"A lovely hotel"

Posted 3 months ago

The Carlton, located right inside Kodaikanal town, features lush lawns and gardens which create the relaxing ambience that one expects in a hill station. The room was spacious and well appointed - comfortable beds and furniture, TV, DVD player, iron and board, room heater, tea/coffee making facility, mini safe, fridge (empty, not a mini bar), hair....

"The Carlton is quite worthy of its reputation of b..."

Posted 7 years ago

The Carlton is quite worthy of its reputation of being the best resort/ hotel in Kodaikanal, a position it has held for a long time. The location is pretty, just adjacent to Kodai lake and the resort itself is spread over a large area, beautifully landscaped and impressively laid out. The mix of activities available for a family with kids is amazing, from the boat club that offers \'shikara\' rides to a cycling rink with bicyles for all ages, badminton, table tennis, hammocks all around, an activity room with lots to do, a reasonable library, and lovely play area for toddlers too. The health club/ spa is good, although the peak season rush made any treatments a bit of a rushed affair. The staff is courteous and helpful--geared to meet all your needs!

"Perfect destination & a hotel with awesome food"

Posted 1 year ago

I spent my Honeymoon at Kodaikanal during mid February 2015. The place was just amazing with Lush Green Hills all around. The treks to Dolphin peak is wonderful and views are beautiful. Food is great and chocolates are just heavenly. You can find home-made chocolates all around and can taste them for free at all outlets. They are mouth watering delicious and yet very cheap with great variety available from Belgium Dark Chocolates to local fruity ones. Various activities like hiking, trekking, cycling, boating can be done in Kodaikanal. In all it makes a perfect holiday destination for every kind of tourist from honeymooners like us to family, kids, elders etc. For reaching Kodaikanal, train can be taken up-to Madurai, Kodai road or Coimbatore stations. And from there taxi or buses (4 to 5 hours) direct to Kodaikanal. Alternatively Madurai, Coimbatore can be reached by air.

"All basic room amenities with good view"

Posted 2 years ago

The location of this hotel was good. There was no difficulty to reach the hotel. The stay was very good in this hotel. Non veg food was very good. Appearance was very good from inside and outside. There was Mountain View from the room. All the basic amenities were there in the room and all were working properly. The room was also very spacious and good. There was no delay during check-in and check-out procedure. Aurvedic massage was there in the hotel, but it was chargeable. The swimming pool was also there, but we didn't use it. Sightseeing trip was arranged by the hotel. The Wi-FI facility was there in the hotel, but we didn't use. It was value for money hotel and I would like to recommend this hotel.

"Hot water facility was provided"

Posted 7 months ago

The hotel was located conveniently. The hotel was located in the city. The hotel was very near from the bus stand. The staffs in the hotel were helpful, friendly and hygienic. They were quick in attending the requests. The appearance of the hotel was classic. I had no delay in check in and checkout. I was happy with the room given to me. It was good. Lake view was seen from my room. The room was cleaned regularly. Hot water facility was provided all the time. Both veg and non veg food was served in the hotel. The price for the food was reasonable. The hotel had provided the activities. I went there with my family. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family. The hotel was worth for money.
