We booked for two nights to celebrate our anniversary and to have a mini-break. Our Ocean Suite was surperb (as was the view) and the hotel ensured that we did not forget we were there for our special day - thank you. We enjoyed the two nights so much, we extended for another day. The food and service in the restaurant was excellent, could not be faulted. We also had a spa treatment, again a great experience. We will go back for sure and a big thanks to Abraham and the team for ensuring that this was a break to remember. THANK YOU!

This amazing hotel and the people who run it are so incredibly charming and warm, you feel as if you have experienced something whole and authentic after your stay. The rooms flow onto miles of pristine west cost strand, that draw you out and clear your mind amidst the rolling waves and cool south Atlantic breeze. From that point of calm contentedness that we were lucky enough to experience from our stay, we were introduced to two very beautiful initiatives in connection with the hotel - an animal welfare initiative and a children’s outreach program. Both run with care and sensitivity and both making a noticeable positive impact. Strandloper really are doing things the right way for the right reasons and that is why it is without doubt one of the nicest places I have been lucky enough to stay... the massive bubble bath is pretty great too!

The location is excellent, the staff are very attentive and the rooms are very nice (could do with an upgrade, but still nice). The food was not the best, but the hotel is still a great small town venue.

We went to Strandloper for a Birthday getaway. The place is truly special. From the welcome drinks and the warm reception on arrival we felt really at home. All the staff are super friendly and very helpful going out of their way to make sure that we were taken care of. Even prior to arrival the communication was excellent making sure they know our preferences and also helping us to book any activities that we would like to do. We reserved one of the courtyard rooms and were fortunate to have one with a stunning nature view. The room was beautifully laid out and very cozy to sit in both inside and out if you would just want to relax. The hotel is located facing the beach and makes for wonderful morning and evening walks, they also had cute bikes available that we took on one afternoon to the Wharf on the other side of town. Great fun. (although much better on the way back as it's downhill :) ) Despite the awesome hospitality, lovely spa onsite, great bar and excellent location arguably the best experience at the hotel was the food. Leeto restaurant which is on the premises serves absolutely the best food all day long. We tried almost all the breakfast choices while there and every time it was divine. The Restaurant was also popular for dinner with non-resident walk-ins a testament to the quality of the food. The restaurant is also facing the ocean making for really pleasant dining experience especially during the day. All the staff were super friendly and very helpful and made us feel really special. The management also provided us some really pleasant surprises for our special celebration. A special mention for Wiseman and Jamie who stood out in terms of making us feel right at home and every time went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The attention to detail and special focus on each guest really made sure our time in Patenoster was enjoyable. On departure we were also given a small special gift which we made it back home with us as a memoir of our stay. Even beyond the stay the follow-up from the hotel management was really exemplary in terms of client service and hospitality. We definitely plan to visit again and would recommend it to anyone.
