This place has a great combination of comfort (good bed, GREAT shower), location (walking distance to the beach), and fantastic customer service. Breakfast was very good and offered an excellent variety and staff were always very helpful and smiling offering excellent ideas on day trips and dinner.

Lovely boutique hotel. Our room was very comfortable, and all the staff were both charming and helpful. Communal lounge where hot drinks available all day. Breakfasts were excellent! Highly recommended!

My daughter and I stayed here inJanuary and I returned in July with my husband and other daughter. It was like returning home! The same precious staff were there to greet me and provide... More

Reviews I read were 100 per cent accurate regarding Blackheath Lodge in Capetown. It was such a pleasure to stay there. We had a large spacious room which opened to communal lounge and kitchen for making hot drinks......we didn't use this as the main relaxing lounge by reception was the place to be. The tours we wanted to go on... More

My wife and I stayed for 10 days in June at this intimate B&B tucked away in a quiet but very accessible part of Cape Town. The rooms were spacious, immaculate and individual. The excellent breakfast was a fine start to each day. All of the staff were considerate, anticipated any need and made everyone feel valued and safe. This... More

The Blackheath Lodge was perfect for a single woman traveler who wanted to feel more like she was staying in someone's home than in a hotel. Anthony and his staff are marvelous--helpful, responsive and very gracious with an attention to detail that makes staying here special. They have suggestions for restaurants and activities. The breakfasts are delicious with hot and... More

After a long 20 hours of traveling, this was such a welcoming retreat. It is nestled on a quiet street with free parking for guests. The staff is so gracious and has excellent recommendations for sites to visit and restaurants to eat around town. This is not a large hotel, and the pool area is small, so it is perfect... More

I stayed at Blackheath Lodge with several other women at the end of May for 4 days. The Lodge was lovely---comfortable beds, terrific showers and the staff couldn't be more helpful or accommodating. The full breakfast each morning was fantastic, ranging from a full american breakfast to lovely fresh fruit and yogurt, minature quiches and wonderful pasteries . The bread... More
