"Average stay"

Posted 15 Jan

The hotel has 2 types of rooms 1 type is with window and other type is without window. No lake view is available from the hotel. Room size was pathetic, the trabeller who wish to take an extra bed for extra person they are requested not to choose this hotel. Room heater was not working properly and the hotel didn't have the substitution for that. Nobody was there at reception at night after 10 pm and intercom was also not working. Breakfast was terrible but lunch and dinner was good. The good thing about the hotel was their staff, all the staff are very co operative and helpful. They maintained the cleaniness of the hotel in a good manner.

"Hotel was conveniently located"

Posted 2 Feb, 2016

The location of the hotel was convenient to approach. I didn’t find any difficulty in reaching to the hotel. The ambiance at the hotel was beautiful. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was well decorated. The staffs at the hotel were frank. There was no delayed in check in and checkout procedure. The room given to me was comfortable and clean. All the amenities in the room were functioning properly. The hot water facility was provided by the hotel. The laundry service and the Wi-Fi facility were provided by the hotel. The view from my balcony was not so good. I had not observed the food facility at the hotel. The activities like swimming pool, gym, spa, etc. were not organized by the hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers.

"A very good hotel just next to Ward's Lake "

Posted 22 Apr, 2016

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.

"Overall acceptable hotel for a short stay"

Posted 24 Mar, 2015

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.

"Good stay !!! ""

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

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
