I was stunned by the view when I arrived at Lakeside, I've never seen anything so beautiful and certainly did not expect to find anything like this in India.
Although I don't swim my family enjoyed the large pool and I was able to watch them and also catch up on some holiday reading from the cleverly positioned shaded seating areas around the pool.
The accommodation is very comfortable and clean (including the western bathrooms). It was lovely to be able to go out and explore rural India in the day and come back to something so welcoming. The owners are very friendly and we had some great conversations over dinner up on the roof. The food was also lovely - the best we had in India. I liked the meals because they had a real flavour of India without being too hot. The home made bread for breakfast or with a salad lunch was also lovely after the sweet bread you get elsewhere in India.
This was my first trip to India but won't be my last, and I will definitely go back to Lakeside.
