Blackheath lodge, run by Antony and John, is fantastic. It is cozy but modern, tasteful, inviting, extremely clean and very relaxed. The location is exactly where you want to be: steps to the beach, restaurants, the city and Table Mountain. The breakfasts are astonishingly good with friendly, approachable service. Antony and John managed to squeeze us in on short notice...

We booked this B&B on the strength of other Tripadvisor reviews for one week in April 2011. We wanted a relaxing week in Cape Town after a 14-day tour of SA, and somewhere special to spend our 20th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed! On arrival we were met by Antony and the 2 resident cats, Lime & Soda, before...

I could bang on about how fantastic this place was forever and a day. This is the only place where I have stayed where I could not fault one single aspect. You wanted for nothing and the staff went above and beyond anything that was expected. If you go to Cape Town this place should be your first choice.

After a total of 15 hour travel, we were excited to see our B&B, which we chose after a long process of elimination of the hotels in Cape Town. As expected, it was one of a kind. The lobby is small and vintage as if it jumps out of the cover of an art magazine. The breakfast area is extremely...

Blackheath feels like coming home in Cape Town. Anthony and his staff are so friendly and their advises for restaurants, places to go and routes to come there :-) are great. The service is really impeccable. If you want to visit Cape Town in a relaxed and stylish lodge, this is the place to stay. Breakfast is excellent; I wish...

Blackheath Lodge was the perfect place to stay in Capetown. After busy days of sightseeing, coming 'home' to the charming rooms, super-comfortable beds and outdoor spaces at this lodge was heavenly. The service was impeccable and the breakfast was amazing - the crepes are a must have!! A helpful, sharing environment with staff and other guests make Blackheath a gem...
