“Fabolous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2011

We loved staying at Blackheath lodge. The owner Anthony is great and helped us to book tours, restaurants and other hotels along the Garden route. The staff at Blackheath lodge will do everything they can to help you with your needs. The rooms are charming and clean and breakfast was great.

Although there are some restaurants in the area (Buzbee grill was an ok place for steak and fish) you will probably take a taxi if you want to eat out. If you´re tired the staff will help you to order food from one of the many take out-places that you can have on the lovely terrace. Dont make your order too late, though, or the restaurants will have closed.

Blackheath lodge is very close to the water so you can take a nice long walk along the waterfront to the city centre from here. It looks a lot closer on the map than it is in reality. Most of the time you will take a taxi or a bus, but that is the case in all of Cape Town.

South Africa is a fantastic country and we will certainly book a room at Blackheath lodge next time we go there.

Excellent staff and service, a cozy atmosphere and located on the right side of Cape Town. Anthony and the rest of the staff made our stay in Cape Town to an incredible memory. We still miss the cinnamon pancakes in the morning...

Anthony has made it a wonderful experience for us, he's very helpful, always smiling and would go the extra mile to make sure you're satisfied.
Very elegent interiors with excellent choice of colors, cleanliness and attention to every detail makes the stay worth every penny (mobile phone with local SIM card, DVD and books library, delicious breakfast, free WiFi, mini bar for you to fill,...etc.). Highly recommended for those who want a relaxing stay, in a cozy atmosphere that offers the things YOU REALLY NEED during your stay.

I truly enjoyed my all-too-brief stay at Blackheath Lodge earlier this month. The accommodations were chic and stylish and full wireless internet throughout is a rare and welcome amenity in Cape Town. Will most certainly return and will recommend to friends.

The Blackheath Lodge is the only place to stay in Cape Town, not only for the perfect location, the beautiful guest house and all the comforts but especially for impeccable service i received from Antony , John and the whole team. Antony was always available to help in any way; he suggested the best restaurants and places to go and helped me organizing my trip to the Garden Route.
I travelled a lot all over the world and stayed in beautiful 4 or 5 stars hotel but i never experienced such a perfect customer service that had been at the maximum standard from the time we entered the Backheath Lodge till the day sadnley I had to leave.
Thank You for the unforgettable stay.........

After reading all of the positive reviews about the lodge, I took the plunge and booked. Now, I can't see myself staying ANYWHERE else when I'm in Cape Town. The place was beautiful and the staff were friendly and accommodating. I stayed in the lodge at the end of a three week camping tour of the coast... which, needless to say, made the elegant surroundings stand out even more. Don't hesitate to book.

Stayed August 2010, travelled solo
