The well known Paternoster Hotel is situated on the West Coast of South Africa in the picturesque fishing village of Paternoster, only 145km north of Cape Town. The Paternoster Hotel is a 2 minute walk from the Main Beach and offers 10 en suite rooms, a fully equipped Self Catering House, a Pub (The Panty Bar) and a Restaurant famous for its seafood.
Paternoster Hotel Weddings
The original building was built in 1863 by the community with limestone from the area. In those days it served as a ‘mall’ with a clothing store, jail/holding cell, entertainment (snooker tables). The present dining room was used for dances and church services and the function hall was an open area used by the local farmers to store their corn.
If you want to celebrate your most beautiful day in a relaxed, traditional, rustic, family atmosphere, Paternoster Hotel is your ideal Venue.
Here you can turn your Wedding from a one day occasion into a week end celebration with family and friends. We have indoor and outdoor BBQ/braai facilities as well as an A La Carte restaurant for your pre Wedding party.
