Our great experience of Blackheath started at home in England three months prior to our arrival there. Anthony provided great customer service via the telephone & email, he offered to help us maximise our time in Cape Town by having trips organised for us to save us shopping around. We decided not to take him up but it was great to know that if we changed our minds that Anthony was on the end of the phone/email.
On arrival I think we gave Anthony quite a shock as I had booked via email and stated I would be bringing my daughter. I think Anthony thought she was older than just the 3years that she is. (apparently its 12+ for kids). To his credit he said no problem and was happy to see her everytime she bumped into her; the staff were fantastic and were also great with my daughter.
The place is very small and compact and I can totally understand the children policy. Although it is very small the rooms are amazing & huge; they are fantasically decorated and has everything you need. The whole place is fantasically decorated, everywhere you look there is the smallest detail that just makes the place so great. The mornings were my favourite time as the breakfasts and the breakfast balcony are just fantastic.
I love the place and would choose this anyday over any of the V&A hotels.
I really hope I get the chance to visit again.....
