Loved my room that occupied the whole front veranda (think it’s #4) allowing expansive water views and has a tv seating area, table for eating, and screened off bed. It was wonderful. So relaxing to sit on the veranda on the comfy sofa and read/relax. Saw some of the other rooms and they’re all beautifully furnished, but the front room was really gorgeous. There’s a great communal kitchen and additional TV room. Parking is on the street so it was busy over the weekend but so much is walking distance. Highly recommended.

Exceptionally large and comfortable room. Everything beautifully furnished, lovely large house. No breakfast, but could self-cater as kitchen is large and very well-equipped. We had our breakfast at a hotel just up the road, and were very pleased with the food. The views over the sea from Castle Inn are excellent. A lovely place to stay.

Fantastic views from the balcony. Clean and comfortable rooms. The staff made a reservation for breakfast and gave us great advice on activities in Kalk bay which was very appreciated since the weather didn't turn out to be the best.

The room was large with high ceilings and all the usual amenities, the bed was huge and very comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious and very clean. The furniture and decoration was perfect for the building.

We stayed in the suite which is a very large spacious and comfortable room with direct access to the front sea facing balcony. The only issue I had with that is that the other guests had access to the balcony too. Some were very inconsiderate, talking loudly, disturbing us. The balcony wraps right around the front and side. If there was a trellis put up to give some privacy it would be perfect. Guests in other rooms would still have the views.
The lighting in the bathroom could be improved and a place to unpack ones toiletries is needed. Caroline organised a little table for the purpose.
The very bright light from the passage and stairwell was left on all night which disturbed my sleep. I suggest a sensor to switch it on and off as needed.
Also, when one returns at night, it’s rather dark at the gate and difficult to negotiate the key into the lock! Again a light with sensor would be ideal. Also for security purposes.

Having said that, I would definitely return and recommend this guest house to anyone wanting to explore Kalk Bay and surroundings.
