A warm welcome and an experience in service and style  awaits you at Roseland House in the quiet residential suburb of Glenwood, high on Durban’s Berea. These two elegantly furnished homes offer designer  decorated accommodation and are ideally situated for  both the business executive and the traveller.

Roseland House has a total of 12 en suite rooms all differently decorated and furnished – some with lovely antiques and others with older style furnishings in keeping with the age of these two lovely colonial Durban homes. All our rooms are air conditioned for your comfort in the hot summer months in Durban.
