3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Lovely location, with lovely views from the front of the property. Close to amenities, shops and easy access to tourist locations. Beautiful older property which has been well renovated, guest rooms are fitted with all the basic requirements. only on road parking available, with a short walk required to the property. Service after hours is very limited.

Visiting from the UK, we were very pleasantly surprised by this lovely guesthouse. Rooms (including bathrooms) were very spacious and clean, we were warmly welcomed by the owners Shireen and Florian and all other staff members, who all took the time to help us plan our days in the area and keep our children entertained. Hot water bottles were provided... More

Nice large rooms that were ideal for us. Current construction is an issue, but otherwise the location is close to the bay, and walking distance to many eating places. Great service, awesome breakfast.

Hi V J Thank you very much for your kind comment. We are glad that you had a nice stay with us. Regarding the constructions, it is the first time that someone finds this to be an issue.

The location is great, the rooms are comfortable, the owners and staff are fantastic - friendly and knowledgeable - and breakfast is to die for. All in all a perfect place for a relaxing getaway. My only regret is that I can only give it five stars!

Our family of four stayed for four days in the Loft room and one of the "corner" rooms, both having beautiful views of the Kalk Bay Harbour and the Ocean (which we experienced during a winter storm and during beatiful sunny days - the weather changes fast during Cape winters...). The Guest House has a welcoming "feel at home" atmosphere.... More

My partner and I booked for a night at Chartfield House to celebrate an anniversary. A friend and I requested to view the facilities a few weeks earlier and were impressed by the rooms and especially the impressive breakfast menu which we were told was included in the room price. I went online to book for a night and saw... More

Hi Glenda Thank you very much for your honest review. I would like to apologize for the misunderstanding with the breakfast and I'm sad to hear that you would not suggest Chartfield to your friends and family. We do not advertise on any website that breakfast is included as it always says room only which means excluding breakfast. Please note... More

We only stayed one night and even though we did not have a sea view, the room was lovely, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only thing that I would suggest that they change is that they don't have tea&coffee facilities in the room. You can order from the bar but I prefer to have it on hand... More

Outstanding long weekend stay at Kalk Bay, this little gem is located on top of the hill overlooking Kalk bay harbour, to say the views are stunning are an understatement, this place has unbelievable views of False bay and beyond, great location with easy access to public transport and plenty to do.

Pleasantly surprised to find this beautiful accommodation in Kalk Bay. Ideally located, walking distance from the Main Road, with all the lovely coffee shops, and curios stores. The service staff was wonderful, very professional and accommodating. Will definitely recommend it to all my friends and family, for short term or long term stay.
