Thank you to the beautiful hosts for such a superb and faultless stay. Arnold's food is out of this world - worth travelling to paternoster for that alone. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and welcoming. Hotel standards with a very personal feel. Will definitely be going back!

We felt very relaxed and comfortable in the ground floor room at Ah! and had a most enjoyable four night stay. We were lucky enough to have two of Arnold's evening meals enjoyed with other guests which made for a very sociable occasion. Arnold is a wonderful cook and his presentation has to be seen to be believed. Breakfast is...

We spent a beautiful night in this great guesthouse, as we had booked for the Jazz Concert at Tietiesbaai. What a treat it was, and I was sorry that we could not enjoy Arnold's food as we were at the Jazz, as here is a chef who is passionate about his art of cooking, and it is a pleasure watching...

Had a great two night stay. The hosts were very friendly and if you get the chance you must dine in, Arnold is a great cook but a bit expensive. Our room was very clean and well thought out. Great place to go to get out of the city to relax.

Just had a marvellous stay with Arnold and Annalise at ah! It was our second visit. Love the ambience of the guest house - a place to chill out and relax. The rooms are comfortable and spotless.

We booked the Ah guesthouse as part of our month trip to SA, and the three nights we spent there ranked very high indeed. Arnold and Annalise have that knack of making people very welcome and relaxed, and having guests eat at the big table makes for some interesting conversations over breakfast. The meals produced by Arnold I would say...

Arnold and Annalise were very welcoming to their home and guest house. They both, clearly, have a natural gift for making people feel welcomed and at ease. The room which was in the eaves of the house and finished in thatch on the outside was cool and beautifully appointed with all the conveniences one could wish for. It lead onto...

Returned once again to stay with Arnold and Annalise. Their standards seem to get better. The rooms are traditional yet quirky and modern, beds supremely comfortable, bathrooms very modern and well equipped. It is a wonderful guest house, in a great location, with terrific hosts. Try and book when Arnold is cooking dinner. The "long table", where everyone sits together,...
