“Almost on the shore”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We had booked 3 suites...and on arrival we were given 3 adjacent ones..facing the lake. The rooms where good and spacious...almost like a one bedroom apartment /cottage..with living room , fireplace,a dining area, and a bedroom. Neat and tidy surroundings. Vehicle could be parked (in most cases) next to the suites.
Friendly staff, quick room service are a highlight. One can also get a small bundle of firewood for the fireplace for Rs. 100.
Excellent food, although a bit expensive ( One chappatthi / roti is priced at Rs. 40!...one single piece!!).
Overall had a good time at Lake View.

Room Tip: Not all cottages face the lake/direct views...choose cottage 1 to 4 to get a good view.

This is a great place to stay on a budget if you are having a car at all times, since it is far from main market areas. Otherwise its a beautiful place - all consisting of cottages and main building area for restaurant etc. There is separate arrangement for driver to sleep etc. This was the last stop on our Bangalore/Mysore/Ooty journey and it turned out to be superb. We also visited Connor and Redhills while staying here.

All hotel facilities are basic but considering the costs for a hill station resort, that is value for money.

Room Tip: Take the cottages nearer to the restaurant that way you will have faster service

Best liked is the location and rooms with lush greenary around. Restaurants menu and service could have been better. Not many dishes were available with very less/forced choices. They could have provided heaters in the rooms, even with extra charges would be fine.

Suit Room 198 at Lake View at the western end of the Lake on the top of the Queen of Hill stations was a nice place to hide from the madding crowd during the NewYear week. My wife and me , with four of my college mates and their family , had a three day round the clock merry making. A wedding of the son of our old pal, at the West Lakeside Church...Full spread lunch and dinner at the Hotel and lawn.. Ooh ,inspiring hospitality flowing from our hosts. Yes , it was a lifetime experience at Lakeview....day and night enjoyment . A bundle of thanks to MAFIA. We were @ home. A happy beginning for 2013. We will carry the feel in our memories for ever.

Room Tip: A room near the front office will give easy access to restaurant .

The hotel is at a very convienient location , about 2 kms from main market however not right in it. Quality food , good ambience with its spreadout cottages from the main building . The staff was very helpful and courteous and the room service was very efficient. Choice of veg and non veg food at the restaurant ,Overall highly satisfactory and comfortable.

A separate cottage with good room service will feel you a home. Room service was good. Negative points is also here--> Room cleanliness was not upto 3 star standard. If they are claiming as a 3 star hotel, they must provide the air condition cottage so that separate room heater(which was also chargeable) will not be needed during night time.
