We did not spent much time here, only stayed 2 nights. The service was excellent. Food very delicious and rooms all that we asked for. March is a very good time to visit Paternoster, not so busy with holiday-rush.

Paternoster is a great little West Coast town and a must visit if you're in the area. The Paternoster Hotel has been going for years and the food there is not bad at all. The ambience of the "Panty Bar" is great and I'm sure many a story can be told from there, but the rooms are a bit old...

The hotel is situated on the main road in town and it is very busy and noisy during the day. The rooms are old and not well kept, although they are reasonably clean. The matrass is old and knotted and each guest receives only one cheapish pillow. There was only one hanger in the wooden closet and upon our request...

Spent 4 nights at the hotel. Found the staff to be very abrupt and argumentative. Separating the Resturant from the accommodation. Resturant, the waitresses, need some hospitality soft skill's training. However the kitchen certainly put out some great meals. As for the accommodation, rooms on arrival were very poorly kitted out. No hangers on arrival. Upon asking the manageress for...

I had a great time at Paternoster hotel. The rooms are clean. The location is perfect and the staff is friendly! They also have the best bar and a restaurant that serve great food - it was packed every day!

The hotel provides all the basics (not a boutique or 5 star hotel) for accommodation. Situated in the middle of the town with very close access to restaurants, shops and the main beach. The breakfast in the mornings were good.

Beautiful hotel. Lovely old furniture. Good food and excellent service. Friendly staff; nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms all look different with beautiful decor. The sea view rooms are a real treat. Be prepared - you hear the playful bantering of the Coloureds from "miles" away. But they are very friendly and no threat at all. ☺

What a terrible experience and furthermore no response after we complained! The room was dark, the towels stained and the door to the bathroom did not close. The walls were peeling as well. What was displayed on your website almost seems like a completely different place. Upon raising this with, not one, but 3 of the managers, nothing was done....

Paternoster hotel, we've given you ample opportunity to make the scenario right but you don't respond, so it's only fair we share our experience so people can adjust their expectations accordingly. 1. The rooms look absolutely nothing like the pictures on the website. The manager told us the pictures are actually from the self catering cottages not the hotel and...
