Reviewed January 26, 2013

My wife and I and my brother-in-law and his wife stayed for 2 nights at the Atlantic Guest House and was, in every way, what we needed as we made our way to relatives in Kenton on Sea from other relatives in Cape Town. The welcome we received was friendly and considerate. The adjacent rooms were large and well appointed. We enjoyed lazing about on our verandah, with its spectacular views, for much of the day after we arrived and our subsequent exploration of Knysna in the evening sun was delightful. Breakfasts were social occasions as well as being very substantial. Tess could not have been more helpful and she is an excellent host. We were pleased with our choice of Knysna venue and would be happy to repeat the experience.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the honey moon suite and our relatives the bridal suit (or was it the other way round...

We stayed at the Altantic Guest house on our most recent trip from Canda...and it was truly wonderful!
It was luxurious yet comfortable and with the most amazing views. It has a great location to spend the day in the artisan town of Knysna, explore the castle's at noetzie, enjoy the beaches of the surounding areas, and still come home to relax in the hottub.
Many guest houses dotted the hills of knysna but the Atlantic Guest House truly rises head and shoulders above othes when it comes to their level of service, the quality of rooms and amenities, and then there is the view....
We will be back!

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!
