An excellent place in all respects. We experienced to be greeted with genuine friendliness and charm. A place with soul and history in the walls. Situated in the landscape as if it was taken from a painting. A delight to move in nature, and in the village, with its excellent dining options.

This was one of the loveliest experiences! The staff was so humble yet super professional, helpful and friendly! The view from the property is stunning. The 3 course breakfast on the deck was fabulous. This is a no brainer choice!

What a fantastic trip. I have stayed in 5 star hotels that cost 6 times as much and were not as pleasant as the Oystercatcher Lodge. Hosts were incredible, the views, the location, the cleanliness it all completely exceeded my expectations.

We had such a fabulous time with friends at this stunning guest house. The food, hospitality of the staff and venue was absolutely 5 star. This place is perfect for anyone who needs a proper break in true luxury and style. Perfect for couples, families, business conferences.

Seldom have we spent time at such a perfect location! Apart from the ocean being visible from every window, the character of the interior is exquisite. As we were a group of friend we had the opportunity to see and appreciate all the rooms which are all beautifully furnished and built with doors and windows from a bygone era full...

A peaceful and enjoyable break with a spectacular view, fantastic service and 50 whales as a bonus. Good restaurant recommendations and bookings too. The staff were all incredible. A better map from the airport would have been very useful.

Gorgeous location. Booking and welcoming staff above average. Bed extremely uncomfortable. Pillows thin and lumpy. TV screen tiny. Breakfast minimal choice but classy service. Decor dated. Towels first class.
