Charming Chartfield
Absolutely stunning location with magnificent views over the sea and the mountains Good location in the middle of town so I didn’t need the car for local swimming or dining

Great location with a warm friendly welcome
This was my second stay at the guesthouse and once again I received a very friendly welcome. Nice location, rooms are clean and bright. I was attending training held at the guest house and the food and service was great. Love the pain au chocolate and pastry twists with our coffee .... not to mention the cake on friday! great location, great people, lovely stay.

A lovely and affordable place to stay in Kalk Bay
I have stayed at chartfield a number of places and enjoy it every time. It is very reasonable for what you get, and very comfortable. Perfectly situated to experience Kalk Bay.
MICHAEL PAUL, za6 night business trip
Good 6.0
Great location in Kalk Bay. Light sleepers beware!
The guest house is located close to the bars / restaurants / shops in Kalk Bay. The access point is up a inclined path - so might be tough for the less mobile traveller. The guesthouse itself has incredible views - a lovely spot to sit and watch the ocean / have a few drinks. Simple facilities but does the job for a few nights stay. They provide beach towels and umbrellas for the guests. My towel was not the cleanest - I found some bird poo when I unrolled the towel.. this could have been bad luck from when the towels were dried! I struggled on occasion to find staff to buy water from, or to check out for example. It feels like the ‘front of house’ still needs some work. The rooms are simple but fresh and good size. There were a few stray hairs on the bedding, but nothing too major. Bed was a good size and comfortable for 2. The main issue I had was the noise. The doors do not block any sound from the corridors, and the stairs / floorboards are extremely creaky. The guesthouse offers a complimentary tea/coffee from 7am - 9am. Between these hours I could hear the drinks being made, and the staff stomping around to deliver these to the guests. This might not bother everyone - but for me, a light sleeper, it was quite an issue. For these reasons I would say the guesthouse would serve you well for a night or two.. but I wouldn’t stay for much longer!
