Thank you very much for the support and feedback. We are pleased that you found the suite acceptable. We regret the road noise but have to live with it. The lack of insect repellant however is unacceptable, and I must ask your forgiveness. Something went wrong as we have implemented a checklist as part of the cleaning procedure to make...

We stayed for two nights at Lakeside. There was secure parking on site. The welcome was warm and when help was asked for it was freely given. Our room was well equipped and the bed soft. We would recommend Lakeside to all.It is within walking distance of all facilities. A truly nice place to stay.

Comfortable, convenient stay. Close to the Waterfront and easy access to the main road to go anywhere. Friendly and helpful staff. The room was small, but neat and tidy. A lovely view of the lake while sitting on the small deck.

The room was small but neat and tidy. Very conveniently situated with a lovely view of the lake while sitting on the small deck. There was quite a bit of traffic noise, but didn't seem to continue too late into the night. Very friendly and accommodating owners. I would definitely stay here again. .

We stayed here for just a few nights in march, and we enjoyed our stay. We had a great view from our outside seating area, beds were comfortable, and the rooms clean and well set up.

We stayed at Lakeside for one evening in May 2013. The room we stayed in was nice and had everything needed for a self catering stay.

“No rooms had space heaters, which would have been a real asset. Coming from the US with summer temperatures in the 90's, it's hard to adjust to winter temperatures in South Africa with no heat. This is commonplace in South Africa, however.”
