The old Savoy Hotel was built in the 1850’s shortly after the White House and constructed of brick and corrugated iron. The Savoy was one of the very first large building built in Jeffrey’s Bay. It was run by Mrs McGuire and at first was known as the Jeffrey’s Bay Hotel. In 1937 it was renamed The Savoy and finally demolished in 1968 to make way for the new hotel we know today.
