The film received positive reviews from critics. Its consensus states " The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel isn't groundbreaking storytelling, but it's a sweet story about the senior set featuring a top-notch cast of veteran actors.

He declared the film "a charming, funny and heartwarming movie [and] a smoothly crafted entertainment that makes good use of seven superb veterans. Peter Travers from Rolling Stone rated the comedy three out of four stars. But this is a cast that never makes a false move even when the script settles for formula. Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly graded the film with a 'B—' rating, summarizing it as a "lulling, happy-face story of retirement-age self-renewal, set in a shimmering, weltering, jewel-colored India", and that it succeeded in selling "something safe and sweet, in a vivid foreign setting, to an underserved share of the moviegoing market.
