The Hosts are very friendly and helpful in planning activities in and around Knysna. The View from the deck is superb and the breakfast was delicious. There is a Grill available on request and the family room has a small deck of its own. We had no reason whatsoever to complain.

This B&B came at the recommendation of Cape Town Tourism, and we could see why. Located up the side of the mountain, following well-placed signs, we found the Panorama Lodge. Its hosts, Dieter and Tina, are friendly, easy-going, and clearly enjoy providing a comfortable and clean accommodation for its guests. We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking scenic...

Our stay in Panorama Lodge was very good: warm welcoming hosts who took the time to explain us everything around, who even upgraded us (thanks Dieter & Tina! 😊) and who offered also a really nice breakfast - delicious carrot cake! The room was quite big and very nice view from the terrace, just a bit tricky to park and...

Panorama Lodge is a fine place to stay at and the view from here is fantastic. The rooms were nice and clean, the breakfast was very good and the owners were very helpful. We will certainly return back the next time we visit Knysna.

We stayed at Panorama Lodge for 3 nights. While it was a very nice house, there were a few things that would make me less likely to stay here in the future. 1. It was a very small room 2. Our hosts were nice, but not overly accommodating. We were quite jet lagged and woke up at 930 to find...

Dear Hasan, we are sorry to read your review. 1. You booked our "small low budget room or perfect single-room". And yes, it is a small room, thats why the presciption mentioned this. It is a cheap room, but a nice one. 2. Breakfast is served between 8.00 and 9.30 am and we mention this, when we check our guests...

We spent only one night at Panorama Lodge and we had a tremendous experience! Our host welcomed us so kindly and took time to explain us all the cool and informative stories about the region.

The German owner/host (Dieter) is very welcoming and full of information about things to do in the area. Dieter is always happy to sit down and share his deep knowledge about various topics with his guests. Breakfast is served on the veranda (weather permitting) overlooking lots of attractive landscape. Quite outstanding location!
