Seldom have we spent time at such a perfect location! Apart from the ocean being visible from every window, the character of the interior is exquisite. As we were a group of friend we had the opportunity to see and appreciate all the rooms which are all beautifully furnished and built with doors and windows from a bygone era full...

A peaceful and enjoyable break with a spectacular view, fantastic service and 50 whales as a bonus. Good restaurant recommendations and bookings too. The staff were all incredible. A better map from the airport would have been very useful.

Gorgeous location. Booking and welcoming staff above average. Bed extremely uncomfortable. Pillows thin and lumpy. TV screen tiny. Breakfast minimal choice but classy service. Decor dated. Towels first class.

This was the first time we had stayed at Oyerstercathers and we were very impressed with our room, but there is some money that needs to be spent on updating, i.e. window frames etc, The positioning of the property being so close to the beach was ideal. We also thought that the breakfast was a delightful surprise and very well...

Perfect location, beautiful décor, scrumptious breakfast. Sarah's compassion, friendliness and deeply personal attention to every guest made this a weekend to remember. Safe and easy access to the beach. Unmistakably Paternoster.

We received a lovely welcome from Sarah who made us tea and biscuits as we had arrived a little early and our room wasn't quite ready. We had the King Suite Room 3 upstairs. Very spacious bedroom and living area, shower, bathrobes. Balcony small but lovely to sit out in the afternoon. Beautiful views from the windows to the beach....
