First of all, the hotels own website does not do this little gem full justice! We thought it would be good. It's much better! I'd say it's one of the best little boutique hotels l've stayed at. Sometimes they can get a little 'too much', if you get my point. Not this one. A perfect balance of cool design, sophistication...

Paternoster is as cute as a button and the hotel exterior design reflects the local architecture. Public spaces are 'cool seaside style' and the outdoor seating and pool areas are inviting. I got rather carried away when booking by the description of the courtyard rooms and decided they would be spacious enough, something of a mistake, as at least the...

What a beautiful place! Unfortunately, we only managed to stay at Strandloper for one night as the hotel is very well booked. It was worth it though. The rooms are very large, tastefully decorated, with a stunning sea view. The staff was very friendly and dinner was extraordinary. We will hopefully get the chance to visit Paternoster again.

Fantastic location right beside a long white sandy beach and as at the end of Paternoster it also faces out to the countryside - a real wow moment sitting having a welcome drink on the terrace while checking in.

My husband and I have been to South Africa twice before so this is our third time. We wanted to go somewhere different and picked Paternoster. We have not been disappointed the beach is gorgeous, the views inland as well as Ocean are spectacular. It is a quiet place, so you have to be into long walks by the sea,...

1,5 hours driving from Cape Town we arrived in a little village at the beach called Paternoster. All the houses are white and it really looks like a postcard from the 20th century. At the very end of the road there is Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel. It looks like a movie. The staff is very nice and our room with...
