We spontaneously found this place and for the price it just can't be beat. Mary, the manager, was so helpful and friendly-we fell in love with her. The rooms were spotless and comfortable and so close to the center of town as well as a short 10 minute walk to spectacular Pirate's Bay.

Pleasant welcome by the housekeeper. A short walk to the main area in the village. No far from a very private and scenic beach. Very intimate surroundings. Can go on long treks to areas of interest eg. Flag Staff Hill and Fort Campleton.
Seaville Chateau Charlotteville
Going to Tobago in Jan/Feb for 16 days (can't wait) - we have booked in to Bananaquit for the first few days and then plan on heading to Charlotteville (by bus - I love travelling on public transport abroad however long it takes!). I have exchanged a few e-mails with S Chateau but after sorting out my dates all emails ceased? Anyone heard of this place or been there. I guess I will try phoning. Want to stay somewhere cheap and clean and not up a steep hill! Thanks for any advice.
Just returned from 16 days in Tobago and spent 8 of them in Charlotteville - loved the place so much didn't want to leave. We stayed at the Seaville on Belle Air Road just by the track to Pirates Bay (whew!). The rooms are basic but cost only $25 per night and that includes a/c and fan and ensuite with a shared kitchen with the other top floor room. Kitchen had every facility- large fridge, cooker, microwave etc including a TV with a terrible picture (watched ODI Windies v SA cricket one morning whilst raining). The 2 top floor rooms are by far the best - you can use the long balcony and just sit and look at the rainforest sipping your rum - there is even an oblique sea view. I think that the Seaville is probably the only cheap guest house in Charlotteville to have a balcony. The ground floor rooms are very dark and would only suit someone who wanted a base - eg a diver who would be out all day. Our room was simply furnished but the door opened on to the lovely view - and Brenda who looks after the place is a bonus - she is a treasure! Would definitely therefore recommend the top floor rooms for those with simple tastes.
Charlotteville was the perfect place to chill out - Gails was our favourite restaurant - set menu was home-made veg soup then choice of meat or fish. The fish was always delicious! Tried all the others (Sharon and Phoeb's apparently take credit cards) but Gail's was the best TT45. Enjoy Charlotteville folks, we certainly did.
