About Erlesmere Lodge
Erlesmere Lodge offers self-catering as well as bed and breakfast accommodation. Conveniently located just off Florida Road which is home to a number of top restaurants and bistros, Erlesmere will suit business travellers as well as the tourist or holiday traveller.
Erlesmere is an elegant and spacious Edwardian double storey home with an additional, more modern double storey, the Palm Court, on the same property. Balconies and a palm shaded courtyard ensure guests get to make the most of the balmy Durban weather.
The main building has been renovated and boasts beautiful wooden floors and spacious rooms sporting large sash windows letting in lots of light! We have taken pride in the decor and every attention is paid to even the smallest detail to ensure our guests come back again and again.
