Great position for exploring Cape Town

Posted Nov 21, 2017
Pros: Location. Pool. Breakfast. Bar. Afternoon tea and cake.
Location: Very centrally located in CT near to lots of main attractions
Well positioned hotel for exploring Cape Town as you can walk to the V&A, Sea Point and other areas. Clifton and Camps Bay easy taxi ride away. Small hotel but good sized rooms in 4 different buildings surrounding a pool with super comfy loungers! Breakfast great and includes cereals, pastries, fruit, smoothies, yoghurt etc. Also to order they do anything you want including amazing pancakes. They provide free tea and coffee station all day with a cake of the day which was greatly appreciated! Fully stocked reasonable bar which we made use of in the evenings pre dinner. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Our room had a super king size very comfy bed and tv with dvd player and huge collection of dvds. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to CT.

It felt like home.

Posted Sep 25, 2017
Pros: It is a welcome antidote to standard hotels.
Cons: Naothing-it has it's own personality and should stay that way.
Location: It's in Sea Point one of the safer areas of the city. You can walk to shops, the ocean and get a feel of what it would be like to live in Cape Town.
Great location with an easy walk down to the sea. Pretty rooms that are comfortable and well appointed. Cozy bar with home made cakes and Sherry anytime of the day or night. Helpful and friendly staff. But most importantly a soulful eyed Jack Russell named CoCo, who will greet you after a long day.

A fabulous place to stay

Posted Aug 20, 2017 on Hotels
We had an amazing stay at Blackheath Lodge. The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful. They arranged a day your for us and pointed us in the right direction when heading out on our own. We felt very safe here and the neighborhood was good. The room was very beautiful and had all the amenities one needs. The full breakfast and evening snacks were delicious. Everyone helped make us feel extremely comfortable.

This is the one..... Don't look anywhere else.

Posted Jul 17, 2017
Pros: Everything... especially the staff.
Cons: Nothing...Please keep it the same for next year...
Location: Location, is excellent if you can walk... If not hire a taxi they are cheap enough.
We loved this Hotel. The staff were incredible they couldn't do enough for us they really looked after us and made our stay a great one. The Hotel itself is not big but the rooms are a good size. It's very quaint with lots of little spots to hide and find solace if you wanted too which we loved. Most hotels are big, sterile, blank canvases but this was somehow soft, gentle, cosy, and had a homely feel to it. The breakfasts were excellent and the evening meals that we had were very good and wholesome. The rooms were kept well, warm and clean, bed and bathroom were great. Location, 3 -minute walk from local shops, 7- minutes’ walk from sea front and Park and 25 minute walk “along the sea front” to the Victoria and Alfred waterfront “tourist centre” which has everything that you want. Added extra, Sunbirds in the garden all day....

Excellent hotel with exceptional staff.

Posted Jul 12, 2017
Our stay at Blackheath Lodge was fantastic, we chose to stay there after travelling from their sister hotel in Hermanus and we were equally impressed with both. The welcome you receive from the staff is brilliant and they help you with knowledgeable itinerary suggestions and getting to know Cape Town. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. Our room had everything we needed and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast in the morning was also a great start to the day. I just wish we could have stayed longer!

Best lodge style place stayed

Posted Jul 9, 2017
I don't usually write reviews unless it's a terrible place that should be known to the future customers. But I must write a review for a complete different reason: Being a frequent world traveler and stayed in many five star and smart places, Blackheath Lodge impressed me with best services and comfortable living which my family enjoyed immensely. We will definitely recommend to our friends or stay there again if we come back!
