Welcoming. A relaxing break from the city with the best views in the world. Spacious, clean rooms, big bathrooms and a balcony sunset to die for. Breakfasts are filing and different every morning. A great surprise.

The location of the property is great, on the beach and a walk away from several restaurants. There is some construction going on that is not great but once this is out of the way it should be fine. I suggest you check this before you book your room. The kitchen and cleaning personnel are friendly and helpful. The manager left me with the impression that she is just going through the motions and is not all that interested in making one's stay memorable. We booked a stay for 3 days and we were 4 guests yet we were allocated the smallest rooms. It was cold and rainy and would have made a difference if the fire was lit and one could sit in the dining/living room area. There are many small ways you can make your guests feel welcome and make their stay pleasant. I am not sure why guests rave about the plated breakfast, it is what is to be expected at a four-star establishment. The interior is lovely but the place lacks soul.

Right on the rocks in Paternoster lies Linhof Boutique Guesthouse. You cannot get any closer to the gorgeous little beach and sunsets. Less than a 2 hour drive from Cape Town, makes it the perfect weekend escape to breathe and re-charge. Welcomed by Mariana, and shown to a well-appointed room, en-suite with amenities, coffee and tea, and off course glasses for those sunset wine sipping on your balcony. Breakfast is healthy with a personal touch and a nice break from greasy eggs & bacon. Linhof is within walking distance of the town centre, where you can explore various seafood restaurants, enjoy cocktails and browse some odd & sodd stores. I will highly recommend Linhof to anyone looking for a true seaside escape with warm West Coast Hospitality.

This small guesthouse is in a lovely location right on the beach, with gorgeous views from our room’s windows and balcony overlooking the sea, beach, and sunsets. The weather wasn’t nice enough to enjoy the beach or balcony much, unfortunately, but it was lovely nonetheless. Our room was well appointed, with high ceiling, a very comfortable bed with nice linens, good AC unit for heat. It had good internet, and TV with a few channels. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful, and we were able to enjoy the main area downstairs for drinks with our friends before dinner (with social distancing), as we 3 couples were the only guests. As other reviewers have noted, the breakfasts were excellent – an egg muffin cup (like an omelette with spinach, bacon, cheese, etc in the shape of a large muffin) one day, incredibly delicious lobster and eggs on toast another; with fruit, coffee, juice. The guesthouse is a short walk from the shops and harbor (and famous Wolfgat restaurant) of Paternoster, and you can take a nice walk along the coast to the lighthouse and beyond to Tittiesbaai (or further)…Even in the chilly, somewhat rainy weather, the scenery was gorgeous and beach with big clouds (and rainbows) dramatic. We enjoyed our 2-night stay very much.

Snuck away on the rocks lies this cosy guest house where my husband and I enjoyed two gloriuos days. Our room allowed us to sit on the balcony right on the rocks with a complete vista of the sea before us. Perfect position for a sundowner and a glorious sunset! The rooms are kept extremely clean. The bathroom unfortunately was rather small and I felt that the toilet was too close to the toilet door and thus the bed. The breakfast was more than adequate and the staff hospitable.
