Somerset Guest House
Somerset Guest House - This Colonial house was built in 1903. The high ceilings and natural Oregon pine floors add to a warm and hospitable atmosphere.

Special care has been taken with art, decor and paintings to fit in with the era in which the house was built.

From the private entrance, we offer a television room on the ground floor exclusively for guests, a large dining area and a large display with tourism brochures of places to be visited in Durban.

We have a separate fully equipped self-catering kitchen available on the ground floor with ironing facilities.
