Worst place to stay
on Dec 25, 2018
We visited this place from 22.12.18 to 24.12.18. It is the most unfriendly and non-customer oriented place.
When I booked with the hotel reservation team, I had clearly mentioned we are travelling with a 2 year old child but still the room given to us was a couple room in which there was not even proper place to keep luggage, let alone stay with a toddler. Management refused a refund and said you will have to upgrade by paying extra money. A complete scam. They had the bigger room emplty but refused to let us stay for the night there saying you will have to pay full days amount if you want to shift at night (10 pm). For request for early morning shifting again we were told that the regular check in time is 10 am and hence we will not give before that (inspite of room being empty). We shifted next day at 10 am to bigger room by paying about 40% more cost for 2 nights
The food here is really bad. Spicy and Oily. We had a terrible bout of stomach upset after eating here but again we were told that only with food package is given. Though a different story was told before booking.
There is only 1 small play space for kids with rusty slides and swings but that is also generally occupied by youngsters as there is no garden. Children get bored as there is no proper place to run around.
The flooring near the swimming pool area is soo bad, 2 girls fell down in a span on 1 hour we were there and bruised their knee badly
We were told by mumbai office that there is free wifi in room. But wifi didnot work n both the rooms we stayed. The local staff mentioned that it has range problem in room, then why false promises by mumbai office is made.
Only good points are closeness to market and the balconies in the rooms.
Management should become more customer friendly. Stay here only if you want to spoil your vacation! There are much better resorts at this price range.

After a R&D on many websites and checking out reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to book Hotel Lake View (needed a change from a hotel wherein we stay regularly). This was our first visit to Hotel Lake View so I was looking forward to it.
It is close to Market yet very peaceful and serene (Adjacent to Little Italy). It has 2 gates - One on Lake Road & another near Little Italy. Car parking is big enough. You can have a nice morning walk in nicely maintained Makhria Garden (2 min walk). Hotel premises is well spread out with large open spaces and lots of trees. Swimming pool is a big one and is surrounded by trees. There are many tables and chairs near swimming pool and near reception where you can just relax and have a nice chit chat. A decent lawn near swimming pool is also a nice place to relax. Game room has a Table Tennis, Carom, Chess, Hand football, Ludo etc...They have kept some old furniture and sofas in game room. Need to remove them.
We stayed in Executive room having a swimming pool facing cozy balcony. Room was decent with facilities like LED TV, Tata Sky connection, Tea-Coffee maker, 2 medium bottles of mineral water and double bed and a sofa. They also provide free Wifi. Balcony had a small center table with 4 chairs. Here, you can just relax, read a book, have tea/snacks and just gaze at the blue waters of swimming pool. Room service for food is available. We did not opt for food but they have packages inclusive of food also. Only complaint we had was with milk powder sachets. Expiry date was already over hence we called them up and got it replaced.
Verdict: A nice, peaceful and close to nature hotel with decent rooms and facilities for a good family vacation.
