“Lakeview, a leisurely retreat”
Reviewed March 19, 2010

Hotel Lakeview was my first experience of a cottage-like place of stay, and I must say, we weren't disappointed. Located very near to central Ooty, it is easily accessible from bus station, railway station, main market, and key attractions like Ooty Lake and several others.
The rooms were clean. We had no complaints about the airflow, water supply, or power supply during our three days of stay. The lighting was abundant, and we were quite happy viewing the scenery just from our deluxe cottage (they are at bit down level) window.

Despite its name (Lakeview), view of the lake has been restricted by bushy growth nearby, which contrasts the original design. But in all, it's built with good aesthetic sense about natural beauty, and provides more-than-enough comfort to tourists.

It was a heavenly experience, to sum up.

i and a friend made an impromptu decision to drive to ooty and hence didn't have any prior hotel reservation, we got the hotel lakeview no at the back of a bus on the way to ooty and made the booking about 1-2 hrs prior to arriving. Fortunately a couple of cottages were available.
The best part of the hotel as it's name suggests is that its placed next to the ooty main lake and thus provides of excellent scenic pleasures. Their are 100+ cottages with various upgrades available and they provide for comfortable and pleasant stay. The basic amenities of fireplace and common room with dinning table provide adequate comfort to deal with chilly ooty nights!
the room service and food is decent with veg food having a slight upper hand when compared with non veg.
Overall a comfortable place to stay in ooty that too at a reasonable price!

It is good place to stay whoever loves calm location and cottage type stay. But front office guys take more time to admit. Rooms are clean and food is also ok. But we need to wait more time. Also room's interior could have constructed well.

I went there with my wife for our honeymoon trip.

The room quality was average. You can tolerate that, not so bad. But when it comes to food then better you should seek some other option. Never order anything from the North Indian food menu. Its very costly and not value for money. Again if you want to go outsomewhere to eat then its too far from this hotel.

The location is good. Its name is Lakeview but alas !! you can't see the lake unless you walk atleast half a kilometer from the hotel. But still its a good site surrounded by hills.

If you want your wif should not scold at you then avoid this place. You can enjoy with friends but not your partner.

Individual cottages offer good privacy. Affordable room service rates. In short a nice play to stay in ooty.

A nice place to stay with family. The cottages were good but looked a bit old. The hotel is located in the outskirts of the city, so everytime you need to go to the main city, you need to hire a taxi or an auto..
The hotel restaurant is really good and the food was very tasty.
There is no view of the lake from the cottages unlike its name suggests as the trees have grown up and it very much depends on the cottage you check in..
Overall, it was good and we enjoyed our trip.
