Blackheath Lodge
Ranked #6 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2008

Last time we stayed in Cape Town we stayed in one of the large city centre hotels. This time after consulting this site we opted for Blackheath Lodge. What a difference!
The welcome and the service were so warm and personal that we felt like guests in a friend's home.
Our room was stunning and the bed was huge and wonderfully comfortable. The breakfasts served on the veranda were absolutely delicious.
Nothing was too much trouble for Antony and John and the rest of the staff and we felt so well looked after.
Needless to say we will not be going back to the big impersonal hotel on our next trip!

Spent a wonderful night here as part of a wedding group. Amazing comfortable bed - very hard to find these days! Friendly genuine service, with our hosts going out of their way to make sure we were all comfortable. Had a great stay and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast the next morning! Would gladly stay again!

I have just returned home after a stay at Blackheath lodge and must say that all the lovely things written about the guest house here are true - these are not just particularly good experiences, I do believe that all of the staff at Blackheath Lodge do their utmost to look after every one of their guests. You could probably turn up without knowing a thing about what Cape Town had to offer and Anthony & Lisa would make sure you had a great trip.

I cannot praise this hotel enough. We arrived a day late (our fault )and still we were welcomed with open arms. Our room was huge, comfortable and the bed was amazing !

Antony and all the staff go beyond the call of duty and are on hand to help you with exercusions, restaurant reservations and generally make your stay an individual one. The guesthouse is beautifully decorated and having breakfast on the terrace is a great start to the day. I only wish we had longer in cape town but we will return ....

The Roundhouse restaurant was recommended and we had an amazing meal there with wine pairing it is not too far from the hotel in Camps Bay.

The staff at Blackheath Lodge are the secret of why this B and B is my favorite of all times. We felt completely pampered, as though we were long lost friends or family. The evening of our arrival, after a nap in our lovely room, we came down to a glass of wine on the lovely patio overlooking the garden and pool. Anthony told us he had made us reservations at a restaurant he recommended, and also called us a cab. Throughout our five day visit, all the staff were wonderful. The breakfasts were lovely, the room with a pocket view of the ocean was wonderful, lovely bed and linens. Also an excellent central location.

At one point I left my coat in a taxi. No problem! We called the Lodge and the staff not only called the taxi company but called us at the restaurant to let us know they had the coat! Did I mention I had my brand new $250 dollar camera in the pocket, and it was returned, too?

A wonderful place to stay, free wine in the evening and your own personal concierge team. What more could you want?

My family and I visited Cape Town in mid-July. I had made the reservations directly with Antony and having no expectations at all. We were all very pleased and happy with what we encountered. Antony's lodge is beautiful, very welcoming, and carefully decorated with a great sense of style. We used a total of 5 different rooms and they were all well equipped, elegant and comfortable. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We were glad to have our pick-up and drop-off from the airport arranged, and during our stay, they also call in the cabs to take us around the city. Daily breakfast was always a feast and the personable attention made each bite a formidable meal and experience; great mini quiches, whole grain bread, sweet and savory croissants, fresh fruit and plenty of good strong coffee of rooisbos tea. Antony and the rest of the staff are good food connaisseurs, providing good recommendations for restaurants and things to do. Having a glass of wine in the evening before going out to dine out always made us feel at home. The combination of staying at the BlackHeath Lodge and touring such a fantastic city, made it an unforgettable trip. We will recommend Antony's BHL to all our friends. We would not want to stay anywhere else besides 6 BlackHeath Road.
