1st trip to Cape Town.

This was my first trip to Cape Town and my first trip abroad as a solo female traveler. The staff at Chartfield Guesthouse was exceptionally helpful from the initial booking, arranging airport transfers, and just being genuinely gracious hosts. The view from my room of the bay was spectacular. Waking up to the sunrise and the sound of waves was an extra bonus that I didn't expect. Their coffee and breakfasts were some of the best I had during my stay. As a first-time solo female traveler, I had my concerns about safety, but those were unfounded as I walked everywhere without any issues.

Heerlike verblyf, pragtige uitsig.

Waarvan ons gehou het: Die kamer is baie netjies, die bed is gróót en baie gemaklik, en die uitsig vanuit die kamer is regtig fantasties. Die beddegoed is van baie goeie gehalte en ons het soos konings geslaap. Daar is boonop ’n koffiemasjien in die kamer! Die stortkop sit lekker hoog; ons is albei lank en kon lekker stort. ’n Klein detail soos om aan te dui watter kant die stort se handvatsel gedraai moet word vir warm water het my aangenaam verras. (Ook, die stort is lekker groot). Die Chartfield-span was baie vriendelik en ons altyd gretig gehelp. Ook waar ons in die dorpie gestap het en werkers in hulle swart tops gesien het, was hulle baie vriendelik. Die ligging is regtig uitmuntend. Ons kon orals in Kalkbaai stap waar ons wou wees, en al is die opkomslag van die hoofstraat af teen ’n stewige bult op, maak die uitsig wat ons geniet het dit die moeite werd. Ons het vooraf gevra of ons sjampanjeglase en ’n ysbak kan kry. Hulle kon ons nie met die ysbak help nie, maar het ons sjampanje in die yskas gebêre. Ons het nie ontbyt gehad nie, maar die verblyf sluit elke oggend ’n gratis oggenddrankie in – en dit word boonop na jou kamer toe gebring! Dit was heerlik om op die stoep te sit, ’n flat white te drink en oor Valsbaai uit te kyk. Ons het nooit nie veilig gevoel nie. Die in- en uitgaan by die gastehuis was moeiteloos danksy hulle goeie veiligheidsisteem. Waarvan ons nie gehou het nie: Parkering in die straat buite die gastehuis was taai. Hoe dit nie ’n eenrigtingstraatjie is nie, gaan my verstand te bowe. Ons was gelukkig om parkering te kry, maar indien jy baie wil rondry, mag jy dalk sukkel om weer ’n plekkie te kry. Die trappe na die dakkamer is baie steil en veral die afkomslag was senutergend vir iemand wat hoogtevrees het. Oor die algemeen is daar baie trappe in die huis – nie vir ons ’n probleem nie, maar dit is dalk iets wat ander mense moet weet. Die gastehuis het 'n pak chips, wyn en water op die tafel in die kamer gehad, maar elk met ’n prys aangeheg. Ons het nie enige gratis items verwag nie, maar dit was vir my bietjie onsmaaklik om te weet ’n bottel water kos R35 ekstra. (Dit gaan nie oor die betaal daarvan nie, maar dis die beste en duurste kamer in die huis). Die kamer kan baat met ’n klein yskassie. Buite die gastehuis is ’n plakkaat teen ’n lamppaal opgeplak: Want to start yoga – Start by bending over and picking up your Dog sh*t. Ja, dit is veronderstel om humoristies te wees, maar die feit dat Chartfield onder op die plakaat dat hulle dit versoek, was heeltemal "off brand". Opsommend: Kalkbaai is ’n lieflike bestemming en Chartfield Guesthouse is beslis die tipe plekkie waarheen ons sal teruggaan. Dit was ’n spesiale geleentheid en ons het vir die Loft gegaan, maar die ander kamers bied dalk beter waarde vir geld as jy nie gepla is oor die uitsig nie. Ons beveel dit beslis aan.

Great stay, beautiful view.

What we liked: The room is very neat, the bed is big and very comfortable, and the view from the room is really fantastic. The bedding is of very good quality and we slept like kings. There is also a coffee machine in the room! The shower head sits nicely high; we are both tall and could take a nice shower. A small detail such as indicating which way the shower handle should be turned for hot water pleasantly surprised me. (Also, the shower is nice and big). The Chartfield team were very friendly and always eager to help us. Also where we walked in the village and saw workers in their black tops, they were very friendly. The location is really excellent. We could walk everywhere in Kalk Bay we wanted to be, and even though the climb from the main street is up a steep hill, the view we enjoyed makes it worth it. We asked in advance if we could get champagne glasses and an ice tray. They couldn't help us with the icebox, but kept our champagne in the fridge. We didn't have breakfast, but the stay includes a free morning drink every morning - and it's delivered to your room! It was lovely to sit on the stoep, drink a flat white and look out over False Bay. We never felt unsafe. Getting in and out of the guest house was effortless thanks to their good security system. What we didn't like: Parking on the street outside the guest house was tough. How it's not a one-way street is beyond me. We were lucky to find parking, but if you want to drive around a lot, you may struggle to find a spot again. The stairs to the attic are very steep and especially the descent was nerve-wracking for someone with a fear of heights. In general, there are a lot of stairs in the house - not a problem for us, but it might be something other people need to know. The guest house had a pack of chips, wine and water on the table in the room, but each with a price attached. We didn't expect any free items, but it was a bit unpleasant for me to know that a bottle of water costs R35 extra. (It's not about paying for it, but it's the best and most expensive room in the house). The room could benefit from a small fridge. Outside the guest house, a poster is stuck on a lamp post: Want to start yoga - Start by bending over and picking up your Dog sh*t. Yes, it's supposed to be humorous, but the fact that Chartfield at the bottom of the poster requesting this was completely "off brand". In summary: Kalkbaai is a lovely destination and Chartfield Guesthouse is definitely the type of place we will return to. It was a special occasion and we went for the Loft, but the other rooms may offer better value for money if you don't mind the view. We definitely recommend it.

