Our 3 night stay at Practically Lakeside B&B was a wonderful experience and we would have liked it to be longer. Luba and Chris are the perfect hosts, providing us with a beautiful breakfast each morning, lots of up to date information about events in Canberra and the use of their bikes and kayaks. The accommodation was very comfortable and conveniently located, only 200m to the lake and 5 minute drive to parliament house, the NGA, etc.
