Our second visit and was an absolute pleasure yet again. Would and do recommend to anyone. Entire team friendly and always very helpful. Looking forward to when we can come and visit again. Many thanks

We had a wonderful stay at the guesthouse! Upon arrival, the staff at the front desk enthusiastically greeted us and helped us check in smoothly. They helped us get our bags to the room and find local parking. They were hospitable and kind during our whole stay. The room was comfortable, clean, and cozy. The building is a little older, but kept up well. The decor had a youthful, hip style, creating a relaxed atmosphere. We didn't have time to enjoy the nice breakfast in the morning, but the complementary latte and hot chocolate to the room made for a great way to start the day! We would gladly stay here again and recommend it to others!

Bit tricky to find & parking scarce. Room was clean & comfortable but basic. Shower was powerful and bed comfortable . 2 minutes walk to main road in Kalk Bay so well situated for shops and restaurants.

I had a group of 21 from a liberal arts college in the US stay there for 4 nights. The place was amazing. Perfectly suited to house all of us, the management and staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed--including seminar space and a beautiful catered dinner one night. The guesthouse itself is gorgeously decorated and everyone who worked there was nothing shy of helpful. My students loved the delicious breakfasts and their days walking around Kalk Bay and out to Muizenberg. I run this class yearly and have no doubt we'll be back at Charterfield for the foreseeable future.

My one night stay at Chartfield house was delightful and affordable. The staff were very helpful, and the room was clean and decorated in a modern, pleasing way. I could walk down to the town and grab an early morning coffee and croissant from the Olympia. It was lovely staying on the middle of town, so close to the beach and all the restaurants. Highly recommended!

The best view in Kalk Bay, our rooms were nice and cozy. Staff really frendly and helpfull. We only have problems with the car because Kalk Bay is at the base of a mountain with narrow streets. We ask for help in the hotel as we didn´t know where to park and they give us a solution.

This was my second visit to Chartfield Guest House. Once again I found the staff friendly, helpful and efficient. I felt relaxed, comfortable and safe, and would definitely stay at Chartfield again if visiting lovely Kalk Bay. My room had a beautiful view, and the breakfast menu is excellent.

We stayed here for 3 nights and the rooms were nice and of a good size. Staff were ok not super friendly and I found carrying the luggage down a flight of stairs and then up another number of stairs a bit of a pain. Entrance would be so much easier from the top of the road. Breakfast while nice was not of great value and not sure about the tapas feel? It would be nicer with a basic breakfast and toast. Kettles would be nice in the room. Location is the winning factor. Wifi is painful as they only give you 50mb

This s a lovely place with large rooms large views a lovely garden and above all friendly and helpful staff who could not do enough for you. We really needed this welcome after an incident on our way to South Africa. The breakfast menu was remarkable too!!

Chartfield House was in an excellent location in Kalk Bay with a short walk to all amenities of Kalk Bay.The staff were only to willing to help with requests and there service was outstanding. The room had a wonderful view of False Bay,it was clean and tidy. Breakfast was great with a variety of choices to be selected.A small reading selection was available in there lounge room.
