It was an absolutely outstanding experience at Blackheath Lodge - friendly staff members - willing to go the extra mile for someone. The breakfasts were amazing and the setting wass decadent yet homely.

This is an exceptional place with unparalled attention to detail (and to correct an earlier entry, there are tv's in all the rooms). This was our first time in Cape Town and rest assured we will be choosing Blackheath Lodge again. Just stay here and see!

Blackheath Lodge was my first of several bed and breakfasts that I stayed at while on a trip of a lifetime to South Africa, and it proved to be my favorite. Antony and his staff were extremely warm and welcoming from the very beginning, even though I had severe jet lag coming from 36 hours of travel. The layout of... More

We had an amazing stay. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Facilities were excellent. I had a different breakfast each morning and all was delicious. The highlight was sitting around the pool for a drink one balmy evening and then having a swim in the gorgeous heated pool. Great local knowledge proved invaluable as tourists. So close to the...

Spent our first 4 nights at the Blackhealth Lodge. It was our favorite out of 6 B & B's while we were in South Africa. Antony was wonderful accommodation us and recommending great restaurants to us in the area. John Claude was the best and very helpful to even making a light breakfast the morning of a early flight.

Blackheath Lodge is quite, comfortable and welcoming. The owners and staff provide a personal touch and are extremely helpful and friendly, with great tips on restaurants, things to do and see and how best to get there. It would be difficult to fault the service. The lodge is well located. A stroll to the foreshore or short taxi ride to... More

We found the guesthouse very cozy with a relaxed atmosphere fitting right into Capetown's mood. It was a pleasure staying there, especially with the friendly staff there to assist us. Its strategically located, very close to the Waterfront, the beach and many restuarants are just a walking distance away. Loved the feeling of being home away from home and the... More

Me, my husband and my parents stayed at Blackheath Lodge for three nights in March and we were all very pleased! The garden is a beautiful oasis with flowers and a heated, clean pool. The building itself is somewhat in a colonial style, beautiful scenery from the veranda were breakfast is served. We were all very pleased with breakfast as... More
