“OK for Family. Overpriced though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Located near the market. And is a fair choice for a family outing.

Cleanliness is Just Average. Bathroom was not cleaned when we checked-in.

First floor rooms are cursed with loud sounds from corridor and the entertainment center from basement.

Food is good. But they only provide gujarati veg food. no choice on that.
And that too will be served during their chaled timings only. Its like eating in a hostel.

Dont expect any spectacular view from rooms too.

Just OK. good for family.
Overall i felt it was a bit overpriced.

When: Feb 2010

Room Tip: Rooms facing pool side are preferable.

We vistied Mahabaleshwar last month and stay at Lake View was cozy amd comfortable. The food served was also healthy and tasty.

We loved the variety of food offered. Specially the neatness and the quality was maintained

The rooms are big enough for a comfortable stay. The bathrooms are clean and spacious as well. however the hot water is served only till 10 am. this timing should be increased specially in winter season

rest all was good

Room Tip: You should go for Jacussi and bath tub room so that you can have a cozy experience in winters with h...

We stayed in Split properties in Mahableshwar ie Fountain village and Hotel lake view being a peak season we did not get the same property .Lakeview we stayed in a duplex , food was excellent , but there was only one wash room in the duplex making it difficult for the family as we were with kids . Overall a good property if you are a foodie and also a lot of greenery around .

Wanna have a short break from the bustling city life,head to mahabaleshwar for some peace of mind.Lake view is an idyllic hotel for short trips.Situated close to the market,Lake view offers good rooms.ther resort is large with swimming pool,play house and other facilities.Breakfast,lunch & dinner is decent.Note that this hotel does not serve non-veg.a good place to relax.tariffs would vary depending on the season.The hotel generally does not offer early check in.Service is ok.Hotel also makes arrangements for local travel.Do visit Venna lake,strawberry gardens,mapro garden (try the pizza, sandwichs & milkshakes). Another must visit is a place called Tapola which is around 40 Kms from Mahabaleshwar.

Room Tip: Choose the lake view rooms of available.

Had a pleasant stay in December last year. Location of the Hotel is brilliant, its close to the Market as well as the lake. So everything is walkable. Different kinds of rooms, cottages, heritage rooms etc. We were put up in one of the heritage rooms. Nice cozy and comfortable. The issue were the toilets and bathrooms, not upto standard. Could have done with better ones. This was the only negative point. Staff was excellent, food was lovely. Dinner was served in the open garden whereas lunch and breakfast in the restaurant. Our plan included meals. Overall rating would be 3.5!

Room Tip: See the room before you actually check in!

Great setting, quiet place for privacy, 15 minutes walk from main bus stand, personalized service, evening events for kids magic show, puppet show etc. Decent buffet, great lunch and b fast. Suggestions implemented quickly. Can improve recreation facilities which were broken and all that space was not utilized. Good pool neat and clean.
Will surely go back for next holiday.

Hotel is ver closely located from the market and also in a very quite surrounding. garden and lawn is very nice. swimmming pool was not very clean. rooms are very clean and spacious.
food is very tasty but for non vegetarians no option .staff is very polite.good parking space.tariff are comparatively higher but worth visiting. one thing to mention the mattress are designed for the chill winters to keep your body warm, hence in summer season it is very difficult sleep in the non ac room.(tip--never choose a non ac room in summer season, as the temprature is quite above normal in summer) final verdict ---people with slightly higher budget should surely visit to spend a quality time.

Room Tip: dont ever choose a non ac room in peak summer season
