The name says it all you can have a cool view of the lake and park nearby. The price is not so high though it has all necessary facilities (heater, wifi etc). Food is also good and staff were friendly. Located just a few meters away from police bazaar, the main point of Shillong.

I had been to Shilong with my friends for vacation and stayed at this hotel. The hotel was convenient to locate and closer to city side. The staff members in the hotel are good in behaviour and services. The food we ate at this hotel was non-vegetarian which were good in quality, but price was very high. The room was congested to accommodate us and only basic amenities were provided. There were no activities or games available at this hotel. According to my visit the hotel is satisfactory to stay and the place is also that not great to visit for holidays. I would not recommend this hotel to other travellers as my experience here was not worth for money.

We had been for a trip to Assam, Meghalay & Arunachal, and Shillong was the first halt. We landed at Lake View Inn as a part of group arrangement. The entrance to the hotel is through a long, descending tunnel like pathway (see attached photo), and the hotel is not easily visible from the main road. The hotel is located close to Central Market area, and next to a picturesque lake.

However, only the rooms on one side have view towards the lake. The rooms on other side have no view and no windows either!! The hotel provides free WiFi, but the signal is weak & does not reach the rooms, so one needs to come to lobby to avail the WiFi.

The food quality, & service was good and courteous. There is no pool or any other activity possible except morning walk at the nice lake location. One can do sightseeing of Shillong, Cherapunji and Mawsmai caves from here.

Overall, it is a reasonably priced hotel, good for stay of 1 or 2 nights. Couples may find the place somewhat unromantic or uncomfortable, but groups can enjoy at the terrace outside the front office. It is also useful to those who go to Shillong on a business tour.

While our stay at Shillong we enjoyed at Hotel Lake View Inn which is located centrally near to Wards Lake. This lake is also very beautiful for morning walk. Being located centrally it is easier to go anywhere in smaller time. The food in breakfast and dinner was very excellent. What we felt that rooms were having some seepage problem. Due to which there were some unpleasant smell in the rooms

The hotel is located next to Wards lake at a walking distance from the Police Bazar, heart of the Shillong. The hotel is economic than any other hotel of same standards which are located at Police Bazar. Moreover, although there was not much variety, complimentary breakfast is provided. Entrance is very narrow and it is difficult to locate. The lake is hardly seen from the room. I stayed in a deluxe room.

Overall its a nice cosy hotel The location is nice, i.e on the bank of wards lake Shillong. The police bazar where you might think of strolling in the evening is nearby, just a 2/3 minutes walk. The staff is supportive. Had a good time. The food is also not bad.

Hotel was located near to the lake. I stayed there for 2 nights. As a tourist place, Shillong is a very good place. Hotel's location was also very good according to view. Look wise, it was average. Booking was done directly. There was no problem in reception service so it was good. Services of the hotel were good and on time. There was no problem in room. Lake view was visible from the room. Room was good. I did not have food over there. I had it outside the hotel. I took only breakfast there and it was good. Variety was available in the breakfast. Both veg. and non-veg. food was available there. Food was good. I went there with my family for relaxation.

I didn't have any problem in locating this hotel, not many options in the breakfast that was offered, good staff and the check in and check out procedures are prompt. Good property but the rooms are not clean and several amenities were not working. I complained at the reception and eventually checked out of the hotel the next day. I suggest that they clean the rooms properly and they should have more options for the food that they offer.

The stay was very pleasant with good food, clean housekeeping and helpful staff. The view of the lake from the hotel is also a sight to see. Overall it was a good experience and I'll definitely try to stay there the next time I go there and I also recommend others to stay there.
