The Ooh la la room at AH is simply the best. The room was beautifully decorated and equipped with a full bathroom and huge bath. The three breakfasts and the chefs dinner we were priviledged to indulge were outstanding and will be the topic of conversation for time to come. Arnold and Annelise are great hosts and we recommend their...

Superb location on the west coast, very unspoilt and peaceful. The guest house is quirky with lots of thought and creativity put into the decor of each room. As it was spring and chilly in the evening, the hosts were thoughtful in putting hot water bottles in each of the guests beds ( a lovely touch !) The food is...

My husband and I are huge fans of Ah! Guesthouse, and have stayed with Arnold and Annelise at least twice a year for the last few years. And we will continue to do so! The accommodation is excellent, the attention to detail in everything from the colour scheme to the qualify of the food served at the brilliant breakfasts or...

What a find!! Travelling in the Western Cape is an awe inspiring journey, especially when the flowers are out. Had the privilege of staying at ah guest house for one night - would have happily stayed for another 4 weeks! Arnold and Annelise produced food from heaven and I would go back just for the breakfast. If travelling in the...

They even have beach bags & beach towels available in each room. The owner is a gourmet chef who clearly enjoys himself in the kitchen. Breakfast was a treat which has to be...

I am not sure where to start, with the hosts or rooms or the fabulous dining experiences? Arnold and Annelise are the perfect hosts, making you feel at home straight away. It was great to come in after a day out and watch Arnold preparing for dinner or chatting with Annelise while she packed up the lovely shortbread you find...

One of the best places I have ever stayed. So simple but so full of details that make the great difference. It is well situated in the quiet side of the town. It was winter and the last surprise was the warm water bag in my bed. Details like fresh milk in the mini bar, a small kitchenette, a beach...

A visit to Paternoster and to Ah! is a must for me on my travels to South Africa. I have stayed here many times. Each time, there is always something new, whether it's a piece of art or something new on the menu. But what never changes is Arnold and Annalise's hospitality and attention to detail. Arnold's food just gets...
