Welcome to MyThai Guesthouse & Cookschool


Mythai Guesthouse & Cookschool is certainly a Bed & Breakfast with a difference. The Guesthouse building in itself has a classic mix of various architectural styles and with its beautiful garden setting one gets a ‘typical tropical Thai feeling' as you enter the premises. One of the many great attributes to this place is its location, situated in upper Morningside within a stone's throw away from the area's beautiful Mitchell and Jameson parks. The guesthouse boasts a Florida road entrance with secure parking allowing guests walking access to all the countless restaurants and pubs that this famous road has to offer. Added to this, Mythai is very close to all major amenities or attractions Durban has to offer. All rooms are extremely comfortable and have a private feel…they are all en-suite, with DSTV, air-conditioning and all rates include a full English breakfast.
