“Lovely guesthouse, beautiful view and helpful owners!”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night on our trip from Cape Town to PE recently - Dieter was very helpful giving us information of things to do in Knysna as soon as we arrived! Unfortunately the day we arrived it was foggy so we didn't get to appreciate the view or how beautiful Knysna is. We stayed in the blue room which is decorated with a seaside theme, it was nice&had everything we needed for a one night stay! The day we were leaving the sun came out and we got to use the pool - it was very relaxing and we got to appreciate the beautiful view. Breakfast was very good also! I would definitely recommend staying here - next time I would book a room with a view :)

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

Thank you Tina and Dieter for a wonderful week at your B & B with a beautiful view to the lagoons. Nice and clean rooms. Familiar atmosphere. Very close to different golf courses....

Perfect place to stay in Knysna. Dieter and Tina helped us with all our problems and gave some very helpful information in what to do and what to see. We would love to come back one day! If its free choose the lagoon room.

A very good b&b with two hosts who where helpfull and made our stay a very pleasant experience!
Tina and Dieter had a lot of excellent tips (like where to play good golf). I would recommended it to everyone.

Room Tip: The smallest room is OK, but try the slightly bigger Jones.

spent 9 days with Dieter and Tina. The personal experience we had is something one would never get from a large hotel. Their knowledge of the area and their willingness to help you plan your holiday in Knysna was amaising. I would highly recommend Panorama Lodge as place to stay when visiting Knysna. Dieter and Tina... Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

We stayed for three nights in November 2013. I have booked the Panorama Lodge because I was travelling with my family, who do not speak a lot of English and thought they might enjoy german speaking hosts. Well, they did. A beautiful house with a spacious lounge, beautifully decorated and very clean rooms, a deck with a fantastic view over the lagoon and knowledgable and very friendly hosts. Dieter and Tina also arranged restaurant reservations for us (a must in Knysna, otherwise you wont get a table in the good restaurants) and also made tee time reservations for special prices in the surrounding golf courses. Again thank you very much - next time in SOuth Africa we will be back for sure!
