Chartfield Guesthouse evokes the spirit of a time when everything was done with a little more style and with a lot more attention to detail. It's a haven created to whisk you away from the cares of the world the moment you step inside this grand old house, which has been standing for over 120 years overlooking the picturesque Kalk Bay harbour. Now lovingly restored, Chartfield Guesthouse is nestled in this quaint seaside village where the pace and charm is reminiscent of a bygone era while every modern convenience is provided for.


Our exceptional a la carte breakfast is available for an extra R120.00 per person per day.

Superb location

Would recommend Wed, Jun 22, 2011
The guest house is elevated above the main road in Kalt Bay and enjoys views over the harbour. Our room was number 6 and had a covered view of the harbour, Simonstown and the sea. The staff were extremely friendly. The lounge area had lots of comfy seating and was kept warm with a log burner. The bedroom itself was warm and had enough storage space for our belongings. The bathroom was enormous with a separate walk-in shower and a corner bath. There was plenty of hot water and the lights in the bathroom gave off plenty of heat. Both the bathroom and bedroom were bright and airy. We had a lovely, complimentary hot drink brought to our room each morning, ordered at reception the previous evening. The breakfast offered was innovative and tasty with plenty of choice for everyone. The guest house arranged for our transport to the Cape and we had a very interesting tour around Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, Simonstown (including the Penguin Sanctuary) and the surrounding vineyards. We saw baboons, impala and ostrich. The driver was interesting to talk to and showed us much we would have missed on our own. The train ride into the centre of Cape Town was approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes at a cost of around £1.50 return. Fishoek is the next stop along the line and the beach here is lovely and sandy, with a cafe right on the front. The bay is lovely, with picturesque views along the shore line. Seals abound in the sea all around here and a Southern Right Whale was spotted by my husband on a fishing trip, (on a trawler). The harbour had 3 fish restaurants, of which we tried 1.


We went to The Bell Inn, situated inbetween the railway line and the sea (the breakers throw spray into the open sided restaurant when the wind is in the right direction). The steak was approximately £8.00 and absolutely delicious- I would return just for the steak! (beer's not bad either). For those of you who have a habit of smoking, it is permitted inside at the Bell Inn!
