We stayed for only 1 night in this hotel but what I felt is we should have stayed there for 1 or 2 days more because of the location. It lies almost in the boundary of Wards Lake, a beautiful lake in Shillong, where number of visitors come everyday. Staff were very good and courteous. We booked 2 double bedded rooms with extra bed but they were having some shortages of empty double bedded room when we checked in, So, they gave us one family room (4 bedded) + 1 double bedded room without any delay. Food was also very good. Some of us had typical Bengali dinner comprising of plain basmati rice, dal fry, mixed veg and chicken kasa while others has Veg Fried Rice with Chicken Manchurian. All the items were good. We booked the hotel through MakeMyTrip. Rate was 1600/- + 600/- (extra bed)+ Some tax which approximates to 2400/- per room but MMT was having some discounts and it took only 1600/- per room for us. Charge included Bed and Breakfast. The hotel is also adjacent to the main parking garage and only 2 minutes walk from Police Bazaar.
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.
The stay was very pleasant food was good the hotel site was very nice the staff provided best service the dinner timing of the hotel was late. The hotel was clean there was enough staff. Simply amazing, nothing like to say bad about hotel, excellent it was. I have enjoyed a lot and it was a wonderful trip. The hotel river view with balcony was just awesome. The rooms are nice.
Breakfast is complimentary, but its the same menu everyday, so would not call it great. Smoking creates a mess in the hotel, as it does not have good ventilation, its located right below the parking lot, so one side is blocked. It also does not have its ... MoreIt has clean and decent rooms and the waiters/staff are also very helpful and courteous. Breakfast was tasty and sumptuous and since it was inclusive with our package, this was a good find. Though wards lake is next to the hotel, none of the rooms face the lake. To be precise, room with view implies room with a window. Overall ... More
