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.

A nice and peaceful resort with massive rooms, a cosy li'l restaurant and forest view on one side located close to the lake. Must say, the rooms are very clean at affordable rates and decent complimentary breakfast. The only drawback is , lack of hot water throught out the day except the scheduled hours. !

Really had a great time and great hospitality for us. we really enjoyed and it was very calm and near by forest, so view also too good for us. Food is good and we love the complimentary breakfast ( include southindian idly vada ). Manikandan from desk team suggested the places to view and comfort us like home.
