About Chambery

Chambery is situated in Upper Kenilworth in a lush tranquil garden where birdsong abounds. We offer luxury accommodation in our two guest cottages, which are sumptuously decorated, and it is conveniently situated for both business and holiday travelers. The area itself is in a very quiet “pocket” in Kenilworth where little traffic noise is experienced.

Chambery has a country feel yet is only minutes away from major shopping centres, Newlands Cricket and Rugby stadiums and 15 minutes from Green Point Stadium, the city centre and beaches. It has easy access to the peninsula's tourist attractions and the many golf courses.


The two beautifully appointed guest cottages are totally private in the large grounds. Each has an individual private area in the garden to sit and relax and unwind. A substantial "continental" breakfast is served either in the main house dining room or in each individual cottage. The cottages are also let out on a self-catering basis. There is a large salt water swimming pool and patio exclusively for guests' use. One cottage is wheelchair friendly.
