This was my first trip to India. An amazing country. We stayed in a variety of places, but Lakeside was really the best. I loved the food, very authentic but not too spicy. The desserts we had were amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful, the owners great company. I want to come back again. Next time with my parents.

This is the second time I have taken a group to this wonderful guest house, and it was just as good this time around as it was 2 years ago. Peter and Dorinda are such gracious hosts--always eager to help and great conversationalists. The staff are all friendly, polite, and helpful. And if you're looking for a little culinary variety...

We reserved two nights in the Lakeside Resort in Athoor-Dindigul as a rest in hectic India. And that was exactly what is was. The resort is not easy to find, at the end of the road situated at the foot of a hill looking over a beautiful quiet lake. It is the perfect scenery to relax and to take a... More

Hello Elma, Thank you for your kind review. We very much enjoyed having you and your friends to stay with us at Lakeside. I admit our location is a bit ‘out of the way’, but many people see that as an advantage with no traffic noise, and the seclusion to relax in such a peaceful place. Thanks for the comment... More

On my first trip to Southern India, I wanted to stay a few nights at this guesthouse which I had heard was a relaxing and serene place. I was definitely not disappointed. In the mornings, I would sit on the porch with my book, but always ended up just watching the beautiful scenery instead of reading. I also biked to... More

Dear Johanna, We are so glad that you enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere here a Lakeside. Many people choose to come here for the seclusion, and the chance to see something of 'real life' for the millions of people who live in rural India, rather than just visiting the usual tourist spots. We do hope that you enjoyed the rest of... More

We loved our short stay at this property and wish we could have stayed longer. We recommend Lakeside if you are looking for a relaxing break in Tamil Nadu. The cottages are very well decorated, large and clean. There is also a well maintained pool. It was a delight to have breakfast and dinner on the veranda overlooking the lake... More

Thank you for your kind review. The walk around the lake is always popular, particularly when we have all of the migratory waterbirds here. Currently we have painted stork, cormorants, snake birds, heron and a few more besides! We very much enjoyed welcoming you and your family to Lakeside and hope that we may see you again sometime.
