We stayed at the Blackheath lodge in November and enjoyed every minute of our time there. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to help make your time in Cape Town an experience to remember. The breakfast was great. On some evenings we were able to enjoy some home cooking. We particularly liked the... More

Great base from which to explore Cape Town. The layout is a little chaotic, a few town houses acquired & joined together to make the Lodge, but that adds to the charm. Rooms are spacious & comfortable, there are seating areas outside the bedrooms where you can relax with a cup of tea/coffee or complimentary port! It's out of town... More

The combination of comfortable beds (why don't more hotels realise the importance of sleep?), superb facilities and wonderfully helpful staff make this our destination of choice in Cape Town. We had a spacious verandah with a sea view, great breakfasts and even a couple of delicious evening meals. If you like small hotels that are friendly without being obsequious then... More

Had a lovely experience staying here. The service was good and the rooms were pleasant also located in a really good part of the city. I recommend it and will definitely return on my next visit to Cape Town.

Room was very nice, although it could have been improved if the terrace had been better screened from the surrounding flats. Breakfasts were enjoyable. The Lodge also had a nice bar for drinks, albeit small. The Lodge had some nice touches like providing a mobile phone, which we could use for local calls, iPAd for use during our stay and... More

We were recommended Blackheath Lodge by a friend and stayed 4 nights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the service was excellent and the breakfasts (which were fantastic and had everything you needed) overlooking the pool area made for a great start to the day. The rooms were also very comfortable - we stayed in both a double room... More

This was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. We cannot compliment the staff enough. They were great and the hotel was spotlessly clean. They also arranged tours for us. The breakfast was great and so was dinner. You cannot go wrong booking here.

My husband and I stayed her on our honeymoon in October. This was the perfect place for us to enjoy and explore Cape Town. It was recommended we stay at a place near the V&A Waterfront, but this offered a much more affordable option within walking distance (about 40 min) from that area. When we visited the waterfront, we couldn't... More
