My daughter Andreyya and I stayed at castle hill for a week and it was the most beautiful place we've experienced. The staff was warm , caring and very hospitable. We made magical memories there , which will remain in our hearts forever. Morgana Krishnan. Durban

Having stayed in this hotel last year, my husband was keen to repeat the stop again this year. I was hoping to have the great bathroom with the enormous bath and we did! We had a lovely room with French windows which opened onto the balcony which runs around the front of the first floor. From here, you can see... More

Alltogether we stayed almost 10 days in the guesthouse . It is so good, that we came back after having toured the Cape Provinces. Beautyful atmosphere, nicely decorated rooms and lounges and overall this marvelous veranda . We spent hours on it just watching, talking and drinking a glass of wine. Also the breakfast at Chartfield was excellent.

perfect location ..two block walk to the main street of the 'village' ..and 10 min. stroll to the local tidal pool for a swim. The property is spotless and all the staff so pleasant and helpful. Stunning views from the balcony ..great choice of restaurants all in walking distance ... you don't have to drive ...its all here !

Great stay and beautiful guest house. The separate bathrooms won't be ideal for everyone, but overall a beautiful, peaceful and clean room. Will definitely visit again and recommend them to fellow travellers.

We have had a fantastic stay at Castle Hill. Madeleine has a so much style, and so does her guesthouse! And the terrace!! Wow! It's not just the splendid view to the ocean – this view is emphasized by a terrific frame. We loved it! The entire staff has been very very friendly and helpful. We've also very much enjoyed the...

Location not clearly signposted on the main road. Took awhile locating the Inn. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Pleasant staff who attended to us. Location excellent and walking distance to docks and restaurants in the town. For basic accommodation its good to go.

We had a memorable night at the Castle Inn for all the wrong reasons as it was the first night of the raging forest fires above Kalk Bay. The Guest House is charming and in a good position and the owner very helpful and for an overnight stay perfect. As we had to keep all windows and doors closed due... More

Lovely old building, easy accsess to shops and cafe's, wonderful sea views and helpful friendly staff. In need of new bed and bedding and towels in our room though! Expensive bottled water in room, small complementary cheaper brand would be better maybe?
