Reviewed 16 November 2009

Blackheath Lodge came highly recommended from very discerning travellers (note: fussy and like attention to detail!) and I was certainly not disappointed.

Great location, charming and friendly service, very comfortable rooms and relaxed peaceful atmosphere ... will definitely make a bee line on next visit! Perfect as a base exploring Cape Town and surroundings or for a relaxing retreat from the world ...

Our first time to South Africa, and Blackheath Lodge ended our holiday perfectly. The hotel is a great location, about 10 mins on the bus or in a taxt to the V&A Waterfront or 15 mins to Camps Bay. It's in a quiet location off the busy road, but easy to get to and had parking for our hire car. All the staff really go the extra mile for you right through from first making contact to book. Antony's restaurant suggestions were amazing - we would never have found those places otherwise. Would definitely recommend the place and stay there again...

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.....

We enjoyed our "secret" getaway at Blackheath. In the middle of the bustling city is this quite oasis. The breakfast was the best of all the breakfasts on our 2 week trip. Order an omlete, they are delicious!. Antony was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and other arrangements including a booking through the Wine Desk for a tour of the wine region. You must do this! The neighborhood is convenient and the rooms comfortable. You must eat at Sevruga's in the waterfront. What a memorable night.

We were recommended to Blackheath Lodge by friends - and we were very grateful to then for doing so, after a lovely week with Antony, Michelle, Jean-Claude and the team. The location is very convenient for trips into town or out to the country. The courtyard garden and pool are delightful and we always looked forward to our breakfast on the verandah - such a marvellous choice of healthy, fresh food ... and also some indulgences! Our room was very spacious, had lots of character and was beautifully furnished. Above all, the helpfulness and warmth of the whole team is marvellous. Whether day trips or evening meals, they could not have been better at finding exactly what we wanted, including places we would not have found in a month of hunting on our own. If you want something completely different from a large, corporate chain hotel, look no further.

Michelle, Jean-Claude, Antony, John and Team run this little oasis in the Sea Point area. They are incredibly friendly, relaxed and make you feel at ease. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and the quality of the beds is fantastic. This is a true, small scale boutique hotel with a nice little swimming pool and a gorgeous breakfast in the morning. I cannot think of anything else a traveller would desire.
