Welcome to 11 Worcester-on-Durban. We are a Guest House and self catering facility in the Westhill area, close to the centre of Grahamstown.

The original Victorian Gothic style dwelling "Mayfield" built in about 1860 is part of the Stately Homes and Old School Ties tour. Come and relax in this beautifully restored setting.

Located on Worcester St. directly opposite the Diocesan School for Girls, 400ms from St. Andrew`s College and St. Andrew`s Prep School and less than a kilometer from Rhodes University and the Peppergrove Shopping Centre we are close to the heart of Grahamstown yet surrounded by extensive gardens teeming with bird life.

The accommodation consists of three distinctly different units each with their own personalities. All have independent access and secure, off-street parking through our Durban St. entrance.
We can sleep eight adults comfortably. Up to ten if some of the group are children.
We offer a unique experience based on your requirements.

The Cottage
Once the kitchen for Mayfield, this is now a completely self-contained facility. Recently renovated it has a great atmosphere. The queen bedroom has French doors opening onto a patio and overlooking the swimming pool garden, as does the living room. The kitchen is equipped with 4-ring gas stove, electric oven, full size fridge/freezer and microwave.
There is a Weber grill on the patio.
The living room has a double sleeper couch suitable for an adult or 2 children. An additional bed can be put into the main bedroom if required.

Each room has twin beds (we can make one set up as a king if required.) There is a large en-suite shower room. The main room has a fridge and hospitality area.
This unit is ideal for a family group but it can be booked for single occupancy or in conjunction with the Cottage if you are a group travelling together.
