The attention to detail in all aspects was second to none. Service was so personal and the staff's knowledge of Cape Town was impressive. We felt very comfortable and at home. Food was excellent and the bed was comfy. We would recommend Blackheath Lodge to anyone visiting Cape Town and will certainly be going back when we can.

Just enjoyed a great stay at Blackheath Lodge. The location is good and the rooms and facilities are very good, but it’s the staff that make it extra special. All those we met were lovely, but a special mention has to go to Karin. After greeting us and showing us round, she spent time with us to find out what...

My husband and I stayed at Blackheath Lodge for 2 nights at the end of our holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality and homeliness which we were treated to there. From our slightly early arrival, where we were met by the delightful Josh, to our departure, nothing was too much. Whilst Josh, who's effervescent personality is contagious, arranged for...

I arrived to Blackheath lodge just before midnight for my one night stay. They had arranged a driver to pick me up from the airport which was so wonderful seeing as I had been traveling for almost 24 hours and was completely disoriented! Check in was a breeze and I was soon alone in a spotless, updated, quiet room in...

What a great place and what amazing people! From the moment we arrived we were looked after wonderfully by the entire team at Blackheath Lodge, nothing was ever too much trouble and little added touches by everyone throughout our stay made all the difference. When my husband became unwell towards the end of our stay everyone was brilliantly helpful and...

From the moment Karen greeted us with a glass of wine to checkout you could not find more gracious staff. All of the staff from front desk to kitchen staff was wonderfully trained and professional. Karen was great at asking what we were interested in and always helpful with places to eat. (uber is great in Capetown and inexpensive). We...

The staff here are exceptional! Godfrey was fantastic from start to finish- he is so charming and intuitive. Brighton at breakfast was also delightful. We hired their car for the day which was fabulous as we had a beautiful day at cape point. This is highly recommended and we will be back.

Visited Blackheath Lodge again after our visit in December 2016. Everything about Blackheath Lodge is fantastic. All the staff are extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Nice touches all around the hotel from the home made cakes in the afternoon to the welcome drinks on our first night to having mobile phones in the room which we used...
