I stayed at the blackheath lodge for 5 nights and it was great. The room was nice and comforting, and pretty big! It had a TV and DVD player. They offered a large selection of DVDs to watch. I did have one problem with my bathroom, the drain was clogged but it was fixed immediately. The breakfast was delicious, fresh... More

I chose Blackheath Lodge over 2 years ago based on the look of the place on their own website and the exceptional reviews they received on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and valued by all the Staff. Antony,John and the Team manage to combine professional expertise with warmth and...

Well, we fell in love with this place. We were on our honeymoon and can honestly say that the hotel, staff, location, food, made our holiday. Thank you so so much everyone there. This hotel is in a great location to explore cape town, and it is in a safe area. We walked to several areas and felt very safe.... More

Impossible to give anything but an excellent rating. No need to say more, just read the other reviews. Rooms perfect,all the staff are wonderful just can't do enough for you. Breakfasts so much choice. Seapoint is a stroll away -much improved since we were last there 5 years ago. No safety problems and a great range of bistros and restaurants

our stay in December was an enjoyable experience and in particular the services and breakfast were very good. The product selection and presentation for breakfast were excellent although I did not like the constant kitchen smell wafting through the breakfast room. I sat next to the kitchen window for breakfast, 2 meters away from the cook.......

We stayed in Cape Town in March 2014 & couldn't wait to go back - mainly because of Blackheath Lodge. So booked a 2 week break for January 2015. Not many places are as good as you remember 2nd time around. Blackheath Lodge bucks that trend, it was better. Anthony & John have extended, the new rooms are delightful &... More
