We wanted to spend the last 2 days of our very busy honeymoon relaxing in the quaint little fishing village of Kalk bay. After conducting much research ( on trip advisor :-) ) we booked at the St James and what a great decision that was! Everything from the staff, to the service, to the amenities, to the location ,...

This place is more akin to a grand home of some distant relatives rather than a transient stopover site. There are just a handful of well appointed and comfortable of rooms, lots of nooks and crannies, armchairs galore...in which to lose yourself and indulge. The swimming pool is a respectable size as is the decking area with ultra comfortable sun...

We stayed 5 nights in the Findlay. Very quiet and local area of Kalk bay spoilt by beggars on streets and parking security attendants asking for car security money. The night shelter in Kalk should be moved to allow safe tourism. The manor staff were fine when around but the evening barman was more interested in TV sport watching and...

Owned by Rovos Rail this guesthouse is a wonderful way to extend the train experience. Located between Muizenberg and Kalk Bay this stately guest house is pure luxury. We stayed in the Vancouver suite which had uninterrupted views of False Bay where we spotted whales close to shore. The suite was very spacious with a separate lounge area full dressing...

Amazing winter special; a fraction of usual rate. Huge 70 sq m suite with lovely veranda overlooking the sea. Very friendly staff. The entire place has an amazing ambiance. Was very quiet with few guests, but this is also great in a way as then one can really relax. Walking distance to hippie chic Kalk Bay. Not long drive from...

Impressive looking Manor House with traditional furniture. Rooms are well appointed and provide everything that you need apart from essential items like a telephone. Our room also lacked an information folder which was eventually provided by the manager at the end of our stay. Our original room was unsuitable for our needs so fortunately we were moved to a ground...
