The guest house is beautifully and artfully decorated. Arnold and Annalise are welcoming, friendly and professional. The food served by Arnold is of a very high standard. He prepares most of it in front of his guests in their gorgeous kitchen. It is a true gourmet foodie experience which can be highly recommended!

Arnold and Annelise delighted our friends and us with an amazing multi course dinner. It will blow your mind. The variety on your taste buds was amazing. We are already planning our next visit with friends. Sitting around a big cozy table whilst the best dishes arrive one after the other is a great experience.

Ah! is wonderful. Better than you can possibly imagine. Peaceful excellence on the misty, salty Atlantic coast. Our room was calm and spacious, giving on to the large roof terrace - a perfect place to relax with a book. A few steps away the beach stretches out forever... and is clean and empty. The sea is not as cold as people might have you believe... we swam... Paternoster is the ideal place to recharge if, as we had, you have been travelling for a week through the Klein Karoo. But Ah! is not just a well placed guesthouse - it is somewhere very special, and made so by the wonderful owners, Arnold and Annalise. We had some eating plans (and you can eat very well in Paternoster - Leeto is very good) but adjusted them to eat at Arnold's chef's table - and what a good decision. He is a simply superb chef, and it's as much a pleasure to see him calmly at work as to eat his stunning food. An experience not to be missed. And I haven't even mentioned the breakfasts! Book Ah! if you can. If it's full, change your plans and find a few nights when there is room... It's perfection.
