Thank you Karin, Riano for making our holiday in Cape Town unforgettable. Situated near the Waterfront. Easy to make use of Uber with the help of the Staff. Great service and nice to have a drink round the pool. Excellent value for money and situated in a quiet street and yet not very far from the beach.

Hotel's Favourite
We were lucky enough to stay at Blackheath Lodge for 8 nights in January this year. There is absolutely nothing the team wouldn't do for us and by the end of the stay, Riano, Godfrey, Charle and Karin were like old friends. Brighton and the support staff were equally as charming and helpful. This place is an original design and concept. Not something you often find these days but there is clearly a formula that keeps the Lodge humming along perfectly resulting in a relaxing, enjoyable and fabulous stay. I can't wait to stay here again. Jamie Sydney

We had the privilege of staying at Blackheath Lodge for a night recently - the warm & friendly (COVID compliant) welcome was super and we felt at home immediately. The rooms have a classy & modern feel, while being extremely comfortable and well equipped. The staff are all fantastic, friendly and professional. Breakfast was delightful and Riano's chocolate cake was divine to top it off! Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Nestled away so feels very private (and quiet), but has great access to what Cape Town has to offer.

We had such a great stay at The Blackheath Lodge, it is a hidden gem and has a lot of style and is really well setup, the rooms are really well equipped and are very comfortable. The staff are friendly and make sure you have what you need at all times. The breakfast served next to the pool was a definite highlight. Overall it is a fantastic place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone.
