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 about.
When we arrived I had to phone this person to come.
The room....musty from not being aired, no light, no view, missing light bulbs and tired decor. The net over the bed was filthy including some dead flies.
The sheets were threadbare.
The wifi was non existent.
I was given keys and told I was in charge of the alarm.... really, I was a guest not the manager.
We were also advised that we could not use the common area as it had been booked!!
AND.....The toilet cistern was damaged and made a screaming noise throughout our stay. On asking the 'manager' about it this morning he advised me that it had been doing that for some time.... HOW can you still charge for a room when there is a fault such as this and to cap it all the manager told us that the owners knew about it.
How this place got a 4 star rating escapes me.

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. What a find!

The room booked was for self catering. We were glad it was the case as from the time we found our way to the room...We were disappointed. 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. Too much furniture in this small area. Sorry but we will never stay here again and also not recommend it to anyone.

Hi Audrey i am sorry that you are feeling this way.Did you ask for a groundfloor unit ?I don not agree with you that the unit is too small for 2 people.Windows can open.We had very good reviews from people that stayed there in Bokkom not long before you.Paternoster Coves were also voted the Best Establishment in Paternoster for Sleeping Out 2015.

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.
