The Oystercatchers Haven is a beautiful house, right on the beach. The rooms all have a sea view, are well equipped and spacious . Sarah, the manager, and the entire staff are very service minded and helpful. Sarah made all the restaurant bookings for us. As Paternoster is a busy place, you have to book your meals! Breakfast at Oystercatchers...

We had stunning views of the coastline from every window. Sarah is a delightful and helpful host. She had booked us into excellent local restaurants for each night of our stay. When the weather was calm enough we had breakfast served to us on our own terrace. We had a fantastic time and I would stay there again or recommend...

We were in two rooms and every effort to accommodate us was made. We decided to 'picnic' in as we had been out for lunch. We asked whether it was possible and extra chairs and a tablecloth was presented and we enjoyed our sundowners and picnic on the private balcony. Breakfast was great! The staff were great!.

Beautiful B&B full of character. Loved that they pre-booked awesome restaurants for us. Our room was secluded and it felt as if we were the only ones there. They made us breakfast on the patio every morning. All we did was rest and eat! It was awesome!

The Oystercatcher's Haven is a pleasant small pension on the beach. Rooms and people are charming, breakfast is yummy yummy with an incredible omelette and homemade granola. It's a nice and peaceful place to stay, delightful and old-fashioned in a pleasant way.

Peaceful with only the sound of the sea which you can see from the bed (Room 3). Right by the rock at the end of town so easy to walk straight onto the beach / rocks. Tiny pool all you need if you don't fancy the sea. Friendly welcome and breakfast better than the norm. Would go back.

The perfect position on the beach. President Mandela stayed there. Our room had a nice balcony from which to enjoy the breathtaking view. Service was good. A little amateurish but friendly. The lodge needs a revamp and new decor. Too much clutter. Our room closes with a padlock! Not acceptable when you claim 4stars. Furniture has seen better days. No...

Breathtaking sea view right on the beach. Ideal position. President Mandela stayed at this lodge. We were in the same room. It has a nice balcony from where one can really unwind. Sadly the decor was cluttered. Too much stuff in the rooms and the basics don't work. Needed a padlock to close. Lighting insufficient. Bed sagging. No bathroom door....
