All we can say is wow! We travel frequently all over the world and we found that hotels although elegant start to feel the same so we look for unique luxury accomodations to enhance the travel experience. We sure found it at Blackheath Lodge. From the booking process online, picking us up at the airport, greeting us at the Lodge and helping us to get settled everything was very smooth and professional. The service here was exceptional, we felt like we were part of a family instead of guests. We can't say enough about Antony, he is the owner and his attention to detail in helping you with anything is incredible. He is so knowledgeable with the local area and the various things to do, he will take care of it all for you. It is like having your own personal concierge! The breakfasts in the morning are wonderful and we can still remember the taste of the great french pressed coffee.

Room Tip: Each room is very different & has its own character. Book early & ask for recommendation ba...

We had heard about Blackheath Lodge from some friends, but it far exceeded our expectations. Wonderful rooms! Antony and his staff went above and beyond by setting up transportation and tours for us too! They were so curtious and friendly. We would absolutely recommend Blackheath to anyone coming to Capetown!

A small oasis of perfection with an outstanding level of service. John and Anthony really take good care of you. The mini-quiche at breakfast is always a good start. Clean and nice rooms.

Like other reviewers, I *never* stay at guest houses or B&Bs, especially while on business. This is the one exception in the world (and I've traveled to 40-50 countries). Lovely guest house that feels private, fast free internet, and a quite location in Sea Point make this a really terrific option for vacation or business in Cape Town. Daily breakfast is legitimately delicious, and the staff are helpful and courteous. Highly recommended, and also an incredible deal/value for the price.

This was our first time visiting South Africa. A friend had recommended Blackheath Lodge. We couldn't have been happier. The owners do a great job catering to your every need. Every night we would sit on the deck for a sundowner and they would help us find a great spot for dinner. Breakfast every morning was great. Again the owners were present making recommendations on how to fill our day. Rooms were clean and decorated beautifully. We've now recommended Blackheath to several friends planning trips to SA

We were so lucky to find Blackheath Lodge at the recommendation of a friend. My first time in Cape Town and it couldn't have worked out better. What a lovely place. Full of class and luxury, with a comfortable and home-like feel. Excellent location just steps from the Sea Walk. And the attention given by the staff was beyond reproach. Michelle is a complete doll and Jean-Claude is a gem of a guy. Everyone was wonderful! I can't imagine staying anywhere else next time I'm in Cape Town... which inevitably will not be soon enough.
