Farr Out Guesthouse
Ranked #4 of 19 Paternoster B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Where to start! A stunning location just outside Paternoster, exactly as described on the website. The rooms are excellently appointed, clean and well serviced, with exceptional time given to small details. You must use the outdoor wood fired hot tub in the evening, watching the darkness fall and the stars appear - stunning. Breakfast was just right, and again attention to detail. Marion is a great hostess, and I will certainly be returning!

Hello Julie!
Thanks for your review specifically for those who are in doubt of making use of the Hot Tub! Next time you should try the Wigwam for accommodation and go with Deon for a Beach Buggy trip. Don't wait all the way to the flower season...All the best! Marion and Deon

Great hospitality, friendly and helpful owners who enjoyed taking care of us.
The garden is beautiful, lots of attention to detail, a birds and birder's paradise. The view is fantastic.
Will definitely be back and highly recommend it!

Hello Martina and Cliff.

We stayed in the Oyser Room on the 1st floor and really enjoyed sitting on our patio, overlooking Paternoster and the sea and enjoyed wonderful privacy as well as excellent hospitality. We will be back.

Unique spot with friendly and hospitable hosts, Marion and Deon, who made us feel welcome. Marion was helpful in accommodating my special dietary requirements and I MUST recommend the outdoor hot tub!
The guesthouse is a treasure trove of local art and crafts and I loved the Bird Pub!

Hi Meryl. Glad you liked Farr Out and could even experience some typical West Coast food! Would love to share the beautiful flower season with you, consider to visit again in September when the flowers are showing off at their best! May all your dreams come true in 2014! Marion and Deon

My sister and I were booked into Farr Out guesthouse in Paternoster as part of our packaged tour and couldn't have asked for a more stunning experience. Set in the stunning backdrop of the sleepy little fishing village of Paternoster this guest house is seriously clean, super comfortable and beautifully set out. The garden is a pure adventure with cute little surprises hidden round every corner, you absolutely must experience the wood fired hot tub...thank you so much Marion and Deon it truly was an experience

We were pleasantly surprised and happy about the choice that we made with Farr Out Guesthouse for our 3 day stay in Paternoster. Even though slightly out of the main town, you could still see the sea and Paternoster from our balcony. What was also more appealing to us, was the peace, safety, quiet and beautiful nature surrounds. Marion and Deon are wonderful hosts and make you feel right at home. The rooms are very neat and clean with beautiful attention to detail. All the comforts that a person might need are catered for...even a washcloth for make-up. The continental breakfasts are delicious and served in a lovely homely setting. Marion went above and beyond to accommodate our children as well and her patience and kindness towards them were much appreciated. We would highly recommend this guesthouse for somebody looking for something a bit different (not looking on your neighbours stoep), but even more special in Paternoster.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Oyster room with a lovely balcony and view. Our kids stayed in Perlemoen with views...
