“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We stayed at this accommodation in January this year, it is a lovely house and the staff are warm friendly and so helpful. The location is excellent,so close to the sea.So much better than staying in a 5 star hotel. It went beyond our expectations, and we would definately stay there again.

I can only agree with other reviewers.....We stayed for 4 nights and I have NEVER had such fantastic and personal service. Better than in a 5-star hotel! I will never stay anywhere else in Cape Town in the future.
Loved the pool, the room, the breakfast, the service, the dinner reservations, the people we met, the cat and of course Anthony and the staff.
Thank you everyone, we had the best vacation!

What a beautiful place, what wonderful people. We stayed here for one night after traveling the garden route, this place was one of my highlights of the trip, Anthony and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, nothing was too much bother. They helped us plan our last days in Cape Town to perfection, giving us all the local advice.
The accommodation is just beautiful, the beds are so comfy, gorgeous modern bathroom, so spacious and clean.
Breakfast was divine, all homemade and everything we could possibly want.
Location was perfect, quiet yet central, easy to get to all the sights.
If you want a place to stay where you can make the most of your time in Cape town and stay in a luxurious B&B this is it! Like a five star hotel with the personal touch….Bliss.

Blackheath Lodge is a lovely place, it surpassed expectations. We had a very relaxed stay and Anthony so helpful in making extra arrangements for our trip. The decor is fab with lots of quirky touches and the location excellent, just a short walk from the sea. Breakfast was perfect and all the staff really helpful. Cute little pool and well tended gardens. Want to go back already!

Good location, We arrived early morning and were welcomed with breakfast and access to shower room (no extra charges), Anthony and staff very helpful- great advice on where to go and what to do. Arranged tours for us.
Comfy quiet rooms very well appointed. No hesitation, would stay again.

Very friendly B&B with a great staff, and nice pool area. My room had a good view. They were helpful in all ways. Sea Point is not far from all the places I wanted to visit in Cape Town. A little hard to find at night with my Avis car GPS, but no real problem.

A great place to stay in Cape Town! Quite central, but also quite close to the beaches (but neither is what I'd call a short walk away either..)
A nicely decorated place, where you feel right at home..only more relaxed!
It's great to enjoy a glass of wine by the pool and the breakfast on the balcony was wonderful!
They've got great attention to detail- with a cellphone with a south african sim-card on the room, for when you don't want to bring your own out with you, a mini-cab outside you can rent by the day to explore the cape (but it's popular, so book in advance!).. But they've also got a direct phoneline to a reasonable and reliable taxi-service. We got a lot of nice restaurants recommended and the staff will do their best to make your stay memorable!
We also liked the fact that the lodge had started a fund for their employees childrens education! It made us feel like they really looked after both their guests and their employees.
We will return, I hope in not too long!
