Our stay at Oppidraai was absolutely lovely. The apartment was spotless and had every amenity that was needed. There was a problem with the dates we had booked but it was sorted out effortlessly and charmingly by Lee @ Abalone House. The staff and food @ Reuben's @ Abalone House was fantastic and definitely added to the beauty of the... More

I would like to thank Dina and her team for upgrading my friends and I to Seaside Cottage 1 after there was a mistake with our original booking. Dina went out of her way to make us feel special. Seaside Cottage is so beautiful, panoramic sea-views, own pool and so cosy with two fireplaces. We loved the ambiance, the decor... More

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

This was our second time in Paternoster but our first staying at the Paternoster Seaside Cottages. The accommodation was great - lovely and spacious with our own pool. The sea view was amazing and location was in the centre of town, down a small hill to the beach. The only down side to the cottage is that there is a... More

Oppidraii-house has big space and a huge terrace with beautiful look at the ocean. Mildew in the shower, dirt and dust in the drawers, no pilows on the lawn chair, malfunctioned hot-water and hairdryer were not nice. All in all it looks old-fashioned.

I an e-mail directly to Abalone House reception, I have cautioned on the nasty smell in the two en-suite bathrooms. A murky smell of mould which was not really becoming a luxury accomodation. And it didn't disappear although we used both bathrooms so it wasn't caused by staying empty for a prolonged period. In the morning, quite a few cockroaches... More

Quiet and comfortable just like the town. Beautiful sunsets and great restaurants close buy. Exploring the West Coast and using this as a base is perfect. Difficult to find the premises and the booking didn't make it clear where to pick up the keys or check in.

very nice , clean and perfect place to stay. feeling that it is a bit out priced for the south african market. i would like to visit again for longer if the rate was more market related. very nice town and people are friendly.
