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

I loved the attention to detail here- breakfast was beautiful (the best omelettes and coffee we've had yet in SA) without it being 'fussy'. The rooms are simple but clean and large and we wanted for nothing. The organic red wine they provided was delicious. Our room went out on to the shared balcony which was a lovely way to... More

We loved everything: The location, the lovely victorian house with verandas were you could sit for ever and watch the sea.The service was excellent. The room big and very nice decorated. On top of that the charming and very kind manager that made our stay to something extra. We highly recomend Castle Hill!

Kalk Bay was a wonderful place to visit, and the Inn at Castle Hill a lovely place to stay while there, and very welcoming. I loved the wrap around balcony with nice views, and it was an easy walk to the main street.

We had a very good and warm welcome. Our host did all to do the best to afford us. Rooms are quiet and have a very large terrace. The carpet is not a good idea and the bath room need a little update !! With a little thing more , the room could be very nice !

All of the quaint and wonderful atmosphere of Kalk Bay pervades this most pleasant home. It is the ideal place just to relax and enjoy it all. The facilities and service are more than what you need. You won't go wrong to stay over in The Inn at Castle Hill.

I came to find a room on the off-chance, after other per-booked accommodation was not satisfactory. Fortunately there was a room available, and I spent a comfortable 4 nights there, at a very reasonable rate. The bathroom needed a bit of an update, but the bedlinen was high quality and the bed very comfortable. I did not think it necessary... More

Bathrooms and overall atmosphere is lacking due to the property being old, which also has its charm, but a couple of things need to be done to create a more homey feeling. I felt a little to "locked in" with all the systems to get in and out. Making guests use the back entrance is also not very welcoming as... More
