We love Paternoster, but we love AH! Guesthouse even more. We have been traveling in South Africa for many years and have wondered how we could have missed this place. Nicely located on walking distance (also via the beach) to the excellent restaurants in town. Are you also the traveller who knows if a play has that something extra before...

Stunning guest house. Personal service from the owners. Spotless rooms. The absolute best food ever and a location that must be experienced. I have been there more than once and have never been disappointed. Very highly recommended.

We had high hopes for Ah! Guest House and Paternoster and neither disappointed. We had booked fairly last minute and ended up in the only remaining room (upstairs king) which was a treat from our usual budget. We are a couple in our early 30's, with grubby rucksacks and a micro car zipping around South Africa at breakneck speed! But...

Ah guest house has been our family 'home' at Christmas time for the last 6 years. Never disappointed. I ascribe their success to the warmth and perfectionism of the hosts, Arnold and Annalise. Arnold's legendary cooking skills afford one the unique opportunity to savour the culinary delights of the region "in the comfort of home". Bravo Ah!

During our month in S Africa, we stayed in many charming guesthouses, but AH! definitely wins the award for unique, lovely and unquestioningly THE BEST AND MOST INTERESTING BREAKFAST EVER! If S Africa is on your radar, RUN, don't walk to Patermoster and AH!. There is nothing else to do there other than to enjoy Arnold and Annalise' fantastic hospitality....

We stayed here (unfortunately only for one night) last month after reading reviews, and it lived up to everything. Our room was delightful and opened out to the roof terrace with amazing views of the long white sandy beach. Arnold cooked the most delicious gourmet dinner for the 10 guests staying that night, and every dish had so much attention...

Arnold and Annalies have created a fabulous welcoming space. They could not have been nicer when we arrived. We were lucky enough to be there when Arnold cooked a meal and it was superb. Each plate was a work of art and watching the two of them create each new course was like watching a dance. And to sit at...

This was our first time to Paternoster and we were guided by Tripadvisor as to where to stay. We could not have chosen a more perfect place. Everything about our stay was amazing...
