Great place to stay in Cape Town

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 06 Oct 2023
From the moment we arrived the team made us feel both like VIPs and at the same time family. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the attention to detail is throughout from decoration of rooms to the way breakfast is served.
We would highly recommend.
It's location makes walking to the waterfront possible and once back it was beautifully quiet.

We had such an amazing experience at Blackheath with Karin and all her team. They were all just fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us- so very helpful + attentive.

Beautifully decorated hotel with individual boutique bedrooms.

Within easy access to the waterfront and main city centre.

Highly recommend a stay here- we will definitely be back ❤️❤️❤️

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel itself is a lovely little collection of rooms and bungalows around a pool, with comfortable, calming common rooms. The rooms are sizable enough, with huge plush beds and lovely private balconies. But it's the staff that make this place. Godfrey, Rihanu, Karen were all fabulous, as were the many staff serving breakfasts. We were lucky enough to spend a day on a tour with manager Jackie, who is an absolutely delightful new addition. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

We traveled with another couple, their suggestion to lodge us in the two bedrooms, two bath suite were the perfect accommodations for us. The suite was beautifully decorated with a kitchen, dining room and living room, very spacious and very comfortable.
The 'staff' quickly became more like old friends, Karin, Riano, Robbin, Jeremy and Pete. They could NOT do enough for you! Directions, restaurant reservations, suggestions, always willing to stop and chat, their restaurant suggestions were fantastic.
The rooms, breakfast area, bar area, decor and outdoor areas are all quiet, lovely and comfortable.
The Lodge also arranged our transportation from the airport and Jerome was so welcoming to us on our first trip to Cape Town and didn't mind answering all our questions!
Breakfast was delicious, lots of choices and when we returned from a long day of touring, coffee/tea and a bite of cake was available!
Everyone welcomed us warmly; it was as if we were in their home. BHL is an upscale, boutique, hotel in a central location. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

We SO enjoyed our stay and let me say all the staff, Karin, Robyn (Robin) and the gents up front were so welcoming and helpful they made us so feel at home.
The property throughout is so tastefully appointed and the villa was a 5+ star apartment at a very reasonable value. We felt like it was a home rather than a hotel. The rooms had authentic artwork a working wood burning fireplace and high end appliances.
The breakfasts were such a great start to our days and so delicious from the continental offering to the fresh made eggs and coffee.
Your caring and attention to detail is rare in the service industry to feel so appreciated and at home in a foreign country. My wife didn’t want to leave you guys!
The staff to guest ratio i very high and everything was on point from late checkins, security to arranging transportation when needed.

Blackheath Lodge is a rare find and we will sing your praises to any potential US visitors heading your way.
Thanks again and hope to be back sooner than later!

What a delightful stay! The team at Blackheath was unfailingly thoughtful, friendly and so very helpful. From first walking in to the smell of freshly baked cookies to Karin arranging the perfect township tour for us on short notice on our last day, it couldn’t have been a more perfect experience. They even surprised us with champagne on ice when they discovered we were celebrating an anniversary. Breakfasts were superb, beds amazing, bathrooms sparkling, and location was perfect. And it was a bonus to have the really comfy common area to enjoy a glass of wine and chat with fellow travelers. One of our best lodging experiences ever!
