Since time immemorial, sailors have feared these waters

For more than a hundred years they lived out here, on the terms of the island and the sea. Now the door to the Lighthouse Master's home has been reopened. For seafarers from near and far, for nature lovers and pleasure seekers, for those who seek tranquillity or community. Enjoyment in a place where the senses are heightened.

After careful renovation, the old lighthouse master's residence has been transformed into an international and award-winning hotel, most recently the winner of the Stora Turismpriset 2022.

There are 9 well-designed rooms with beautiful views and sleeping space for 24 guests.

Our kitchen

Where senses are enhanced

The place where the wind is fresher, the water is saltier and the seafood is fresher, you can enjoy unique dining experiences. We prioritize using organic ingredients from our local area, especially from the ocean's pantry.

Naturally, our kitchen focuses on fish and shellfish caught in the Kattegat and Skagerrak. In addition, mussels, oysters and the beautiful, flavorful seaweed are used in many creative ways by our eminent chef.


For over 150 years, the lighthouse Pater Noster has guided sailors in Sweden's most dangerous waters. It was built in 1868 on the island of Hamneskär by the acclaimed engineer Gustav von Heidenstam, the same man who developed lighthouse systems around the Swedish coast. Today the lighthouse is a unique visitor attraction in the outer archipelago.

Most interested in the sea around the island is Royal Court supplier Poseidon Diving Systems, which develops state-of-the-art products for all categories of divers. Since 1958, the Gothenburg-based company has been inventing groundbreaking equipment and pushing both technology and design. Discover the wonders of the sea and the moments that surround them during your stay with us with equipment from Poseidon.

In 2020, designers at Stylt transformed the former residence of generations of lighthouse keepers into a unique and personalized boutique hotel. Located on an isolated and windswept island on the west coast of Sweden, the house was built in 1868 at the same time as the lighthouse Pater Noster. Stylt created the interior design concept using the island's dramatic history, its former inhabitants and the surrounding nature as sources of inspiration.

Over 70 years have passed since the Swedish founder of Tylö built his first sauna heater. With solid traditions in craftsmanship, long experience and pride in its heritage, Tylö offers unique sauna experiences - something that we at Pater Noster fell in love with and thought suited our genuine and unique archipelago environment particularly well.


With the help of our friends, we have created that special feeling that highlights and enhances the history of Pater Noster and the lighthouse families. All our friends are deeply in love with the place and interested in the history of life on the island. Their strong commitment helps us to deliver the highest quality and make your experience unique and memorable. and memorable.
