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

Small establishment yet unique and cozy, the interior style is very minimal yet contemporary and eligent, warm reception and welcoming. you will feel you walking in your own house yet away from home. The breakfast is too die for,after eating you can just want to go back to beauty sleep and feel the heavenly treatment and delicious food.

The chartfield guest house is a very nice place to stay. The only draw back is that is can be difficult to find parking as it is not provided however this seemed to be a trend throughout Cape Town. Thanx for the pleasant stay.

We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra few days. Although it was cold weather in Cape Town we were kept warm during our stay at Chartfield by the lovely fire and the toasty hot water bottles provided by the staff each night. The breakfasts were delicious with a perfect view from the dining room

It was my second time at this wonderful guesthouse. I made a point of staying here on this trip. There was a drawback when I arrived. They have expended the guesthouse and now have rooms across the road. Its a house that has been changed into several rooms. Well, its a walkway rather then a traffic road, however these rooms...
