The room was very big, very clean and has a very comfortable bed. We had a stunning sea view from our window in the morning. The breakfast was excellent and the staff very friendly. They gave us all kinds of tips to eat/to do around. It was a very pleasant stay!

The stairs to the loft were VERY dangerous - too steep, NO railing at the top 1/3rd of the stairs, no lights were on, very dangerous to go down. In the US a permit to open would not have been granted. The room was great - perfect view - nice & clean - breakfast was OK but not great. Texas... More

Dear John Thank you for leaving your review on our page. We do understand that the stairs to The Loft are very steep and not everyone can manage them and I am sure that if we had to build this house over again in South Africa at this present point in time we would also not be allowed to have...

I came for a break after a very busy time. I got just what I needed. Staff were especially lovely, the room comfortable and clean and the setting beautiful. I left relaxed and hoping to return sometime.

This was my second visit to Chartfield and every time I visit them the stay is better. The venue is an amazing mix of classical seaside architecture with wooden floors and wide open windows and local decorations to create a very rustic vibe but also a mix of sophistication with a gentle touch of pampering and a lot of attention...

Very affordable, excellently located guesthouse in Kalk Bay. All you need if you plan on only using it as a base to explore your surrounds. The rooms are quite basic, but very clean. Delicious breakfast is served with an incredible view! But note that breakfast is strictly only served until 10:30, after which the kitchen closes. For R120 per head... More

Hi Dominique Thank you very much for your review. We really appreciate it. Our breakfast is cooked by our housekeepers and unfortunately on some days if we are really busy we aren't able to extend our breakfast time. We are really sorry that exactly you had one of these days but we will try our very best to avoid that... More

Clean and tidy place. Really lovely and friendly staff, great service! Amazing breakfast menu, with healthy options and home made smoothies. Location right by beach and little lovely shops. Good restaurants and bars around too. Highly recommended. Fantastic value for money

It was only a 1 night stay, but I am very glad it was only 1 night. I would not recommend this place for a long stay as I don't think it was as great as the pictures on the web site lead you to believe.
