We found the Castle Hill Guest House to be lovely in every way. From the views on the verandah to the old world charm of the bedrooms. It is within walking distance from everything...restaurants, shops, theatre, train station and the beach. The staff go above and beyond to help with any query. We really couldn't have enjoyed it more!

The stay was pleasant and the location is excellent. The receptionist/manager was pleasant and helpful. The room was big. The duvet was too hot for summer and we had to ask for a summer duvet. The pillows were not of good quality. In general, the accommodation was good value for money, but the guest house is in need of an...

We were very warmly welcomed to the guesthouse and given a tour. Our room was very spacious and although the en suite was a little dated, I had thought it fit in with the feel of the room very nicely. There are not TVs in the rooms which was very refreshing. Although there is a to lounge downstairs and plenty...

We booked these rooms a month or two before our stay. The Location is perfect for walking distance by a few minutes to the beach, cafes and restaurants. We had rooms which did not have en suite as the rest of them were booked already. Our rooms did not have fans or aircons therefore hot and uncomfortable at night. However...

The Inn at Castle Hill is perfectly located in Kalk Bay. Walking distance to amazing bakery (Olympia) and other Cafés and Restaurants (Harbour House). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The house is wonderfully maintained.

Although the location was very good, I was really dissapointed in some of the aspects that one take for granted when staying in a guesthouse/B&B. There was no secure parking - parking is in the street (if you can find some). The room (although it had a seaview) did not have an en-suite bathroom. It had an allocated bathroom down...

Thank you for taking the time to point out some issues you had, I would just like to respond on the following: Parking is secure- a Guard patrols the street from 8pm. Rooms descriptions are clear- one knows when booking that the room was not en-suite Beds are moved away when a Twin is requested- the rest of the time...

We had an amazing few days in Kalk Bay and spend all 6 nights at the Inn at Castle Hill. The guest house is great value for money with stunning views and a very friendly host, Madelein. The guest house is perfectly situated in the heart of Kalk Bay with easy access to pretty much the entire town.

This was my second stay here and again I just loved it, was lucky enough to get a room with the bathroom inside the room, and just incredible views from the wide veranda. The guesthouse has such a great, relaxed and warm atmosphere, the beds are super comfy and the location is just perfect. Always friendly, smiling and welcoming service.

The bathroom and TOALET ARE OUTSIDE OF YOUR ROOM - it is VERY unconvenient. The price per night €75 is a very high ! the price must be maximum 40 €. there is no safe parking for the car. When you arrive at the guest house after 6 PM there's nobody in the reception

Good Morning Pio, Thank you for your review. Our descriptions clearly state that the Two Standard Rooms that we have has a private bathroom across the hallway and guests are liable for reading the descriptions. The high season in Kalk Bay a very sought after period and all accommodation is expensive this time of the year. I am not sure...
