Stayed for 3 nights at the villa, which is about a 300-400m uphill walk from the reception. The room was spacious and there was a fireplace which can be used by paying 177 for a night. The room heaters were on chargeable basis. However, the room tariff was economical.

Overall a good stay. They even have a travel desk to book all sightseeing trips.

First thing Its NON AC , NON heater room heater hotel, so in cold nights all u hav blanket.

Its old designed old cottages/villa with sleeping room too small and worst part bed is too small , its not even queen size , so u hav kids forget u will fit in bed , if ur height 5.10 inch or more ur legs will not fit in bed either.

thr is one extra single cot in outside tv room , for which if u ask bedding thy will charge extra.

TV is not in inside room,so u cant watch tv while in bed in cold nights.
bot to mention cable provider remotes r too complex , u will need a KT for operating those tv remotes.

Receptionsts r very argumenative with negative atitude , i hav to literally fight with him to convince them to provide one blanket for my driver as he has to sleep in car in cold night , thy didnt provided blanket thy agreed for one bed sheetafter 30 mins of fight..thy dnt think driver as human being as thy demotivate ppl to bring thr own cab as thy hav thr own travel desk which is way expensive.
1800 rs for 4-5 sites viewing.

Restaurent is way expensive and tastelless food. an idly plate is 90 Rs+ tax, bttr go A2B restaurent for food.

Though its just 2km from bust stand , but its inside road , so if u hav not brought ur cab , u hav to struggle to get auto to go bus stand or anywhere.

and last one it has no lake view , tgr is one big electrical dept office between this hotel and one small corner of lake , may be some where one wall of hotel touches the lake but no way it has any lake view , so dnt go for name pf hotel..

its very avg hotel , other staff was ok

Dear Sir,
Greetings from Hotel Lakeview Ooty. We thank you very much for the time you have taken to give us your feedback.
In order to prevent your review from misleading other readers, please find our response.
Hotel Lakeview has 123 cottages in 8 acres of land sharing 350 feet of common boundary with Ooty Lake from its western side. We have both lake facing and valley facing cottages. Each of our cottages have living cum dining room along with fire place and bedroom.
All the cottages are basically designed for double accommodation. The third person is charged extra person charges and the existing divan cot in the living room is converted into a bed to accommodate this extra person.
All our bedroom cots are of Queen Size of 5 feet width and 6 n ½ feet length. Our divan cot in the living room which gets converted into bed for the extra person is 2 n ½ feet width and 6 n ½ feet length.
We announce everywhere including our website that the third adult to be accommodated in the same cottage will be charged extra person charges.
Our receptionists are well trained to be very polite and warm and to be most hospitable to our guest. They never argued with sir but were only trying to explain the situation to sir because of sir’s confusion.
All 123 cottages are having the same procedure for operating TV and it is as easy as operating any TV with set top box.
We are providing both the TV and set top box remotes in all the cottages. My electrician had come to your room to explain when you requested. After that, we did not have any request from sir.
We being a large hotel property, on any given night, we will have at least 50 to 60 drivers in the property. We do take care of drivers with all required facilities they need. All drivers are given any number of blankets complimentary and free of charge. Since each of these blankets cost Rs. 800, we do take a refundable security deposit of Rs.200 per blanket to help remind the drivers to return the blankets while they are leaving the hotel.
We are sad to hear that sir was quiet disappointed with food but it has been noticed and we are having our chefs address this. I have read your feedback regarding the price of food. The pricing and the choice of menu options in our restaurant are also very competitive as compare to other hotels in the same segment including A2B restaurant and we really assure value for money for our guests.
Hotel is located just 1 n ½ kms from central bus stand and railway station and we also provide 24/7 auto/taxi facility at the hotel.
We hope that you will stay with us again and give us an another opportunity to provide you with a more positive impression about our hotel.
It would be a pleasure to personally welcome you back to our hotel on your next trip to Ooty.
Thanks and Regards,
Dinesh.R

Visited here in the month of March. The hotel is very close to the ooty lake, but only few cottages have that view. The hotel is very big and provides different economy options for tourists.
The rooms were very clean and the hotel provided great service. Having food in the room is a little challenge as the food gets cold on its way from kitchen to your room as weather in ooty is pretty cool.
We liked ooty as a place. The weather was very nice and it was pleasantly cold there in the month of March.
Definitely recommend you to stay at this hotel if you are looking for a safe and decent place, well equipped and easily accessible.
The hotel can even arrange for your sight seeing on request.

Dear sir,
Greetings from Hotel Lakeview ooty. Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay.
Hotel Lakeview has 123 cottages with 8 acres of land facing the lake from its western side. It is true that all 123 cottages do not face the lake. We are extremely sorry to know that sir happened to stay in one of those.
Due to the expanse of this property and the cold weather in ooty, we do not promote room service at all. In fact there is an abundant caution to every guest on the menu card saying that all the order will take 45 minutes to be served and the food is also likely to get cold due to ooty weather. In view of this we also request our guest to patronize our restaurant to avoid these two areas and to take benefit of the reduced prices in the restaurant.
We hope you will choose Hotel Lakeview again when you are in ooty.
Thanks and regards,
Dinesh.R
