Meet our Paternoster Accommodation Team!
As a family-owned hospitality business, we value the way in which our team members bring profession service with a personal touch. Whether you stay in our guest house or self-catering holiday homes, our attentive brand of hospitality aims to make this feel like home.
Our Housekeepers Lungi, Zanele & Xolelwa all have their roots in the Eastern Cape but have settled happily in Paternoster. These loyal ladies work tirelessly to ensure that our rooms are prepared for your visit and, in the case of the Manor, serviced every day. They ensure that our public spaces are clean and attractive, take care of the laundry and help to keep our kitchen and dining area running smoothly!
Our Guest House Manager, Rick, embodies the spirit of the Manor Pledge: to give our guests the best possible stay, and memories they will never forget!
Also hailing from the Eastern Cape, Rick joined the Manor team in June 2017. He has many years of experience in lodge and guest house management. Rick loves to welcome people and make them feel special; his delicious breakfasts will provide you with sustenance to see you though your daily activities, and he will attend to any requests that will make your stay more comfortable! Overseeing operations including bookings, housekeeping, admin and events are all part of a days work for this hard-working team member.
Business owner Ross, his son Matt and nephew Glen work closely with the other team members to bring a strong family feel to our hospitality offerings.
With a diploma in Hospitality Management, Matt brings his professional training to the business, as well as experience in the management of hotels and game lodges in Zululand and Botswana.
Matt provides guidance and support to the team, covering all aspects of operations. Matt also does duties including breakfast service, bookings, guest relations, staff management and marketing.
A trained volunteer firefighter, Matt lives our spirit of community outreach and civic responsibility
With a farming heritage, a grounding in nature conservation and prior experience in hospitality, Glen can turn his hand to almost anything.
Whether serving sumptuous breakfasts, taking bookings, checking guests in and out, or addressing IT and maintenance issues … he helps us to fill any gaps in our capacity.
Apart from the routine operational duties that Glen shares with Matt and Rick, he also has responsibility for property maintenance.
Hailing from the farming area of Underberg, KwaZulu-Natal, Ross McLean CA (SA) served in executive leadership roles during a 4-decade corporate career spanning assignments in South Africa, the UK and the UAE (Dubai).
In February 2017 he retired from the role as President (Africa) for Dow, a $60Billion US-based multinational operating in over 160 countries.
Ross entered his “second curve” in February 2017, acquiring Paternoster Manor and subsequently Limestone House and Stay @ Emily.
It’s all about CHOICE …
If you make Paternoster one of your chosen travel destinations, we would like to help you select accommodation that will delight you!
