Atlantic Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2012

After a day's drive from a rain-soaked safari, it was wonderful to be welcomed by Tess, Mike & Shorty with a fresh pot of tea at the Atlantic Guest House. It is a real home from home with excellent accommodation, stunning views and a superb breakfast cooked to order. Nothing was too much trouble and Tess gave us plenty of advice so that we could make the most of our 3 days in Knysna, especially as this was our first visit. We will recommend Atlantic Guest House to all our friends and hope to return.

Our stay at Atlantic Gueshouse was fantastic and the perfect place for the last couple of days of our stay in Sth Africa, the breathtaking views of Knysna Harbour were just beautiful and we throughly enjoyed the jacuzzi and lounging in the bar area. The breakfasts kept us going all day and it was great to wake up and know everything was ready for us. The beds and linen were very luxourious and tasteful. We wouldn't hestitate in recommending this lovely accommodation. Tess and her crew were welcoming and very helpful.

Our stay at Atlantic Guesthouse exceeded our every expectation! The friendly staff (Tess,Mike and Shorty) were always considerate and one step ahead.

The complementary champagne we received on arrival was the cherry on the cake when we stepped into the beautiful Honeymoon suite and experienced the most breathtaking view !

Having a full buffet breakfast with views of the Lagoon and the town was a really great way to start each day, while ending the day with drinks in the Jacuzzi on the deck was like something out of a movie :)

Atlantic Guesthouse really is value for money and we can't wait to return for another stay one day soon!

This place stands head and shoulders above the rest. My wife and I spent a couple of days of our honeymoon at the Atlantic , guest house Knysna, and considering im quite fussy you can take this to the bank when i say "best guest house in Knysna" views are spectacular panoramic. the house itself offers excellent rooms, a swimming pool, chakoozi, bar, even secure parking. Rooms are well presented with all mod cons. Staff are always happy to help, and the manager Tess is quite knowledgeable about the surrounding area, if fact you have to stop her or she'll tell you the whole history of Knysna. All I can say, is that go there and see for yourself,
A big thank you to everyone at Atlantic guest house Knysna
