I was looking for a relaxing base to recover after my first African safari and the Blackheath almost ticked all the boxes. I hadn't done my research properly and I was surprised I had booked into an upmarket guesthouse rather than a hotel. In my opinion a hotel offers dining choices rather than simply a bed for the night. But... More

Terrific service and kindness from everyone. A cell phone is offered with pre-programmed numbers, which is a nice touch to show that they care about their guest. It's clean and comfortable and in a safe neighborhood. Great breakfast as well!

Such a delight to stay at the Blackheath Lodge for 5 nights in August. The owners and team at the Blackheath seemed like a family - this resonates with their guests. Blackheath was not just our homebase for us whilst in Cape Town... we felt at home here. Our apartment was just lovely and cozy, the breakfast each day was... More

After a day of sightseeing I asked if I could order take-out ...... they wouldn't hear of it ..... "don't eat plastic food, we'll make you dinner." So tasty. They provide you with a... More

We stayed at the Blackheath Lodge in August 2016. The staff are terrific and could not do enough for us, they gave good advice on things to do, travel, sites, restaurants you name it. They make you feel at home from the minute you get there and give you a welcome drink and a quick update on services they provide... More

This is a quite excellent place to stay in Cape Town. To describe Blackheath Lodge, which is superbly located near Green Point and V and A Waterfront, a "guest house" doesn't really do it justice. The friendly staff are extraordinarily helpful and made our stay a joy. Nothing is any trouble to the team and the wholesome freshly cooked food... More

The little things about Blackheath make it special. The made - to - order breakfast, the warm up switch for the towel rack, the proximity to the beach for great walks along the oceanfront all make for a terrific experience. Josh and Karin are in another league with their top notch customer service skills.

This place is in a class of its own. I have travelled a fair bit all over the world but have never seen this level of customer service!!! Every small detail is taken care of. We were delayed and arrived at Cape Town airport at 1030pm. Being from overseas we were somewhat anxious. The wonderful guys at Blackheath had arranged... More
