Reviewed 1 November 2009

We were welcomed warmly by Anthony, a wonderful host. Blackheath is stylish, chilled, relaxing and peaceful. Spacious and clean bedroom and bathroom. We very much enjoyed spending time sitting in the garden/pool/verandah area where tea, wine etc was always on offer. Yummy, fresh breakfasts. An extremley well run guest house. Our host gave us great suggestions for supper, lunch, days out and made all the chosen restaurant/taxi bookings most efficiently. It was a very easy place to be. I only wish we could have spent more time there.

Located in the Sea Point area. Easy walk to the sea front, 15 mins to the Waterfront. Great walks along the long promendade. We took took taxis in the evening.

A stay at this lodge will be a delighting time indeed. Antony, John and all the staff are wonderful hosts. They will always be here for good advices and help with constant kindness.
The Lodge is a real pleasure for the eyes. Every room has its own style and personality. You will feel there better than home!

Just back from a 4 night stay at Blackheath Lodge. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was well-prepared, essentially homemade, top-quality ingredients and with sufficient variety. However, the real stand out was the service provided by Antony and his staff. We had planned 8 nights in the Western Cape, but had only booked the 4 nights at Blackheath, planning to wing it in outlying areas for the other 4 nights. Upon visiting about our plans, Antony came to our rescue and booked us for 2 nights each in Hermanus and Franschhoek, at equally impressive guesthouses. This turned out to be one of our best vacations ever, with great whale watching in Hermanus and wine sampling in Franschhoek. On our third morning at Blackheath, the breakfast cook greeted my wife with a huge "long-time-friends" hug. The hotel location worked well, it was a short, inexpensive cab ride to top class restaurants, the V&A Waterfront and downtown.
Liked best: Personal attentive service, glasses of wine on the verandah in the evening.
Liked least: The door to our room opened almost directly onto the verandah, which might bother some travellers seeking more privacy. Didn't bother us, but a honeymoon couple might want to request a different room.

Blackheath Lodge is lovingly run by Anthony, John and their team. Details are their specialty and they offer creative and thoughtful advice regarding what might be of interest in Capetown regardless of the focus of your particular trip. Our room was lovely and the food good. There is a small, intimate pool area with comfortable lounge chairs that invite afternoon naps. The B&B is in a quiet, residential neighborhood 2 blocks from the beach. It is in Seapoint on the east side of Capetown and there are few tourists and you immediately are immersed in everyday South African life (with class!).

We stayed more than a week at Blackheath Lodge. The lodge is very clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is delicious. Antony and John helped us organize a Western Cape tour and made all the bookings for us. It was very convenient. At the end of our five day tour we returned back to Blackheath Lodge for our last day in Cape Town. I would higlhly recommend this lodge... great value for what you pay.
