Though in Google Map it's show very close to Kodaikanal Lake, the property is located in Naidupuram, 2 Km from Boating point of lake. But our experience is Awesome - Superb room, tasty & variety food, great breakfast, several complementary features, nice view from Deluxe room, excellent room service.Only one problem, service is bit slow - but during a lazy tour, who wants everything too fast?

Got a nice tree canopy view from the balcony. The hotel staff were friendly enough. Ran into 1 or 2 minor issues and was resolved immediately by the staff. The food as part of buffet breakfast as well as room service ( we had dinner ) was excellent. Though service was slower, the taste easily made up for the delay. On request, due to late checkout, the hotel provided a room for few minutes before our departure to freshen up.

Lovely location, very responsive room service and excellent food. Travel arrangements made was too good. Overall it was a memorable trip.
The location was a great treat to eyes and mind. That too the balcony and the forest view made us feel very pleasant

Me and wife were in Hotel carnival for 3 days. We like hotel arrangement, Room and overall hotel property. They gave us Room with forest + Valley view facing. It
was simply amazing view. lovely location which is bit away from city noise. It is clean & neat, complimentary breakfast was nice, staffs are very good. They also Provide 24 hour running hot water which is very necessary considering Kodaikanal weather. Water was neither muddy nor any issue with hot water. Room cleaning service is also good.
Hotel has its small restaurant with tasty food. We had Dinner and we liked it. Restaurant staff is very friendly and take proper care of you. I forgot the name of 1 staff member but he was always carrying sweet smile.
Hotel has some sightseen group/individual tour packages available. I found group package are at normal rate whereas individual tours are bit costly than local agents. You can check with some local agents nearby lake area.
Hotel location is around 1.5-2km away from main lake. They say that distance can be covered by walk. But road have quite ups and downs hence it becomes difficult to walk. Time to reach Kodaikanal lake (by walk) is around 25-30 min. Cab/Taxi are available but charges are INR 100/- or INR 150/- if you booked from hotel reception. This is the only drawback of this beautiful hotel.
If you are looking for relaxation then you need to consider this place. We really enjoyed Kodaikanal. We will definitely visit again to enjoy the stay in THE CARNIVAL.

ours was a nice budget trip. Hotel is situated around 2 kms from the lake...not an issue for regular walkers, else you need tp shell out 150 rupees per side
trip to lake. View from carnival hotel is sceneric. Staff is very polite and helping. Restaurant is not so great but the staff is again very helping. one major issue is redarding their hot water timings. It is from 6 to 9 in morning and again from 6 to around 10 at night. If you are planning to even touch water apart from these times, beware I have already informed you. Room service is quick and hassle-free. In 2 days stay we called them to change our towels atleast 5 times...and they did it. Overall a pleasant stay,

Excellent location and good transport facilities offered by the hotel. A slow restaurant service was the only thin that stopped me from giving full marks. Well mannered staff and fast room service. Keep it up.

Nice Short stay for us. The food was really good and value for money. We enjoyed the stay here. Little far from the main city area and you would need
a vehicle to even visit the near by market. Rooms are very chilled and no room heater was available. We got some extra blankets though. Nice clean rooms. The rooms which do not have the balcony are very poorly lit.

We stayed there for two nights and it was an average experience.
First of all it is a normal hotel and not a resort.
The hotel location is not also good. Far from the lake and not a walking distance.
Rooms were ok, they gave us a room with no view.
Only good point is food was great.
