About Fiddlers Rest

 Sleeps 14
Check-in: 1:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM

Fiddlers Rest Bed and Breakfast is set in a grand mansion with lush tropical gardens that hosts abundant bird life. We are situated in upper Morningside, Durban’s most prestigious address and are centrally located.

We offer luxury accommodation in three suites, each with their own entrance. All the linen is provided and each room is equipped with a TV, a fridge and air-conditioning. A sumptuous breakfast is served in the elegant dining room. Guests are invited to use the swimming pool and enjoy the wonderful Durban sunshine. The outside patios have been assigned as designated smoking areas.

Fiddlers Rest is a 1950s mansion built by Hilton Rich who was the owner of Beechway Motors. It was then bought by Raoul Goldman who was Mayor of Durban at that time. The present owners, popular Irish musician Tony and his wife Lilian, took over in 1986. The property overlooks Durban’s famous Mitchell Park and is adjacent to “Kings House” which is the President's home when he is here.

Two great nights spent here. The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean and breakfast was perfect. Lovely central place to stay in gorgeous setting. I have no hesitation in recommending staying here

We had an awesome stay and really appreciated the hospitality. Will definitely be coming back soon! Thank you!Perhaps a thorough briefing on security and locking at first arrival will assist avoid any confusion and security exposure in event that one is out and back at the venue very late.Otherwise we had a splendid stay!
