Hotel Lake View (HPTDC)
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Bilaspur
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We started for Manali from Delhi at around 4pm and it was way too late to continue on the road as everyone wanted to have a nap. We checked a few hotels on the way around Bilaspur. We choose this spot to break journey as it looked simple and it was government run hotel. To reach the room we had to take stairs downward. No one was worried weather the room had view or not. Everyone caught the bed. We all rose around 7AM and to our surprise our room had a balcony that provided a view of the mountains at a decent. As the clouds cleared around 8AM we noticed that there was a lake near by and with very less cloud cover it gave a very nice view. Just what one wants to see early morning. Now the room, it was a decent room. The bathroom was very neat and clean with running hot water supply. There was no room service after 10PM Water was available from the reception. Overall a nice stop over.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has a balcony.

Neat, clean and relatively new appearing rooms! Offered a good view of the lake (which was however nearly dry in mid June). We also had a parrot visiting us in the morning which took some nuts!

Food was decent.

Service was below average

Enjoyable stay! Will definitely visit again! Recommended!.

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the rooms below the restaurant (301-305). They were quite good and offered a good...

Hotel is located at a very good location...and you get some nice views of the lake / river... Staff is friendly...rooms have small balcony facing river side...

while we did not stayed at the hotel but stopped only for having breakfast...property is well maintained and clean...

food quality is not very tasty...had one of the worst Tea of my life...

may not be offering any Star facilities...but we fell it is worth to stay at the hotel during winter / monsoon and make a short visit to lake and temple ruins buried in the lake...

This place is ideally located to break your journey from Delhi to Manali. I was not expecting too much from this hotel. However the location and backdrop of Lake , mountain , cool breeze and a old mandir gives a very pleasing sight and experience in the evening after a day long drive.
Staff and room service is good. Food is just excellent with right mix of taste and homely feel. Overall highly recommended if you need to break journey.

Room Tip: Go for top floor AC deluxe rooms

This place is very nice. This is my first government property and I liked it. The location is perfect and offers good views. It was just a one night stop before leaving for Delhi early morning.

Food - Good
Location - Good
Staff - Good

Next time when I will be in summer I will definitely visit the ruins of temples in govind sagar lake.

We were travelling from Chandigarh to Mandi and stopped here en route for a night halt. The rooms are basic and clean if you ovelook the age of the room. The service is very good and the staff is helpful. This place is fine for just a night halt.

We were a group of 26 people and the HPTDC bus has this fixed place for Dinner while coming back from Manali - there bus starts at 4pm from manali. This is the most pathetic place to have dinner. The service was very poor. The staff did not had any idea of anything. Food quality was very poor. I would say that HPTDC should do the review of the hotels with whom they have a tie up.

Room Tip: Please do not have food here....
