This was probably the best B&B we've stayed in, anywhere in the world. The rooms were magnificent, breakfasts exceptional by any standards and Francois was an amazing, thoughtful and kind host. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we wanted for nothing. Unconditional recommendation.

The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to make our visit an extreme experience. Breakfast out of this world! The rooms are spacious and luxurious with that "warm and welcome" ambiance. We are definitely going back at the first opportunity.

It's hard to find secret places in the world. This is another one. Ross and Francois setting the benchmark for hospitality at the West Coast, if you have the chance to visit Paternoster, I ask you to visit them. It's a wonderful place with a passion of hospitality and it's not a feeling like home, for me it was not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set against the sweeping seascapes of the West Coast, Paternoster Manor nestles in a small bay guarded by the Columbine Lighthouse. This is a haven for the weary traveller and a base for the intrepid explorer. Sumptuously furnished rooms lure you into a world of indulgence, and through warm hospitality and personal attention your hosts Francois and Ross aim to make this a stay you will never forget. Whether you choose to stay in one of our two superior rooms, our luxurious family suite, or to bask in the warmth of our luxury double room, you are assured of a refuge where opulent comfort is blended with care that is attentive yet unobtrusive. Breakfasts are part of the sensory experience on offer at this 4-star guest house; an extensive continental buffet is enriched by a hot breakfast, overseen with pride by our resident chef Francois. You will remember breakfast as a delightful start to the next day of your adventure in Paternoster! ... more   less
