What a place! No bad points at all - just superb! We stayed for 3 nights, and luck for us Arnold was cooking for 2 of them! You don't need to have any lunch if you are eating here - the food is just amazing! Breakfast was later than most b&b's must that was just as well - beacuse we...

We stayed at Ah! just over a week ago and had the most perfect time. Very happy we booked dinner for one of the nights as it was super yummy! Breakfast was also huge and delicious. The whole place is decorated so nicely and Arnold and Annalise are very welcoming. I found it hard to drag myself away from their...

We ate with Arnold at Ah! Guest House in early November. Food, wine and company were all superb. This is a terrific way of meeting other travellers around a communal dining table which is placed so that everyone can interact with Arnold the chef. I'd highly recommend that you book to eat here (and stay too if you'd like to...

Arnold and Annalise make a wonderful team - cooking simply delicious meals in their open kitchen for you to enjoy with fellow guests. We had a starter of wild mushroom risotto topped with oxtail stuffed squid, followed by a warm salad of pear and slow cooked pork, then smoked angelfish open ravioli, and finished with hazelnut meringue. Make sure you...

We spent two nights at Ah! at the end of our 18 day holiday in S Africa - I found it via the web and Trip Adviser. The rooms are very comfortable - the bed in ours was huge and very comfortable. The views from our room were great - right along the beach. There is a great sitting room...

I didn't stay at the Ah! Guest House but attended one of their legendary dinner parties in celebration of my birthday. The food was incredible - gastronomic delights! What a unique way to meet people from all walks of life and cultures - and it all works perfectly!

My wife and I stayed in this cottage style guest house in late June 2009. We loved the place and the people who run it (Arnold and Annelise) who were very welcoming and accommodating. Arnold is a great Chef and the food was fantastic. We stayed for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed a lot longer. We highly...

We decided to explore the Atlantic coast and loved the description of Paternoster ( a lovely fishing village with totally unspoilt beach) and - being foodies -the Ah! Guest House in particular. We absolutely loved it and it is "a must visit" on our next trip. The place is a converted and upgraded cottage with large kitchen/ dining area and...

At the last minute we decided to spend a couple of nights in Paternoster instead of Langebaan. We were pleased we did as Paternoster is a much nicer, prettier and laid back place. The icing on the cake was staying and eating at the Ah! Guest House. Unfortunately they could only accommodate us for 1 night. (We stayed in another...

This was the start to our month long holiday in the Cape and what a start. Paternoster is a quiet, sleepy fishing village with a fantastic beach. Arnold and Annalise at Ah Guest House are the perfect hosts. We stayed in the yellow room, which was large, bright and airy and had the most comfortable beds ever. All the small...
