Our stay of 7 nights at Practically Lakeside was one of the most pleasurable experiences my husband and I have had. The accommodation is first class and the atmosphere is serene and peaceful. The breakfasts were plentiful, healthy and delicious (hot or cold) with tea and coffee facilities for whenever you wanted them. Luba and Chris extend wonderful hospitality without being intrusive. Everything you could want is there with little touches of luxury thrown in. The surroundings are like living in a garden with the birds coming in to be fed. We were close to the main attractions of Canberra - NGA, National Library, the Botanical Gardens etc. The room also has comnputer access if it is needed.
