When we entered the Hotel, the manager showed 2 room types Standard & Deluxe Rs 1940 & Rs 1540. but we selected the Standard room as it was bigger than 1940 room but donot have any window. Deluxe room has a window but hardly any view of lake & congested. All the rooms have geyser but no AC as it... More

Adjacent to the Ward's Lake, this is a cool & quiet hotel to stay in a short trip. Rooms are not so large, but they offer adequate room unless you want to play Golf inside. A decent view of the Lake is available from some of the rooms, given that you've got a window in your's one. One thing that... More

This is good hotel to stay with homely feelings but certainly facilities can be better as we paid almost 2000 inr for double occupancy. Breakfast can be better Room can be painted frequently as its look old Good things people are friendly and you will feel at home.

We stayed in standard rooms. The rooms were booked by our travel operator. The rooms were smelly and small. The toilets, bed sheets were dirty. The breakfast included puri-subji and bread-butter-jam etc.

If u are a solo traveller on work or travelling with friends, and looking for a affordable and decent place to just crash for the night, while u are going to spend the whole day out in the town then this could be the best bet in Shillong. The Location is awesome. The Taxi stand, police bazaar and a range... More

Stayed at Lake view inn shillong for a night on June 2014. Its located very very near to Wards lake shillong, but there is no car parking. If somebody is travelling from Guwahati in his car, parking would be a big problem. Service is not good. Also for breakfast buffet the hotel seems to be unprepared for the number of... More

The hotel is located opposite to SBI main branch very close to police bazar and rooms are availableat comparatively lower price than other hotels in police bazar. Moreover, a complementary breakfast was offered with puri-sabji, bread butter, and milk-corn flex. However, from my deluxe room I can hardly see the lake.

This hotel was by far the best place to stay without burning a hole in the pocket... The downside was the poor buffet breakfast, poor view from rooms, and average interiors... BUT the upside was excellent food ordered from the kitchen! We had tried most of the veg. and non veg. Dishes and all were very tasty... Also there was... More

While searching for a hotel in Shillong on 28/03/2014, chanced upon Lake view inn just beside the Ward's Lake. The rooms are of 2 types with and without windows. The rooms with windows were all booked and hence had to settle for a room without window. Rooms were ok with a TV and other comforts but if current went off... More

Not going to recommend this place to anyone. The hotel has one exit and hotel's kitchen is there. In case of a fire if anyone is inside the room they are going to face a tough time. Breakfast was included in our package and they in fact did not serve anything on second day. We got a room without window... More
