After reading a great number of the recent and older reviews, there is not much to add. We stayed here for 11 nights over the Christmas and New Year holidays -- and Blackheath "wears well" and consistently deserves all of these superlative reviews. Antony, John and the staff have created and maintain a hotel environment, to which we will compare all others in the future. We did not find another hotel during our stay in South Africa and Abu Dhabi that we felt provided the same level of personal, caring service and a comfortable, welcoming environment. As a matter of fact, we decided we could only name a couple of other hotels in all of our business and leisure travel that compared.
Just a couple notes about the staff's personal attention and competence:
1) We had a medical emergency during the morning of our arrival to the Lodge. When we arrived at the Lodge to drop our bags, Charle had sorted out which hospital to send us and the taxi was ready to take us to the emergency room. After we returned and in the coming days, the staff was very caring, providing odds and ends that we needed, such as clingwrap for showers and extra towels.
2) The taxi service, all previously arranged by the staff for all of the guests on New Year's Eve, did not arrive to take the guests to their various NYE destinations in Cape Town. So, John took out their car and drove all of the guests to their various destinations in time for their reservations. Above and beyond call... And, doing this...after a putting on a wonderful NYE cocktail party for the guests!
So, as you think about where to stay in Cape Town, don't even think about going anywhere else!
