I can honestly say it was the worst place we ever stayed in paternoster. Shabby decor and outdated. Dirty, uncomfortable and a very noisy toiled and a dirty sky light above the bed that lets the sun shine on your face early in the morning. No rest whatsoever

Wow, possibly the worst place we have ever stayed in...... We visit Paternoster once a month and like to try new places but this past weekend we hit rock bottom. On our way there we received a text in bad afrikaans asking when would be arriving. Had we not been SA we would have had no idea what it was... More

The word that best describes my stay in Paternoster Coves is CHARM. We felt as though we weren't staying in an establishment but our own little home. You are left to come and go for the duration of your stay. The four poster bed, antique furniture and unique style of the owner make it like no hotel you'll stay at.... More

The stairs were not age friendly....The windows were few and could not open...We felt claustrophobic...wanted to check out immediately. The entire place was even too small for 2 persons.

The Bokkom room is very comfortable and well equipped wih kitcenette containg, stove, fridge, microwave, etc. Arrangement to share the deck and top lounge area with other guests was a bit awkward. Terrific view of the beach and ocean. We'll certainly be back.

I truly enjoyed the stay here. The self catering unit (Krefie) was spacious and clean and had everything one needs. The view is spectacular and a big braai area makes the stay so much more comfortable. You can really feel at home when staying at the Paternoster Coves.

What a beautiful house situated in the right place overlooking the ocean. My husband and I were the only 2 people and had the whole guesthouse for ourselves. We stayed in the "Krefie" room. Beautifully decorated. The place was immaculately. Neat and tidy.The bed was amazingly comfy. The "Patat" room was amazing. Everything that you need to make your stay... More

Self catering units which are part of a family home. Our unit had a curtain behind which was a glass partition into family home. Decoration was "quaint" with loads of nicknacks which was overly busy and cluttered and not to our taste. For some reason there were only 3 chairs round kitchen table. Although unit only for 2 it would... More

Beautiful place to stay, well looked after with stunning decor and a view to die for. Hope to be back soon. We truly enjoyed staying at Paternoster Coves, we all had our own rooms but could still spend time together in the entertainment area.

Crisp white bedding and well equipped. Reubens next door is awesome! The only problem is the shower in Krefie. Unless you're shorter than 1.685m you will have the worst head-ache ever like my hubby!! Patat is absolutely gorgeous! The view and sunsets are spectacular!
