The guesthouse is beautifully decorated with lots of art. Our room had a king size bed and was also beautifully decorated, serviced every day. It is very peaceful and perfect for a good night sleep. We could not have diner at the guesthouse since they just returned home from a well deserved holiday the same day. This means we have...

Words failed us! Everything and more! Well deserved excellent ratings. The most wonderful hosts and private dining by Arnold is a MUST, probably the best meal we've ever had, the preparation and casual chat was all part of the experience. A real pleasure and many thanks, definitely returning. Many many thanks Miles & Jan x

Had three delightful nights here staying in the very pretty Aha room which is downstairs with irs own little patio. Arnold and Annelize are perfect hosts looking after your every need. As others say the breakfasts are amazing and I loved the French toasts with ice cream every morning. On Sunday we enjoyed one of Arnold's "long tables". A true...

In one word: PERFECT! Lovely decorated & furnished rooms (I recommend aaah-room, a king/twin upstairs with facing the terrace and the ocean), wonderful house and hosts and a really charming village with some cute shops and restaurants. Incredibly yummy breakfast (handmade icecream for dessert) and: if you have the opportunity to join an evening when Arnold is cooking for his...

This guest house is a must for everybody who loves a special breakfast. A big salute to the chef. The rooms very comfortable and clean, with a perfect view. A short distance walk towards the sea, for the early birds.

Before we arrived in Paternoster we really didn't know what to expect. But what a great place to spend a couple of days. The cute white houses with the colored shutters, the quiet sandy beach, the lovely people....we really enjoyed ourselves. The Ah! B&B is a great find and located at the very end of the Paternoster beach. We stayed...

We enjoyed our time at this beautiful establishment very much, which from our point of view, offers the best breakfast in the Western Cape. We also enjoyed an unforgettable evening in the company of fellow guests around the communal table whilst watching Arnold & Annalise creating their Chef’s Table Dinner exclusively for their guests. This event takes place in their...

A perfect stay with wonderful hosts. Cosy rooms, a relaxed atmosphere at the big table together with other guests. You start with a lecker breakfast and in the evening you enjoy a delicous three star Dinner. And don't forget the view on the large sandy beach from the terrace.
