Wonderful guest lodge, welcoming helpful and knowledgeable staff, rooms are beautifully appointed, beds are super comfortable, wonderful whimsical touches throughout the space. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious. This must be the best small hotel/guest lodge in Cape Town. Go!

The Blackheath Lodge was wonderful and excelled on all fronts. We stayed for two nights at the beginning of our honeymoon in South Africa. We arrived very late in the evening after a long haul international flight and were greeted with a drink and a cozy fire before settling into our room. All the finishes were spot on in the... More

My mom and I stayed here for a couple of days to see Cape Town before we continued on to Muizenberg for our volunteer work. Our stay was absolutely incredible! Antony and John (the owners of Blackheath Lodge) were absolutely wonderful hosts. They made us feel like we were visiting good friends and were there for our every need. The... More

Blackheath Lodge has become our second home!Not only were we treated like family but We're made to feel very special.The accommodations are lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was a treat,especially the champagne served on the morning of our 40th. Anniversary. We were helped with further travel arrangements and dining reservations. In short....we loved it and highly recommend it. Exceptional!!

I can not say enough good things about Blackheath Lodge. Every single detail was taken care of. They helped with so many things that are not things they should help with. Above all, they are very kind and thoughtful people. Additionally, the property is beautiful. The rooms and common areas have a very cozy feel. The property is also in... More

I stumbled across Black Heath Lodge (BHL) on Trip Advisor whilst searching for somewhere to stay in Cape Town. I don't want to repeat what has already been said in all the amazing reviews but also feeling the need to express how impressive this place really is. From the minute you arrive at BHL you feel at home. Each room... More

We stayed here after a friend's recommendation, as well as reading reviews. This accommodation is excellent in every way. Room clean and spacious. Breakfasts were excellent. But the best part is the attention to detail - the advice given on everything from restaurants to what to do was spot on. The staff here go out of their way to make... More

stayed there with friends november 2014. The apartment and the rooms were very nice, roomy and spotless - so was the intire area - from pool to breakfast and bar area. The lodge is very small, and Anthony and his staff (and littel new dog :-)) made us fell like a part of the "Family" .. Everything Works perfekt -... More
