We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the hospitality the only thing that would be an asset is to have a tea and coffee station in the rooms. To be able to walk down to have a bite to eat was so good and not to get the car out.

This is the second time we have stayed at Chartfield, and it is definitely our go-to guest house in Kalk Bay. Both times we have stayed in the Jacob room, which has beautiful views over the Bay, and gets beautiful morning and afternoon sun. The guesthouse is always impeccably clean, and the people very pleasant. Each morning, they deliver your... More

We stayed in the top floor suite which had its own balcony with a beautiful view of Kalk Bay. The stairs to the suite were very steep and narrow, but thankfully the staff assisted us with our luggage. After that we had no problems with the stairs.

We are traveling a lot. So far in about 80 countries all over the world. And Chartfield Guesthouse is probably so far the best place we´ve stayed in. The house with the personal designed rooms, the view, the staff with it´s personality and the food. all was perfect. Thanks! Lisa & Nisse Berglund Varberg, Sweden

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here immensely. The room was very clean and the service was good. The hotel was surprisingly quiet as well. On top of everything they served an unbelievable breakfast every morning. Chartfield GH is an excellent value for your money.

Couldn't have asked for more accommodating staff and owner. Big thanks to security staff for providing the Bride with tea in early hours of the morning. Doubt if we would have had this kind of service in other venues. Thank You. Rooms very comfortable and excellent breakfast celebration with the most outstanding views. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Guest House.

What a little gem in Kalk Bay. We stayed in a standard room with stunning views of the bay. Room was spacious and clean. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast, good coffee and friendly waiters at Chartfield Guest House.
