The location is excellent - central and easy to get anywhere from there, as well as having good restaurants and a Spar within walking distance. The rooms are clean and well maintained and have everything you need. There is also a nice lounge and fully furbished kitchen on the property if you want to self cater. Staff are very friendly. Will definately stay here again.
Parking is on the street. We had booked at the Charles in a superior room, but were actually placed in the nearby de Waterkant House - here the rooms are not quite as big. I wouldn't go for the superior room again as the normal rooms are just as good, no need to spend the extra price.
We loved the location. The property was excellent and surpassed our expectations.
The person running the front desk was not very friendly and welcoming. However, every other member of staff we met were fantastic.
I did not stay there but one of Our Directors did, he found it peaceful and relaxing.
The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The facilities in the room are well thought out and you can see thought has gone into the room layout. The deck areas are amazing with great views over the city and harbour. Breakfast is also of a very high standard. From this guesthouse, you have easy access to major freeways and the waterfront as well as restaurants nearby
