We held our annual strategy conference at Chartfield, and it was fantastic. They were incredibly attentive, the conference room is fully equipped and incredibly relaxing, the food was amazing (we had breakfast, which was a la carte, and a set lunch menu), and the coffee was divine. The setting is spectacular!

This was our first stop in Africa. A great choice to relax, unwind, and recover from jet lag. Our arrival was late, but everything from our airport transfer to our check in went smoothly. I enjoyed the front porch of my cottage room, festooned with bougainvillea. The breakfast and the setting was just lovely and the coffee was absolutely fantastic!... More

Chartfield Gusethouse is situated in Kalk Bay, a very nice town with great relaxing atmosphere. You can walk around safely, even in the evenings. The guesthouse is in walking distance of coffee bars, restaurants, tidal swimming pool, etc. Breakfast on the hotel terrace is sublime. But most important to mention is the excellent service of the staff. Always ready to... More

Our third stay here was as delightful as ever. Amazing value for money, great service, great breakfast out on the terrace overlooking the pool and the harbour. And everywhere a considered and often humorous aesthetic that reveals a highly developed design sensibility. A gorgeous place to stay with very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent.

As part of our 60th birthday trip to SA we spent our first 2 nights at this amazing place - it was our 2nd visit & it was just as good as ever. The location, the staff, the food were all absolutely spot on. Thank you so much!

My wife and I recently spent a weekend at Chartfield House and were very happy with our stay. The staff were efficient and friendly. We particularly enjoyed the menu driven breakfast and views of the sea and mountain. Although parking was on the street, our car was kept safe by security guards.
