It was a wonderful stay in this tasteful furnished guesthouse. We were warmly welcomed and have never before enjoyed such a wonderful prepared breakfast on one of our trips. We had also luck to take part on a 5-course menu. It was a gourmet dinner that was extraordinary. During the breakfast and this dinner the guests sit together at a large table and can see how the hosts prepare the food. This is done with so much love for the details on an excellent niveau! That made our stay to something special that we will never forget. We hope to return to this guesthouse sometime. Many thanks again to the wonderful and charming hosts!

A small guest house close to the end of the beach in a sleepy ex-fishing village now turned trendy weekend bolt-hole for Capetonians. White building, beautiful design based on old fishing cottages, comfortable bed in well-equipped and artistic bedroom (eg a ladder as the headboard). The public areas are aesthetically decorated and welcoming. Hosts Arnold and Anneliese offer and elegant and tasteful stay that you just sink into. Arnold is a top chef-turned-B&B owner, who provides the most cheffy breakfast I have ever had. Twice-cooked soufflé is a dish I've never even had at dinner! And ice cream is not a traditional breakfast ingredient. Sometimes, not every night, Arnold will cook dinner, if there are enough guests interested. Please be interested! This is a chef's

This was our 7th time in this fabulous accommodation and again we stayed for an entire week .....to unwind and enjoy the company of Arnold and Annalise and the exquisite food ! As I have stated before in my other reviews; this guest house is what a real vacation is all about ! Book chef's dinner if you get the chance ; do not miss out on this excellent food Arnold makes . Everything is fresh and you will find him working in the kitchen all day preparing the dinner . Forget Wolfgat and choose wisely !

Ah! Guest house is situated at the end of the fabulous Paternoster beach. The house is very well kept and the rooms are nicely decorated. There are several terraces - one with a spectacular view of the beach and the sea. But what makes a stay here very memorable are the owners - Annalise and Arnold Hoon. They are truly great hosts in all respects, besides that Arnold is an excellent chef. He makes wonderful breakfasts and also dinners at special requests. We had a fantastic stay in this informal, low key setting but with upscale services. Don't miss it!
