We were there for a week. The location, owners, atmosphere, service and interior were perfect. I loved that they have two cats living in the hotel and really felt like at home. Quiet place. Looks like all the guests are visiting every year, so suggest to book in advance to get a good room. Ours was not big, but clean....

I was visiting Cape Town not for a holiday but for family reasons. From the moment I arrived at Blackheath Lodge, to be greeted cordially by Michelle, I was treated wonderfully well. Owing to a very early flight arrival from London, I couldn't yet get access to my room. It didn't matter: I was able to shower in the facility...

Our first visit to Cape Town and we were thrilled to find every detail taken care of at Blackheath Lodge. From the onset, Antony took care of all our requests made from Canada including a driver to pick us up and return us to the airport and booking our tours of the Cape Town Peninsula and wine region. His restaurant...

We are very pleased with our stay at BHL. It began with our welcome by Jean Claude and continued with the warmth and friendliness of Michelle, Antony and the rest of this team. Our need was attended to. Highlights were the breakfast and eating area, the pool in the afternoon. I have fond memories of many of us guests returning...

We love Cape Town, and stay at the Blackheath Lodge made our 2nd visit to this lovely city even more pleasant. Antony and his team (special comment about Jean Claude: extremely attentive and helpful) are always thinking about how to make your trip enjoyable, relaxed and safe. We warmly recommend the Blackheath Lodge. Gustavo and Patricia Florianópolis, Brasil

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.
