Gonubie Manor, built in the 1800’s and steeped in history, was built by a settler’s family, the Mackenzie’s. Originally built as a hotel to accommodate guests far and wide - they would come from inland to the harbour to buy goods such as tea, sugar and spices. Those days it took 6 hours from the harbour to the manor to spend the night and rest. We're the grand old lady of the Eastern Cape, ideally situated in close proximity of the N2 highway and we offer bed and breakfast accommodation, self-catering units as well as wedding and conference venues.
We have a bar facility and pool to enjoy and relax in. Ideally situated close to the sandy white beaches, game reserves, casino, movies, shopping centres, restaurants, health spa, quad biking and bird watching. We are the ideal stop-over for the weary travellers or for those who want to break away in a country setting. All our units have private entrances and are situated in our extensive grounds which border the Gonubie River just outside East London. All of these units are semi self-catering. All units include a shower and toilet, DSTV, a microwave, fridge/freezer, cutlery and crockery, linen and bathtowels (please bring own swimming towels). Meals are not included, but are available on request.
We understand that every wedding should be different and we go out of our way to make sure that your wedding day is extra special. We provide a beautiful country feel, in an immaculately sculptured garden and we've become East London’s premier wedding venue.
