We stayed here for 6 nights while our 2 friends stayed for 4 nights. We swapped rooms with them as they couldn't manage the steep stairs to The Loft. It was well worth it! The room is lovely with a great little balcony & amazing views to the sea & mountains. You can see the view from the shower &...

Chartfield Guest House is an interesting B&B/Guest House set in an elevated position overlooking the harbour with its working fishing boats and further out to False Bay. The building was once (I assume) a grand house which has been converted to a B&B, the building retains its character with good views, open balconies and terraced gardens on the seaward side,...

We did not want to leave this charming hotel overlooking Kalk Bay. The staff was warm and helpful. The grounds were lovely -- morning coffee on terrace overlooking pool, garden, harbor. The old house has lovely and very modern rooms with amenities, but requires you to walk a lot of stairs and has low water pressure.

Hi Db Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay at Chartfield. If you visit us next time there is a alternative way without any stairs via Windsor Road. Regarding the Water pressure, due to a severe Drought we do not have enough water in the Western Cape. Therefore...

This is the type of away from home accommodation and service that one dreams of getting. A perfect score all round. Clean, comfortable, casual with a professional touch. The bedrooms are particularly comfy with views of the town and the sea.. Loved the pool and chill spaces outside.A bonus is the coffee is also good.

We were lucky enough to find a few days when they had a free room over the busy season, as they generally only take 2 week bookings. I can honestly say the service here is better than at any other hotel or guest house I have stayed at, and I travel a fair bit. If you stand looking slightly lost...

We know this guesthouse and stayed here before, but in the cottage it was for the first time and everything was fine. If somothing was missing, like kitchen utensils, it was then quickly provided. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Chartfield Guest House also to other people.
