Dear Arnold and Annalise. Thank you again for hosting us on our recent visit at AH! Guesthouse in Paternoster. Once again the two of you went out of your way to make us feel comfortable and welcome; returning to your beautiful home is always food for the soul.

Arnold your dinner preparation and presentation has gone to a stratospheric level. The dishes are filled with flavour layers, taste sensations and textures. We loved every bite and often look back at the photos as a reminder of the wonderful dining experience we were privileged to enjoy.

Your home remains beautiful and modern and without any complexities or fuss. Every corner is filled with hidden treasures and treats.

Good luck and may you bask in your continued successes.

We spent a beautiful night in this great guesthouse, as we had booked for the Jazz Concert at Tietiesbaai. What a treat it was, and I was sorry that we could not enjoy Arnold's food as we were at the Jazz, as here is a chef who is passionate about his art of cooking, and it is a pleasure watching him prepare the menu for the guests. He is at the top of his game, and we were lucky just to savour a beautiful decadent breakfast, which included a Burnt fig and Caramel Icecream on French toast ,which we followed with a long walk along the Paternoster beach.

Had a great two night stay. The hosts were very friendly and if you get the chance you must dine in, Arnold is a great cook but a bit expensive.
Our room was very clean and well thought out.
Great place to go to get out of the city to relax.

We stayed here for 2 nights and we had an amazing time, thank you.
Great service and attention to detail. Nice pool and design. |Very relaxing. Nice seaside village next to the sea. (Was sad to see the poverty in the black area where there is a lot of unemployment and will be nice to see the business getting involved creating more jobs. Although this hotel was employing local people.)
Highly recommended.

Just had a marvellous stay with Arnold and Annalise at ah! It was our second visit. Love the ambience of the guest house - a place to chill out and relax. The rooms are comfortable and spotless.
On arrival we head down the beach and walk for miles! Paternoster is a charming west coast village and worth including in your SA itinerary.
Arnold's three course breakfasts are not to be missed. Also, his dinners are a "must" if you are lucky to be there on the nights he is cooking! Would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
