This was our second visit to Blackheath Lodge. Following a recommendation from a work colleague/friend we stayed here in January 2008 and had a fantastic holiday. Eager to return we have just spent a nearly three weeks at Blackheath Lodge over New Year – and what a fantastic time we have had again. We met many returning guests and were... More

I have now been fortunate to have been a guest at Blackheath Lodge three times. When in Capetown, it is the only place I wish to be. From the warm greeting upon arrival, to the pleasant lounging areas and friendly comfortable rooms, the amazing breakfasts, and the friendly efficient staff, a stay here is pure pleasure. The staff is always... More

I recently spent a week at Blackheath Lodge and was hugely impressed by the sheer ambience of it all! The owners Antony & John go 10 extra miles to make one feel " at home from home " ! Their vast knowledge of restuarants, places of interest and things to do are exceptional. The treat of the day is the... More

Antony, John and thier remarkable team have superb contacts and knowledge of Cape Town and South Africa. They offer honest and clear advice to guests which enables them to have a highly... More

All that is said about Blackheath Lodge on Trip Advisor is true. What wonderful hosts Antony and John are. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fabulous. 300mts from the sea, you would need a car for sightseeing but taxis/ tours are arranged by Antony at any time of the day. We travelled from Johannesberg by car and Antony was... More

We booked our stay with Blackheath Lodge because of the excellent reviews it had on trip advisor and we were certainly not disappointed! Anthony and John were great from the start, helping us with bookings for our stay throughout South Africa, for both accommodation, travel and restaurants. It took the guess work and stress out of the holiday and made... More

A peaceful setting with well appointed and spotless rooms and splendid breakfasts. Real attention to detail from our hosts who made us feel very welcome and at home. They have a wide knowledge of Cape Town and recommended some first rate restaurants. I would have no hesitation in recommending them and would definitely stay there again whenever possible. The staff... More

I have now stayed at Blackheath Lodge on three occasions when I have been in Cape Town; on each of these the accommodation, service, support and facilities have been superb. I am in complete agreement with the positive reviews posted here, and, to be honest, mystified by the very few negative postings. In my personal experience the management and staff... More

Blackheath Lodge is one of the best places to stay in Capetown, when you look for a nice oasis in Seapoint. Arriving at Blackheath Lodge means arriving at home or even at a friends place, as the two chefs Antony and John are just awesome and very caring! Both know their business very well and are always up to date... More

I was recommended Blackheath Lodge by a friend from New York and he was absolutely spot on. It's a charming house and grounds but the real charmers are Antony and John who own and run the house. They have fabulous knowledge, great enthusiasm and a stack of contacts to make your trip to Cape Town memorable and fun-packed. My only... More
