This is the third hotel I have stayed in, in Cape Town and by FAR the best.
From the instant, personal welcome to the personal farewell the place is a delight!
Anthony and John are fantastic hosts as are all their staff. The ambiance and decor are gorgeous.
Breakfasts are just delicious - I'm sure I am not the first one to mention the mini quiches!...and the strawberry tart...fruit salad,,,,fresh juice and smoothies...I could go on!!
Location is very convenient for major routes in and out, the beaches and Waterfront. Also safe enough to have walks out along the promenade (to a great cafe near the lighthouse). The welcome pack (personalised) waiting in your room is a really thoughtful - and of course useful - touch, along with a reputable cab number which is VERY handy.
I had one of the attic rooms in the main house - which was so roomy, bright and comfortable...with a HUGE bed!
The garden and pool are small - but lovely and there is plenty of sun through the day for sun worshipping....while still having plenty of shady spots to escape the heat. There's a computer with free internet tucked away, which is also very handy.
I only had 3 days at Blackheath, but felt like a lot longer - it was just what was needed to refresh and relax. I was travelling alone,but was made to feel very much part of the crowd - as fellow guests are also part of the attraction there.
Would definitely stay there again and definitely recommend to others!