Puik ligging, maar parkering is 'n probleem. Heerlike, sonnige vertrekke met wonderlike uitsigte en baie goeie akkommodasie en snoesige, gemaklike beddens. Naby al die besienswaardighede en restaurante.

'n Mens kry 'n absolute kosmopolitaanse (Europese) gevoel. Dit was ons tweede besoek en ons sal vir seker weer daar gaan oorbly. Hulle personeel is nie baie tegemoetkomend nie. Ons het Sondagaand na 'n vertoning gegaan en met ons terugkoms wou ander gaste graag 'n koppie koffie aankoop, maar die jong man aan diens wou nie die moeite doen nie. Hulle roem hul op "room service" met koffie op bestelling in die môre, maar die koffie was koud en toe ek vra vir suiker het ek dit nie gekry nie. Die TV-stel het net betaalkanale, soos Netflix en Amazon.

Great location but parking is a problem. Lovely, sunny rooms with wonderful views and very good accommodation and cuddly, comfortable beds. Close to all the attractions and restaurants.

One gets an absolute cosmopolitan (European) feeling. This was our second visit and we will definitely stay there again. Their staff is not very accommodating. We went to a show on Sunday night and when we came back other guests wanted to buy a cup of coffee, but the young man on duty didn't want to bother. They pride themselves on "room service" with coffee to order in the morning, but the coffee was cold and when I asked for sugar I didn't get it. The TV set only has pay channels, such as Netflix and Amazon.

Ons het een nag daar geslaap. Ons het die omgewing baie geniet en dit is 'n baie mooi gastehuis.

Die gastehuis is netjies en die mense is professioneel. Ons het twee klagtes: Dit is sleg dat 'n mens nie vir jouself koffie of tee kan maak in die kamer nie, dit behoort standaard te wees in gastehuisverblyf. Ons het geen warm water gehad om te stort in die oggend nie. Omdat ons haastig was om te gaan eet en te vertrek het ons dit nie gerapporteer nie, veral omdat ons net die een nag daar gebly het. Dit was wel 'n slegte ervaring.

We slept there one night. We really enjoyed the surroundings and it is a very nice guest house.

The guest house is neat and the people are professional. We have two complaints: It is bad that one cannot make coffee or tea for oneself in the room, this should be standard in guest house accommodation. We had no hot water to shower in the morning. Because we were in a hurry to eat and leave we didn't report it, especially since we only stayed there the one night. It was indeed a bad experience.

Great place.

Would suggest French press coffee in the rooms. While a coffee delivery to the room is OK, not having good quality coffee in the room is definitely a problem. Single-ply toilet paper at a 5-star place? Never seen that before [nor do I want to].

Hi Naomi,

That is correct, the rooms do not have any coffee-making facilities, however, we do offer complimentary tea or coffee brought up to your room in the mornings.

We look forward to seeing you soon again.

Ek het my 50ste verjaardag gevier in Kalkbaai en ek en 9 van my vriendinne het by die Chartfield Guesthouse oornag.

Ek sal beslis die Chartfield gastehuis aanbeveel. Ons het goeie diens gekry, als was netjies en skoon en oor die algemeen kon ek niks fout vind nie. Die enigste ding wat ek wel wil meld is dat ons kaggels in ons kamers gehad het, ons het kissies met dik houtstompe gekry, dis al. Geen dun hout, geen blitz, geen vuurhoutjies. Ons het baie laat teruggekom by die gastehuis nadat ons uit was vir ete, dit was koud en ons het verskriklik gesukkel om die kaggel aan die brand te kry. Die ander ongemak was dat ons 'n groep van 10 was, ek het geboek dat 2 persone in 'n kamer slaap. Ek het 5 standaardkamers geboek wat almal dieselfde veronderstel was om te wees sodat daar geen onderskeid onder die vrouens sal wees nie. Ek het egter 2 standaardkamers in die gastehuis self gekry, die ander een was baie ver buite om die hoek en dan het ek die familiekamer gekry met 2 kamers in en een badkamer vir 4 mense om te deel wat bietjie ongemaklik was. Dit was ook baie ver uitmekaar uit. As ek in die toekoms 5 standaardkamers boek, is dit presies wat ek wil hê en nie ander kamers wat glad nie lyk soos dit op die webtuiste lyk nie.

