Postal Address

26 Somerset Avenue


This gracious colonial house, built in 1903, is situated in a quiet suburban avenue in Glenwood. The high ceilings, natural Oregon pine floors and individualized furnishings characterise the quiet understated charm of Somerset Guest House. The 4 guest rooms are on the upper floor, and feature air conditioners, ceiling fans, tea and coffee facilities and extra-long beds. Guests enjoy exclusive use of the DSTV lounge and dining area on the ground floor. A full cooked breakfast or a selection of speciality omelettes is offered. There is a private entrance, a swimming pool and safe off-street parking. We are ideally located for hospitals, UKZN, ICC, shopping and the beach.
