On arrival at Chillifields the first thing that strikes you is the tranquility of the place, surrounded by lush green lawn and colorful flowers. It is nestled on a hillside on a 10-acre farm overlooking the beautiful Assagay Valley.

Unfortunately I was robbed overnight Thursday 1 September 2022 while I was asleep in my room. Robbers achieved access through front door; thank God I was asleep throughout. Guest house owner's insurance does not cover guests and owner didn't follow through on a promised nominal compensation payment. Neither did he refund the days I didn't stay, because I moved out right away. The battery of a rental car of another guest also stolen same night. All this despite so-called security guard on duty. How is this possible?

We have stayed there regularly as my daughter has to visit Hillcrest Private Hospital every 6 months. Accommodation is basic but perfectly adequate. Breakfast wholesome. All in all good value for money

The accommodation comprises four nice room/suites in a lovely location. We experienced a couple of small niggles with our rooms, but these were dealt with by the staff acceptably well. Breakfasts were basic but satisfactory.

Only stayed one night and had to leave before breakfast. The accommodation is adequate, the rooms are very close together and the sound proofing not great. I could hear the dude in the room next door snoring and other sounds which was not great. Rooms have a fridge and tea coffee making facilities but no milk or milk powder provided. Linen felt a bit dated.

This venue offers a convenient location with attractive rural views. The accommodation is purpose built, with en suite rooms fronted by a roofed verandah opening onto lawns. Our arrival around 4-30pm was underwhelming. After waiting outside the locked reception door for some 10 minutes, a maid arrived and was almost resentful and surly in her hand over of the key and room. She was uncommunicative and provided precious little info on room facilities or provision of breakfast (the rooms are sold on a bed only basis). Rolling Eskom blackouts were in progress but there was no information provided either by the maid or in the tatty room folder. The room itself was clean, spacious and attractively furnished with a kithenette offering a fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and crockery/cutlery for two guests. Sadly the fridge was barren with neither an ice tray, water or fresh milk to use with the tea and coffee. There was no aircon and the pedestal fan proved insufficient for the heat in the room. There is no wi-fi facility. Mark you, the price point for the room was competitive for a 3 star establishment so I guess the room and facilities were fit for the price. The owner/manager remained distant responding to telephone calls but making no effort to relate to guests. Friendlier was the resident bull frog who attempted to drown out traffic noise from the nearby arterial road with voracious croaking throughout the evening. Traffic noise receded between 11pm and 5 am. We opted not to take breakfast so cannot comment on the provision or cost. We do not believe the venue lived up to the generous reviews on TA and we are unlikely to return.

This is one of the better B&Bs I have been to. The setting and gardens were absolutely stunning, the Room was very spacious, with all the trimmings and even some welcoming Sherry. The Breakfasts were very good and not over done. Security was the order of the day. One night I forgot to switch off the alarm and in no time, security were checking up on me. I say well done. The Staff were very pleasant and helpful. This B&B was well worth it.

The best B&B I have stayed in. Beautifully appointed room set in gorgeous park like garden. Very comfortable bed with the luxury of electric blanket. Welcome glass of sherry. Well appointed kitchen. Friendly staff and large enough breakfast to see you through the day.

What a lovely area but totally spoilt by the standard of cleanliness- the brown laminated floor has a grey tinge from mopping the dirt around, cobwebs and gecko poop coming down the walls- it's actually quite disgusting. Dining room chairs have marks on them, dusty windows, dirty skirt boards- gosh if you're into hygiene this is not the place for you.

Response from GrantH65, Owner at Chillifields B & B
Responded 09 Nov 2015
Dear Angela Thank you for your review; it did come as somewhat of a shock to me. I inspected the cottage you stayed in this morning and did not find it to be "Filthy Dirty". There was however some dust on the window frames and one small mark on one of the dining room chairs which I have bought to my house keeping staffs attention. I have gone back through the other 16 reviews we have had at Chillifields and was not surprised to see that we have scored very highly on our cleanliness. 11 of our past guest have given us a 5 out of 5 for cleanliness, 3 have commented in their reviews that the rooms were clean and 2 did not make any comment regarding cleanliness. Seems strange that you have been the only person to find our establishment, to quote "Disgusting" and "Filthy Dirty". I can only apologise to you that you found Chillifields not up to your extremely high standards. Regards Grant
