Welcome to Chartwell Castle

On the outskirts of Greater Johannesburg ± 30 minutes from the old city Centre and on the Klein Jukskei River, stands this prominent four-storied Castle on 5 Ha (12 acres), providing accommodation for a maximum of 13 people sharing. The main building is of late 17th Century architectural style.

Chartwell Castle

We are located in tranquil Chartwell West, yet close to the main roads, shopping malls (Fourways Mall, Fourways Crossing, Broadacres Lifestyle Centre, Cedar Square), Montecasino, Lanseria Airport, and Fourways Life Hospital. We are within driving distance from O. R. Tambo International Airport.

Our guest house is very spacious and peaceful, with a beautiful garden and swimming pool. We have the biggest known uninterrupted hedgerow maze in the Southern world (and the third biggest in the world), boasting more than 900 conifers. It covers about 6000 sq.m. (approximately 1.5 acres), which is roughly 5 times bigger than The Hampton Court Maze. We have five suites with private bathrooms and under-floor heating, sleeping a total of 13 guests.

Breakfast is served between 06h30 and 10h00 but if you wish to eat earlier, please let us know.
We wish you a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.


The quiet seclusion and beautiful gardens. It’s almost unbelievable that the biggest city in SA is just outside the hedges.

I would just like to say thanks to all at Chartwell Castle. We stayed there for the Swanepoel wedding yesterday and everything was amazing. Stunning venue and great staff! Special thanks to Kevin for sorting us out with anything we needed. Will definitely recommend to others!

Driving in I thought that this place looks nice but when we met the staff I realize what is nice. Friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to a bigger and better room at no additional cost seeing that it was Easter weekend and they did not have many guests. Then the exploring of the grounds happened, so peaceful the gardens. You can really recharge and a Castle away from home.

The Castle has a lot of charm and character. The rooms are excellent. The grounds are peaceful and relaxing. Kevin and his team are excellent hosts with exceptional service. We had a magical time!

We went to the castle for a night, to escape the rat race without needing to drive too far. It was lovely! Tamara was very welcoming and dinner was delicious, as was breakfast! We were 15 minutes from home, but felt like we were in another world! We hope to be back!

We stayed at the Castle during the night of the 4th and the 5th of April, and loved it. Just too short!

It was a wonderful stay. The hospitality was amazing. What an experience. I’ll recommend Chartwell Castle to anyone who wants to take a break from home, but doesn’t want to travel too far, and at a very reasonable price.
