Black health lodge was the best hotel/bed and breakfast accommodation I have ever been to. The owners are great, the homemade breakfast is delicious and the room and the common rooms are beautiful and comfortable. They even give you a cell phone to carry incase you get lost. I would not stay anywhere else if I go back to Cape... More

Antony, one of the owners, was always present and helpful in every way. I have three regrets, not being able to stay longer, not seeing some of the... More

We spent an amazing 4 nights at the Blackheath Lodge, Anthony and his team made us feel so welcome. The hotel and rooms are beautiful and there is an incredible attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble from advice on where to eat to borrowing a blanket for a summer concert. All the staff were so friendly and the... More

They say South Africa has produced some of the largest diamonds, well yes but none as big as this boutique hotel. From the moment you enter nothing is too much trouble, the food quality is exceptional, the rooms amazing, and the friendliness unbeatable. The recommended restaurants lived up the hype, and the convertible mini available is a must with the... More

Blackheath Lodge is layered with fabulous design and South African art. There are many interesting spaces to sit with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Every part of the lodge is immaculate and the attention to detail outstanding. There is a mini ipad in each room, as well as a local cell phone for use while in... More

We returned to Cape Town after a gap of 8 years with much anticipation and booked Blackheath Lodge for the start of our Garden Route tour because reviews had been so positive. From the very warm welcome from Charlene and the staff to the lovely farewell on our departure, our stay was truly memorable. No place is perfect and little... More

The Blackheath is one of those places that is truly a home away from home.....with many more amenities--helpful and friendly staff, great and quiet location, warm and welcoming, beautiful rooms, delicious breakfasts. Antony, John, and Joffrey (sp?) anticipated every need. They were so pleasant and helpful, we asked Antony if he enjoyed his job as much as it seemed like... More
