A wonderful, comfortable place to stayPosted May 20, 2016
Pros: It's clean, safe, comfortable, and inviting.
Cons: My only complaint was that our shower leaked water in the corner, such that our floor would get wet. But that's easily fixed.
Location: Walking distance to the ocean and loads of great restaurants.
After a week spent on safari camping, my friend and I arrived at Blackheath and were promptly offered plush seats in the lounge, a complimentary drink, and a host of options as to which room we would like. Every morning, breakfast was freshly prepared with a variety of options. A tour of the cape and dinner reservations at The Pot Luck Club were all arranged beforehand so we had little to arrange upon arrival. Even laundry services were provided to scrub us free of the grime from constant travel and camping. An iPad is offered to every room. A South African mobile is made available as well. The owners have a pet cat and dog (the lovely Coco) who roam the grounds and make the place even more adorable. This place is beyond comfortable, inviting, and relaxing. It more than lived up to its positive, glowing reviews. I highly recommend Blackheath Lodge for anyone traveling to Cape Town.

Helpful staffPosted May 6, 2016
We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival. It is a charming little hotel with a great breakfast. We had asked to hotel to help with some tour arrangements nd they provided a comfortable van and a driver who took the time to understand our tour goals. We had a delightful day as a result. The cost of the private tour was comparable to the group tours offered by the standard operators. We would certainly stay there again.

Stay here, stay here, stay here!Posted Mar 3, 2016 on Hotels
It is a little quirky (think butter in the shape of Storm Trooper faces at breakfast), but those things are what made it so memorable! This is not a 5-Star, run of the mill, large hotel - which was exactly what we were looking for. Everything about this place was absolutely wonderful and perfect for us. Very accomodating, welcoming and they also provided useful perks like a cell phone to take on day trips, an iPad in the room for surfing, DVDs, free WiFi, great wine and bar options, excellent food, french press coffee in the morning, beach bags, coolers, room service etc etc. The service was by far some of the best that I have ever experienced while traveling globally. This was one of the most amazing places that I have ever stayed, we didn't want to leave on our final day - nor during the days that we were guests! When we return to South Africa someday, we will stay here again. Hands down.
