My sister and I stayed at Blackheath Lodge for 5 days in July and we wish we could have stayed longer. As soon as we got there, Godfrey greeted us with a huge smile and a much needed pot of tea while giving us the complete run down and making sure our dinner plans were accounted for that night. I...

Our stay at Blackheath Lodge absolutely made our Cape Town trip complete! From the warm welcome to our bright + beautiful room, we immediately felt at home at the Lodge. The staff also quickly became friends we looked forward to coming home to. They helped us plan our days and made sure we got to experience the best dining that... More

I stayed at Blackheath Lodge with some friends and everything was perfect including a warm welcome on arrival. It was more of a BnB than hotel and it had a 'home-like' feel to it. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere pleasant to stay during their visit.

No need to go into details, as there's many other reviews providing those, but the hotel is every bit as excellent as the reviews suggest. The staff are amazing, the rooms are comfortable, and the breakfast and in-house bar are both excellent. Only comment is to ask not to stay in rooms 1 or 2, as we had some late-arriving... More

The staff are polite, helpful, friendly and the rooms are perfect. Every comfort is provided without being over the top. Thoughtful attention paid to guest safety - a local mobile with emergency, taxi and lodge numbers is provided. Very impressive accommodation.

I wish I could give a 6th star! This is the most beautifully designed, beautifully run place, and it has a genuine heart. I have tremendous admiration for the way the proprietors have decorated the common spaces and eclectic rooms, and for the delicious and varied breakfasts. The staff really are remarkable, and I am so grateful to all of... More

This is honestly the best hotel I have stayed at. Antony, Charli and Godfrey were so friendly and helpful. They customised our itinerary so we got the most out of Cape Town with the weather. The kitchen staff were so sweet and made us so happy every morning. Being able to have a cell phone with taxi's at our convenience... More

If you are the sort of person that gets a great feeling in airport check in when your booking got upgraded from economy (coach) to first then this is the place for you! I cannot express the service levels of this boutique hotel from Anthony and his able second Godfrey. For a bit of a giggle I checked out the... More

I found this charming boutique hotel after reading the overwhelming positive reviews and I was not disappointed one bit! Antony, Godfrey, and the entire staff were warm and attentive from the moment we stepped through the doors. The rooms are tastefully decorated and there are cozy common areas where you can warm up with a cup of tea after a... More

This is a fantastic place to stay, and does not feel like a hotel at all. Antony, Godfrey and the their team really go out of their way to make you comfortable, and welcome so that you can simply relax and enjoy the beauty of the lodge. Antony's dog and cat made my wife very happy, and reminded her of... More
