Room Tip: ask for rooms with the lake view

The Carlton at Kodai according to me is a great place to stay and enjoy the beautiful hill station of Kodaikanal. The location of the hotel is amazing. Its just on the banks of the lake in the midst of lush green vegetation. The best part is that the hotel has a private access to the lake and also runs a private boat club exclusively for the guests.We took a shikara ride which was part of the package.Guests can take bicycles from the hotel and go riding around the lake which is one of the star attracions. The view of the lake and surrounding areas from the hotel makes one feel as if in paradise. The service at the hotel is outstanding.The restaurant serves very nice and delicious food, which is very difficult to find in the hill stations .The hotel arranged a half day Kodai visit for us which was complementary. The driver guide was very nice and knowldeable person who took us around all the major tourist attractions arond Kodai. The bus was comfortable and tidy. One can also hire a cab from the hotel to see places around kodaikanal which the hotel cab did not cover ( but most of the sports were covered by the hotel cab).The hotel is kept very neat and tidy. We just loved the gardens and the landscaping at the Carlton. The staff is very friendly and tries to help the guests in the best possible way.Our bus was late in the evening and check out time was 12 noon but the hotel staff allowed us to stay inside hotel and spend time in the library , garden and the recreation centre.

Awesome location
Great views
Decent food
Good facilities
everything is nearby - please walk around to explore the city, cab & transportation is not required if you ahve enough time on you.
The weather in June is even more perfect to walk around to see amazing heitage hotels.
Very helpful and polite staff
Friendly reception - they allowed us easily to early check in & late check out. They even allowed us to wander & laze around the hotel as our return train was late night.
It is expensive and not really for budget travelers but they make sure they give you your money's worth.
