“Lovely B&B!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We stayed at Blackheath for 4 nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. The staff are AMAZING - they helped us arrange a rental car from Cape Town airport, and also helped us arrange our 2 night stay in the winelands. The hotel is comfortable and clean, breakfast is fantastic, and I would definitely go again!

The rooms were fantastic and the whole place is adorable – inside and out! The location is great (close to the ocean, good restaurants, and the Waterfront is within walking distance). The staff was incredibly kind and friendly and willing to help with anything we needed. Breakfast is made to order and delicious. Anthony knows all of the local places and helps with any reservations that need to be made. I think we got a great deal on the Rent A Car when we mentioned we were staying at Black Heath Lodge

My mom and I stayed at Blackheath Lodge for 10 days over Christmas and New Year and it became a home away from home.
I stumbled across Blackheath after reading only but the most positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and it did not disappoint.
The property itself is beautiful, a peaceful oasis set centrally in Sea Point.
It's the little things that you notice about this place - from the incredible customer service from Antony, John, Charle, Jean Claude, Peter and the rest of the wonderful staff, to the beautifully cooked and laid out breakfasts each morning, the peaceful surroundings of the pool area in the afternoons with the complimentary sunscreens and fruit infused iced water, the lovely and clean rooms with Charlotte Rhys products... the list really goes on and on.
Everything about Blackheath Lodge is thought out and executed beautifully.
We loved every minute of our stay and know that this is the only place we would ever stay when returning to Cape Town.

This is one of those places that are so good, you don't really want to tell anyone about. Whether ii is their fabulous service, scrumptious breakfasts, and gorgeous bedrooms, this is certainly one of my favourite places to stay.

Room Tip: Book early!

Stylish, casual, with incredible warmth & intimacy, the Black Heath Lodge is a hidden treasure! Whether poolside, surrounded by lush landscape, refreshments and service, you are treated as though welcomed family. Rooms are beautifully designed, made to order breakfasts, the list goes on. Very personalized and home away from home
