About Castle Hill Guesthouse

Castle Hill Guesthouse is a 4 Star graded characterful Edwardian villa overlooking the quaint fishing village of Kalk Bay. The beautiful ceilings and lattice veranda gives this building the charm and warmth that would make you feel at home. Features include a cosy sun room for reading and relaxing that leads to the lounge with a TV, while the terrace is perfect for soaking up the summer rays.

The individually decorated bedrooms open onto a latticed veranda affording spectacular views of False Bay, with the Hottentots Holland Mountains as the backdrop. Morning tea and coffee-making facilities are provided in every room, as well as bottled water and wine.

The historic Fisherman's Village of Kalk Bay offers a variety of antique, boutique and craft shops that line the cobbled lanes of Main Road. With Silvermine Mountain as the backdrop and the harbour with the fishing boats lining the horizon, Kalk Bay is one of the most spectacular spots on the Southern Peninsula. Excellent restaurants and bars provide a wonderful choice in guests' culinary experience, with Harbour House and the Brass Bell being among some of the favourites.

From June until mid-October, whales visit the bay and can be viewed from the guests house veranda, while South Africa’s only shore-based colony of African penguins can be visited at Boulders Beach in the naval port of Simons Town, just 20 minutes away.

Beach: Located within walking distance from the beach.

We took a quick mid-week break and stayed for two nights. We had a wonderful stay - Helpful staff - great setting.The Accommodation  was neat and clean -  considering the Building is almost a 100 years old.Close to the station for quick scenic hops Into Cape Town (I still had to go to work) and to the other local towns (St James and Simonstown)Could see the Dolphins play in the sea - just great.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The only detraction would be the noise of the wooden floors. Next time we'll request a room upstairs and away from the stairs and main entrance.

Castle Hill has a fantastic location in Kalk Bay, right near the hub of activity, but far enough away to get some peace and quiet. Although we were a rowdy, dirty bunch of boys on a bachelor weekend, Madelein the manager was more than accommodating to us, even though we managed to dirty just about every surface in the house. I would highly recommend staying at Castle Hill to anyone looking for a nice get weekend getaway.

It was just a quick getaway out of cape town for 2 days. We really enjoyed the little town and the guesthouse was just wonderful. Clean,well kept and the service was excellent. Everything is in walking distance.
