Booked my room via makemytrip for the last week of december. We were first given a deluxe cottage, the lock of the room was broken, we were then given an executive cottage which had great view but still the cottaage was not maintained well, the lock took quite an effort to lock the door. The door curtain holder was in broken state.

But the most scary part was awaiting us at the night, when we entered the room after Ooty sightseeing, our room was flooded with bugs, I found that their window in the Bathroom did not have any nets and there was considerable distance between glasses which will even let a rat inside the room easily. You will be offered two pillows and blanket, on our request for an extra blanket they asked for a charge of Rs. 350.(Why!!!) the reception person said that if I ask for a extra pillow as well I will be charged for an extra person in the room.

The geyser is a sad story. According to their housekeeping, the geyser needs to switched on for 45 minutes for 1 bucket of water and if another person wants to bath, wait for another 45 minutes.

Food is worst story. It is costly, unhygenic, oily and the sad part is that the hotel does'nt really care for it. They have take it or leave it attitude.

Overall: Avoid this Hotel.

Room Tip: Please avoid this hotel.

We booked a cottage here for a night. Cottage was good. Bedroom was spacious & bathroom was clean. The hotel is nearby Ooty lake and market hence making it convenient for tourists. We enjoyed out stay here. Staff was kind and courteous. Highly recommended to people who are visiting Ooty.

Everything is good except the service. The staff is not sufficient to handle the guests during peak season. I recommend to try other restaurants for food. The hotel is situated in a very nice place and calm environment. There is no view of lake from the hotel.

We stayed in this hotel july 2011 with two families. Hotel situated in a nice place and closed to main attractions. Our cottages were good and tidy. Even though it was not much capable to protect us from the strong cold wind. And they charge big price for the local logs to light up the fire place.
the staff and management is good and cooperative. Even the name is 'Lake View' we didn't had a chance to see lake from our cottages, but it has some more beautiful view to the valley. We enjoyed the stay there. I just suggest them to have a mini bar where people could find hot drinks to prevent extreme cold of Ooty ;-)

Hotel Lakeview is one of the best hotels available in Ooty. I spent two memorable days of my life there, 1–2 December, 2012.
About Hotel:
Hotel Lakeview has separate cottages. A cottage has one small hall, one bedroom, and attached bathroom. I guess, there are around 100 cottages in the area. Their beauty will ask you to stay there forever.
Location:
Hotel Lakeview is located just three-four kilometers away from the railway station. If you come to Ooty by toy train, the auto drivers will ask 100/- but you can settle them at 50/-. The road to Hotel Lakeview from the railway station is parallel to the Ooty Lake. The nearest and one of the main attractions of Ooty, Ooty Lake, is located at a walking distance from this hotel. All other attractions will need transportation. Hotel has all arrangements for this.
Hotel Staff:
Hotel staffs are no less than professionals. You ask for any information, help, or anything, they are always available. Staffs are polite and greet you with smile every time you meet them. If you speak Hindi, it may be a little bit tough to interact with the lower level staffs. They understand either Hindi or less English. However, reception and restaurant staffs understand and speak good Hindi and English.
Food:
The food available in the hotel is very tasty and no less than the food available in the North India (This is especially for North Indian people). The hotel restaurant serves from 7 am to 10 pm. You can order food from your cottage but be ready to wait for 20 minutes. One thing to remember; the rates mentioned in the menu card (restaurant and cottage) are different. So if you are a group, my advice would be to go to restaurant. You can save at least 200/- at one order.
Room Service:
Room service is quick. Normally they respond quickly. Water arrangements are inside the cottage, so I did not call them frequently. But I do not have any questions for Room Service.

Advice:
My advice is to go to this place if you are travelling in groups or on your honeymoon. The cottages are very cold in December (I visited in) so please ask for extra blankets and heater if required.

Room Tip: All Cottages are good. Book in advance and stay in any cottage. But try to get a cottage near to the...
