Reviewed 8 July 2017

Stayed here recently as a small family group. Very peaceful spot and pretty grounds. Our room in the main house was quite small and very hot, but the staff found us a fan which was very helpful. The three rooms booked had no views, but given that they are mainly for sleeping in, it wasn't a problem. Noticed a few little quirks but generally all very clean and comfortable. Food was excellent, both evening meals and breakfast and the staff very helpful. If we stayed again, we might opt for the lodges or specifically ask for a large room.

Room Tip: Room 4 in the main house was quite small with only a view of the conservatory roof.

Not having been to this area before, we saw a recommendation at our Lodge for this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The staff were very pleasant and the food was excellent. There was a good choice and it was hot, and also reasonably priced. The grounds at Lakeview were very pretty and well worth taking the time to have a walk round.

We had a Groupon two night stay deal, decided to stay Sunday and Monday nights.

Booked before to have Sunday Carvery when we arrived, unfortunately on our way in our VW T4 Transporter we had gear box problems on Chideock Hill (1.30 pm) and had to be towed back 57 miles to our local garage by the AA (very helpful person). My wife phoned the hotel to explain our problem when we broke down and the lady at the hotel kindly offered to keep our portions until we arrived. After picking up my car and picking our luggage etc at the garage we made our way to Devon and arrived at 8 pm in the evening. Booked in and then went down for an evening meal and our carvery meal was waiting for us, generous portions, beef for myself and turkey for my wife, very enjoyable washed down with our free bottle of wine. Our room was upstairs in the main hotel and was comfortable for our stay. Had a walk around the various lakes and pond in the hotel grounds. Very helpful and friendly staff, would highly recommend this hotel and the food was top notch. Luckily our gearbox problem wasn't that serious and I picked up the van from our local garage today. Would recommend going on the open top Tram from Colyton station (were there is free parking) to Seaton and then getting the open top bus the Jurassic Mule hop on hop off which takes you to Beer - back to Seaton - then to Lyme Regis - Charmouth and back to Lyme Regis - Seaton and Beer. There is only one bus and the next one is two hours later from where you get off, we decided to spend two hours in Lyme Regis which was very busy with visitors.

We stayed at the Lakeview Manor for 1 night with my husband, 3 children, 6 week old baby and my parents.
We had the upper and lower clock tower rooms.
The rooms were great and had so much space. The surroundings are lovely and we enjoyed walking around the lake.
The staff couldn't of been more helpful and friendly.
We had dinner and breakfast and both were lovely.
Will definitely come back. Many thanks

It was a gem of peace set in beautiful countryside. The 3 very lovely lakes were pools of tranquillity and one produced good fishing. The hotel is out in the wilds of Devon not difficult to find but down a long narrow country lane and is itself very small. Our room was in the main building and very hot as it was in the attic but it was adequate with a shower room and tea making facilities. The little cottages/lodges were probably the best bet. The food was lovely and nothing was too much trouble for the chef and he would always produce the loveliest salad for me.
The staff were superb very friendly and helpful from the receptionist to the maids could not have wished for better service.
We will definitely go again and would recommend it to anyone who wanted peace and quiet. Not children friendly too much water
