Reasonable place for the price paid. Nothing spectacular about the hotel but the service is prompt and timely.

The rooms were not great and there was definitely no "lake view" from any of the rooms we checked out. The good part was the fire-place which ensures some warmth since the floors are vitrified tiles and get very cold since there is no carpeting.

The restaurant was reasonable and the food quantities were sufficinet though the breakfast was a let-down since there was no option of ala-carte and only a buffet for Rs 120 which definitely wasn't worth the amount.

We used the hotel travel desk for planning all our outings and it was well taken care of.

All in all, a reasonable place to stay in if on a holiday. Nothing spectaular but wont leave you disappointed as well.

We went to Ooty on July 21, 2013 with the plans of staying 2-3 days there. However, due to bad planning on our part, our whole vacation was rained out and we were forced to stay inside the hotel room. Although the hotel claims to have a lake view, it is rather limited.

I would however like to commend the hotel on their quality of service. Whatever we asked for was delivered promptly. Even though they discouraged us from ordering food via room service since it would become cold by the time it reaches us, we insisted..since none of us wanted to walk through the wet grass and mud to the restaurant. However, surprisingly, the food was delivered hot and I would say it tasted pretty good.. contrary to our expectations on reading other reviews.

Overall, if not for the weather, we would have really enjoyed our stay there.

I visited this hotel with my family.. the location which was mentioned on hotel website and the reality was completely different, Lake View :) couldn't see anywhere..
though the staff was very good & helpful and services were also good.. Quality of rooms and cleanliness was not up-to the mark..
you will not get hot water in case of power supply failure..
I've attached the pic of the cottage..
Hope this review help other to take the correct decision..

I visited Hotel Lakeview in 2011 and must say the cottages were really beautiful. With comfortable bedding and nice big Bath Rooms the Cottage seemed extra private and cozy.
Our only disappointment was lack of hot water and the service boy had to bring in a bucket of hot water which was quite cold was OOTY's cold weather. The food was good and even after late service kept us cheered.
But, this place is a must for couples who need some time off the busy city life and want to hear only each others voices (as you hardly can feel a movement around). and Yes ofcourse the Prices are reasonable! So, Dont miss to stay here n do not forget to make sure the availability of hot water and heaters in ur beautiful Cottage!

Hotel Lakeview, Ooty is a great choice if you are travelling by car. The property is away from the crowded city area and so very peaceful and quiet. People without a car will have to shell out a lot of money on autorickshaw to and from the city.

The morning buffet breakfast at the restaurant is very good and value for money. Otherwise the room-service menu is expensive and quality is inconsistent. For lunch we preferred going to the city. The house keeping is responsive.

The rooms are designed to look like rows of cottages. They are spacious and clean. Good for small families or groups. The campus is well maintained. The play area for children is good, but can be improved. The hotel has good options for walking, jogging and strolling.

The hotel provides day sight-seeing by car at extra cost.

Room Tip: The rooms in front of the play area give the best views!
