I only stayed for one night, but staff were very pleasant and friendly. Room is very large and quaint. If it were not raining, the patio would have been a great place to relax. Very close to nice restaurants and other amenities.

The view from the Verandah is amazing. Rooms are comfy and large, lots of storage space and the bathrooms are equipped with soap. It's quiet throughout day and night. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was only a night but I can definitely see myself coming back here for another relaxing beach front vacation. Thanks for a great... More

We were made most welcome and our room was comfortable and clean. It opened onto a wrap round upper verandah which gave a spectacular sea view. the staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasant and friendly.

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...
