We couldn't decide what to do for our 20th anniversary, so we left everything to the last minute. However there were a few things that we weren't looking for...not a hotel room where you feel like you sleeping in a box, must have privacy without feeling isolated! Must have...sea views, stunning location, clean and stylish bedroom. I can confirm that... More

When a friend was planning a getaway for her special birthday she asked me for my suggestions...I gave her a list but in the end she decided on Paternoster because, friends of hers " own a guesthouse overlooking the sea..." I had only been to the fishing village on the Cape's West Coast once before but it left such a... More

Paternoster Dunes is well located and the service is excellent - Gavin and the team did an exceptionally good job! The Red Room is well appointed, clean, and has good access from the street. Recommend the deck for sundowners and the view of the beach during sunset. Gavin's restaurant bookings were also very good, with Noisy Oyster taking the cake... More

We stayed in the separate cottage overlooking the sea. The cottage was 5 star and beautifully presented. It was pure indulgence. The service was outstanding. Gavin made everything happen for our engagement.

Our stay here came at the end of our holiday via Johannesberg, Grahamstown, Capetown and the Cederberg Mountains. It was everything we could have wished for. Even the dinner bookings made for us in advance were what we would have chosen, though the meal on the last night disappointed. (Not Gavin's fault). Easy trip back to Capetown on the day... More

I proposed on the beach in front of this guest house. The team assisted me with setting everything up. We stayed in the Vanilla suite which literally touches the ocean's edge. Our evening dinner reservation was already in place (and we had an amazing dish at The Noisy Oyster)... Everything was easy and relaxing and exactly what I had envisioned... More

Finally got round to staying at Dunes - and Gavin it was amazing. Staff and Rooms exceptional. Breakfast was delicious. Walks on the beach in the evening and early morning just so peaceful and heavenly. I hope I get to stay here many many more times. Definitely the best Guest House we have stayed in.

My wife and I stayed at Paternoster Dunes for a weekend. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to stay on one more night. Gavin very kindly gave us the extra night at half price. The breakfasts were incredible, as were the views from our patio and all round service and experience. I'd happily recommend Paternoster Dunes to anyone... More

Dear David. Thank you for your review when staying at our self catering unit Dune Ridge.

We stayed here in 2011 but it has got better over that time. We were given a great welcome by Keathleen who was excellent throughout our stay. We stayed in Rose which opens on to the beach and is excellently furnished. A great treat on our first night was a Crayfish dinner inhouse followed by one at The Noisy Oyster(excellent)... More

Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night but what a beautiful and peaceful place. We stayed in the tranquil room, beautifully decorated with a little side door that lead to the beach. There is a great lounge upstairs where you can chill and where breakfast is served with a panoramic view of the sea and beach. Breakfast is small, quaint... More
