This was my 3rd stay at Blackheath Lodge, and every time it gets harder to leave. This place really is the home away from home you want to have in Cape Town. Everything from the rooms (amazing little touches!), the owners, the staff, the breakfasts, and now Coco make this the perfect place to base yourself while exploring the Western... More

Just got back to Botswana from the Lodge , everything you read in the reviews is all true.Impeccable service, friendly staff and management who are at your beck and call any hour of the day/night. No request is too small or big, they go above and beyond. I have stayed in most upmarket hotels within Cape Town, but nothing beats... More

This hotel is truly unique and the staff are incredibly dedicated. Our room was immaculate! It was if we were the first guests to have ever stayed in the room. There was not one scratch or stain in sight! We found the rest of the hotel just as amazing as our room. The attention to detail was outstanding. The highlight... More

I stayed at the Blackheath Lodge for a few days back in January and knew I had to come back during my bigger annual holiday this December. We booked a few nights at the beginning of a big trip to the Western Cape and knew that it would be a great place to be based in Cape Town. The airport... More

Best place to stay when you visit Cape Town. We came here 5 years ago and already then we were impressed with the warmth and hospitality and the superb breakfast ( best we had in South Africa !) Came back and the Lodge has improved... More luxury rooms and most of the rooms have a balcony, terrace or patio. They... More

If you want personal and friendly service in relaxing surrounds then Blackheath is for you! Antony is an amazing host and every request was either anticipated or accommodated including arranging a quick trip to the hairdresser for me during one of Cape Town's infamous blackouts and booking a table at the very busy Duchess with 15 minutes notification. All of... More

We had a short, but very nice, stay at Blackheath. Wonderful and friendly staff. Easy walk to the ocean side, and about 45 minute walk (or quick cab ride) to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, where there is a massive mall and many, many restaurants. We know that the neighborhood was so quiet because we were in room #1. It... More
