Very spacious rooms, well maintained bathroom and toilet and hot water facility. Courteous staff. In addition to complimentary breakfast, the ordered dinner dishes, coffee or tea are delicious and supplied on time. They guided well on sight-seeing tour arrangements. Mini Basket ball court is there to warm up. Surprisingly, a mini campfire was arranged by the hotel on 31st Night which gave rejuvenation and enjoyment. Mr. Vijay and his team cooperated well. Location of the Hotel is also nice. Check in time is 10.30, this should be flexible depending upon the arrival and departure time of guests.

Stayed in "The Carnival" during the first weekend of March 2015. Excellent place to stay in Kodaikanal. The location is too good and rooms are well maintained.
They promise and the exactly deliver the same. Special thanks to Mr. Alagesan, Mr. Mani and Mr. Prakash for making this place as my only destination in Kodaikanal in future. The hotel management and staff are awesome. This earned a very good name for me ( because i booked this place for my office trip ). Call them speak and get all the clarifications which you need ( even if its a small and silly thing, they listen to you ). And you will be happy that they deliver what you expect and what they have promised you.

A nice beautiful place to stay and relax out your long stress of the metro cities. The weathers keep you alive & feel the beauty of the city. Cut some slack for yourself and do visit to have a beautiful experience.

We had a chance to visit Carnival 3 months back and it was a nice time. My wife came with me and we stayed two days. Forest view is really great. It's nice time when we spend on the Play area. My daughter enjoyed very much. She played all the games there. She also want to visit again there.

Wonderful buffet breakfast and a relaxing forest view balcony. The staffs attended to every request. We had hot water geyser available in our room. As we were under the weather, On request they provided hot water to drink in a flask on both days. Their Veg dishes and biriyanis/fried rice are the best while I wasn't too fond of their non veg gravies, my husband begs to differ. They even gave me the recipe and suggested tips :)
They arranged an extra bed on request without any extra charge. Parking is Available and it's not very far from the lake. Overall it was a pleasant experience. We would like to visit again.
CONS: Toilet seat is broken in room #215 please change it.
TV remote battery should be changed
No wifi in rooms

Me, with my family of 3 stayed at Carnival in February for 3 days. The view from the place is amazing. We had a very good time. The place is well maintained and hygienic. The staff service is very good and food is also good. The place is not far away from city places to see like lake, pokers walk etc.They had also arranged for cab service for local sight seeing. Overall a good experience
