As for the Marigold Hotel, well, it's not the Delano. But overall it's a fine spot to spend a couple of hours.Detroit NewsMay 11, 2012
Basically, there's just too much crammed into "Marigold Hotel" for any of it to have impact. It may work as comfort food for old folks, but a bit less may have yielded a great deal more.NewsdayMay 11, 2012
The movie itself is a mawkish comedy-drama-romance, but the astounding cast makes it feel like a night on the West End.St. Louis Post-DispatchMay 11, 2012

The old pros elevate Hotel's otherwise pat screenplay into that sweet spot where predictability fails to negate pleasure.Seattle TimesMay 10, 2012
There's little that's surprising about the film - everyone ends up pretty much where you'd guess - but that predictable quality becomes part of the pleasure of watching it, like a book that's happily reread.San Diego Gay & Lesbian NewsMarch 15, 2017
This isn't a great film, but it's a delight to watch, and how many films can you say that about?Epoch TimesJuly 01, 2016
The movie is visually sumptuous, the colors vibrant, the indigenous faces arresting, the local customs intriguing, and the soundtrack catchy.Film Comment MagazineJune 20, 2013
It's a movie about finding purpose in life, late in life, that makes its point by first subjecting its characters to the most reductive grumpy-old-men/women shenanigans.The Patriot LedgerJune 02, 2013
A predictable, sugary-sweet confection that thrives on the liver-spotted backs of its sterling silver-haired actors.Las Vegas CityLifeApril 21, 2013
its difficult to sit through the final scenes without thinking of what Madden could have cut to earn Marigold Hotel a five-star rating.Cinema SightMarch 21, 2013
Proof that even the young can mistakenly see the aged as elderly. Their bodies may have degraded, but their minds and spirits are no less sharp.
