My first impression was that the reviews were exaggerated- I was wrong! We spent 4 days ,prior to a cruise, at this delightful establishment. The whole staff went out of their way to help/advise us. Every need was anticipated and fulfilled ( except I couldn't take the dog home with me). This is a quirky and interesting property and the...

What a lovely, quaint guesthouse with superlative service. The guesthouse has 16 rooms, all unique with different attributes; a swimming pool with shaded lounge chairs and all the mod cons. It is really a lovely quiet retreat which is well located close to the beach and the amenities. Special thanks to Godfrey and Joshua for making our stay extra special....

We arrived around 9am Sunday morning after flying over 24 hours to get to South Africa and were greeted by a friendly staff and great breakfast. The lodge is very quaint as every room is different and has unique styles to them but all very modern. The bathrooms were modern as well as clean which is something I look for!...

We last stayed in Blackheath Lodge 6 years ago and then described it as an inspired choice. So on our return to Cape Town where else would we stay? And once again the whole experience was an inspired choice. We emailed Antony saying that we wanted 11 nights in Cape Town area and asking for suggestions. He came back with...

This was our third time that we stayed at the BHL. And again we have enjoyed every minute here. There really is no better option when you are looking for a hotel in Cape Town. The staff is like family. Rooms are great and the tranquility is unique. We would recommend the BHL anytime! Check out BHL’s sister One Marine...

Dear Roy and Manon Thanks for your great review and glad you enjoyed One Marine Drive Boutique Hotel in Hermanus. Hermanus is a great add-on to the Cape Collection and anyone travelling to Cape Town needs to stay some nights in this quaint seaside village filled with wine.

We recently spent five glorious days in this delightful, boutique B&B in Sea Point. We stayed in Room 16 - a 2-bedroom suite with kitchen, an already stocked fridge and bar and a magnificent view of the ocean.

Blackheath Lodge deserves all the accolades it gets. We booked rather late so had to be moved around 3 times in the week we spent here but this enabled us to see 3 of the room types on offer and all were fine though my favourite was no 7 upstairs as it was a little larger.
