  • One of the best Hotels in India with excellent ambiance and best food. The stay is very comfortable with soothing lake view and spacious rooms, staff is very polite, helpful and caring. This was our second visit after 2010 and noticed no change in hospitality,

  • One of the best locations in Kodaikanal, bang on the lake. They have all the facilities one can expect from a 5 star property, including their own boat club. Property is very well maintained, start is courteous and friendly. Budget spread is big for dinner and even bigger for breakfast

  • The best place to stay in Kodaikkanal if budget is not your criteria. Lovely location near the lake and city centre. Good architectural style which will not give the contemporary lodge like feel u get in other hotels. Good variety of food and beverages available at the grand restaurant. Everyone will definitely enjoy the view of the lake from the lawn and enjoy the private Boat Club and the cycling around the lake. Not very expensive but it’s definitely worth it. Good for get together and conferences. Indeed we could accommodate 100 families for our batch get together. Contact Mr. Christopher the Manager a very nice person who is very nice and helpful.

  • Superb hospitality!! Excellent service very courteous staff. Amazing view of the lake from every room. Delicious and sumptuous food. We took breakfast and dinner. Kodaikanal means Carlton. Superb experience overall.

  • Undoubtedly, has a lovely location. Good rooms. The only hotel with the lake in touching distance. With, so many good small hotels around , looks pricy. Got a good deal at make my trip. Called directly, and they offered 25℅ higher!! Food is pretty ordinary. Service in the restaurant matches the food. Was given 2 room key cards. One was left in the room, and the other I handed over to the reception while checking out. As the house keeping couldn't find the keys I was asked to pay, Rs 400!!! And I've been going there since 1991!! No doubt, with this attitude, you can find rooms here almost on all days.
