We stayed at the Blackheath Lodge for eight days. From the moment we arrived, service was exceptional. We were greeted with a welcome drink and Joshua (whom I repeatedly called Jonathan, sorry about that!!) provided us with a map and suggested places to go. Mamie, Portia and Brighton provided fantastic breakfast every day. Sometimes our friends were picking us up...

My wife and I recently took a trip to Capetown, South Africa. After reading such great reviews, we decided to book 4 nights at the Blackheath Lodge. We were VERY glad we did! Upon arrival (tired from LONG flights from the U.S.) we were greeted and checked in by a very helpful and attentive staff. We sat down and had...

Stayed for one night at end of holiday and just wish we had an extra few days at Blackheath Lodge. The staff are amazing and are so friendly and cannot do enough. Beaytiful decoration throughout and attention to detail everywhere. Five min walk to the waters edge and easy taxi ride to the other surrounding bays. After rushing around for...

The attention to detail in all aspects was second to none. Service was so personal and the staff's knowledge of Cape Town was impressive. We felt very comfortable and at home. Food was excellent and the bed was comfy. We would recommend Blackheath Lodge to anyone visiting Cape Town and will certainly be going back when we can.

Just enjoyed a great stay at Blackheath Lodge. The location is good and the rooms and facilities are very good, but it’s the staff that make it extra special. All those we met were lovely, but a special mention has to go to Karin. After greeting us and showing us round, she spent time with us to find out what...

My husband and I stayed at Blackheath Lodge for 2 nights at the end of our holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality and homeliness which we were treated to there. From our slightly early arrival, where we were met by the delightful Josh, to our departure, nothing was too much. Whilst Josh, who's effervescent personality is contagious, arranged for...

I arrived to Blackheath lodge just before midnight for my one night stay. They had arranged a driver to pick me up from the airport which was so wonderful seeing as I had been traveling for almost 24 hours and was completely disoriented! Check in was a breeze and I was soon alone in a spotless, updated, quiet room in...

What a great place and what amazing people! From the moment we arrived we were looked after wonderfully by the entire team at Blackheath Lodge, nothing was ever too much trouble and little added touches by everyone throughout our stay made all the difference. When my husband became unwell towards the end of our stay everyone was brilliantly helpful and...

From the moment Karen greeted us with a glass of wine to checkout you could not find more gracious staff. All of the staff from front desk to kitchen staff was wonderfully trained and professional. Karen was great at asking what we were interested in and always helpful with places to eat. (uber is great in Capetown and inexpensive). We...
