“Great Place, affordable price”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

stayed there for 3 days in march 1st week..
Very good place to stay.. Room service is also responding quickly.
The climate was very cold, so we asked for a room heater.
the room heater cost was 350 per day. The resturant food is good over there.
for views we have to go out of the hotel. Ours was a deluxe room.. premium room has an extra of chimney fire which they wil allow only for 1 hr in the nite but not more than that. so we thought deluxe is better.

Have been to Lake View many times.

ACCOMMODATION:
Independent cottages built on a hill slope overlooking the lake- approx 122 of them offer a splendid stay. Each room has a living room and a bedroom with bath attached. To my knowledge the rooms don't differ except for furnishing and the availability of fireplace (superior rooms). Not all rooms have view of the lake. A cottage to yourself is what adds the charm to the place. Bed is spacious and can accommodate 3 adults easily. The front room has a small cot so if you pay for extra bed 4 adults can get together in 1 cottage itself.

FOOD
Is average, if you are visiting Ooty during a cold season ensure to have your food as soon as it comes. Room service takes time so plan accordingly and order.

SERVICE & STAFF
Good room service guys and a bunch of very arrogant front desk managers. There has been tiffs when the front desk managers charge you the rent+tax of an entire day even if you are 45minutes late for checkout! So if you try to keep these folks at a distance you should be having a pleasant stay there. If you book rooms through any travel websites call up the hotel and confirm for I know people who have had nasty experiences.

On the whole 3/5. If you are in Ooty for the first time and plan to stay here even a blind man can take you there!

This has been our favourite place to stay on several trips to Ooty as they have clean big rooms, nice view, and option to go for a room with a fireplace where they will help you light the fire. It's on a hill so makes it really beautiful in the mornings looking out at the fog around.

I give it a 4 star rating and not 5 star as when the occupancy is high the service is affected + it is preferred that you have your own vehicle if staying here as the road leading to it around the Ooty lake can be lonely after sunset with local transporation needing to be arranged when coming back from the market.

Good comfortable family place overall. Restauramt serves vegetarian food that is decent.

If you have your vehicle, you can drive your car upto the nearest road on the hill near your room.

Room Tip: Look for rooms towards the bottom of the hill that avoids any traffic (that is less anyway within th...

I have stayed at the Lakeview twice. Must admit location is excellent. Food is exceptional. Infact the North Indian cuisince served here is the best in Ooty. Nice well appointed cottages with nice view. Ooty lake and station is pretty much at a walkable distance. Overall I would recommend this property. A big minus is NO ALCOHOL!!!!

Lakeview consists of lots of pink concrete cottages running down a slope a little way out of town. We stayed in two cottages for one night in January 2012. They had a bedroom, table and chairs, lounge chairs, fireplace (we didn't use) verandah and parking. As it is lcoated a few km out of town, (we either walked or used an auto rickshaw - 60Rs I think), to get to town ) it was very peaceful. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the food in the restaurant was reasonable (we didn't use room service). It was a bit cool, being January but was a pleasant stay. The old town of Ooty was much more interesting than we thought it would be - we were primarily there because we caught the toy train from Mettupalayam (a neat train trip) and it was much more enjoyable than Kodaikanal, to which we had taken a day trip.

Stayed at Hotel Lakeview cottages many a times. The hotel is Located approx 3 kms from the main Ooty town and far away from hustle bustle of the main town. Hotel Lakeview as the hotel name says, it actually provides view of famous Ooty Lake, one could just walk up to the lake and take a boat ride.

We stayed in the Suites as well as the Deluxe cottage of the hotel which was quite good though not great but still a nice cozy place. The hotel staff is courteous, helpful and makes your stay memorable. Try and avoid the room service as it takes ages as the hotel being on a hill / slope actually takes time.

The famous Fern Hill Palace is just 2 kms away from this hotel so one can take an evening stroll and visit the palace. Would recommend this place anytime, if you don't want hustle bustle and want some piece of mind.

The hotel is very reasonably priced and would recommend you not to stay here if you do not have your own transportation.
