“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012 via mobile

Perfect rooms, perfect breakfast, perfect staff and best of all there is always parking for your rental car. A lot of atmosphere. Eye for detail, for example there is a good library of books and dvd s and dvd player in every room. bathrooms are better than in many 5 star hotel. Staff is extremely helpful and they will make a lot of good suggestions n sightseeing in and around Capetown. We stayed there for a week. Lastly it's extremely well located and very easy to go to the waterfront area and easy to get out of town.

Stayed August 2012, travelled with family

Blackheath is a very well run B & B in a convenient area of Capetown. Anthony the owner is a rock star at making a group of people each feel like they are getting superb personal attention. His recommendations for dinner routinely resulted in instant service, a great table, and memorable meal. The facility is first rate, homey but quite private, beautifully decorated, and very reasonably priced by U.S. standards. This was our first and sadly will probably be our only visit to Capetown, and Blackheath Lodge was one of the high points of our trip.

Room Tip: we had 3 rooms over 4 nights with our group. They were all different but quite nice

The location is close to the shore. The owners are wonderful and take really good care of their personnel. The personnel is always kind and ready for a nice talk. The breakfast is nice, fresh and really fast! And nothing is impossible to ask. You get great tips to visit things that you wouldn't find in a guide and the staff is always ready to help you with anything you desire! To me it was absolutely no surprise they received the trip advisor award for 2011 and 2012. Definately worth going there when I visit capetown another time!

Blackheath Lodge was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed here previously, and it was a great spot to unwind for a few days. Located on a quiet street just a few blocks up from the Strand, it's an easy walk to the ocean or the waterfront. The service at the Lodge is first rate, and the while I didn't have dinner there the breakfasts were fantastic. The staff are quite friendly and were very helpful in suggesting sights to see and things to do.

We arrived at midnight due to travel complications and were warmly welcomed by Jean Claude.
He showed us around and deftly assisted us to our rooms where we had a restful night's sleep.
Next morning, the delicious aroma of breakfast filled the hallway and our room. No request is too small for the helpful and kind staff. Peter did a great job of packing up my wine purchases for the flight home. Michelle arranged a cab and encouraged us to brave the weather and head for Kirstenbosch Gardens....an amazing morning. Staying here is like being in the center of a well maintained beehive, where the goal is your travel happiness. Well done!

We recently returned from our first trip to South Africa and having spent a week in the north of the country with friends we arrived at Blackheath Lodge, slightly anxious, as we embarked on the second leg of our trip alone. It is very hard to add to all the other reviews - Blackheath Lodge is exemplary in every aspect and it is all down to Anthony, Michelle, JeanClaude and all the staff there - the attention to detail in the decor, the facilities, the personal approach which soon had us feeling quite at home and very relaxed. However, not only did Anthony and Michelle make our two nights at Blackheath Lodge memorable but Anthony had also planned and booked the remainder of our trip for us, arranging our car hire and booking beautiful accomodation to suit both our budget and interests along the Garden Route. As a result he helped make this half of our holiday just what it was a truly memorable trip that went without a hitch. We can't thank him enough - except perhaps to return at the earliest opportunity.

In fifty years of travel Anthony provided the highest level of personal service I have ever received--questions answered, problems anticipated, personal concern, outstanding! The hotel itself is very pleasant, in a residential area uphill a couple of blocks from the beach at Sea Point. You will need a taxi or bus to get to center city, but there is a shopping area a block down the hill. The only issue I could see was that the hotel is made up of older houses with some stairs; we didn't have a problem, but if stairs are an issue ask when making reservations.

Room Tip: Ask about stairs if they are an issue for you.
