This hotel is the perfect collaboration between old and new, classic and modern, manorial and contemporary.
Although its founding name “Schoonder Sigt” from the 17th century, has long since changed, the “beautiful view” after which it was named, is still just as magnificent.
This heritage manor was owned by the chap who named the Orange River, gave Pletternberg Bay its title and who had Gordon’s Bay named after him. General Robert J. Gordon. Even the surrounding streets got their names from his era, before it was owned by the son of a king, fulfilled its role as a manor house, an apartment block and even a nursing home. An imbued and interesting history to say the least.
In 2010 it was restored to its former glory, by the current owners, Justin and Natalia Pearson, who stripped it of the Spanish touches regrettably added in 1973, to make this National Monument building the stunner it is today.
