Sommersby Bed & Breakfast

From R550 PPS



Sommersby is a charming Edwardian house, lovingly converted into a bed & breakfast in 1995. Many of the original features remain: wooden floors, high ceilings and fireplace, which help create a 'home from home' atmosphere.

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.

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.

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 if details are provided at the time of booking. An additional fee will be charged for this service. We are approximately 30 minutes from the airport. Laundry services are 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 provided. Each guest is given a remote with full access to the bed and breakfast and can come and go as they please.

Durban Country Club, Durban Royal Golf Club, Beachwood Golf Club and Windsor Golf Club are all within a couple of minutes drive. We are within 2km of Moses Mahbida Soccer Stadium, Kingsmead Cricket Ground and Kings Park Rugby Ground. Durban's main beaches are less than 2km away, as is Suncoast Casino and Greyville Racecourse.

Guest Comments

Minimal parking available. Friendly service.

My stay was pleasing except for the breakfast which was not appetising. Unfortunately the owner only showed up once in the 2 days and did not enquire about our stay and whether he could assist in any way. It was disappointing.

We enjoyed our stay. Everything was mall , public transport services, banking facilities, etc.

My stay was great I enjoyed being the, all because of the friendly stuff, they were good and kind to us. Thank you

A tired place in need of a lot of TLC. Towels definitely need replacing. Location is very convenient but the alarm next door went off at 5-minute intervals for most of the evening. Breakfast was fine.

Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
