gorgeous guesthouse in a great location
clean, friendly, helpful, kind
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!

Incredible View just steps to seaside walk
Comfy Beds, morning wake up with coffee of your choice!
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.

Impersonal and generic
Nice big room, clean and comfortable
after a months travelling in south africa and staying in accommodation varying from 5-star to backpacker, this was the least appealing. the room was spacious and clean but the whole atmosphere was very impersonal and generic and there was no parking. totally forgettable and for the price, poor value.

great place, friendly staff, beautiful room
nice big room ; very helpful staff
This hotel was one of the best on our 2 weeks trip through south-africe. The room was spacious, clean, nicely decorated. We got a (free) coffee in the morning, was was a great thing to start the day. The location is also good, with a view on the harbour. I can really recommend this place

Good view and central location
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.

Neatness, attention to detail, quality of furnishings and fittings
we loved pat & her husband's attention to detail and the immaculateness of her guest house. pat was attentive but not over-bearing and we enjoyed our stay.
