Our 25 year old daughter discovered Blackheath Lodge through its outstanding reviews and we booked a stay even though we were a little nervous that it might be too small to offer the range of information and services that a larger hotel would available. We stayed for a week and it was perfect. The lodge is intimate, warm, welcoming, and... More

I just spent 3 nights at Blackheath and already miss the comfortable accommodations and exceptionally kind staff! Someone was always around to help with a dinner reservation, book an excursion, or field general questions about Cape Town. The setting here is quiet and relaxed. Cookies and tea/coffee are always out and complementary, not to mention there are several jars of... More

This is a wonderful small hotel, centrally located to the downtown and the seaport, with good-sized rooms, great hosts, full service concierge, and very good prices. The rooms, dining room, sitting room, and other public rooms are whimsically and attractively decorated. The breakfast service is excellent. And the afternoon tea or wine in the lounges is equally so. A great... More

This was our first time staying in a guest house rather than a hotel and without doubt a good decision! From the off, we knew it was right for us. Extremely clean, impeccable furnishings, not overly fussy and just charming. Complete comfort, without ostentatious frills. Breakfast on the charming conservatory/terrace was divine, home cooked pastries, fresh fruits and full cooked... More

This is a great find in Cape Town! Cozy rooms, comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast served on white linen tablecloths. The service you will receive from Antony, Charle, Jean Claude and Peter are second to none! I hope to return to Cape Town one day and have a longer stay at the Blackheath Lodge.

What a wonderful place to stay! This hotel is in a very accessible location in the centre of Cape Town with very easy access to the V & A waterfront. We were greeted with friendly faces and a welcome drink by the pool which was much appreciated. There was a welcome pack on our bed with maps and brochures of... More

Just spent six wonderful nights at the Blackheath Lodge. We stayed in the Loft suite which had a very comfy Queen/King bed as well as two single beds. The main bedroom area had glass doors that folded completely to allow a great view of the ocean as well as access to the large deck. Overall staff was extrmely attentive and... More

We loved staying here. The location is very convenient, plenty of restaurants within walking distance and the bus on the Esplanade. The breakfast was "to die for" and the staff absolutely wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable, the attention to detail is faultless. Thankyou Anthony and John and Charle.

We enjoyed every second in Cape Town on our "Holimoon" especially staying at the "Blackheath Lodge". Anthony and John made us feel very welcome and we ate at the best restaurants for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was fantastic at the lodge 🍴 - We had the loft room with a wonderful view, large balcony with sofa shower and a sea/table... More

Our second visit to Blackheath is just as perfect as our first. Great location, wonderful staff, you couldn't wish for more. Excellent rooms, cry relaxed atmosphere, wonderfully comfy beds and great restaurant recommendations and bookings from Charle. Thanks again, hope to come back soon
