The Carlton - Review
Overlooking the Kodaikanal Lake and the surrounding verdant hills, the Carlton is a five-star hotel offering pristine beauty, tranquillity and the signature colonial charm of the area. The Carlton is equipped with 91 chic and comfy rooms of which there are three country style cottages and four suites with access to the terrace gardens overlooking the vast expanse of the Lake. Be it the wooden-floored Deluxe rooms or the creeper swathed stone-walled cottages or the luxurious Premium Suites –there is something for everyone. Enjoy barbeque and kinds of pasta at the lobby-level terrace, cocktails, and liquors at the rustic End Of The Road Bar, Artisan Coffee at The Hearth and multi-cuisine dishes at Silver Oak Restaurant. Wellington for meeting and conferences, Cumberland for private events and Destination Weddings for a dream wedding, there is plenty that the Carlton offers.

The Carlton, Kodaikanal Reviews
Loved the boating period. It was just around 15min for 6 in a boat for 200rs. Liked the maintenance of the lake. It is about 6km(the whole lake path). Mine was the cheapest the rest boat houses were costly. I went exactly @ 9 so v were the first person to start off with. The scenario was too good.
Rooms are really nice and tidy, and very good use of space. Amazing views from the balcony. Food is good and they also provide tasty Jain food if you ask for it. Cycling (no time limit) and boating (30 min) are complimentary. Staff people are very friendly and cooperative. Also provides very good and fast service. Enjoyed my stay here.
The property location is outstanding. The view of the lake from lavish balconies is amazing. Service is unbeatable. Food menu is sure to satisfy Ur hunger and taste buds. Amenities are at par. Separate boat club is a privilege. Cycles are in very good condition and enough in number. All the sight seeing spots are in vicinity. Overall I feel it's the best place to be for now at Kodaikanal.
Very expensive hotel with great brand value but poor infrastructure and service. Really not worth the expense. However, location is good. Balcony views are good. But food is pitiable, general cleanliness leaves much to desire. The Buffet (tried breakfast & dinner) are awful at all cost, and at Rs 1000 plus taxes, they do not merit rating. Also the market is a 500 metre walk, with excellent food options.
Perfect hotel to spend your holiday in Kodaikanal. Best location next to Lake. Overall service levels excellent. Instead of taking trips to crowded places, soak in the view from the hotel. All rooms have lake view. The entrance at the rear connects directly to the lake side. Hotel offers bicycle for riding along the lake. There is also the private boat club, but this is complimentary only for certain packages. Otherwise you are better off hiring a boat from the other boat houses, which are also conveniently next door. The games room is pretty large and can keep kids engaged with large wooden boards for Ludo and Snakes and Ladders. Hotel travel services are reasonably priced with good polite drivers and vehicles. We opted for a package which included breakfast and dinner, which was ideal. The food was good with a decent spread, but cannot be called excellent.
