TripAdvisor No. 1 of 5 B&B/Inns
A surprising dearth of B&B options in this popular village makes the high standard here all the more commendable – not only the best B&B in Kalk Bay, but one of my top picks in Cape Town. Shireen and Florian Blöchliger carved 16 en-suite rooms out of this double-storey home, keeping much of the original turn-of-the-century character and furnishing it in simple, comfortable pieces (a mix of vintage and Weylandts) and well-chosen art. It’s a testament to Florian’s long-standing hospitality skills that this excellent-value B&B feels like a little hotel, with extra details such as complimentary tea and coffee served in bed, a generous pool with adequate loungers, great breakfasts and young, efficient staff. ROOM TIP Best is the loft room, followed by the deluxe rooms 4, 5 and 11. Of the standards (no sea views), number 9 is a top choice followed by 10 (taken together, 10 and 11 make a great family unit). It’s a house, so be aware that if you end up with a room in the passages it can be a bit noisy. COST Standard room from R700, deluxe from R890, loft from R990 (all sleep two).
