Well the hotel is not very luxurious however very much under budget. Great view of lake can be seen from the hotel. Located in the heart of the city. One can walk down to market for shopping as it is near police bazaar, extremely popular for shopping.

Shillong is a costly place so at this rate its a decent stay. But rooms with no view were bit suffocating.we had breakfast & dinner in this hotel which was quite tasty. Overall nice stay but not total worth of the money you spend.

The name should not be lake view inn as there was hardly any view from the room. Rooms are small. Though the service is good. Morning breakfast is also not satisfactory. Only recommended in case you just need a night sleep.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The hotel is quite average, mostly clean (except for the bathroom near the entrance hall) and equipped with essential stuff. Location is good. Overall the food was good. Breakfast was average, dinner was good. No W-lan in the rooms is a drawback, which is easily changeable. The majority of the staff members... More

Small cramped rooms, with no scope for extra bed. Service was reasonable. Complimentary breakfast was average with no spread. Basic items like bread, cornflakes etc not included. Very oily stuff. Location is the advantage. Centre of the town, very near the market and facing Ward's Lake.
