Sommersby is a charming Edwardian house, lovingly converted into a bed & breakfast in 1995. Many of the original features remain including wooden floors, high ceilings and fireplace, which help create a `home from home` atmosphere.
We have 6 ensuite and a self-catering 3-bedroom unit. Fresh towels are provided on a daily basis. There is a communal lounge with television and hi-fi.
A small, but well stocked `honesty` bar is available 24hrs a day for your convenience
Breakfast is included in the price and can be a continental, health or full English - whichever you prefer. Breakfast can be served either in the breakfast room or on the patio if you wish and the weather permits.
Airport transfers can be arranged (at a fee) if details are provided at the time of booking. We are approximately 20 minutes from the airport.
Patio Laundry service is available and can usually be done on the same day if given enough notice. Again, an additional charge would apply for this service. Alternatively, a launderette is located in the shopping centre opposite.
The bed and breakfast is fully walled and has electric fencing along the boundary. Secure off street parking is available.
Each guest is given a remote with full access to the bed and breakfast and can come and go as they please.
We are ideally situated in the Morningside area, directly opposite the Windermere shopping centre which has an internet café, shops such as Checkers, Everfresh, Clicks and also ABSA, Standard Bank and Nedbank branches. There is also a foreign exchange agent.
The Musgrave shopping centre and Durban CBD are only 5 minutes away. Durban Country Club, Royal Durban golf course and Kingsmead Cricket Ground can also be reached in a few minutes by car.
We are 2km from the main beaches, Sun Coast Casino and walking distance to Greyville Racecourse, Moses Mahbida soccer stadium, Kings Park rugby stadium.
Sommersby is `sandwiched` between Florida and Windermere Roads, which provide a whole host of popular bars, restaurants and shops, literally only a short walk away.
Sommersby Bed & Breakfast is a relaxed place to stay with the action you want on your doorstep.
