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.

I don't think this is acceptable for a guesthouse with such... More

This is one of the nicest guest houses we have ever stayed in, lovely, clean, comfortable and excellent hosts. A family run guest house. They serve a fantastic breakfast and lovely cuppachinos. Walking distance from all the little shops and restaurants on offer in Kalk Bay.

Great location and warm hospitality sincerely delivered. Our room was lovely with a wonderful sea view and the breakfast the next morning was superb. If in Kalk Bay again we would definitely stay here. Thanks to all the staff.

Rooms lovely, linen crisp and service delivered with a sincere hand. My suggestion is to accept the additional breakfast charges and wake up hungry. The great selection and variety of tasty morsels and beautiful treats will kick start your day regardless of whether you are a 'morning person ' or not.

My friend and I are both Canadians working in Joburg. We spent a long weekend after going to Cape Town for work and were amazed by our stay at Chartfield. Rooms were spotless, location was great, staff were friendly, and the breakfast was maybe one of the best breakfasts I've had. Period.
