Chartfield is a lovely, peaceful guesthouse perfectly situated in Kalk Bay. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good value for money. Room was large and comfortable, and the atmosphere was homely. Relaxing stay.

Perfectly located just above the Kalk bay harbour With excellent views over false bay And a few minutes walk into the Kalk bay village TV Channels weren't working though when we were there which was quite frustrating and our safe didn't lock properly but overall enjoyed our stay and love the area in general

Everything was great except there were no drawers to unpack smalls (socks, underwear etc) and no table top to put the tea tray on. A set of drawers with a nice size flat top would have made the room far more user-friendly.

We stayed a night at Chartfield House. The décor is fresh white and wooden floors -- a perfect summer look. For a freezing day in Kalk Bay it was not cosy enough. A friend had stayed a few days in summer and raved about the place. She spoke about how she could've spent the entire day sitting on the patio... More

Chartfield Guest House was a perfect find for us on our SA travels. We had a lovely room on the first floor with a panoramic view over the bay. The room had a separate lounge area so was very spacious. The staff were all incredibly helpful & friendly with the personal touches you don't tend to get from a larger... More
