We stayed two nights during our coiichin to chenai bike ride it was a really friendly enjoyable stay, food room and hospitality were 5 star with lovely grounds and pool would have been worthy of a much longer stay.

I have stayed at Lakeside three times and always appreciate the ambiance, wonderful food, flowers, view of the water, and friendly staff. Its a perfect place to take time for yourself, away from the bustle of Indian cities.

Ending up at Lakeside after a week of fast-paced travel throughout Tamil Nadu was the perfect respite. The things that are unsurpassed are the views, the serene ambiance, and the warmth of the staff and owners (and dogs!). It is completely unlike any other place I'd seen in the country. Next time (and I plan on there being one) I... More

We had the good fortune to be here when it was rather quiet, but we hope many people will enjoy the beautifully laid out premises with pool.

Aptly named, this place sits by a sleepy lake, and with the lake itself being bordered by languorous hills, it makes for a picturesque setting. Sitting in the veranda of the main building and gazing out on this beatific view early in the morning is blissful. This place is located almost an hour by road from the nearest town, Dindigul,...
