Just back from a 4 night stay at Blackheath Lodge. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was well-prepared, essentially homemade, top-quality ingredients and with sufficient variety. However, the real stand out was the service provided by Antony and his staff. We had planned 8 nights in the Western Cape, but had only booked the 4 nights at Blackheath, planning to wing it in outlying areas for the other 4 nights. Upon visiting about our plans, Antony came to our rescue and booked us for 2 nights each in Hermanus and Franschhoek, at equally impressive guesthouses. This turned out to be one of our best vacations ever, with great whale watching in Hermanus and wine sampling in Franschhoek. On our third morning at Blackheath, the breakfast cook greeted my wife with a huge "long-time-friends" hug. The hotel location worked well, it was a short, inexpensive cab ride to top class restaurants, the V&A Waterfront and downtown.
Liked best: Personal attentive service, glasses of wine on the verandah in the evening.
Liked least: The door to our room opened almost directly onto the verandah, which might bother some travellers seeking more privacy. Didn't bother us, but a honeymoon couple might want to request a different room.
