We have been there the second time and it was great again. We also would come back. It is a place to relax and to enjoy life. The service is good, even there is room for improvement, but on a high level. Everyone tries to give his/her best. The rooms are awesome.

We cannot rate this hotel enough. The architecture,the styling,the food,the layout which guarantees complete privacy and the wonderful staff...were all faultless! We were desperate to prolong our stay but unfortunately they were fully booked. We absolutely loved every minute and aspect of it. The manageress Gill makes a point of saying goodbye,along with a little gift as well. Lovely touch....

At Strandloper's everything was perfect: the room, the food, the wine, the people, the surroundings, the birds, the other wildlife and last but not least Paternoster itself. We will most definitely return!

We stayed for 3 nights at the Strandloper Ocean Boutique hotel. The hotel exceeded all our expectations. Gill, hotel manager, went out of her way to make our stay memorable.
