What a wonderful stay! The rooms are immaculate. The furniture is beautiful and the beds are so comfortable. There is a fireplace for colder days while enjoying the beautiful view and a pool for those warm sunny days. The staff is friendly and Riano went out of his way to ensure a perfect stay. The location is great too. It is walking distance from the shops, fantastic restaurants and coffee shops. We would highly recommend it to everyone.

We has such a wonderful stay! Karin and Riano took great care of us and were so helpful. We loved the location and amazing breakfast in the morning. The sitting area of the lodge is so beautifully decorated that we actually ordered dinner in one night so we could enjoy some drinks and play cards downstairs because we wanted to spend time there. We hope to be back one day!

Blackheath Lodge is such a lovely place to stay in the heart of Seapoint, just a stones throw from the V&A Waterfront. Riano & Karin are fabulous hosts and so friendly and attentive. They go out of their way to accommodate guests and even the smallest requests. Our room was very spacious and so tastefully decorated with good quality linen. Breakfast was a delicious spread and the kids were spoilt with the yummiest flapjacks on Sunday morning. Thank you Karin & Riano, you made our stay in Cape Town very memorable. We will definitely return! Karen & JJ
