About Lakeview

Attractively arranged over eight acres of terraced hillside, Lakeview offers 123 private cottages within a healthy ten-minute walk of the Ooty Lake Boathouse.

The cottages each feature a fireplace in the living and dining area, as well as an open deck with a view of the mountains, valley, or grounds. Free Wi-Fi, cable television, and private bathrooms are also among the standard amenities.

The Lakeview offers a 24-hour reception desk as well as tour-booking services and free private parking. Families will find a children's playground on site, as well as plenty of safe, open space to play.

Hungry travellers have a choice of traditional Indian and international cuisine at the on-site restaurant. The property also features four banquet halls for private parties and events.

Sightseers can stroll to Ooty Lake for a day of boating and picnicking, or visit the dinosaurs at Thunder World, just over two kilometres from the resort. The lovely Government Botanical Garden is five kilometres away.

Positive Reviews

Homey cottages with a view

The cottages are widely described as spacious, clean, and comfortable. Travellers who arrive during the cooler season appreciate the cosy fireplaces and room heaters. Guests are also pleased to find the en-suite bathrooms are reasonably modern, with individual water heaters. Drivers often comment that the free parking in front of each cottage is a big plus given the hilly terrain and the hotel's position on the outskirts of Ooty.

A quiet, scenic location

Healthy travellers are enthusiastic about the hotel's quiet location, often commenting that the Ooty Lake boathouse is just a short walk away – all downhill!. Guests also like that the resort is far enough from the "hustle and bustle" of the city centre to be quiet, yet the main strip is well within a two-kilometre drive.

Friendly faces at the front desk

Many of the front desk and management staff earn positive reviews for their friendly, efficient, and helpful service. Sightseers appreciate that the staff is able to arrange tours and fun activities such as horseback riding.

Negative Reviews

Mixed reviews for the on-site restaurant

Travellers are disappointed to find the restaurant does not offer a complimentary breakfast. Reviews of the food are decidedly uneven, too. Delays for room service are frequently reported, though compassionate travellers remind us all that the walk across the resort is long and steep.

Watch out for extra fees

Travellers have been annoyed to find that items such as firewood and room heaters are chargeable. Guests have also found it necessary to request complimentary items such as toiletries.

What's in a name?

Despite the property's name, travellers report that the "lake view" is only a glimpse from the edge of the children's playground area.
