The 4 star Blackheath Manor Guest House provides secure, luxurious accommodation in an established garden setting, creating a comfortable and relaxed environment to work or to relax in after a demanding business day. We are situated in the peaceful, tree-lined Blackheath, a suburb of Johannesburg on the lower slopes of the Northcliff Hill, within walking distance of the Cresta Shopping Centre. Each guest room is fully fitted with an air-conditioner, under floor heating, en-suite bathroom (including a bath, shower and double basins), a hairdryer, colour TV, DVD player and DSTV, tea & coffee facilities and a mini bar. A board room (seating 14 to 16 people) is also available and is ideal for those brainstorming or development sessions away from the distractions of the office. The conference room as well as our guest rooms have internet access. Secure, off-street parking is provided to all guests and visitors. All guest rooms can be accessed from a beautiful courtyard area with a heated swimming pool, which is available to all guests and visitors. For the discerning tourist we offer suburban comfort and peace in a professional establishment that is close to a number of shopping centres, business parks and tourist attractions. To name but a few, local attractions or places of interest within a 100km radius include the Sterkfontein Caves, Maropeng, the Wonder Caves, the Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve, as well as Gold Reef City, the Apartheid Museum, Sun City. Trust us to take care of all your leisure bookings, travel arrangements and transfers. Accommodation: 6 luxury, en-suite rooms, each with its own entrance opening onto the courtyard with a heated swimming pool. Every room has been furnished with solid dark wood furniture and include a queen size bed, ample build-in cupboards, a desk and chair as well as a comfortable easy chair. Each room has air conditioning, as well as under floor heating in both the bedroom and bathroom. Other features include:• 52cm TV & DVD player• full hospitality DSTV bouquet• dressing table with large mirror & additional full length mirror. • hair dryer• mini bar• electronic safe. It is, however, the bathrooms that will truly impress the discerning traveller. Apart from the bath and the large, separate shower, double basins are set on either side of the bath along with ample shelving for guests’ toiletries, etc. With power outages a reality in South Africa the possibility of a cold shower is very real – but not at Blackheath Manor! Our hot water system is based on sophisticated gas- fired geysers which will continue to provide hot water even after prolonged power outages.An uninterrupted power supply (UPS) system has also been installed which will ensure that each room has at least one light and one plug point (dedicated to laptops) that will continue to operate when there is a power cut. Lounge & Dining Room. Guests are invited to relax in the spacious lounge where they can read, watch TV, join other guests for a chat or entertain their visitors. Adjacent to the lounge is the dining room, bar and patio where scrumptious traditional or fusion breakfast is served to guests and where our conference delegates can enjoy their meals. After a hard day’s work (or fun!), guests can enjoy drinks in the relaxed atmosphere of the informal bar, or on the patio while watching the sun set over our beautiful, landscaped garden. Board Room: Our fully air-conditioned board room, which comfortably seats 14 to 16 people around a boardroom table, has a folding door which opens one complete wall leading onto the courtyard and swimming pool, ensuring a relaxed yet private atmosphere to work in. Full internet access as well as DSTV is available and any equipment you may require (data projectors, TV sets, screens, white boards etc.), will be arranged. Tea/coffee and lunch is provided.

Again, we had a great stay at the Blackheath Manor. Alwyn is a fantastic host and a walking wikipedia: we learnt so much about the SA culture and history. Whatever you ask for, Alwyn comes up with a solution. His staff is very reliable, charismatic and professional. It was not our first stay, and it was not out last one. We had a super time, thank you.

My father and I had to go up for Business and I must say we were very happy whilst we were there. Very accommodating and friendly and willing to assist. All we needed was a place to get back to to relax amidst the business of JHB and that is what we got. Would definitely use again and refer on, for Business or Pleasure! Thank you !

Hi Janis Thank you for the positive review! We really enjoyed hosting you and getting to know a little bit about your country that we would normally not have done. Although it is mid summer in the northern hemisphere and mid winter here in South Africa, we were surprised to see you swimming in our pool! You explained that the water temperature back home in mid summer is colder than our swimming pool water in mid winter! Meeting interesting people and learning new things from our guests is what makes our job so worthwhile. We hope to see you again - maybe in our summer?!!! Kind regards Alwyn
