SSet against the panoramic seascapes of the West Coast, Paternoster Manor nestles in Bek Bay, a picturesque cove within the stretch of coastline between Great Paternoster Point and Cape Columbine. It’s an exciting place for travellers. For over 80 years, countless mariners have been guided safely around the rocky outcrops of this coastline by the steadfast, sweeping lamps of the Columbine Lighthouse, the last manned tower built on the South African coast. Whether you choose to stay in one of our stately superior rooms, relax in our luxurious family suite, or bask in the warmth of our double room, you are assured of a refuge where opulent comfort is blended with care that is attentive yet unobtrusive. Our bedrooms are stylishly decorated and equipped with modern en-suite bathrooms, hairdryers, ample storage space, and television sets with a good choice of DSTV programs. For your refreshment, each room has a tea/coffee station with a fridge. Safes are provided for your valuables. Our West Coast climate brings a range of weather conditions; to moderate the temperature variations, our rooms are now air conditioned. In winter, electric blankets are available for added comfort. As you step over the threshold into Paternoster Manor, you might enjoy the sense of being wrapped in splendid seclusion. However, you will remain connected with your world: complimentary wi-fi and boosted cell phone signal will help you to maintain communications with family and friends - or colleagues and associates - in distant places. Breakfasts are part of the sensory experience on offer at this 4-star guest house; an extensive continental buffet is accompanied by a hot breakfast. This meal is served in the newly refurbished Manor Dining area. Weather permitting, seating can be "al fresco" - in the courtyard area. We want our guests to remember breakfast as a delightful start to their day in Paternoster! Since acquiring the property in February 2017, we have made some changes to transform the Manor! While staying true to the lavish style of the guest house, we have re-purposed the artwork, furnishings and décor to further emphasize its opulence and stateliness. Damaged floors have been replaced with warm wood finishes in the public areas and plush carpeting in the bedrooms. Rooms now have air conditioners and modern flat screen TVs; and beds and linen have been renewed to maintain a high standard of comfort. The pièce de résistance in our upgrade program is surely the new heart of the home: the gorgeous dining area with corner fireplace and kitchen-style serving units. Stacking glass doors open onto the adjacent quadrangle planted with herbs and creepers redolent of a French courtyard garden, wrapping around the new sundeck and hydrotherapy spa (hot tub). For the energetic we have a new fitness room, accessible from the sundeck. True to the style of the Manor, you can exercise under a chandelier while looking across the deck to the ocean! And a few words about our rooms... The Manor Executive Suite: As you step into the Manor Executive Suite, you will be impressed by the generous dimensions of this lavishly furnished room.
