we visited Paternoster during our trip to South Africa. The accommodation was recommended in our guide book so we tried to book it. Although originally booked only for one night, immediately after the arrival we decided to stay another night because the place was just perfect. Ideally located at the footsteps of the beach, with beautiful views of the sea,...

Fab place, fab breakfast and lovely staff. We stayed in room 2 which had its own roof terrace. They had even booked restaurants in the village for us for the three nights we were there. The walk to the village is a pleasant 10/15 minutes. There is a fully stocked fridge and mini_bar.

Located on the beach, with breath taking views.The 3 days at Oyster Catchers Haven was an absolute treat and the ideal place to retreat. The furnishings and decor, the friendly service of Sarah and her team,the tasty well presented breakfast all made our stay a memorable time.Will definitely return,next time to the Mandela room.I found the matress quite hard.

Near the sea the view was very nice. The furniture very old. Need to be modernised! TV very small nearly impossible to watch a programme. Nice breakfast but started late at 8.30. In the evening doors were closed before 8 p.m.

We stayed at this beautiful guesthouse for a long weekend and everything was superb. The staff are very attentive but not intrusive. The views, the comfort of the room and the breakfast were all excellent.

It takes a while to go from Cape Town to Paternoster but the journey is well worth it. Not only do you get to see a different country side but at the end of the journey you find a delightful fishing town and a great B&B. Very nice cottage with just a few rooms, superb view and ..... what a...

A lovely establishment right on the beach. The breakfast was delicious and Sarah was most helpful. Before our arrival, she made all the necessary restaurant reservations and on the morning of our departure, she produced two beautifully packed snack boxes for our trip. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Spent a lovey stay at one of the most beautiful places I've visited. The guesthouse was very comfortable with lovely location right on the beach and the vue from the room was breath taking. Lovely staff and beautiful breakfast. Several very good restaurants close by. Would love to return as soon as possible.

A very charming little guesthouse with a big view. The decor is eclectic -- I loved the orientalist prints -- and the total effect is one of peacefulness and care. The staff are wonderful. Greetings to Sarah and Abigail!
