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.

The Erlesmere self-catering units:
The ground floor unit in Erlesmere offers two spacious bedrooms (one double and one twin), two bathrooms (main en suite), large lounge / dining room and fully equipped modern kitchen. A wrap around balcony offers the opportunity to relax outdoors and enjoy the balmy Durban weather. There is DStv (satellite) in the lounge and in the main bedroom. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned. WiFi internet is accessible from all rooms at no extra charge.

The upper floor unit is available as a three bedroom family unit or as individual rooms (off-season only). The unit offers one air-conditioned double room (queen bed) with en suite shower, toilet and basin and two twin / king rooms sharing a bathroom. There is a spacious communal lounge / dining room and large fully equipped kitchen. A wrap around balcony offers you the opportunity to relax outside.

Flat screen TV's with DSTV in the lounge and all three bedrooms.

The Palm Court individual rooms:
The Palm Court offers two double en suite rooms (Palm Court 1 and 2). These rooms are suitable for couples or business people who do not require a full unit. The en suite bathrooms consist of a shower, toilet and basin. Both rooms open onto a balcony which overlooks the palmed courtyard.

Both rooms are equipped for guests to make themselves a complimentary cup of tea or coffee. A Continental breakfast can be provided at an additional cost on request and by prior arrangement.

The courtyard has an outdoor table and benches where guests can enjoy the balmy Durban weather.

There is a kitchenette for communal use to warm up take-aways etc but these rooms are not self-catering unless both rooms are booked as a unit.
