My family and I stayed at Opidraai B. The view was amazing, the staff were friendly, the cottage was clean and tidy. This is a place everyone should visit if they need some 'down time'... Loved it and will be back again.

We were six friends who went on an archaehology tour on the West coast, and stayed in Oppidraai. (One of us stayed in Abalone House.) Though it was very cold, the fireplace made it cozy, and we had an unforgettable jolly evening. Even when there was a minor problem with power plugs, the staff could not have been more attentive,...

We have however in the interim come up with a better solution to ensure that our supply does not get wet during the rains. We... More

Excellent clean accommodation. Friendly staff and a great little place that makes you feel warm and welcome. I will definitely make use of the Paternoster sea cottage again. I would suggest they put some wood in the fireplace !

What an amazing getaway! If only it was in summer to enjoy the stunning swimming pool. Staff were friendly and accommodation beautiful. Don't buy the crayfish from the fisherman that come to the door, unless it's in season. Make sure as you come into town. The fireplace's need a little servicing but still great to sit outside and overlook the... More

There was a problem with the dates we had booked but it was sorted out effortlessly and charmingly by Lee @ Abalone House.

Our only regret was that we only stayed one night. We did have cottage #2 which may have a better view than #1 but everything else was great. Made very welcome by all the staff we met. Large spacious living area with huge fireplace which we will be back to enjoy
