Location is a steal. ON THE LAKESIDE. Just sit in your room balcony and you are transported to another world. Other aspects of the hotel ensure you remain there. Property has colonial charm and is impeccably maintained. Modern facilities and absolutely clean rooms and other areas. very good breakfast and dinner spread. Good menu for room service too. The staff deserves five stars.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor though all the rooms are lakefacing.

Been there so many times over past many years and this place still retins it's old charms. The staff are helpful, the location impeccable and the facilities and room cleanliness upto the mark. The boating is right outside and so are other things in the city. The tours were great and quite comfortable with their hotel van. Try the massages and romantic dinners if possible. They even decorated the room with flowers etc when requested. Can't wait to come back. Truly, best of Kodai!

Room Tip: Get lakeside room

Excellent Hospitality, Delicious and wide variety of Food, Lake facing rooms with great ambiance and ever smiling and greeting staff crew members! We had our long awaiting awesome honeymoon at The Carlton! Special arrangements for New Year was really appreciable! They really made our stay worth to the core. Me and my wife will never forget the experience and we're whole-heartily thankful to the Carlton team for such a wonderful arrangements! And yeah, the property's tag 'No one gives you Kodai like the carlton' Touchwood, very True. Back home with mesmerizing memories of Kodai and ofcourse The Carlton!

The only thing that we were not convinced was: the bedding arrangement! It was a two single bed combined as one... hmnnn not really convenient when you travel as a couple! So the management should take note of this and avoid combining beds for couples.

Room Tip: Please ask for rooms which don't share the door in between, if you're travelling as couples...
