I have stayed in many resorts and hotels which are more luxurious than this place but this has to be one of the best places I stayed in.

The location is great. It's close to the main tourist attractions, I always felts safe.
There are lots of restaurants and other shops just around the corner.
For 50-60 rand in a cab you can get in 10 minutes to The waterfront or about 30-40 minutes relaxing walk along the water you can get to the waterfront too.
The room has hot everything you need for a single or double room. Big bed big shower , very clean lots of storage facilities, wifi , heating cooling and the whole complex feels very relaxing.
The bar area is very good and very reasonable prices .
Breakfast was very good and there are tea and coffee facilities throughout the day.
Above all the best thing about this place is the staff. Nothing is too hard and they will sort out and help you with anything you need.
Great value for the centre of Cape Town.
I will go back and stay there anytime.

One tip;
Book ahead!! This place is always booked , and for a good reason.

A darling little B & B in Capetown. Close enough to walk to the waterfront and far enough from the city center to be in a quite neighborhood. I read the reviews from Trip Advisor and we were lucky enouugh to secure rooms for our party of 4 couples. Everyone enjoied their stay. All of our rooms were different, and all equally lovely. The breakfasts were hearty or you could just have a snack from the breakfast bar if you were in a hurry. Chamay and Anthony made sure ALL OF YOU NEEDS were met. If you needed a reservation for dinner they were ON IT. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spic and span clean.

Room Tip: We had the villa suite, cute as could be, but up 19 spiral stairs. Our view of the city and bay wer...

My brother-in-law and I started our South African Adventure with a 3 day stay at Blackheath Lodge. Our stay was superb from the initial contact to the last minutes of departure. Great location -- an oasis in a busy exciting city. Antony, Charle, Jean Claude, Geoffrey, and least we forget, Coco were very welcoming and accommodating. Dining reservations - done; shopping locations - done; day trip arrangements - done; taxi's - done. Stellar breakfast including lots of selections for those of us who cannot indulge in eating eggs!

I do hope that my adventures will bring me back to Capetown South Africa because I would not stay anywhere else.

5 Diamond experience.

I found the hotel on internet when searching for convenient location for short stay in Cape Town. Being first time visitor to South Africa and Cape Town, mail correspondence with staff member Charle helped me a lot to plan my visit and made it memorable. She organized the taxi transfer to the lodge and back to the airport, proposed an excellent daily tour to Cape Point, a reliable taxi service, and even provide local mobile phone to carry with during our three day stay there. Location is great, five minutes to the sea and a short drive to enter Table Mountain station and Waterfront. Internet was free, rooms were ok and breakfast was good with a lot of food to choose from. Would definitely reccommend to those travellers who value good home atmosphere and great service more than the fancy of modern hotels. Yes, the price of stay is relatively high but taking into account all services provided by the staff, worth paying for.

Room Tip: Room 1 and 2 could be little noisy, try get the rooms in upper floor maybe even with a view to the s...

This lovely up-market B&B is very comfortable in a lovely neighbourhood in Cape Town that provides easy access to all the interesting sights in Cape Town - the rooms are comfortable even though some are smallish, the breakfasts substantial and excellent and the staff are charming and accommodating...a good place to use as a base to see this beautiful city and feel at home in all the best ways as well.
