“Home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Recommended to us by neighbours who had been there a year before. First visit too South Africa. When asked for a booking they did everything to make it possible as they were very full (5 night stay was planned) first night at a good neighbours guest house, then the 4 nights in 3 different rooms. Sounds like a lot of work but staff did everything so we saw a lot of bedroom accomadation wich was all good. (garden room smaller) The staff was very friendly and helpfull, nothing too much trouble, Antony and Michelle's advice as too restuarents and sight seeing were great too. Lots of guest houses are good but the warmth and kindness of the staff makes this a special place. If you leave a tip its good to know it goes towards the education of the staffs children. We will definately use Blackheath Lodge again.

Room Tip: room 6 was at the top and light and airy

This was our first ever trip to South Africa so we spent ages trying to find the perfect place to stay - and the truth is that we couldn't have picked better! Everything about Blackheath Lodge is wonderful - the atmosphere, the bedrooms, the decor, the warmth you feel when you first arrive, the attention that all staff pay too your every need and the extraordinary lengths to which they go to make sure your visit is perfect. And it was just that - perfect! The breakfast superb and the gin and tonic on arrival very welcome! Cape Town is fabulous, but the stay was made even better by having spent it at Blackheath Lodge. We can't wait to return - it will feel like coming home! Huge thanks to Anthony, Michelle and all the other staff for making our stay so very special!

Blackheath lodge is the essential lodging to any romantic getaway. The rooms of this quaint lodge are very spacious, clean and tastefully styled. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is delightful. No traffic noise, despite being located close to all Cape Town's must-see's.
Recommendable.

Be carefull, the lodge gets quickly full... And for good reasons!
We spent only one night here but we enjoyed it a lot: very friendly staff, delightfull decoration, quiet area, 2 min walk from the sea front, the best breakfast of our holidays etc

Anthony was very friendly and was very helpfull to organise restaurants, taxi, visits. A lot more than just a lodge :)
Advised!

... and Blackheath Lodge was a great intro to the warm reception we received throughout our travels along the Southern Cape. We had pre-booked for 6 nights and were a little concerned that this may be too long, but the delights of Cape Town mixed with the 5* hospitality received at Blackheath gave our holiday a fantastic kick start. We arrived early from our overnight flight and were welcomed with a pot of tea and invited to freshen-up before booking our pass to whisk us up Table Mountain by lunchtime - we had declined the offer for breakfast! This level of service was available throughout our stay, but don't take my word for it... sample it for yourself.

There are so many stellar reviews of this wonderful place that it is hard to know what to add. But how would you like the proprietor of your hotel to sit down with you as you are finishing a remarkable breakfast to give you tips and hints for the things he already knows you are doing that day? Anthony does that, treats guests as family, has an extremely competent staff, and contributes to the education of their children. I felt honored to be a guest there.

Thats how I could review this lodge in a few words. Stayed here 2 years ago and ever since wanted to return. They made some very nice refurbishments and the level of sservice has been even improved further with Michelle and Jean-Claude's sister as a cook :)
Perfect, cosey, friendly, homely....perfect. Keep it up guys, you rock.
