This was my 6th or 7th stay at Chartfield. As always we had a great stay and the breakfast is still a highlight. We went as a couple but have done it as a family too. Great rooms, food and view. We'll be back!

Had a wonderful experience here! The staff were exceptionally hospitable and there were so many little touches that made our stay special. Breakfast in particular is AMAZING - beginning with cappuccinos brought straight to our room by the lovely intern, Rain, and finishing overlooking the bay with a delicious menu to choose from. Will definitely be taking my parents here... More

this place was fantastic. We arrived late (1130p) without reservations and the gentlemen on the street took us to a lovely room. Comfy bed, great view and spectacular breakfast. Can't wait to go back.

I spent one night recently on a business trip and was very happy. Excellent staff, extremely friendly and attentive. Very good coffee available on demand and a really exceptional and carefully prepared and presented breakfast in the breakfast room with a wonderful view of the ocean and harbour. Minor criticism which I guess would have been fixed had I asked,... More

I really loved the place, very charming and friendly! Amazing breakfast! We stayed at the loft, it's beautiful, the only problem was the noise of the water pump (I think) at night. And also the paid internet, that not always worked.

My 2 night stay at Chartfield was even more impressive and memorable than I had hoped for. The interior is striking and impressive and the fireplace made for a homely welcome. Furthermore, the staff is friendly and assists with even the smallest detail. The breakfast was made with care and presented in a gourmet manner. My most impressive and unforgettable... More

Our family had not pre booked so we were pleased to get the top wing of this delightful guest house. Comfy beds, great views, warm hospitable ambiance, the most delicious breakfast menu - the kids loved the ham and cheese crepes...A must visit - the staff are also great! Loved the fleeting visit, will be back for sure!

A return visit to Chartfield House didn't disappoint. We stayed in the 'Star of the Sea' room which has a separate circular lounge room with a fantastic view over the pool and the harbour. The perfect sunny spot to enjoy early morning coffee served in your room and watch the whales in the bay. The small touches & wonderful staff... More
