About Chartwell Guest House

Overlooking the Indian Ocean, Chartwell Guest House offers luxurious accommodation in a previously restored art gallery. The upscale La Lucia Mall is within a five-minute drive.

Beautifully decorated suites are fully furnished. They enjoy private entrances and a combination of garden, sea, and pool views. Some rooms have their own patio overlooking the garden, with all rooms boasting top-quality percale bed linen and towels.

Guests can take advantage of the secure on-site parking and complimentary Wi-Fi. A laundry service is available, and those who need to de-stress after a long day, can cool down in the refreshing outdoor pool.

Meals at Chartwell Guest House can be arranged upon request. A barbecue area is set up outdoors, where visitors can cook over an open fire, with tea-and-coffee-making facilities available all day.

The Africa Art Gallery is less than ten minutes away by car. One of the many well-known tourist attractions in the area, Umhlanga Lighthouse, is two kilometres away.

Positive Reviews

Warm and welcoming staff

There's nothing better than feeling so welcome after a long journey. Guests feel instantly comfortable upon arrival at the guesthouse, and notice that, although the staff are really forthcoming, they are not overbearing, and willing to provide plenty of privacy if necessary.

Homely vibe, relaxing atmosphere

This guesthouse resembles a genuine home-away-from-home. The crisp and luxurious percale bedding, the good quality towels, and laid-back vibe goes a long way to ensure that guests enjoy a well-deserved break from everyday life. They also comment on the tasteful furnishings, and appreciate the lovely comfortable beds too.

Useful amenities

Just about everything that's needed for a wonderful stay is either included on site, or it's in the vicinity. The beach location is awesome, and those who like shopping find the number of strategically placed shopping centres suits their needs perfectly. Those who prefer to spend their time on site love that they can relax at the pool, or just enjoy the sound of chirping birds in the garden.

Negative Reviews

It may get noisy

The staff start rather early in the morning, and guests say it sometimes happens that there's a bit of hustle and bustle before it tends to quietens down. They think the staff should keep it on the low-down for a bit, at least until breakfast time.
