“Cape Town at its best”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

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.

Be carefull, the lodge gets quickly full... And for good reasons!
We spent only one night here but we enjoyed it a lot: very friendly staff, delightfull decoration, quiet area, 2 min walk from the sea front, the best breakfast of our holidays etc

Anthony was very friendly and was very helpfull to organise restaurants, taxi, visits. A lot more than just a lodge :)
Advised!

... and Blackheath Lodge was a great intro to the warm reception we received throughout our travels along the Southern Cape. We had pre-booked for 6 nights and were a little concerned that this may be too long, but the delights of Cape Town mixed with the 5* hospitality received at Blackheath gave our holiday a fantastic kick start. We arrived early from our overnight flight and were welcomed with a pot of tea and invited to freshen-up before booking our pass to whisk us up Table Mountain by lunchtime - we had declined the offer for breakfast! This level of service was available throughout our stay, but don't take my word for it... sample it for yourself.

There are so many stellar reviews of this wonderful place that it is hard to know what to add. But how would you like the proprietor of your hotel to sit down with you as you are finishing a remarkable breakfast to give you tips and hints for the things he already knows you are doing that day? Anthony does that, treats guests as family, has an extremely competent staff, and contributes to the education of their children. I felt honored to be a guest there.

Thats how I could review this lodge in a few words. Stayed here 2 years ago and ever since wanted to return. They made some very nice refurbishments and the level of sservice has been even improved further with Michelle and Jean-Claude's sister as a cook :)
Perfect, cosey, friendly, homely....perfect. Keep it up guys, you rock.

Black heath Lodge is a wonderful small boutique hotel. The breakfast is wonderful and there is plenty of food it is all homemade. I loved the made to order omletes. There was appetizers and drinks in the afternoon. The rooms are large and the bathrooms. The hotel is situated in Sea Point which is a nice upscale neighborhood. The owners are wonderful and very helpful in arranging any adventure you would like. I chose the Shark Cage experience and it was great.

We stayed at Blackheath Lodge as part of a girls weekend away and we weren't disappointed. The management and staff are helpful and friendly and can't do enough to ensure that you enjoy your stay. We arrived early in the morning to drop our luggage off and we were welcomed with a cup of coffee and invited to freshen up before heading off to the shops. Michelle kindly arranged a taxi to take us to dinner and we were warmly welcomed by Jean Claud when we returned later in the evening. Before breakfast the next day we set out for a long walk along the promenade which is only a few blocks away. The food is sublime and served on a gorgeous covered patio overlooking the pool. The hotel is absolutely spotless and the rooms and bathrooms are spacious and comfortable. We stayed on the top floor with views of Lion's Head from the bathroom and bedroom and even a glimpse of the sea from the sitting area window.

Blackheath Lodge is in a fantastic location for getting around Seapoint and down to the Waterfront, yet is situated in a quiet residential street set a couple of blocks away from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping and restaurant areas. I would highly recommend this hotel for ladies travelling together as we felt safe at all times. Before we set off for our next destination Anthony took the time to give us a map and even suggested a short cut which no one knew about. I will definitely be going back and I might even take my husband next time.
