From a superb setting, to excellent accommodation, clean and stylish while providing everything you might need. ( Our room was heated to be perfect room temperature on arrival!) The best breakfast and efficient and friendly staff as well as the fact that the proud owner is on site, made this a most enjoyable stay. Have recommended it to all our... More

Very much enjoyed our stay. Unique building with a mix of old and new design strategically located in the quaint village of Kalk Bay. Room and common areas were inviting and comfortable. Stay was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and convenient. In-room coffee and tea service each morning was an unexpected luxury. Wish wifi was included in price of... More

We stayed in one of the rooms with a view over the Kalk Bay harbour as well as the mountains and beautiful sunrise on the other side. Loved waking up there! I just don't like a shower curtain in a guest house, but everything else was amazing, the service, location, the breakfast, all excellent!

Excellent lodge in the middle of Oranjezicht, near by the Water front. Good break fast, quite location in safe area, central to all sights and friendly staff. Well recommended to go there for a city break.

Hi Thank you for your kind words but unfortunately this is not us, I think you must be confusing us with another Guesthouse as we are in Kalk Bay about 40 minutes from town. Kind regards Ursina for Shireen and Florian More

The location is great, just a short walk down steep steps to the main street, unless of course you are unfit, very old and frail, or in a wheelchair. Seriously I think if you are handicapped, it would be a struggle, as would the parking as it is off site and in the street. Its a bit of a gamble... More

Five years ago, we visited and enjoyed it so much that we returned - our second visit was as good as the first and, although the owners were overseas, the staff made us feel very much at home. I was delighted with my room, which included a sitting room overlooking Kalk Bay Harbour and my daughter was very impressed with... More

I traveled alone to Kalk Bay. Chartfield staff helped me figure out alternate transportation when mine fell through, and arranged a tour of the Cape Peninsula with a local. They helped with a taxis for an early morning departure as well. The rooms are lovely, the building itself matches the pictures online, and they even provided a hot water bottle... More

Thank you for the lovely room with an ocean view. The guest house was clean and artfully decorated. Special attention was paid and we were provided with bath toys for our baby. My brother was given a special birthday breakfast. The only thing I think you can improve on was to provide a double duvet for the double bed as... More

Everything at Chartfield Guesthouse was wonderful, the breakfasts were delicious, the views dreamy. Except our room was incredibly noisy. We were directly below the loft and could hear them talking, walking, showering, flushing the toilet etc. We were also woken on Saturday night by people talking in the reception. I don't think this is acceptable for a guesthouse with such... More

Hi Nicola Thank you very much for your honesty and your feedback. We know about the noise problem and try our best to keep the noise as much down as possible. As Chartfield is a very old building we are not able to avoid completely the noise transfer in the house. However we will make sure that you will stay... More
