It was amazing. Hotel is very close to the lake just 10 mins and also to the bus stand. Amenities were excellant. Comfortable stay at moderate price. Great food, good service and after all good value for money. Friendly people, loads of fun and just enjoyed the stay. Wish we could have one more stay on our next trip to ooty.

I visited lake view hotel in the april with my husband. The location isn't quite convenient if you dont have your own vehica but it gives you one of the best views in ooty.Even when we booked the room in advance,we didnt get the room in the front row from where one can have the view of lake.The reception lady was not so co-operative.The cottege was very specious and clean.Service at the restaurant was good but room service order took around an hour.food was quite nice. Overall the stay was good value for money.

We went to Lake view hotel in August. We took deluxe room which was not appropriate according to charges. Deluxe room was not well furnished, no coloring at all. Moreover room service was not good. Whatever we order that was not hot and not up-to the mark. Just for two boiled eggs we spent 48 rs.

In the restaurant also, they served cold food and even after request they served the same cold stuff. I guess staff was not interested in doing their jobs.

I am not recommending this hotel at all if someone need some quality stuff with the price that we are paying.

Do not look elsewhere if you want to enjoy a quiet and scenic location to stay in Ooty.
The room location is great, u can get a view of the Ooty lake from the front row cottages. However, if u cant stand chilly winds, take a room which is further inside since the breeze from the Ooty lake would be too much to handle (wudn't be true during summer).
There aren't much amenities like u wud find in other hotels (3 star n above). But the location and the weather more than make up for it. The food is good but the service might be a bit slow at times.
If u r staying in a suite cottage which has a fire place, make it a point to instruct the reception to keep aside logs of woods in a dry place so that u r not denied the fire place in case it rains.

Overall, the place is worth a visit and u wudnt be disappointed.

I liked this place because of its location and view. The individual cottage setups is also very good. The rooms were clean but the overall quality of the room needs to be improved.

We went on my B'day...we reached early in the morning but the front desk executive didn't allowed us for early check- in. He asked extra money for early heck-in. They have cottages with very small rooms, which were not at all clean and the door was in such a bad condition that anyone can open it even if its locked. You have to leave the keys at the front desk for room making and it will be done on request, don't change the towels daily. Bed was very small and the quilt was stinking. It was quite cold that time and there was no hot water in the bathroom. Bathroom condition was PATHETIC.
I appreciate the staff at restaurant though. The food they serve was full of taste and good quality especially I liked the Idli most....I still remember those Idlis I had in breakfast...I use to have it daily when we were there. One more plus point is they have displayed the rate list of Auto at the entrance.

We have just returned from a week at the Lakeview hill resort in ooty . The hotel is beautifully placed and we experienced decent service . It was a unique experience , from the hotel to go to the various scenic attractions was beautiful experience.

The amenities are decent considering the seasons we had gone,

Overall I would say this is probably the good hotel we have stayed in on holiday and I am very particular about amenities !
