We recently spent five glorious days in this delightful, boutique B&B in Sea Point. We stayed in Room 16 - a 2-bedroom suite with kitchen, an already stocked fridge and bar and a magnificent view of the ocean. The owners and managers of this B&B have thought of everything: a mini I-Pad for your use; a pre-programmed cell phone for...

Blackheath Lodge deserves all the accolades it gets. We booked rather late so had to be moved around 3 times in the week we spent here but this enabled us to see 3 of the room types on offer and all were fine though my favourite was no 7 upstairs as it was a little larger. Everything is clean and...

Blackheath Lodge This is our third stay in as many years and we remain faithful to BHL because you are treated as family and the relaxed ambience alongside engaging service is just to our liking. On our arrival the welcome from Josh was so genial and warm we instantly relaxed after our 1.5 hour drive from the sister hotel at...

A small hotel with the charm of some of the best B&Bs. I guess I mean that it's service was personal and intimate. Pleasant location just up the hill from the coast...once you get used to the heavy duty South African security everywhere! Lovely room, cute pool, delicious breakfast and all round excellent staff.

They are a team that work together with immense positive energy and aim at making each guest's stay as comfortable, enjoyable and restful as can be. The lodge and rooms are beautifully and artistically decorated, beds super cushy and comfortable, and the breakfasts are home made...

This place is beautiful and a lovely oasis of calm in Cape Town. We stayed in a loft suite which is huge, airy, light and has wonderful views. Can't recommend Blackheath Lodge and its perfect location enough.

Blackhealth Lodge is incredible. The staff are absolutely fantastic and will do anything to make your stay more comfortable. The rooms were great and well thought out, like the inclusion of a mobile phone to take with you for the day. Breakfasts were amazing and we even hired the onsite car for the day to do a day trip. You...

BHL was a delightful experience. The common rooms , courtyard pool gardens/deck area, the windowed veranda breakfast room, the many sitting rooms and our bright spacious deluxe room with water views were all above expectations! Karin and Josh made us feel welcome from the first ring of the door bell to our late check-out complimentary glasses of wine. Karin called...

I booked 2 rooms here for us and our 2 boys, ages 20 and 12 based on the reviews. The prices were reasonable so my expectations were that it would be a comfortable stay in a good location. The lodge passed my expectations in many ways. First of all 1. The Bed. The sheets were high quality and the pillows...
