This is our 4th visit to Strandloper. This year they have made a big improvement with the addition of the new restaurant Leetho. Under the excellent management of Jill this hotel is a great place to stay and chill out with long walks on the nearly deserted beach. Problem with Paternoster is that the 2 or 3 restaurants in the...

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....
