The Panorama was in a neighborhood of nice, large houses high up on the hill. We had to climb up a steep driveway, but what a great place! The owners, Tina and Dieter, greeted us, and he dragged my suitcase upstairs (thanks!). What lovely and friendly people they were. We snagged the room with a great view. My other friends... More

We loved the lodge and Kynssna. The hospitality was top notch with plenty of tips and helpful guidance, keen for us to see the best sights in the area. They helped with discounts at the bird, monkey and game safaris about a 40 min drive away. Breakfast was fun sitting around the table socializing with all the other guests too

Dieter and Tina have an excellent B&B. They were very hospitable and the detail-orientation and care that they put into everything is very visible. Our stay was very comfortable and they did everything possible to ensure that we were well looked-after. That includes going out of their way to engage with us and make sure that we did all the important... More

We travelled to Knysna for our daughters' Hockey tournament. The room was perfect for the four of us. Bathroom small, but adequate. Everything very neat. Kitchenette well equipped. Nice stoep with beautiful view over lagoon. The best part definitely all the new information Dieter gave us about places to visit in and around Knysna. And where to go eat. Tina... More

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.
