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.

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

My husband and I rented the 3 bedroom cottage in June for a 6 night stay with our school age children. Each room has a king size bed which is great. We didn't realize that each bedroom can be rented separately and has separate entrance and keys into the communal area of the cottage - it worked out fine, but... More
