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.


Beautiful room in a stunning building.

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.

The History

The Inn at Castle hill was built by Scots grain merchant Alex Calder in 1917 and it is most probably one of the most historic sites in this area. It remained in the family untill 1953 and was then renamed, by the new owners, to Sea Breeze Hotel up to the year of 1969. It was then converted to a nursing home called the Susan Chandler Home untill 1989. It was then bought by Carol and Ray Duff who restored the building to its former glory as a guesthouse. In August 2000, Judy Anderson bought and renovated it. It is now owned by Rick and Sue Melvill.
