Lakeside 88 is full value for money and warmly maintained accommodation. The guest house is tastefully designed and kept. Internet connection is complimentary and self catering unit is well stocked. Barbecue stand and spacious parking for guests is an add on

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
