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 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.

For a vacation in Cape Town one is spoilt for choice, literally among scores of locations and hundreds reputed establishments - yet the Chartfield guesthouse outshines many of them. Is it the location in the midst of Kalk Bay, or is it the limitless views across the false bay - of sea, sky, coast and mountain? Perhaps it is all...
