We just overnighted once in the lodge, the service was great, the breakfast was good, there are some parking bays for your car. The location is near to the sea and near to the city center. A good place to stay in Cape Town.

We stayed at Blackheath Lodge for 5 days and couldn't fault our stay. Anthony and his staff were so friendly and welcoming, making us feel at home straight away. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic with a wide variety of fresh fruits and freshly made goods (frittatas, french toast, muffins etc) made every morning, as well as a hot menu... More

These people are so nice and helpful. It is more like staying at a friends house. It is small and oh so doable. They even let you have the use of a phone just in case you have questions when you are out and about. They helped with everything from places to eat, tours and shopping. Rooms are homey and... More

I spent 6 nights at the One and Only for business and then moved to Blackheath Lodge for the final night of my stay in Cape Town. My room was beautifully decorated, clean and quiet with lovely toiletries and the most comfortable down-filled pillows! All of the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly, not to mention the resident Jack Russell... More

This is a difficult review to write, because it's a beautiful hotel and the staff are great, but we do however have a few negative things to say about it. Firstly, our room smelled very damp, especially in the cupboard area. The wall at the top of the bed was so dusty I felt compelled to wipe it down before... More

Excellent location and beautifully furnished property with charming, helpful staff. The room even came with it's own mobile phone so that we could call cabs when exploring the city, instead of risking hailing one on the side of the road. The food was delicious and the homely setting really did make for a peaceful retreat after long days exploring. I... More

What a wonderful place. Anthony did a superb job looking after us. Especially as I had left 2 dresses at the previous venue. No trouble at all for Anthony to suggest a taxi to collect them. Outstanding attention to detail throughout the property. Room had everything we needed. Particularly liked the international plug sockets. No need for adapters. So clean... More

We were lucky to have found availability at Blackheath lodge and stayed there for three days. After a long flight from the U.S. and a shaky drive from the airport, we were received with the warmest welcome by the team-Charle, Jean Claude, and little Coco. Every corner of the lodge was beautifully taken care of, and the pool area in... More

A real home away from home. All staff were welcoming, accommodating, polite, professional and lovely making you feel at home from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble for them. You felt like an special individual rather than just another guest. Its not hard to see how this lodge gets such amazing reviews. Can't recommend Blackheath Lodge highly... More
