We recently spent 2 nights at Chartfield house. The property is beautifully located within walking distance of talk Bay main road. A short flight of steps and your have many restaurants and shops to look at. The train station is close by. The staff are so friendly and helpful and can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms... More

I would highly recommend Chartfield Guest House. The setting is beautiful, the service excellent and the accommodation very comfortable. Problem is my friends and I wanted to stay longer! So we are definitely going back!

We stayed at this hotel for six nights in February, we found our allocated room a little claustrophobic but we reported this to reception in the morning and luckily they had another room which they moved us to without any problem. Breakfast was exceptional (once you worked out that you do not order everything at once!). We booked two trips... More

A great guest house. Comfortable beds, wonderful breakfasts, very friendly staff, great service. We had three rooms in six days with showers, no baths. Furniture could be a little better in some of the rooms, more old than antique or vintage, some modern. They should include wi-fi instead of charging for it, provide tea and coffee making facilities and rooms... More

Stayed at Chartfield for six nights after reading Trip Advisor Reports. Had a light airy room on the top floor with good bathroom facilities and a lovely view of the harbour. The guest-house is clean and comfortable with helpful, friendly staff and close to the seafront and shops, bars and restaurants. However, there are a few points that need to... More

My husband stayed at the Chartfield Guest House in October 2014 during our visit in the Cape Town area. We opted for a much more relaxing environment during our visit and enjoyed how quaint Kalk Bay is. With the property located on a hill, we had epic views of Kalk Bay and we were within walking distance of the pier... More

My wife and I stayed here after a long drive before we flew home from Cape Town. This is an enigmatic B+B in a backstreet of Kalk Bay. Due to its height above the town, there are great views from the terraces. The room was large with an in-room safe, good storage space and a big, comfy bed. There are... More

Our stay started off on a good note with a friendly welcome. The room is pleasant and had a great view. Then came the night and the consistent creaking floors; a restless guest in the room above us was pacing around until after midnight. An absolute nightmare as you hear every footstep through the wooden creaking floors. I spoke to... More

Chartfield was all I had hoped for from a getaway with my husband. The room was beautiful and character-filled and had a gorgeous view over the harbor and the sea. It felt like a real treat. The breakfast was a culinary feast and beautifully presented and served. The guesthouse is well located for wandering through Kalk Bay and nearby restaurants... More
