Blackheath Lodge
Ranked #4 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The Blackheath Lodge was perfect for a single woman traveler who wanted to feel more like she was staying in someone's home than in a hotel. Anthony and his staff are marvelous--helpful, responsive and very gracious with an attention to detail that makes staying here special. They have suggestions for restaurants and activities. The breakfasts are delicious with hot and cold options. The wifi is robust. The hotel is located in a quiet residential area, a short cab ride from the Waterfront. I hope to return to Cape Town and I would definitely stay at the Blackheath again.

After a long 20 hours of traveling, this was such a welcoming retreat. It is nestled on a quiet street with free parking for guests. The staff is so gracious and has excellent recommendations for sites to visit and restaurants to eat around town. This is not a large hotel, and the pool area is small, so it is perfect if you like boutique hotels.

The breakfast is delicious, and they have snacks available throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this place to others when visiting Cape Town.

My husband I traveled to Cape Town in June as part of a family trip around the continent with our (2) 20 something daughters. The staff at Blackheath Lodge was simply amazing. The Lodge is absolutely darling and the attention to detail shows at every glance. Very comfortable and extremely inviting the common areas are cozy and the rooms elegant, inviting and super comfortable. Love, love the modern spacious bathrooms. Anthony and his staff (Charle, Jean Claude, Peter and all the rest) go above and beyond to ensure that your stay is as memorable as possible. They delightedly took care of outings for our daughters while my hubby and I rented their fun, zippy red mini convertible for a day trip to the cape on our own. If I could live here I would! The breakfast is simply incredible with divine home made delicacies that change each day. We may just come back to Cape Town just to stay here and see what Antony and his team have been up to. Thank you so much for the wonderful care and kindness we received. Cheers to you all....The Zier Family

I stayed at Blackheath Lodge with several other women at the end of May for 4 days. The Lodge was lovely---comfortable beds, terrific showers and the staff couldn't be more helpful or accommodating. The full breakfast each morning was fantastic, ranging from a full american breakfast to lovely fresh fruit and yogurt, minature quiches and wonderful pasteries . The bread was simply delicious. I would highly recommend the Lodge for anyone visiting Capetown. The whole experience was simply wonderful.

This has to be one of the nicest places we have stayed on the continent. Very welcoming! After a late flight from JoBerg, the lodge had a car service pick us up at the airport and zipped us to the lodge. Nestled on a quiet street, we were greeted and escorted to chairs by the fire where the check in took place. Our bags were delivered to our spacious and well appointed room. We were in room 6. Wonderful. Great bed, fabulous bathroom and peaceful. They even have a cell phone for your use during your stay.

Charlay (sp) is the epitome of hospitality. Everything from restaurant reservations to sites to see while in Cape Town.

We were in the bush for 7 days prior and took advantage of the laundry service. In before 9 am and back the same day the the late afternoon. Fantastic .

Tea and coffee are always available. Wonderful breakfast goodies and made to order eggs. What a great kitchen. Too bad they only do breakfast which is included by the way. Since it was winter, the pool is not up and running. This is a small and intimate lodge where service is top notch. If there were 6 stars, I would give it to them. Thanks also to Jean Claude who also took such very good care of us. The staff is really there to serve and the do it so well.

We will certainly be back when in Cape Town. Save a room for us please!

Room Tip: Try for room 6. A great corner room.
