Recent guest reviews

Chartfield Guesthouse is an absolute gem! Rooms, decor, were so beautiful, we could watch whales from the veranda, the breakfast was incredibly tasty and the staff very friendly and helpful! Perfectly located and very well kept grounds. If I have to say something negative it would be that it would be nice for the wifi to work in the rooms not just common areas, but since i was on holiday there was no need to be online anyway! Thanks you for a wonderful time, I will definitely be back!

Although it was only an overnight stay, I loved the set up the apartment. Everything is neat and tidy. The view from the balcony perfect. so glad I got that apartment. The colours you chose for the apartment is perfect and it happens that blue is my favourite colour. The apartment basically lack absolutely nothing as you have everything a lady needs eg even a hairdryer. So I loved it. Will definitely make a booking again.

Excellent , I cannot fault anything in this guesthouse, staff helpful and professional, food outstanding, clean, comfortable . You can tell it is owner run . Breakfast was amazing , we were a group of 6 and we're all happy

Breakfast was absolutely outstanding. my genuine opinion of this hotel, and that I have no personal or business affiliation with this establishment, and have not been offered any incentive or payment originating from the establishment to write this review.

We were received in a very friendly manner. It is no secret that Kalk Bay has narrow streets and therefore parking is a bit of a problem - luck enough to find one! We were taken to our apartment which was clean and spacious and close to where we wanted to be - the theatre and to browse the following day - great. Although we were only there for one night and although there are some nice coffee shops close by, a few more coffee and milk sachets would have been appreciated. Do not regret our stay. Thanks very much.

Chatfield was an amazing place to stay. The location is perfect and the rooms are very comfortable. Staff were attentive and always happy to help and give suggestions on what to do in the area. Breakfast was amazing, with a huge selection to choose from. All up, we loved our stay and would definitely recommend Chartfield to anyone travelling to Cape Town.

I had a wonderful stay at Chartfield Guest House, it is in the most beautiful Setting in Kalk Bay with beautiful views Of the icean and mountains. The service Was top class and the breakfasts tasty And beautifully presented. A most enjoyable stay. Well dine to the Chartfield team. I will definately be back

If you want comfort, friendliness, helpfulness and good breakfast for a great price stay here. A truely great time we had and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are big and bright and airy, the bathrooms simple and clean and the laundry service second to none. And they will bring you tea or coffee in bed.

This has been my second stay at Chartfield Guest House and I am pleased to say that on both occasions my expectations have been exceeded, thanks to the amazing staff, the delightful venue, amazing views and beautiful location. The rooms are functional and simple, eclectic yet modern; and the breakfast is varied, delicious and cooked with freshly sourced ingredients. I will be back soon... Special thanks to Lisa and John for their cheerful demeanour and 'can do' attitude!! 😊

Me and wife drove all the way from Melkbos to Kalkbay to have THE BEST breakfast in the whole of Cape Town. Chartfield has the best breakfasts we have ever come across at any establishment. The staff is super friendly and goes out of their way to make one feel like family. After breakfast we were shown how the diffrent types of rooms look. We will DEFINTELY stay here when we have our next Cape Town holiday. The whole place is very tastefully decorated and one get a sense of luxury without the decor being overwhelming. Chartfield is a true gem and anyone thinking of staying over in Kalkbay should definitely put this on their list
