Spent 3 nights in this wonderful place. Staff were excellent, very attentive at all times. Great breakfast, tea and home made cakes/biscuits during afternoon. Nothing was too much trouble. Organised trips, taxis, restaurants. Gave fantastic advice. We drove the mini and had a great day in the wine region. We will definitely be back. Already planning our next trip later in year. Thanks to you all especially Antony and John for making this a special and memorable break.

My wife and I spent a night at Blackheath Lodge on March 20th. It was a special place with great staff, owners, ambience, rooms, etc. Our flight wasn't until 10 pm, and they were very accommodating.

I highly recommend this lodge for anyone looking to spend a day or more in the heart of Cape Town. It is a short walk to the waterfront and a quick cab to the V&A waterfront development.

Spectacular. Thanks Anthony, and everyone else at Blackheath.

Blackheath Lodge is an beautiful and quaint boutique hotel. Anthony and Jean Claude made sure every detail of your stay is taken care of. They both provided excellent advice and arranged for reservations at really lovely restaurants. They really think of everything. We rented the mini for a day trip to the Cape Peninsula and they made sure we had beach bags stocked with towels! The Lodge is beautiful. Our room was large and decorated beautifully. While we did not have a view, we were happy with how private our room was. The pool area is a lovely place to relax and the bar and kitchen are stocked with anything you could want or need. Breakfast was delicious. I couldn't recommend Blackheath more highly. One quibble - the location is not super convenient to many sights - we relied on cabs. But the Lodge is so lovely, it is almost feels like a retreat from the rest of the city.

May be difficult to rate this hotel after staying at DISART, where the stay was perfect. If the decoration at Black Heath was not my taste, this in only personal and may suit many others. However, the room cleanliness that was very average - mainly the bathroom, bad luck also that noisy tourists decided to have breakfast early.
Bedroom very small, though access to a shared adjacent lounge, felt like locked in a box all night !

Room Tip: Avoid #5 which is locked between pool house toilets and another room

Excellent room. Made to feel very welcome by Godfrey and the team. A beer on arrival is always sure to get me on a hotel's side. Staff are happy to make suggestions and bookings for restaurants/taxis . A nice touch was the provision of a mobile phone, useful for calling taxis etc. (call costs added to bill so don't go nuts and call home for three hours). Excellent breakfast. Not in centre of Cape Town but not too far by taxi. Half hour walk to V&A waterfront.
