My wife and I needed a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and decided on Paternoster being the town of choice. After a quick search on Tripadvisor, we immediately decided on Mosselbank B&B. Koos and Petro are lovely and hospitable hosts. They are also clearly very good at making a fantastic breakfast! The room itself was spotless... More

Petro and Koos really made us feel at home, Petro took a lot of trouble to get us reservations each night in a different restaurant (apparently it can be a challenge to get in) and even gave us an early breakfast because we had to leave to the airport. The room was spacious and furnished simply but comfortable. We enjoyed... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay at Mosselbank B&B. The rooms were cosy and comfortable and the breakfast was very nice. 50m from the beach as well. They also recommended a good restaurant for our dinner. We will be back next time we are passing through!

Our second stay here - and in the same room (by request) bourganvilia. Friendly, family run guest house with good breakfast and spotless rooms. Small but adequate bedroom, bathroom/shower but very comfortable bed/pillows. Fridge and TV in room. Fresh milk in the fridge and sports channels on TV.

We stayed at Mosselbank about 3 years ago. When we were in South Africa 2 weeks ago we decided to visit Paternoster again---and chose Mosselbank again. It is not on the beach and not all rooms have views. But the accommodation is very good. The hosts are wonderfull and always helpful. Breakfast-- again wonderful. You can eat in the comfortable...

We had planned on staying just one night in Paternoster. But we felt so welcomed and genuinely cared for that we stayed four nights at the quiet end of Paternoster.This family run B&B may not be new but it is spotlessly clean and cared for. After a good nights sleep in comfy beds it is just a few steps onto... More

We turned up without a booking one Tuesday evening and were given a lovely welcome by the friendly owners. Although there were no upstairs rooms left (with a balcony and sea view) our downstairs room was still beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable indeed. The owners gave us lots of great recommendations, booked dinner for us, and the... More

This was my first time travelling to South Africa, my partner has previously stayed at this fantastic B&B located right on the beach. This homely family run B&B has amazing surroundings and views of the South Atlantic and their wonderfully warm and hospitable service really does make this guest house stand out miles above the rest. Rooms are spacious, secure... More

Enjoy the Atlantic with the beach on your doorstep. Friendly owners who know and love the area and the rest of Africa and its birdlife. Pity the seine netting fishing boats did not find a shoal for us to help haul in. But still a perfect one-night stay with friendly family producing breakfast.
