I don't normally rate hotels on social media but the personalized service and well appointed accommodations deserve high praise. From the moment that Blackheath's driver picked me up at the airport to the moment the driver picked me up at the Robben Island port (with my bags in the car) to take me back to the airport, Antony and his...

We stayed for 5 nights in Blackheath and it was one of the most pleasant and comfortable experiences I have had the fortune of experiencing. The hotel was immaculately clean and decorated with fine taste. Great location - a very short taxi ride away from centre or a longer stroll and very near to a City Sightseeing bus stop. The...

We spent three nights at the cozy and comfortable Blackheath Lodge, and enjoyed the large and well-appointed room, as well as the attention to every detail around the property. As other reviewers mentioned, there is a local cellphone handy for every guest, which saves racking up roaming charges on your own foreign mobile bill. The owner Anthony has great taste...

We spent 5 days at Blackheath Lodge in December 2011. The building itself was beautiful and the staff was beyond great. We can not say enough good things about the Blackheath Lodge. The location was also superb making trips to anywhere in and around Cape town very easy. If you are travelling to Cape Town, we most strongly recommend the...

Stayed for 2 nights in November and have nothing but compliments for everyone at Blackheath. We were greeted by Michelle and Jean Claude and shown around the property. There is a nice outside sun area with pool and loungers. Michelle was a great source of information for things to do, places to go and where to eat. The rooms were...

Blackheath Lodge met all our needs for the start of our very special holiday. The night we arrived, after a long flight, Jean-Claude welcomed us in such a wonderful manner.

Blackheath is a great location for a stay in Capetown. The rooms are comfortable and wonderfully decorated. There is ample space to sit and talk with friends and breakfast is great. Most importantly, the staff are uniformly friendly and helpful, willing to go the extra step to assure a wonderful trip.

We stayed at Blackheath for 3 out of our 18 day trip to South Africa and really do wish we could have stayed longer. Cape Town is an absolutely fantastic city with so much to do and see but starting and finishing your day at Blackheath made it all the more exciting.
