I was very skeptical with the reviews of this hotel on trip advisor but had a comfortable stay there. Property is huge (~ 2 acres) and rooms are arranged like individual huts which are quite spacious. Close to the Ooty lake though a little far from the main market. I personally found their restaurant prices a little on high side...

While you cannot actually see the lake from rooms on top, but it's one of the closet hotel from the famous Ooty lake. I found the rooms little smaller in size than average hotel of same price, but the lobby (with TV, sofa, dining, fireplace) and bathroom (with bathtub as well) were good. For the price we paid, it's pretty...

Good place to stay in Ooty. The rooms are good and well maintained. The food served in the restaurant was also pretty good. Breakfast variety was limited however the lunch and dinner had a good array of choices. I loved my stay over there. :)

Stayed here for a day and it was an excellent experience overall. Went there without booking in advance and rooms were available. We took the villa in the front which faces the lake and play area within the hotel. If you are going with kids I suggest that you choose the villas even though they are 500 more than the...

I had been to Lake View with my friends. The rooms were good, although the cottages are located very close to each other but they do have privacy. Room service is not that bad but can be improved.The staff were friendly and courteous. Food was average. I wouldn't mind booking it again during my next trip to Ooty be it...

The layout of the villas are good. Villas and the bathroom/toilets are neat. Many of the villas looks recently renovated and is maintained well. Its a good choice for the cost. The villas have a small dining cum drawing room (with a dining table to seat 4), and a bath attached bedroom. Advisable to take indoor slippers if you are...

Average hotel to stay. About 10 years back this was a real good hotel. But off late, the place lacks maintenance/ renovation. Preferably avoid rooms in Ground floor. Good for group of guys nowadays, or if you looking for cheap options you can select this. Good place to walk out of the hotel. Closeness to the lake, helps. I would...
