Beautiful place, lots of private and communal spaces, extremely nice and efficient staff (special thanks Madelein and Caroline!), extremely comfortable beds. Stunning view, lots of lovely cafes and shops a two minute walk away yet it's usually very quiet. Note that it's sort of... More

Castle Hill S, Manager at The Inn at Castle Hill, responded to this review

Thank you very much for the review. It was an absolute pleasure to have this family stay with us! **I would just like to note, for other guests, that the guesthouse is not usually self-catering, we made a special arrangement with this family as we were quite, but this service is not available to future bookers.

Great old building, great views and close to local restuarants. Beautiful old furniture and rooms. Personnel friendly and helpful. Close to the Kalkbay station. Up the street from the famous Brass bell restuarant.

Wonderful time spend in Castle Hill and I can recommend going there. Nice and quiet as well as neat and a beautiful view and close to centre town and harbour. Perfect place if you need a weekend away.

always a perfect place to stay when in CT. Very efficient and friendly staff, beautiful views and perfectly situated close to stunning restaurants too. The only possible negative is the parking which is in short supply. Will always go back.

We will definitely be back. The Castle Hill is walking distance from the nearby restaurants and little shops and our rooms had a lovely sea view . The hospitality was so warm and friendly and the rooms are clean and cozy.

The Inn at castle Hills superseded our expectations! Close to so many restaurants and the beach and public transport. The surrounds accommodates day or night life, and every kind of people, young and old.

My fiance and I have been to a few lodges in the area, but this time we were 100% satisfied; the service, the room, the view, the extras. And, it costed the same as the other lodges. Thank you Castle Hill - our return is guaranteed.
