The subject property lies in Eshowe, a small town set on a hill in the heart of the Zulu Kingdom on the east coast of South Africa. The George Hotel has a rich history, having been built on the original residency of the British Commissioner, Sir Charles Saunders. The Land was acquired in 1896 and the present hotel was built in 1906 adjacent to the Great 300-hectare Dlinza Forest. During the mining boom of the 1920s the hotel operated as a Stock Exchange. The rich historical heritage of the hotel extends through the Bambata Rebellion, the formation of the Union of South Africa, The Apartheid era and now forms part of the new South Africa.
