The facility and rooms are beautiful but what makes this guesthouse stand out is its friendly and helpful staff. Brilliant. We felt welcome and the place has a homely feel about it. I would stay there again any day.

We had an amazing stay here for a few nights in Knysna. Tess was an amazing host helping with all the local activity and restaurant bookings. There's a reason this place is rated almost perfect on booking.com, and it's that she clearly keeps the ship sailing right. Breakfast was great, and all the staff there do an amazing job. The...

Stunning in every way imaginable. Tess is a lovely lady and her staff are brilliant. The house was spotless, great breakfasts. The views were exceptional, you could stay on your decking and admire the view all day long. Tess organised taxis, recommended restaurants etc. If you are going to Knysna, then this is the place to stay. Superb

We were here as 3 generations and everybody was surprised what we did get for our money: hearty welcome by Tess, 2 individually furnished family units, each with exit to the pool deck over- looking the Knysna Lagoon onto the Heads. After enjoying a nice breakfast buffet we were allowed to stay at the poolside as long as we wished.... More

Located at a high vantage point on the hills, overlooking the lagoon & Heads of Knysna, this guest house has amongst the best views in the area. The rooms are absolutely stunning. Hugely spacious with a large balcony & a hot tub, we were wishing that we had more time to enjoy things fully rather than just passing through after... More

I have been staying at Atlantic Guest House very regularly (at times monthly) for the past few years - and I keep on coming back because it is so good! Atlantic is my 'home away from home' where Tess, Mike and the Atlantic Team always make one feel so welcome, it is definitely like arriving home. (Although I don't get... More
