This hotel is amazing, within walking distance of the shops & the beach. Chose room with a balcony, sea-facing with awesome views of the surroundings & the beach. The staff were so sweet & accommodating, they organised our breakfast for earlier than usual which really meant alot to us. The supper was fabulous, try the Fritos, everything on that plate... More

We travelled from Cape Town to Paternoster on a day visit but loved the surroundings and Paternoster itself so we decided to stay over for the weekend. We were very lucky to find a sea view room available and was pleasantly surprised with this little hotel. The room has a large double bed as well as a single bed and... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but we went there for dinner and drinks. I found everything suitable and to our liking, but not mind blowing, u feel like Paternoster is a culinary gem and the restaurant is just not up to par to what the other places are offering

I booked 9 rooms over the weekend for my 50th birthday bash and everyone enjoyed it! From the first day that I did the booking, Angela, went out of her way to accomodate us. The service were excellent and it was the best seafood that I had in years! The panty bar and stoep ad so much more value to... More

We enjoyed the food the best. Everyone at our table (8 persons) had different requests because we do not eat everything. No creams, milk etc. and no bread for another one and the waitress was so good to make suggestions to sort out our allergy problems. The food ....especially the fish was fantastic. Fresh and nice presented. Drinks served nice... More

We stayed at Paternoster hotel early May 2014. The management of the hotel were very matter of fact and did the absolute basics when we checked in .We then read the hotel guide and have never seen a hotel with more rules and regulations - felt we were back in boarding school. For example - no tv remote control in... More

My husband and i stayed here for 2 nights during our honeymoon road trip. Our room was really lovely, newly decorated and we had a balcony that over looked the sea. The food in the restaurant was nice but maybe need more staff as there are a lot of tables(the staff were also lovely). The Panty Bar was an eye... More

We visited the restaurant for a meal of fishcakes with rice. It tasted strange, and was quite unpleasant. The burger was also plain and unmemorable. To top it off, we had the worst service from a waitor who would rather point at the menu than speak, appears without a word, no greeting or smile, forgets to bring the round of... More

Hotel improved on decor, but not on service. Rooms are large and comfortable. Large and cosy. Beware on main road, therefore you get pestered by children and read the warning about safety. Also be beware, breakfast is not included - except of one item. Only Hotel in South Africa, where you have to pay for breakfast extras.

Sometimes it is simply great if things don't change too much over time. Mentioned the hotel elsewhere but thought worth sharing this note for visitors (especially international ones!). In the politically turbulent 1980s, as a student, first visited Paternoster, pretty much dead-poor. Owner Johan Carossini gave us accommodation in a caravan parked next to the hotel, it cost practically nothing.... More
