About us…

Somerset Guest House is situated in Glenwood, one of Durban's oldest suburbs.

Only 3km from the city centre, 5km from the beach, 39km from the airport, 5min walking distance from Davenport shopping centre and 7 restaurants, we are ideally located for access to all a guest could need.

Built in 1903, Somerset Guest House is over a hundred years old and still features original Oregon pine floors and high ceilings. This classic colonial house is full of character and charm, matched by the warmth and hospitality of its owners.

On the ground level guests may utilize and enjoy a TV lounge, dining area, pool, lapa, garden and safe parking for 6 vehicles. An extensive brochure display also affords guests ample info on tourist attractions and game reserves in KwaZulu Natal.
