Panorama House plus it's stunning views, made my Mums 80th birthday such a memorable experience. From the very first and follow up contact with Nick to book, to the day spent with Kirstine and Georgia and staff. Their service to us was impeccable and nothing was too much trouble. Friendly and actually found time in their busy schedule to have...

Stopped into Panorama House for a lunch break after a flight from Brisbane to Sydney then the drive from Sydney to Nowra for a Navy reunion. I knew the view was sensational, but was blown away by the quality and taste of the dishes served for the buffet lunch. Excellent from the main meals to the home baked fresh hot...

Panorama often have vouchers for mid week or weekend smorgasbord. They have a good variety of hot food, salads, sweets and tea or coffee. A glass of house red or white is thrown in. Good value and fresh and tasty food. The views on a clear day are simply spectacular. When you book ask for a window seat.

We entered Panorama House through the main entrance and a sign clearly indicated the buffet lunch was being served in the room on the left. The bar was on...

We had a buffet lunch there last Monday, which was nice. As it was really cheap ($18), we did not expect too much. The food as simple and still good, given the location (which has a stunning view over Wollongong) you do not need more. There are times when you pay more, of course, and on the photos of those...

The view was spectacular but unfortunately that's the only positive thing I have to say. We had a booking and upon arrival found the buffet area but were unsure where to pay, where to sit, if we could sit anywhere, etc. After wandering around for a while we eventually found a staff member who took our money and pointed to...

Went for lunch and was offered the $18 per person Buffett . Should have kept driving to Wollongong. The choice terrible the food terrible and service terrible . Buffett offered rice,meatballs,fish,silverside that was so tough a saw wouldn't have cut thru and beef casserole that was flavourless and pasta that was bland. Dessert was fruit wow.

“If travelling by car, check the location carefully on Google maps and prepare for the turn-off, which comes up quite suddenly. The rooms are very basic, so don't expect the world, but more than adequate for a good night's sleep.”
