Colton resort's location is very nice nearby lake, Recipient responded nicely and good with smile, Rooms and Car parking were very good. Family stay is worthy and enjoyable. The climate is mist and Garden's flowers looks nice. Food is also good with different experience. Arrangements for outlets are expensive but safe. Guidance are safely explained. Overall it's nice place for families on seasons.

The hotel location is very nice, in the center of town and all the places are just a walking distance from this hotel. There are many small restaurants when you can get some quick snack. The rooms in the hotel are very good, over looking the lake, with a balcony. The staff service is quick and nice. There is small beautiful garden surrounding the hotel and the view is very nice with clouds in your reach. The food at the hotel is tasty and on the higher price range. Worth a visit.

It was a great destination for relaxation. Location of the resort was very good, next to the lake. Hotel is very good for couples, family as well as company meetings. Rooms are very good and in-house activities. Boating, cycling and a lot of activities to keep the entire family engaged. This is one of the best in Kodai. Make your bookings in advance. It is a heaven for family as well as newly married. The whole family enjoyed the stay. Food was excellent.

I had been to this hotel three times. The rooms and the location of the rooms are really amazing.
The path way and the grass lane is so good. Food taste is really good, lake view is excellent. Their service is really nice. Rooms are neat and tidy. Tariff is bit high but it has that much stuff.

Visiting the property after 16 years, all good memories of childhood ruined and erased. Regret my stay; it was a terrible Lunch & Dinner. Breakfast was the only saving grace. Pathetic Service displayed by all staff across sections. Specially Robinson (manager). Unhappy but will go back to Kodai only because of Mahindra Holidays which has a beautiful property at Coakers Walk, staying at the lake is just to commercial.

It was a leisure trip for us far from the maddening crowd in Mumbai. Low cost flight offers added the spice to the trip. We visited Kodai during Holi, in the mid of March 2014. We were apprehensive of the weather because as we landed in Madurai (the closest Airport) we were welcomed by a hot afternoon. After visiting the Shree Meenakshi Temple in the evening, we headed straight for Kodaikanal. Stay at Madurai should be curtailed in my view. The weather at Kodai was perfect, just a bit of chill. It is advisable to hire cars before hand from the Airport for Kodai because the Radio cabs at the Airport are expensive. We walked in straight into Hotel Carlton and got an all inclusive package for 2 nights.

The best part of Hotel Carlton is its location. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Most of the rooms are with attached balcony overlooking the Kodai Lake, a wonderful view from there. The Hotel has its own boats - shikara style. It also has bi-cycles for taking a ride covering the entire lake. The staff is courteous and responsive. They also arrange for bonfire on request. The only minus is the food, which I believe has to be taken care of by the Hotel authorities. Both variety and taste leave a lot to desire. However, there are various other small restaurants not very far away and good street food is also available.

If you want peace and tranquillity for 2-3 days then plan for Kodaikanal, Happy holidays.
