Pros: Views, location, large two bedroom unit.
The views and the staff were both great. But we had two real problems - first the unit was freezing. We built a fire, but that only helped warm up one bedroom. Also, the family upstairs (permanent residents we think) were extremely loud. We aren't usually very picky - but it was extremely loud, from running and jumping kids to playing the piano - you could hear every little noise loudly. Also,one of the bedroom windows had a broken lock and thus couldn't be locked.

Great hidden gemPosted Jan 27, 2017
Great place one block back from waterfront. We wish we could have stayed more nights to fully enjoy this property.

Nice stay!Posted Nov 14, 2016
Pros: Location was ideal.
Cons: Room was very light so difficult to sleep (without eye mask). Also, footsteps ☹️️
Location: Whale watching (weather permitting) as well as boat trips. Nice (no frills) cafe called Kali cafe right down on the harbour was great.
We stayed in room 1. Only downside really was hearing every footstep from the room above (I know, not much they can do about that). Breakfast also was extra (R120 pp) when booking indirectly...free if booking direct with the guest house. Location was great for seeing the sights. No evening meal option meant eating out which was ok. All in all, everything you need and I suppose you don't really spend too much time in room anyway (well, we don't tend to). Oh, wifi was extra to (250mb foc, they more available at a fee)

Nice view with rude staff.Posted Aug 16, 2016 on Hotels
Very rude staff. Could not find the 2nd room we booked, and blatantly told us that we will have to phone Hotels.com to sort it out ourselves. Eventually the booking was found but with a wrong first name? Admin error?...No introduction given to what facilities are on offer at this hotel? Our 2 rooms were allocated in 2 opposite areas of the Guest House. No effort were made to ensure their guests were happy and comfortable. Luckily the Guest House had a great location for shopping & restaurants & pubs...which made up for our rude welcoming.

Excellent GetawayPosted Jul 12, 2016
Pros: Very clean and the room was exactly as pictures on the website.
Chartfield Guesthouse was a very pleasant surprise and a great escape from the hustle of Cape Town. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We only stayed two nights ( it was winter there) but I would stay longer during the summer months if the opportunity arose. It is close to the center of town and all restaurants are within easy walking distance. The Olympic Cafe is a must!

Friendly guesthouse with great viewsPosted Apr 17, 2016
Pros: See comments above - to summarise, we felt that we were welcomed and that the guesthouse was committed to making our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Cons: The WiFi was not great (and a small extra charge) but this may have been outside the guesthouse's control.
Location: Right in the middle of Kalk Bay and two minutes (slow) walk from shops and restaurants. Convenient for Cape Town - Uber fare to Cape Town about £8.
We stayed for 4 nights in the Impala room and had a wonderful time. Highlights included the views of the sea and the mountains from our room, the lovely breakfasts served outside and the friendly and helpful staff. The guesthouse also arranged the transfer back to the airport at a very reasonable price.

The lay-out of the room was not great. The bedside tables were way to small for the huge lamps and the one lamp in front of the entrance to the bathroom.
