“THE place to stay on the Lizard”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Just spent three days at Atlantic House. Faultless service, outstanding breakfasts and a really lovely location with fantastic views from our room. Jayne and Phil are very warm and welcoming, so much so that we didn't feel we were staying in a commercial establishment, more as informal house guests. Among the countless extra touches, we enjoyed the fresh flowers everywhere, the very well equipped and spotless en-suite bedroom - oh, and the cream tea on arrival! A perfect start to a very comfortable and relaxing break.

Room Tip: The Pentreath room is spacious, light and airy, and may well have the best sea views. We loved it.

This obscure house on a country road at the periphery of a tiny village provides lovely rooms, helpful and friendly hosts, and views that could not be found elsewhere at many times the price. Across the road, horses and ponies graze in a pasture, while gazing out of the bay windows reveals the sea roiling at the bottom of a high, rocky cliff; and, If the day is foggy, the reduced view is supplemented by the plaintive cries of a soulful foghorn emanating from the lighthouse lying just beyond the pasture, stirring the poet's soul that sleeps within our hearts. There's a warm and friendly pub about a ten minute walk down the road (torches supplied).

Hi noah203
Many thanks for such lovely comments and that you loved the views across the fields to the sea. The ponies have now been joined by 2 very handsome horses and it is great fun to see them interact.

Many thanks P&J

Just returned home from a wonderful 3 night stay. Philip and Jayne greeted us and showed us to our beautiful room (pentreath) with fabulous views. Everything you could possibly wish for was supplied, great bathroom products, tea, coffee and so much more, and still managing to feel warm and homely. At breakfast, which was out of this world, Phil was able to provide us with his wealth of local knowledge as we planed our days ahead. If 6 stars could be awarded, atlantic house would be the first to acheive it. We would recommend it for any occasion. Thanks so much Jayne and Philip, you should be very proud of your fabulous guest house.

Atlantic House is in an ideal location for anyone wanting to walk the many coastal footpaths around the Lizard Point. Jayne and Phil are excellent hosts, the rooms are comfortable and clean with all the little luxuries you could wish for. Thank you for a great holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have the great views

I cannot imagine a more welcoming comfortable B&B in all of Cornwall. Thanks to Jayne and Phil, the Atlantic House is the perfect place to stay while there. We just returned from spending 4 nights in the Caerthillian room. When the fog is not an issue, the views from this room are of the sea and cute crazing ponies. We would definitely go back.

I feel it is too good to be true if I see a review with no negatives, however in the case of the Atlantic House I have been proved wrong.

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon around 1400hrs (a couple of hours early) and were greeted by Philip & Jayne. We were offered a cream tea on arrival and polished this off in the front garden sitting in the sun looking out across the Lizard, this was a lovely touch and great start to our stay.

Philip showed us to our room and explained everything we needed to know regarding the bathroom, television, radio/ipod player etc.

We had emailed, when booking, to see if we could be booked in to local restaurants for the two nights of our stay and Philip had arranged this for us which was again another nice touch.

The Room:

We stayed in the Kynance room which had views across the fields to the rear of the property.

The room was spot on, comfortable, clean, modern, well decorated (I could go on).
The shower room was modern & clean with easy to use controls on the shower which is always a Brucie bonus.

The bed was very comfortable and undoubtedly the best sleep we have ever had on our travels.

Breakfast:

You get the option on an evening to put yourself down for the morning special, we didn’t take advantage of this and both plumped for the full Cornish and weren’t disappointed. The food was great and although we will never be fully comfortable sitting at the same table as other guests it was not an issue.

I could carry on writing nice things but you will begin to think I am a relative of the owners.

Philip and Jayne make us feel very welcome and we will definitely book here again if we are visiting the area. We only wished that we had booked more than 2 nights.
