I didn't face any problem during the check-in and check-out process. The appearance of the hotel was good. The service of the hotel was not good because it was delayed. The staff of the hotel were good and friendly. The room provided to me was neat, clean, spacious and well maintained. All the amenities were in working condition. The hotel had provided the complimentary breakfast. The hotel had also provided the multi cuisine food in buffet system. The quality of the food was good and it was very expensive. The location of the hotel was very nice. Hot water facility was also there.

Had been to Ooty & Kodaikanal in Sept 2014 with family for vacation & it was mind blowing. In my opinion Carlton is one of the better place to stay in Kodaikanal. There was no delay in check-in or check-out. It was quite easy. There was a good environment in the hotel. We had all the amenities in the room. It was a nice hotel with all good facilities and quick services. The food was good and reasonably priced. The rooms were spacious, clean and well kept. The staff were polite & always willing to help.

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.

Carlton is the best place to stay in Kodaikanal. Perfect location literally next to lake. It has very helpful staff, always willing to offer help. All the rooms have lake view either from balcony or windows. Within the hotel there are some good activities like indoor games, mini golf course, library and a very nice and well maintained lawn.

Just step out of hotel and you will be on lake. Hotel provides boating services, you can also take public boating services. Hotel also provides complimentary bicycles. Every evening there are some group activities like Tombola, Magic show, folk dance etc

Only area of improvement is food. Food is good but it's only buffet and over period, it becomes routine.

It was really very nice to stay there and I really love this place and the staff too are helpful. One should really appreciate the place I will love to go again to the same hotel again in month of October. The Carlton price is too aggressively so that many can take an advantage of enjoying the property.

Whenever I go to Kodaikanal, I stay in this hotel only. Really very peaceful hotel for relaxation. It's very near to bus stand and huge distance from railway station. Rooms look very beautiful and clean. Party halls are also available. They also have some own boats to ride, amazing experience when riding on boats. Overall its very good experience.

Amenities are good and room is comfortable. Food is not at good. Front office staff are not properly guided. Early morning at 5. 30 we checked out, swiping machine was not working, it took almost 1hr to accept cheque. Front office boy did not accepted cheque and his swiping machine was not working. They could not provide hard copy of the bill till now. We spoke with their accounts people, but till now we have not received bill copy. Location wise hotel is good. If quality of food and service is improved travellers can stay in this hotel, other wise the amount they charge is higher side.

I visited Kodaikanal in the month of December 2014. I along with my family stayed in Carlton for 4 Days. All the rooms are having lake view balconies. Rooms are very beautiful and they also have interconnected room. Food quantity is also excellent.
