Reviewed yesterday NEW

Booked here for 4 nights over Easter to come run the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon. The location and views are great. The rooms are nice and spacious, and the coffee brought to the rooms are a welcoming touch. Unfortunately the unaccommodating staff was a real let down and the amenities for this highly rated Guest House was disappointing. No coffee/tea...

The Charthouse at Kalk Bay is a great place to stay for all tourists, surfers and hikers. The comfortable rooms are just pretty and the service is outstanding. The beds are very nice to get rid of travel pain.The attitude of the Team is obliging and you receive a smile at every occasion. Even minor changes are picked up immediately....

A delicious breakfast was served in the garden by friendly, accommading staff and nothing was too much trouble. The attention do detail at Chartfield is second to none from the excellent cleanliness throughout...

I was surprised with an unexpected bill upon departure, unfortunately I had to suffer for their mistake. I've planned to return, but after all this I'm taking them off my preference holiday guest houses. I'm going back to Kalk Bay in December because I love the area, booking elsewhere.
