Guest House doesn't do this justice.Beautifully laid out and equipped rooms but for me the experience of Dinner being prepared and served by Arnold & Annalise in front of me was unforgettable.It was wonderful and i highly recommend that guests book Dinner together with their rooms.The quality was exceptional and must rate alongside some of the best in South Africa.Now...

My husband and I stayed at the guest house for two nights, a booking we made based on other travelers' reviews. I am a foodie but for some reason I was not aware that I will be staying at a top cheff's house, what a pleasant surprise. The breakfast is served plated, gourmet style with all guests dining around one...

This guest house has many attributes, a fantastic location near the beach, beautiful rooms and fantastic hosts. What makes it a little different room other top guest houses is the fact that owner/manager Arnold is also a top class chef, He doesn't cook every night so you need to check in advance but If you are lucky you will enjoy...

Ah Guest House is very different from the many excellent guest houses in South Africa - it feels like it's made with a personal touch thanks to Anelise and Arnauld. The rooms are lovely with excellent comfy bedding and fluffy towels, you feel like a special guest. Then what makes this venue is different is the fantastic food presented by...

Wonderful tranquil get away beside the beach. Gastronomic experience! Annalise and Arnold are highly experienced and nothing is left to chance. After five years visiting we cannot wait to come again next year.

My husband and I stayed just two nights at Ah! Guest House and having been twice before to Paternoster I read the TA reviews and just could not go anywhere else! The house itself was lovely, delightful, quirky interior design and immaculate housekeeping. The position in the village was very quiet but very close to the wonderful beach.I knew this...

Spent four nights at Ah last month and really enjoyed it. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Great location for long walks on the beach or simply relax at the guest house. Arnold and Annalise are charming hosts and the food is magnificent! We'll be back!

We visit Paternoster each year for some laid back West Coast living, with miles of beautiful beaches, in this pretty white village by the sea. We use Ah! each time for its comfortable artistic style and owner Arnold's wonderful meals. We have been eating Arnold's food at least once per visit for several years now and it never fails to...
