Very good place with excellent rooms, very good food, outstanding service and the staff is very helpful. They set up two camp fires on the two nights we stayed there. The view from the room in the morning is so good.

The carnival is a nice place to stay in kodaikanal. The front desk Mr.Manikandan and Mr.Prakash were really helpful in suggesting sight seeing places,routes and take care of any other help you need. The hotel is neat and tidy. Food is tasty. Recommended for families.

This hotel is located in a beautiful location. It has nice rooms and a very friendly staff. I had stayed in "deluxe room." The deluxe rooms are facing a pine forest having a spectacular view. The "standard room" doesn't have a balcony so they may lack the charming experience of the hotel. Pros: 1. Beautiful location 2. Good restaurant. Food... More

Excellent location and superb resort. We stayed here during 3rd November to 5th November, 2013. We booked 4 rooms by our travelling company Safari tours, Surat. Very clean and specious rooms. Hotel and restaurant staff were very nice and co-operative. Food quality were too good. If you are planning for kodaicanal must try The Carnival.
