“Not at all worth it with family”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We had planned to trip to ooty and did online booking for lakeview. Although there is lot of advertisement of this hotel everywhere in ooty so people might be thinking that hotel would be too good but i would say it not that worth it compared to their hotel price. Staff over there were not responding properly and the staff over there were not knowing national language of the country. they were not able understand what we wanted to say. Whatever we order it comes after 1-2 hours but most of the time you have to remind these 4-5 times. There is no such view from the hotel although name suggest lake view but there is not lake in front of the hotel. I would suggest not to visit this hotel with family.

Room Tip: I would suggest to book some premium rooms as deluxe was not having that much facilities.

stayed with my family and stayed at Hotel Lakeview. I tell you, its awesome experience. We opted for 2 bedroom cottage. This is newly constructed hotel so rooms are very neat and clean, gives you a very pleasant feel. You will get hill view as well as botanical garden view from hotel. Very near to central places like charring cross, botanical garden etc. Enjoyed early morning tea, walk at botanical garden. It was very cold in ooty so no hesitation from staff in providing extra blankets and extra mattresses without extra charge. Beds,bedsheets and linens were clean and even hotel staff provided us extra linens. Hot water facility is available
A separate itinerary is well accommodated by the hotel if you do not have your own vehicle. They have separate fare chart for autos, so the fear of being cheated is not going to be there.
.I Rated this as 5 Star.

We had planned a quick trip to Ooty on Thursday and did online booking for Lakeview hotel. The online option was smooth and hassle-free, and I was assured right before starting journey that the trip will go smooth, as booking was confirmed and paid too. The reception staff was supportive and patient. The room was well equipped, spacious, and comfortable. The toilet was very well-maintained. Hot water geyser in bathroom was just great. The view from room was very good. Fully recommendable for nice, relaxed and comfortable stay

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days during August 2014. The hotel is located next to the Ooty lake. The rooms are good. The service was excellent. Room service was also prompt. The staff were courteous and helpful. There is ample parking space available for car parking. Overall it was a great experience.

I came across this via travelguru, and they gave me a good price to stay over a busy weekend in Ooty. And I did not regret my decision. As a solo traveler and a girl this is completely safe. The whole place is well-surrounded by a campus with a security guard who monitors all going ins and outs. The idea of independent cottages suited me very well. It gave me a mild resemblance of privacy, while at the same time a reassurance that there are people nearby. The view is excellent and literally panoramic. The hotel staff at the reception are extremely helpful. The one thing that I didn't like about the hotel was the particular check-in and check-out times. I reached Ooty right at 6.30 on the dot by bus, and it vexed me extremely that I couldn't check in before 1 PM. Because of the odd check-out timing of 11 AM, I had to pay extra.

Excellent basic amenities provided. A basic warning sheet is provided that clearly tells you that if you wish for hot food to be served, then better go to the hotel restaurant. Because of the spread of all cottages, room service will be delayed for a minimum of 45 minutes, and might not be hot as expected. They can improve a bit on that department. The chilly weather of Ooty barely registers except when you are washing your hands in cold water. The Television set has some problem though. Some is a mild understatement. It was horrible. I had a lot of time to kill towards the end of my journey right before I checked out, and the TV set didn't make it easier for me to pass my time. A wide selection of tour packages are available if you want to go by the hotel choice. A separate itinerary is well accommodated by the hotel if you do not have your own vehicle. They have separate fare chart for autos, so the fear of being cheated is not going to be there.
In short, I would recommend it as a place of stay - for families, a group trip, a solo trip.
