    Everything was good as usual, except The sales manager Mr. Manu Kumar, he was very rude to us, which is unusual. And not good for a five star hotel like Carlton. As an exporter I travel a lot, I never had any bitter experiences like this. And no one at his level behaved like him. Management has to take care of this

    My two nights stay at the carlton was very relaxing. The location of the property is right in the centre of Kodaikanal and right on the lake. The hotel has a free cycle facility and cycling in the morning around the lake just brightens up your day.


  • Great Location

    Probably the best location in Kodai. Great views. Good facilities. Service is good. Food is not great, but the service is. Health club facilities are also good and reasonably priced. If I had to visit kodai again, would love to book at the same place again.


  • It was a fantastic experience ....

    Fantastic location. Proximity to lake is superb. We regularly went for walk besides the lake. Amazing view from lake facing rooms. Game rooms and table tennis served good entertainment. Room service was **** fast. Overall great experience.

    The service was great. Location is excellent. The breakfast buffet is delicious. I wish I could give them a 5 star rating but no. We booked two rooms for two nights. In my case, one of rooms was booked for a newly wed couple. The receptionist told me that they will charge us for taking a photographer to shoot the couple inside the hotel. Is this a reasonable request? I think so. It wasn't even crowded. They would like to convert any request not part of the booking into a business opportunity. They were a savvy business men but unreasonable for a hotel service. Just to be clear, we didn't ask to shoot a movie which is a commercial enterprise.
