“Lovely Friendly Hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

A great guest house with wonderful hosts in Mike and Renee who really make you feel like one of the family and go out of their way to make your stay a good one.Mike is great for information about the local area,walks,beaches and places to eat etc and they both have a real passion for Africa which shines through.A nice breakfast in the morning and a comfortable room with BBC World which was important to us. We loved sitting on our balcony in the early evening having a nice glass of SA wine looking at the beautiful view. We even had our photograph taken before we left to be added to their collection!We will definitely return.
PS Try Emily Moon for dinner- it is absolutely beautiful and the food is wonderful.

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. it is safe and clean. We had a wonderful view of the bay from our terrace, and from the breakfast area. Enjoyed chatting with the other guests over breakfast. Mike is very helpful and informative in respect of the local area. Kitchenette was a little sparse in terms of equipment but for a two night stay it was perfectly adequate. Plettenburg town itself we found a little disappointing but that was in no way the fault of this B&B!

We had the budget room, so we did not have the biggest expectations. The bathroom was a little simple, but everything else was quite nice. And we had a small terrace, so we could sit outside and enjoy the evening sun.
The Wireless internet didn't work so well in our room, but for checking the emails it was good enough.
From the guesthouse you have a nice view at the bay.
Breakfast was very good, having a plate of fruits to start with and afterwords any eggs of your choice.
The best thing about this guesthouse were the hosts Rene and Mike. They are really lovely and have so many interesting stories to tell. So Thank you!

We stayed in the budget room which was clean and fairly basic but good value.
There were flowers but were dropping and not fresh on our arrival.
The breakfast was good and we sat on the balcony overloking the view the best part of our stay.
The hosts were very helpful but tended to keep popping in to check if we were leaving as they wanted to clean the room.
It is quite a way out of town and although we walked one day it is uphill on the way back along a busy road.

The property has a spectacular view over the lagoon and is only a few minutes from the town and beaches. Mike provided a wealth of useful information about the area for our 2 night stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast outside with the view was superb.

I cannot say enough great things about Panoramic Blue. Mike and Rene were amazing hosts. Mike generously took the time to sit down when we first arrived and go over recommendations for tours and for restaurants. Everything he recommended was spot on. It made our time in Plett so much more enjoyable. Our room was amazing..the view was spectacular, it was large and clean and even had a little kitchenette area. This was the best stay of our trip and thank you so much to Mike and Rene for being such gracious hosts.

We really enjoyed our four night stay with Mike and Rene. We had a lovely,comfortable,clean room with fridge and kitchenette and a lovely bathroom. The patio had a wonderful view of the bay which we also looked out on at breakfast. Mike and Rene are lovely, they are so friendly and recommended some great activities and places to eat. We enjoyed chatting to them over the delicious breakfast and loved Rene's photos and stories. A great place to stay.
