“Luxurious. And then: what a view!”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

On the hills (Knysna Hights) with astonishing views over the lagoon. Generous luxurious rooms with big teraces and a big bathroom section. Helpful landlady with recommendations for restaurants etc. Allright breakfast. You park your car on the property. We liked it.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are probably the best.

I stayed at Atlantic Guest House for four weeks in December, and had a great time there. The facilities were excellent, the staff very friendly and the views were some of the best in Knysna.

The rooms are clean and well furnished and the breakfasts were very well presented. They really could not do enough to make me feel at home. Highly recommended. I have tried several different guest houses in Knysna over the past five years and this one wins hands down in every respect.

It was my first time visiting Knysna. I got interest from my friend that it was a fabulous place to escape to. In looking for a place to live, sleeping out assisted me and I just fell in love with Atlantic guest house...I must say it was love at first sight. I wanted a place where my family would feel like a home away from home. When I was told there was a space for my family we were all excited. Thanks Tess for being a lovely person, she supported us all the way as I did not know what am getting my family into. We arrived at the place and we got a warm welcome irrespective of the fact that we landed there at ungodly hours. Thank you Atlantic staff for not taking us for granted as South Africans. For me it was so unbelievable to receive such warmth from my own country...I was so impressed and I wished that all our hospitality business treat everybody like that. All the visitors at the place seemed like a real family. This was a good example of Ubuntu and am glad that my kids had to experience such respect, care and love. We really felt like a Royal family. Keep up the good work and continue to fly our country's flag high!!!!!!

Room Tip: Make sure you have one with an amazing view.....see the lagoon heads through your balcony when havin...

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...
