Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Some of the images used in their advertisement seem to me to be magnified or zoomed in images. So, for example, some suggest or imply that you are much closer to the water etc than what you actually are, which I think are misleading etc. There were rips in some window curtains, some missing window flyscreens, some broken window locks, a huge hair ball clogging the shower drain (so you had to stand in a couple of centimetres of water when showing), no plug for the bathroom basin, insufficient consumables (eg dishwashing liquid, toilet paper) for the time period of the stay.

We have just returned home from a week on beautiful Norfolk Island. Stunning location with amazing scenery, but what marred an otherwise enjoyable week, was our stay at Panorama Seaside apartments. We were in a one bedroom apartment Number 4. This apartment had not had a decent clean for quite sometime, I have seriously never stayed in anything as bad as this. The carpets were dirty, and mouldy, the walls had dirty marks all over them, curtains were dirty. There is a small kitchen area with a stove and a fridge and small amount of bench space, but for our purposes we would not use any of the facilities, due to the state of them. We spoke to the manager Brett and pointed out our concerns. He refunded the money for the rest of our stay, and we moved to another facility that was both clean and much nicer. While seeming to be a nice guy, Brett doesn't seem to have any idea about looking after a holiday facility. We could not recommend this property

I would rate Panorama more a 1 1/2 than a 2. This place is in serious need of a huge renovation and up keep. As soon as we got there we realised that it was not of high standard. Palings were missing of the verandah (see photos). Inside, the carpets are old and smell musty, the kitchen needs updating, bathroom has old mould in corners of shower and it’s curtain. Luckily the bed was comfortable and sheets were clean but the old woollen blanket was not adequate. In the lounge room the TV wall mount obviously was broken so the TV was on the coffee table - therefore no coffee table to put drinks etc on. We had unit 5 which was a valley view. The view is a beautiful western view - too hot to appreciate on those sunny afternoons (however any view in Norfolk is gorgeous. ) The view out the front is also gorgeous when you go out onto the road past all the parked cars. I’m sure Brett (manager ) is a nice guy but boy, he needs to come into this time zone as people will not tolerate this type of accommodation and the travel agents have no idea as they have never been here.

Unit 5 is a very spacious apartment with a full kitchen, television with Australian free to air channels, a separate bedroom with a very comfortable large bed, and a great shower. The view from the back deck over a verdant valley is gorgeous, and stepping out the front door brings a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean with Nepean and Philip Islands in the foreground. The hotel is approx 3 km from town and several hundred metres from the historic Kingston area and some lovely beaches. Both areas are comfortably walkable for people with moderate fitness (although very hilly), but a rental car would make life a bit easier, especially for night time travels. The owner/manager Brett is very friendly and helpful and a great host.

Stayed 11 nights. Brett is very welcoming and helpful. Location is great. We had a lovely verandah and enjoyed that every morning and evening. Short drive to the settlement and emily bay. Short drive into burnt pine. Could not have had a better place to stay. Yes it is an old building as some reviews say but Brett does a great job in keeping it clean and in good condition. We loved our stay here. Good value. Great views. Quiet. Brilliant

I stayed at the Panorama Seaside Apartments but only stayed for 4 days because of issues. We were attracted to the apartment due to view. The two apartments at the front of the building have an ocean view and look over the penal colony and Nepean Island It was a beautiful view from our apartment and no doubt ability it is a commanding feature of the apartments. However the apartments are quite run down and need of both repair and upgrade In the photograph I provided one section of the safety railing is missing several pieces of wood and this is prevalent around the building. If I was accompanied with small children I would be serious concerned about their safety because there is a 15 foot drop to the floor below The carpet is old and emits a stagnant smell and also occurs in the hallways Insect screens have been incorrectly manufactured and Leave about a 8mm gap between the frame of the screen and window frame which makes them redundant. Furnishings are old and the bedspreads are old and appear from the 1970"s The electric start on the gas stove is long gone and matches are provided to light the burners. I haven't use a match since early 2000. Whilst the penal colony and emily Beach are a few minutes drive walking to and from the beach is probably not an option for the age demographics that visit. The hill to the penal colony is very steep. A car is essential as the shops and restaurants are six minute drive from the apartments There is no internet available at this location and whilst you can buy a internet data package you need to go to town to use it There is no air conditioning at the apartments but the sea breeze keeps the temperature down So why did we leave the apartment. Simply bird lice. Not only were we bitten but as there numbers increased they were crawling. The owner did take action to fumigate the bedroom but we didn't feel confident that the source of the infection was being addressed. We asked for a refund for the remaining days and received it and found another place to stay. From reading other reviews of this establishment it appears that the maintenance and upgrade of these apartments has been on going for a long time.

Spend 6 nights in a two bedroom Kingston View apartment, got upgraded upon check in. Hotel is not the height of luxury by any means, but it's in a fantastic location, well equipped and the owner can't do enough to help and is always available to assist.

Overlooking the historic site of Kingston, this comfortable accommodation has majestic views. Our host Brett and his family were wonderful to my 86-year old aunt, who arrived the day before. Excellent facilities and value.

Panorama Seaside Apartments are in a unique position towards the South of Norfolk Island and they overlook the Pacific Ocean and Phillip Island. The location was ideal for us 3 senior couples in February 2019 and the accommodation was quite clean and adequate for our stay. We were particularly impressed with the help given to us by Brett, who made himself available to accommodate our needs. This accommodation is not particularly 5 star but, value for money, it was a positive experience for all of us and is highly recommended for a stay on Norfolk Island.
