          I highly recommend Chartfield, from the extremely friendly welcome from the staff down to the amazing room. I chose Chartfield to celebrate my birthday and I wasn’t disappointed. I didn’t try the restaurant but wish I had. I will definitely stay there again!

          Excellent service attitude, great view”
          A pity we only managed to stay 1 night here. The comfortable room we had offered a great view of the Kalk Bay Habour. Also, the accommodation is right smack in the heart of Kalk Bay – it's walking distance to great food and coffee from Olympia Cafe & Deli and Bootlegger Coffee. You'll also find plenty of vintage stores in the vicinity. I'd also like to commend Chartfield Guesthouse on their great service attitude. My rented car from Hertz suffered a punctured tyre – which Hertz was reluctant to come over and fix. We don't own a car back home (it's too expensive) so we don't know how to replace a tyre. Clearly Hertz didn't really care and told us to look for help ourselves, or wait 5 hours for them to fix it. Thankfully, the staff at Chartsfield Guesthouse got their staff to help us – without a grumble under the hot sun. And to add on, that's AFTER we'd checked out. This is great service attitude! Will definitely choose Chartfield Guesthouse if we ever visit that area again.

          We got a deluxe room but it was nothing near what this place offers. We were perched over the main entrance with no privacy from a public path, so the curtains were drawn. 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. After seeing the beautiful photos we were really hoping for more.

          Above average”
          First let me say the staff were amazing and very helpful, however during our two-night stay they were painting outside or next to our room. We dropped our bags to the room when checking in and went on our travels for the day. When we arrived back at around 11 pm we went to our room and the smell of paint was so overpowering it made our stay very uncomfortable. It wasn't a regular paint either it reminded me of a nail polish only 10 times stronger. I went down to reception to try and possibly change room but I stood at reception for up to 15 minutes and no one was there to help so I just decided to try to get some sleep. When we got into bed we noticed our double bed had 2 single duvets ??? For me, this is simply unacceptable and unprofessional. Wifi is another small issue and complimentary Wifi is only offered in the reception area. I'm afraid for next time I would not be so quick to stay here again and would find a similarly priced hotel that offers double duvets and free wifi throughout the hotel. There are some nice aspects of this hotel and we enjoyed the hot water bottles that they offer along with the open fire which they light at night.

          Peaceful haven”
          After hectic Cape Town it was lovely to relax here - got the best nights sleep of the whole two week trip. On street parking down a back street some way from the hotel was an issue due to our late arrival and the main entrance is on a flight of steps so was hard work dragging heavy cases resulting in a few trips down the road. Ok for us as we are Young but could have been a problem for my parents or mobility impaired. Wonderful staff and agree with everyone else the breakfast was great

          what a fantastic way to start our vacation! not only did chartfield guesthouse upgrade us twice while stayed (once upon arrival and again at the end of our stay), they were kind, helpful, and very friendly. the owner sat with us and mapped out a fantastic itinerary while in the cape town area and managed to hit everything we had hoped to do and more. the food is lovely, the coffee is flowing, the views we had from our room were breathtaking, and the town has a plethora of great eateries. it may seem like a bit out of the way from downtown but don't be deceived. kalk bay was a perfect spot of us to stay while visiting the area as most "tourist attractions" aren't necessarily downtown anyway. we would go back here in a heart beat!

          This guesthouse is a charming small home with a mix of rooms, some overlooking the ocean. We had a good sized room with a king sized bed, and a large bathroom with tub (#7). Breakfast was not included, but the price was very reasonable for fresh fruit salad, muesli and coffee. We loved being so close to all the restaurants and shops nearby. Check out Olympia Deli for the bakery items and for a special dinner, make reservations at the Harbour House and get an Oceanside table and fresh seafood. Loved this place, and full recommendation for couples and families alike.

          Central location
          we enjoyed our stay at chartfield the views are good views of the harbour and it is in the centre of the town so really handy. it is also a good base for exploring the cape. it has a lot of steps so would not be ideal for those with mobility difficulties. it would benefit from tea and coffee making facilities in the room as we are very early birds and could not get a drink until breakfast. a long mirror in the room would also have been a bonus. the breakfast menu offered a very wide choice but during our 4 day stay our breakfast order was always wrong but just a minor issue i guess. overall a very pleasant stay.
