Chambery is one of the most beautiful guest houses I have ever stayed at. The staff was extremely friendly and the rooms/cottages were furnished beautifully. The Victorian style bath and skylight window in the bathroom was a welcome treat that added to my relaxing stay. The garden is a must see! I was truly sad when my trip came to...

Close to shops ,gym and airport. If you don't have a sense of direction, could be tricky to find you way around that area, but was easy to located it on GPS. Felt safe and secure. It was in a quite neighborhood. If you have heavy luggage you need to carry it, because there is a lot of stairs, steps...

My name is Kayakangu and it means 'my home'! Certainly Chambery Cottage is indeed my home, with beautiful gardens and hospitality... I consider myself as an easy going and thoughtful person and Chambery provided just the right environment!

This is the nicest B & B I've ever stayed in. For a week, I stayed in the guest cottage which is spacious, well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. The B & B is located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood about 15-20 mins Uber drive away from town. In my opinion, it's well worth the value and better to stay here...

We spent a terrific time in Chambery. Everything so private, pretty, comfortable and well protected. Very nice residential area, all the hot spots within half an hour by car. The owner is living on the property herself, always helpful if You have questions or requests.

We had a very pleasant stay with Cheryl at her Cottage in the grounds of her home. The Cottage was very pretty and roomy, and stayed cool even on hot days. The use of her lovely garden and swimming pool was wonderful. She is a super hostess and was most helpful.

We cannot wait to return to Chambery. We had such a wonderful time enjoying the fantastic hospitality on offer from Cheryl Suter, her Team and her Hounds! The Studio suited us beautifully with excellent accommodation in a superb location, the view of the garden and use of the lovely salt water pool. We would not even consider staying anywhere else...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in the leafy suburbs of Upper Kenilworth, a stone throw from all major amenities, you'll find Chambery. This treasured piece of old world charm, under the canopy of Table Mountain, encased in lush gardens with oversized salt water pool has plenty of space to stretch your legs. If it's the home away from home feel you're after choose between two sumptuously appointed, private cottages boasting the best in local design and luxurious finishes. For the business or overnight traveller we offer a 'loft style' room within the main house complete with separate entrance and garden balcony. The cottages are on a self-catering basis, breakfast is optional. Locally sourced produce, and garden foraged greens play a huge role in the substantial breakfast menu served in the main house dining room or on the patio in the summer. From the bookings of local eateries to suggestions of the best-kept Cape Town secrets, fresh flowers and handmade biscuits, our aim is to please. We delight in the small details and see the return of many of our guests as testament to our tailored service. ... more   less
