DESCRIPTION

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.

Gonubie Manor, the grand old lady of the Eastern Cape is ideally situated in the close proximity of the N2 highway and offers bed and breakfast, self-catering units as well as wedding and conference venues. We have a bar facility & pool to enjoy and relax in. Ideally situated close to the sandy white beaches, game reserves, casino, movies, shopping centers, restaurants, health spa, quad biking & bird watching, we the ideal stop over for the wary travelers or for those who want to break away in a country setting.

We look forward to welcoming you at Gonubie-Manor – Country life at its best!

RECEPTION HALL

OUR WEDDING RECEPTION VENUES
At Gonubie-Manor you have the choice of two venues. The Beta hall seats up to 160 guests comfortably and the Alpha venue seats up to 450 guests. Both these venues are air conditioned. Both venues have entrance lobbies. Both are decorated in neutral colours and have extensive draping possibilities. Essentially we have a blank canvass that we can use to create the ambience that you require.

YOUR CEREMONY
We have two outdoor areas which are very different and yet very special for your occasion. The one lies between the very large glass frontage to our 600 sqm large hall and a water feature on the right. Right in the middle is a beautiful lawn structure that accommodates up to 500 people. You may want to enjoy your ceremony in the open air or you may wish for us to erect a bedouin tent to give your guests some shelter. No request is too big or too small.

If you rather hanker for a more traditional setting then you could conduct your ceremony in front of the old manor house. The thatched, sandstone manor house has a distinct Herbert Baker design feel to it. The setting will transport your guests back in time. An exquisite setting for your ceremony.
