“accommodating management, comfortable stay”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Our family of 6 recently stayed at Lakeside and found the manager to be extremely accommodating. Not only did he give us a free room because he was worried we would be too crowded with what we had reserved, he allowed me use of his phone for a short long distance call, as I had no phone. Rooms were cozy with simple cooking facilities and we slept comfortably. Everything was very clean and we felt safe. For an economical, friendly stay you can't go wrong with Lakeside.

Room Tip: No rooms had space heaters, which would have been a real asset. Coming from the US with summer temp...

Stayed overnight on a trip from Cape Town to Addo elephant park (one couple plus a lady friend); nice and clean room, excellent view of the Knysna heads. Conveniently located near shopping centre. Braai facilities require upgrading. Will stay there again next time we pass through. Friendly people running the B&B. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side are further away from the road and traffic noise; ask for room with a balcon...

We spent two nights and really enjoyed our stay. Laurette and Andre were friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and cosy, the bed comfortable and I would definitely recommend it for a short stay. Annette and Deryk Anderson

This is quite a pleasant place to overnight and stay for a few days. Great value for money with a warm hearten welcome on arrival, during one's stay and with leaving. Close to all indemnities and easy access. The caring received from the host make it so much more worth the effort.

Our room was small, a bit old but clean and tidy and a little balcony overlooking the harbor. Pity its so close to the main road (i.e. traffic noise when outside). Its okay for a stopover and conveniently positioned near the waterfront ..but in all honesty I would do some more research into places to stay next time I'n in Knysna. The owners were reasonably friendly and helpful ..The price was good

If after a five hour drive from Capetown anyone thinks this place is good, needs to go and see a doctor. We ended up in what can only be described as a converted shed, made from fibre board. We had a double room and the other in our party ended up in a room with a bunk bed in it, so little space the door could not be opened fully. She was horrified at the state of the place as she had booked it and was on the verge of tears. If a car is parked outside this room you have to limbo around it. Equipment in the room was rubbish I have thrown out better to the bin man. Nobody to greet guests, we eventually found the key on a notice board, so unable to complain. I was on the verge of going to find somewhere else to stay. Spend a few rand more and go stay somewhere else.

lakeside88, Manager at Lakeside Knysna Accomodation, responded to this review, 6 February 2015
Joined TripAdviser only a few days ago and was shocked by this review as this is not what we would like guest to experience at Lakeside. As this happened a long time ago and the problems was unfortunately not brought to our attention for rectification during the stay, although we live on the premises and our phone numbers are prominently displayed, we can now only promise that we will keep on trying to make guests leave us with positive feelings.

I stayed in Knysna one night and this was a great choice for lodging. The owners are very nice and extremely helpful. They also upgraded my room so I'd be more comfortable since it's wintertime and a larger room was available. I took advantage of the self catering option in my room and even had a balcony with a table and two chairs that overlooked the water. It is on a busy street so if street noise bothers you, bring earplugs. I live in San Francisco so the street noise was familiar to me and not a problem. Also walking distance to a BazBus stop so I got the benefits of both an affordable private room/bath and bus convenience.
