We stayed in the Lakeside Inn for 3 nights and had a fantastic stay. It is in a great location, overlooking the lake and a 5 minute walk from the main shopping and eating district. It only has 3 rooms which are spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed and great shower. There is a great bar downstairs which... More

We had an excellent stay at the lake side inn. The rooms were spacious, clean and great value for money. The owner was very helpful and spoke good English. The location was good, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Would definitely go back here and recommend it to everyone.

It wont get any better than that for that price. The location is great, the rooms are spacious and clean, and the price is amazing. But the best part is the service here, it's second to none. The owner did everything in his power to help me. So for example he went with me on my first night to buy... More

Good location, clean room, reasonable price & friendly staff are all things that backpackers need! I got a free travel map & discount for the liriver tour compared with other travel agency, really great!

Lakeside is a very small hotel, with maybe 4 rooms. The rooms are pretty small and a bit Spartan, but they are a great value. The location, right on the lake was outstanding. We were only a couple of blocks from all the shopping and activity we could handle. If you are on a budget, this is the place to... More

We were jumping for joy when we arrived at the Lakeside Inn and saw what we were getting for our travel dollars. A very small inn with comfy wooden tables and big chairs on the ground level, where they serve drinks, sandwiches and pizza. Upstairs are three rooms. Our room was wonderfully spacious with everything we needed to be happy... More

Great little inn near the lake! It was located near many shops & restaurants! We stayed for two nights and the room was clean with a comfortable bed! The American breakfast in the restaurant was not only a great value, but delicious as well!

Location is really good and staff friendly, but we ordered coffee and pizza for a snack at around 4.00pm and it took well over an hour, it needs to be a lot quicker. the rooms were very clean but the shower room was not very clean, and the toiletries in the...

We had to book a family room since couples rooms were booked out. But we were super happy with our room. The shower/bathroom was excellent and the room was wonderful. We arrived really late at night and the girl at the reception was very young and inexperienced and she wasn't able to give us the information that we wanted and... More
