A very good B&B. Two suggestions: Coffee and tea making equipment should be available in the room and off street parking should be made available to guests. The rooms are spacious and beds comfortable.

Hi Dries Thank you very much for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Chartfield. Unfortunately we do not have space for off street parking around the guesthouse or anywhere else in Kalk Bay. We have security guards and they keep and eye on the cars during the night. We know Kalk Bay gets very busy and to... More

Great team. Friendly, helpful and informative. Do something about the bathroom - so small that the towel rain is in the bedroom! It also needs heating for that time of year. Uncomfortable. Parking is also a problem you might want to think about.

Hi Stephen Thank you very much for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you were not 100% happy with your room as it suppose to be. Every room at Chartfield is individual in the size and the interior. It's true that some bathrooms are smaller than others. As Chartfield is a very old house we are not able to... More

A relaxing experience. Service was excellent with staff being incredibly pleasant and obliging. Excellent value for money. Breakfast was amazing! For that holiday by the sea an excellent choice. Just get the powers that be to speed up those roadworks.

On the down-side, due to the location, parking is not ideal. I used Booking,com for the on-line room reservation and was expecting a room with a bath, so we were a bit disappointed with the bathroom. The view and friendliness of the staff however made our stay a very pleasant one and we will use the facilities again in future

This was my second visit within two years and it was just as memorable. The views were wonderful and the staff couldn't be more helpful. I do hope I can visit again one day. Just wish they had tea facilities in their rooms.

Amazing place. Staff so professional. Breakfast is 5 star. You can sit out in the balcony and see the bay, we spotted a whale from there. Staff helped us with places to visit.

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.

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.

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!
