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 wedding 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.

Venue Facilities

Our Function Hall ….. Comfortably seats up to 150 guests with a spacious dance floor

The Restaurant ….. Seats up to 60 guests but no dance floor is permitted

Outside ….. Unfortunately we do no catering outside on the lawn/in the garden – only the ceremony and welcoming

Included in the price for the Venue:
Long tables and chairs
Cutlery, crockery and glasses

All the options are within walking distance from Paternoster Hotel.

A beautiful beach ceremony is ideal and very romantic… weather permitting.

At the Hotel you can have your ceremony on a large lawn in the garden under a huge old RUBBER tree that can easily be transformed into a lovely setting.
