We were in Cape Town for 6 days and were so glad we stayed at Blackheath Lodge. It is wonderful boutique hotel with an amazing staff. After we got settled on the day we arrived, Karin sat down with us to go over what we planned to do while in Cape Town. She offered suggestions and made dinner reservations for...

We spent a wonderful three day stay at the blackheath lodge. We had a very warm welcome and good explanation about the city. The atmosphere is very nice, rooms are cozy and spacious, especially the apartment (room 17) is a luxurious and spacious two bedroom accommodation. Breakfast is very nice and fresh. Next to fresh fruits, sweets, pastries, you can...

My wife and I stayed 12 nights in January. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and offered breakfast despite being several hours before our check-in time. The room was very spacious and well equipped but with no outside space or balcony. The bed was very comfortable with good quality bedding. The Lodge is most unusual in design with an internal...

Like many reviews I have read previously, I must say this place is absolutely amazing. The staff were all very friendly and made great recommendations about where to eat and what to tour. The set up of the lodge is beautiful with a pool in the centre "courtyard"and a lovely eating area. The rooms come with a small iPad and...

We stayed for 4 nights and had the most gorgeous room, with two bedrooms and a large terrace and sun deck - truly wonderful! The staff were so lovely and could not do enough for you - Charlee, Godfrey and all we met. They happily arranged taxis, gave recommendations etc and all in all, it was a memorable stay in...

Like all the reviews say, this is a hidden gem! We stayed here for 3 nights and we could've been home from home! The rooms are so comfortable, the staff were always smiling, Pearl's breakfasts were amazing and Coco the dog, well, she was an added bonus! Thank you BHL.

Amazing, amazing guesthouse - we could not fault them for one thing and would highly recommend! My husband and I stayed here for five nights in October 2016 - he prefers big hotels and was skeptical of a guesthouse, but Blackheath completely won him over. I like trying new places, but if we went back to Cape Town, I would...

We were traveling with a group of couples from Canada on a South African golf vacation. Blackheath Lodge was our final 3 nights and was the icing on the cake. Antony and staff made sure our every need was taken care of. Four of us used Karl to take us to a golf course about 30 minutes away and he...

BHL is a little gem! We have just returned from a 15 night stay . At one level it is a very comfortable, quiet, conveniently located up market B & B or boutique hotel. But what makes it great is the friendly, knowledgable, exceptionally helpful and professional staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. I could mention individuals but...
