other hotel compared to service. Food is not good like anywhere in yercaud. Sri saravana bhavan is good but expensive. Other surrounding cottages charges anywhere between 2700 till 4000. Here i paid 1600, which is worth for the stay.

Nothing much to do in yercaud. i think this is highly suitable for people from salem, as i dont think it is not special experience travelling from long distances.

Room Tip: Expect reasonably. and you will be satisfied.

I went there in early June 2012. The manager there was very friendly and helped us in all sorts of things. The rooms and toilets were clean with clean bed sheets and pillow. However the gardens are full of garbage and the building lacks in maintenance. The breakfast is complementary but its totally south Indian food. The lunch are in buffet system but you can order for something extra. Food quality is average and you must tell them to make the food well or they just do a mix and match of items already there and give it so you may quite find yourself eating something entirely new..! We ordered for chicken curry and they put chicken in sambar and gave it..!!
The stay was very good excepting for the food.
