“Good location Neat Rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

The best thing I like about Lake View

- Good location but can reach only if you have a car. Else need to depend on autos in Ooty
- Spacious rooms. Neat

Negatives

- The doors are very weak. Doesnt give a sense of security while staying in the room. Anyone can break open the door and walk in.
- Food quality not great

Ooty lake is very close while you need to travel to reach Ooty town.

We had a good experience, the hospitality and service is Good, you can have landscape views.
We visited in month of Jan 2012, the temperature in evening and early morning was cool, we had asked for a room heater, but i did not make much difference. The food(Vegetarian) was good, and the area was well maintained. If you planning to have a relaxed holiday without noise and disturbance, its a perfect place.

By reading the reviews, we chose this hotel only for staying one day.

Didn't try food here. We decided to have food , in better restaurants. So, no comments on food part. But as we observed , the menu was little expensive.

We had booked suite room. It looks same as you can see in traveler photos. Nothing special.

Rooms were clean, spacious. Hot water facility is there. We didn't face any power cut problems.

Main doors, Rooms doors are made up of glass, covered with the curtains. That was not the good part.

If you want room heaters, you need to pay extra .

Fire place is there in each rooms. On your request, they will put fires. Again you need to pay extra.
The thing is, they wont mention all these things when you book the hotel. Or else we could have opted better hotel.


Good things:
1) you can park your vehicle in front of your rooms.
2) You can find the hotel naming boards in most of the places in the city( Hotel Darshan also has this advantage). It was helpful to us.

This is a average hotel. As ours was one day stay, didn't explore much in the hotel. I can say value for your money.

We reached Ooty at early morning 6AM but check-in time was 12 noon. I requested them to provide room if someone is checking out early. We waited in reception, had breakfast in restaurant, finally got room at 10:30AM.

The hotel location is good and is nearby Boat house. Food quality is average and room service is very slow. I booked Deluxe Cottage but rooms were like govt guesthouse rooms not maintained properly. I would recommend this hotel only for location and nice surroundings.