I celebrated my 50th birthday in Kalkbaai and 9 of my girlfriends and I spent the night at the Chartfield Guesthouse.

I would definitely recommend the Chartfield guest house. We got good service, everything was neat and clean and generally I couldn't find anything wrong. The only thing I would like to mention is that we had fireplaces in our rooms, we were given boxes with thick logs, that's all. No thin wood, no blitz, no matches. We got back to the guest house very late after going out for dinner, it was cold and we had a terrible time getting the fire going. The other inconvenience was that we were a group of 10, I booked for 2 persons to sleep in a room. I booked 5 standard rooms which were all supposed to be the same so that there will be no distinction among the women. However, I got 2 standard rooms in the guest house itself, the other one was very far outside around the corner and then I got the family room with 2 rooms in and one bathroom for 4 people to share which was a bit uncomfortable. It was also very far apart. If I book 5 standard rooms in the future, that's exactly what I want and not other rooms that don't look at all like they do on the website.

Dit was'n lekker kuier. Ek sal nie weer iemand bo my kop wil he wat 6:00 in die oggend op die houtvloer geraas maak nie. Die ontvangs van gastehuis was yskoud en deure wawyd oop al is daar 'n heerlike kaggel. Ek sou dink kaggel met sagte musiek sal ongelooflik goed vertoon. Die hout in die kamer was nat en daar was nie vuurhoutjies of vuuraanstekers nie, dit was onmoontlik om vuur te maak. Ek sal weer daar bly, maar dalk in somer en so kies dat ons nie gepla word deur boonste vloer se klanke nie.

Ek het nie van die idee gehou dat mens ekstra geld moet laat vir die opwas van skottelgoed nie.

It was a nice visit. I wouldn't want someone over my head making noise on the wooden floor at 6:00 in the morning again. The guest house reception was ice cold and doors wide open even though there is a lovely fireplace. I would think fireplace with soft music would show amazingly well. The wood in the room was wet and there were no matches or fire lighters, it was impossible to start a fire. I would stay there again, but maybe in summer and choose so that we are not bothered by upstairs sounds.

I didn't like the idea of leaving extra money for washing dishes.

Loved my stay. Thanks.

One small thing. I put the do not disturb sign up on Thursday morning because I was working, but when I left at 11:00 I swapped it to please make up the room. When I came back the room wasn't made up and didn't get made up that day. Whoever checked must have just assumed it was the same sign, so maybe just check. But it was not a huge deal. Overall my stay was fabulous and I'll be back.

Pragtige en gemaklike eenvoud.

Heerlik gebly op 'n reënerige Kaapse wintersaand. Vars beddegoed, gemaklike bed, mooi badkamer. Tafeltjie was baie gerieflik om wegneemete by te geniet. Net een klein dingetjie, 'n tweepunt plug vir foonherlaaiers sou gaaf gewees het, min mense reis daarmee saam. Ontbyt was absoluut lieflik, uitsig perfek. Sal definitief aanbeveel.

Loved the fact that everything in Kalk Bay is central to the guesthouse - you can walk everywhere. The complimentary cappuccino in the mornings is definitely a winner!

In die hartjie van Kalkbaai.

Gerieflik geleë in Kalkbaai is die pragtige gastehuis met asemrowende uitsig. Vriendelike personeel wat net nie genoeg kan doen vir sy gaste nie. Ruim met privaat badkamer. Kry nogal koffie in die bed! Stap net met die trappies af tot in die hoofstraat. Sterk aanbeveel.

Ons het die verblyf baie geniet. Die kamer was skoon en die personeel was vreeslik gasvry. Die ligging is ongelooflik en 'n stappie weg van al die winkeltjies en restaurante af. Die ontbyt was ook heerlik en die uitsig oor die see is regtig mooi. Sal aanbeveel.

Ons sal eerder elders bly volgende keer.

Geen parkering vir jou motor - dit staan buite in die straat sonder sekuriteit. Daar is 8 deure en hekke om oop en toe te sluit voor mens jou kamer bereik. Geen wonder hulle vra R1000 sleutel deposito. Hulle kan gerus DStv oorweeg. Die ontbyt is uitstekend.

No parking for your car - it's parked outside in the street without security. There are 8 doors and gates to open and close before reaching your room. No wonder they ask for a R1000 key deposit. They can easily consider DStv. The breakfast is excellent.

Dit is nie die geld werd wat ons betaal het nie

Vir daardie prys sou 'n mens ten minste 'n klein yskas, ketel en meer ruimte wou hê. Parkeerplek is 'n groot probleem. Die kamer was skoon en netjies, maar nie waarde vir geld nie.
