I have traveled all over the world and am hard pressed to think of a more pleasant establishment where I have spent my time. The Blackheath Lodge in the Sea Point neighborhood of Cape Town was fantastic. Antony and John provide excellent service, always having informed answers to my questions about the city and trips and transportation, and the staff (especially Charlette, Jean Claude, Peter, Godfrey and all the lovely ladies who took care of us during the mornings) were top notch as well. So many smiles! They all seemed to generally care about us guests and chat with us as people, not customers. The location was great as it is on a side street between Main Road and High Road, so there are restaurants, grocery and bars within walking distance. I felt safe to walk around, even at night. It is a quick ride into Cape Town CBD or about a 25-30 minute walk into the city center via the High Road. The lodge itself was beautiful and comfortable, complete with a fire nook and house cat to warm with during the winter days of my stay. The food was wonderful every morning and the ladies making breakfast were a pleasure to see each day. And you MUST have the afternoon biscuits left out for tea! They are addictive.
I can't recommend the Blackheath Lodge enough for singles and couples visiting Cape Town. I will definitely look them up again when I return.
