My husband and I had a fabulous start to our honeymoon in South Africa staying in Blackheath Lodge. We stayed for 4 nights at the end of October/beginning of November and really enjoyed our stay here.

The owners John and Antony were extremely helpful and friendly and Antony helped us to plan our itinerary for our 4 days in Cape Town, suggesting places to visit and giving us advice on how to go about it.

Our room was in the attic and very spacious and comfortable with a big king size bed, mini bar, air conditioning and nice furnishings.

Breakfast was very pleasant and served on the verandah overlooking the pool - fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, fresh baking (yummy cinnamon croissants), toast, muesli, coffee, tea, juice and smoothies.

The guest house was n a nice residential location and it took around 30 minutes to walk to the V&A waterfront or arund R25 in a taxi.

On one of the evenings in the guesthouse an African dinner was arranged - a 3 course traditional African meal cooked by Sophia, a South African chef. The food and wine was very enjoyable and we had a great evening.

Overall we had an excellent stay here and I would highly recommend it. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Cape Town in future.

We had a very nice week at the Blackheath Lodge. The owners and the staff are very pleasant and helpful, making the atmosphere very cosy. The rooms are charming and spacious with nice towels, bedlinen etc. The pool area seems nice - although we did not spend time there with all the nice things you can do in and around Cape Town. The breakfast is very good, especially the fresh and nicely cut-up fruits, fruit juice and smoothies.

The situation makes it possible to walk to most things. And the area also seemed very safe - we walked a lot during the day and the early evening.

We would definitely recommend the Blackheath Lodge to other travellers.
