Chartfield Guesthouse

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Chartfield Guest House is exceptional. It is beautifully situated and tastefully decorated. Our room (the Loft) had a fantastic view over Kalk Bay in all directions. The staff is very nice, professional and helpful. The breakfast menue is to die for, and tables are set out on the patio above the beautiful and very well kept garden. There is a large pool and sunbeds scattered around the garden. The Guest House is within walking distance from everything in Kalk Bay, but far enough from the main street not to hear any noise. I would recommend a stay there to anyone.

The staff at Chartfield made our conference a huge success. Their flexibility on our schedule and plans made it so easy for our schedule to unfold as we wished. Their attention to every detail ensured our guests were properly looked after. And the food was incredible! This is a real retreat - not your standard conference venue - I highly recommend hosting your team here!

We got a deluxe room but it was clearly no where near as nice as the other rooms. We were perched over the main entrance with no privacy from a public path, so the curtains were drawn. The other apartments got sunrise and panoramic views with privacy. They looked awesome... In fairness, we could see the sea and sleep with the windows open but it was hardly deluxe. There was no fridge and everything is extra, including WiFi to the bedroom and breakfast. After seeing the beautiful photos we were really hoping for more. Make sure you contact them and get a proper deluxe room (and don't just pay for one).

Location of this guesthouse is amazing - it is walking distance from everything in Kalk Bay. Room was lovely and clean. Staff is very friendly. Parking was a slight problem. We will definitely return!

Excellent staff, excellent room, excellent service, excellent food, excellent view. Staff very helpful and polite. Short walk to all the shops and restaurants. Absolutely loved it there and will be returning

We’d trawled over everything Cape Town had to offer, but couldn’t find anything which appealed. We then happened on Kalk Bay and the Chartfield. Both were brilliant finds. It has plenty of street parking in the quiet road outside. The staff were brilliant and the breakfasts are superb. Lovely spot 2 minutes walk from the sea front, shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and were not disappointed. The attention to detail by the owners is really impressive - stunning breakfasts, great service, chic decor, lovely gardens (with great pool), and everything spotless. And of course, the superb views across the bay. Very highly recommended.

We spent two nights at Chartfield Guest House to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. What a wonderful experience. The staff has to be complemented for their warm, friendly and efficient service and the breakfast - well it's to die for! Chartfield is really good value and has to be one of the nicest guest houses on the coastline with a spectacular view of False Bay. Overall - a fantastic experience and we will certainly be back. Well done!

The guesthouse was even better then it looke don the website. The room was gorgeous, with fantastic views of the sea and the garden below. The whole house is very pleasantly decorated. Breakfast in the gardens was wonderful, with a fantastic choice of food, and every morning a different fresh juice. Our eight year old enjoyed himself playing in the gardens. Staff was very professional and very friendly, we really felt spoiled at Chartfield.

Stayed at No.1 Mill House, Chartfield Guest House, Kalk Bay, Cape Town a very comfortable 3 Bed/3 Bathroom Townhouse. A very warm welcome from our host and were shown our accommodation, parking and all facilities. This really was home from home. Real quality fittings and furnishings. Excellent service, House was cleaned and beds made everyday. The house is perfectly positioned just off of the High St and immediately opposite Cuba Cocktail Bar and beach! Absolutely beautiful and would thoroughly recommend.
