“Nice Experience”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Hotel Lakeview is a very good hotel to stay in Ooty. It is nearly 2 to 3 km away from the railway station and busstand. But the place is very good. All are cottages. So you will get a peaceful stay there. Restaurant is also very good but costly. They also provide their cars to make tours. Lake is not viewed from here but it is just beside the lake. You will get hot water running all time which is very necessary. Room service is good and enough. Very clean and hygienic stay.

2 nights we stayed. Good service and clean room. But no free Wi-fi. All class hotels are providing this facility. Also recommending carpets in the room. We didn't have a good view of lake from lake view villa, which we were stayed.

Staff extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed having dinner and breakfast at the restaurent.

A good place for a calm and relaxing stay.

Land are covered with bush. Lawn in front of villas are not sheared properly. :(

I stayed here around 15 year back. Should improve in accordance with the cahnge of time then and there.

Overall it was a nice vacation with my family.

Lakeview hotel is located at a nice hilly place with good road connectivity. Room rates here are reasonable. Rooms are clean and neat, but not very well planned. We stayed at the valley view villa. The villa rooms (not very luxurious) has a living and a cramped up bedroom. Although the Bathroom, is quite spacious.The windows have no grills and they have plain glass on them.The floor is completely covered with vitrified tiles which makes it very cold to walk on, so make sure you carry leg warmers.

One of the really good things about this villa is that they have a nice fireplace and lighting it up will not be trouble. There are also options to rent room heaters in the hotel. One of the down sides is that geyser installed here, takes about 45 mins to heat up the water.The hotel has good room service and restaurant serves both veg and non- veg food. For obvious reasons, there are no ACs in any rooms here but you won't need it anyways.

The valley view rooms have very good green view, but the lake view rooms didn't have a good view of the lake. In valley view rooms the TV is in the living which is of no use, and I never understand why they put it there. If you see the pictures of the room you will understand how it doesn't make sense to put TV in living room where none of the chairs face the TV. The lakeview rooms have TV in the bedroom which is a better idea. We still selected valley view rooms as the view superseded the TV-viewing during vacation.

The shampoos provided in the hotel were not at all good, but good thing was that there's a general shop in the hotel itself where you can get shampoos and some basic things. The hotel also provides facility to call auto-rickshaws with fixed rates to important places which is very helpful to people who travel without their vehicles.

Room Tip: Select the valley view rooms as the lake view rooms hardly allow a 'lake-view'.

I stayed there one night. The level of comfort was acceptable but soundproofing and thermal insulation was not that great. Soundproofing is ok as there is not a lot of traffic but if you are unlucky and get a noisy neighbor that will be annoying. The rooms were clean enough. The bedding had a thin mattress but that was ok. Linen is provided. There was no AC in my room but as it was rather cold (like 15C at night), it was bearable (pack a sweater as it can be used there).

You could buy extra wifi for a fee but I didn't so I can't comment on its quality.

We ate at the restaurant twice and had a breakfast too: the food was good enough and reasonably priced.

The travel desk provided us with some things to see around (mainly scenic spots - but you have to get a car to go there).
