My recent stay at the Inn at Castle Hill was very enjoyable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful at all times. Wifi connection was strong and reliable. Location was superb - close enough to Main Road but far enough to be away from any noise. Perfect views from the HUGE balcony out across False Bay. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at Castle Hill for 5 days in Feb. We could not have asked for better. The room and bathroom were clean and well maintained. Crisp white linen on a king size bed assured a good night's rest. It's a short walk to lovely coffee shops, restaurants and interesting little shops. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It... More

A charming guest house, up the hill from the Main Road, with a variety of sleeping arrangements. We had a remarkable experience here. Upon arriving, we discovered that our four night reservation had inadvertently been cancelled, but we were assured that they could accommodate us (this was Sunday afternoon). We were immediately upgraded for the night to a suite at... More

Charming Host Madeleine was very helpful. We liked the character of the colonial style house with its balconies and the view and enjoyed a very Good breakfast at the neighbouring guesthouse. Will come again.

I booked at the last minute and all I could get in Kalk Bay was the basement room at The Inn at Castle Hill. At R800 for two people it seemed very reasonable. On checking out I was told it was a new room having previously been the room of the owner. It has recently been added to their guest... More

Ideal guest house for Kalk Bay sea view, mountain hiking, restaurants etc. Elegant comfortable clean and friendly; we'll be back. Madeline was excellent we all enjoyed her morning coffee and afternoon iced tea.

Strongly recommend Castle Hill for singles and couples: elegant, simple with a great garden courtyard, balcony with gorgeous sea views and easy proximity to all of the places and things you'd like to walk to in the area. Warm and unobtrusive staff who were always keen to help and make a good expresso.

Absolutely superb location, in a beautifully picturesque town. Madeleine welcomed us, pampering us with refreshments on arrival and astute local advice whenever requested. This may be the most beautiful place we've stayed in a long time and our price was exceptional value. Would've loved to stay more than one night however they were booked out.

We have now stayed three weekends at The Inn at Castle Hill and each one has been memorable. Lovingly decorated, safe environment,spacious rooms, friendly staff, beautiful views, short walk to all the funky shops and restaurants in Kalk Bay. We stay in Newlands, which is only 25 minutes away be car, but our weekends at the Inn feel like we... More
