Hotel Lake View Inn
Ranked #41 of 81 Shillong B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 June 2012

The first thing is, you cannot view lake from the rooms though it's name is "Lake View Inn".

This is actually a moderate hotel. Beside the Ward's lake. That's why it's named "Lake View Inn". 1500 rupee/night with wifi and buffet breakfast (3-4 items). Staffs are cooperative. It's entrance is little bit dirty and narrow but it's rooms and restaurant are nice and clean. Food was not bad. Calm and quite. Every room has a TV and small refrigerator. 8-10 mins walking distance from Center Point. I would recommend it for couples.

I have faced one problem and that was it's ceiling. The ceiling becomes vaporized in the winter. One of my friend's kid got sick.

Overall, it's good.

Room Tip: Choose the left side rooms. Beside these rooms, there are some open space with light jungle. Room no...

A good budget hotel conveniently located near Police Bazaar, Shillong. The rooms facing the lake are good if you want a view of the famous Wards lake. However, the rooms are spacious and the bathroom is good for such a budget hotel. Breakfast is complementary. However, two disadvantages of the hotel is its entrance, which is very narrow, and there is no parking available. In the end, the staff is helpful and courteous which is sometimes not to be seen in some costly hotels as well.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the lake.

A cute hotel offering very clean room and bathroom. The staff were courteous and food was of good quality and reasonably priced. They even offer complimentary breakfast for two person at Rs. 1540.00 all inclusive. What can any body expect at this price.

The Hotel's location is excellent, just 5 min. walk from the Police Bazaar, the Heart of Shillong. Though named as Lake view, the rooms had no windows. The rooms had a stench of stale air and no ventilation. The cleanliness was OK. Water was available and food was nothing great.

The service was acceptable and the staff was generally helpful.

The restaurant ambience was Ok, with hardly any privacy, as it was in an open area.

Overall, not a hotel to be recommended, with the the present rates and condition. Needs to be excluded form all travel sites.

Room Tip: avoid the hotel. but if you have to, chose a room with WINDOWS.

We have reached in shillong at 3p.m. We have serched some hotel in police bazar but police bazar is too much congested. So we have dicided that Lake view Inn, is the good place for staying in shillong, it is just besides the wards lake and lake view also available from the hotel . Hotel has good accomodation and complimentary breakfast. Receptionist behaviour is very good and helpful. Police bazar distance is 2-3mintues walking distance from the hotel.
