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.
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, Dale 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 Make My Trip. 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.
The hotel was so good. It was my second experience in Shillong which was so good. The weather was so good. There was a lawn in the hotel in which we had a great fun. There are many facilities in the resort like ample parking, games-indoor and outdoor, WiFi facility etc. The behaviour of the staff was nice. The food was awesome. I really want to visit this resort again. It was great fun.
My experience with the hotel is good. The biggest plus point of this hotel is the location. It is very near of the Police Bazaar junction and gives a nice homely feel to its guests. The rooms are clean and quite well maintained. The staff are cooperative and wellhead. However the food quality is not up to the mark. You will not get Mobile signals in the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to budget travelers.
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 cleanliness of the hotel in a good manner.
