Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Paternoster
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I was absolutely greated with a relaxing and luxurous environment at the Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel after the drive from Cape Town, by the warm and friendly owners Simone and Deon and the team of friendly staff.
Staying in a courtyard room on my own, I had everything there to enjoy my time. The courtyard is decked out with comfortable chairs, an outdoor shower and a relaxing water feature.
The surroundings of the hotel are just amazing, long stretches of beach, just a step away from the room. The food is fantastic, you just have, really have to try the crayfish, made by the chef.....!
What I do wonder is why this hotel is graded with just 4 stars in tripadvisor, because to my knowledge it is a 5 star accomodation and it is definitely worth all the 5 stars.
Having stayed in the Strandloper Sea Villas before, this is what I expected and more.....!

Room Tip: I stayed in an courtyard room, and even though there is no ocean view, still a great room to stay in...

Paternoster is a nice little and calm town, absolutely worth a visit and the Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel is the place you want to stay. The view from the ocean suite room - even from the bed - is breathtaking. The rooms are furnished tastefully and the terrace is sheltered, so that the wind doesn't matter any more in this place. Don't miss a dinner in the Standloper restaurant - when we were there it was gorgeous. Deon and his team are simply the most wonderful hosts you can think of in the most wonderful place in Paternoster.
The Spa is already in planning and will soon complete the offer of this beautiful place, that we can highly recommend!

We absolutely loved the Strandloper. We arrived late on a really windy day and immediately relaxed after a long drive. Dion, the owner was so friendly and he has hired a fantastic team who really looked after us from the moment we arrived. We were in an ocean suite room, overlooking the beach and the sea but set up so you have your own space and it is beautifully decorated. The extra touches they arrange are just fab - a fire lit in the evening, hot water bottles in the bed. The breakfast was great, afternoon tea was a wonderful touch and we dined in the restaurant and had local crayfish one evening which was lovely. We are back in London, UK now but if we spent more time in South Africa we would be back very soon! Thanks or a great break!

I finally found heaven in Patternoster, the Strandloper ocean Boutique Hotel is exactly what my partner and I were looking for: beauty, impeccable attention to detail, great service and friendly staff, all of that in outstanding beauty. Efficiency without being obvious, class, style and customer understanding.
We had the best 4 days of our last 10 years and have already booked again in February with all our family.
We have stayed in some great hotels all around the world but this is the first time I had the urge to write about it. Just superb, a real Gem with pleasure all the way.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, we had a Ocean view suite which was outstanding, very sheltered from wind.

We have made annual visits to Paternoster for years and our stay at the new Strandloper made our most recent sojourn the best so far - we discovered a new passion for Paternoster. Strandloper enjoys the best location of the village - seclusion from the wind and far from the madding crowd. The staff treated us like friends, efficient and unobtrusive. The suites were contemporary and spacious, well-maintained, private and very tastefully decorated. The food was fresh and healthy (best orange juice ever!) and the attention to detail was beyond fault. But we'll remember the friendly and charming staff and management most and can't wait to return to Strandloper in Feb. Excellent value for money - I would love to keep it a secret, but you have to go! Francois & Tania

We travel a lot and have stayed in our fair share of amazing hotels. This...is in our top 5 in the world!
The attention to detail and exquisite location of the hotel (on a beautiful beach) are only a couple of many outstanding qualities you get to experience here. The decor of the hotel is modern, clean and comfortable - with particular emphasis on keeping things local and eco-friendly. In a few words, the place is gorgeous.
We were so impressed with the service - the staff is attentive and always there to help.
One of my personal favorite experiences was waking up in the morning and looking out at the waves directly from our bed...and then going out for a surf. Doesn't get better than this!
Breakfast is fresh and delicious - and the mid afternoon complimentary tea time (with delicious fresh baked cakes) reminds you that you are on vacation.
Oh...and if you need to be online (wifi) this hotel probably has the best and reliable internet connection in South Africa.
There are many little touches and surprises that I will just let you experience once you get there - bottom line, don't hesitate or think twice if there is availability. This place and all its staff and owner are beyond special.

Room Tip: We chose a sea suite room but check out the nature suite - it has its own lounge area - huge.

Paternoster is a delightful destination which we know and love. The discovery of this hotel gives us even more incentive to return there.
This hotel is beautifully decorated in a minimalist style with spacious,individual suites reflecting the best of African decor incorporating the natural colors and materials of the surrounding sand dunes, sea and unspoiled nature. Fantastic views. The staff are very friendly providing personal service. Simone, the Manager on site was charming, accommodating and attune to small, personal details such as an evening fire in the fireplace, cake and tea etc. Excellent breakfast and dinner by chef, Lovegood. We are very frequent travelers and found this to be a truly delightful experience and one to be repeated.
This hotel and staff are focused on service and quality. We will return and highly recommend the hotel.
