“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights, after our honeymoon (before heading home) to catch up with all our friends in Johannesburg. The manager was friendly and very helpful - helping us with all our luggage and a big pile of gifts that was sent from Cape town. We did find the breakfast set-up a bit strange - as there is a cold buffet and then you get this hot breakfast (without ordering) and I must admit, that I didn't eat half of what was on there as it's quite substantial. The set-up though is quite unique, very safe and the rooms are stunning! Would highly recommend an would love to return.

Room Tip: Absolutely loved the Kings rooms

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

We visited Chartwell during the school holidays for a morning. We read about it in a local publication which spoke about it having an authentic Cypress maze.
What a beautiful place. Tamara showed us the inside of the castle and took us on a little tour of the garden.
It's by no means an authentic castle, but is really quaint and has been rebuilt from the rather quirky beginnings to what it is now.
The rooms we saw were well appointed in a really quiet almost rural, but yet not too far from the hustle and bustle of Sandton, setting.
The maze is great fun for the kids. Please respect the growth of the maze and don't allow children to take shortcuts through the hedges as this damages this beautiful heritage.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

Stayed here for about 2 days and had an amazing experience. Penny's are the most lovely hosts i have ever seen. They made sure i feel at home and cooked lovely home made meals for me. They had been to India so we shared a lot of stories about their experience there. I was staying in a room called Buckingham Suite which was lovely with a bathroom as big as the bedroom. Nice and Cosy place. The Penny's were also very protective since i was a lone lady traveler and guided me while i was in Johannesburg with some valuable advice.
