Blackheath lodge is the essential lodging to any romantic getaway. The rooms of this quaint lodge are very spacious, clean and tastefully styled. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is delightful. No traffic noise, despite being located close to all Cape Town's must-see's. Recommendable.
