More about Blackheath Lodge
Blackheath lodge Cape town
Spent 3 weeks in South Africa, and stayed 1 week at Blackheath Lodge in Seapoint Cape Town.
The guest house was clean, modern, and efficiently run.There was excellent attention to detail and the staff were friendly and very helpful.
Breakfasts were taken outside on the terrace overlooking the pool.
There was an array of breakfast choices including fresh fruit, cereals, pastries as well as bacon and eggs.
The guest house makes an excellent base to explore Capetown, but also offers a relaxing atmosphere to chill and relax.
Hospitality can't be beaten
We were greeted by staff as we pulled up outside and then Lisa, who runs the place along with her brother Anthony gave us some information on places to visit and restaurants to eat at. She proved to be a font of knowledge regarding Cape Town and surrounding area. Her buffet style breakfast were excellent, home cooked and very fresh. Try the fruit smoothies, they are superb.
Generally, nothing was too much trouble for Lisa and her staff. The rooms are comfortable and the premises are in what appears to be a safe area and there is a night security guard on duty. I would definitely recommend Blackheath Lodge if you are visiting Cape Town.
Lovely guesthouse, wonderful owners and staff
This was our first trip to South Africa and what made our stay truly fabulous was the hosts and staff at Blackheath Lodge. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts from finding and booking us the exactly the kind of restaurants in Cape Town we wanted to helping us securely park the 1959 classic car we rented. Sea Point felt safe to walk around but as the main sights and best restaurants are spread right across the city, we tended to use the cheap (less than £5 on average across the city), safe and friendly taxis to get around. Therefore, it was a great location as it was only 10 minutes taxi to all the things we wanted to do.
If you’re looking for a great fun B&B, impeccable, genuinely caring but not intrusive service then this is a great choice. When we left, we felt we were leaving friends behind.
Really honest friendlyness.
We, me and my girlfriend, started our first stay in South Africa at Blackheath Lodge and enjoyed this total honest friendliness we got from staff and also from the owners very very much. It´s easy to see that all of them do there jobs because they like it. Additionally we got the best tips to go and also the bookings we need for it.
But it´s not only the people, because the lodge itself is originally that what we expected for Cape Town.
After our stay there we allways got disapointed at all the other, also nice but not in this league, lodges wee stood.
Thanks again Lisa, Antony, Jean-Claude and all the others.

Carlsberg don't make guest houses...
...but if they did, this would probably be the best guest house in the world.
My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights from the 23 November 2007. We booked a deluxe room with a sea view and were not disappointed. The style and decor were of the highest order, the room was spacious and the service second to none. Antony, John, Lisa and Jean-Claude made us feel right at home and nothing was too much trouble for them. Antony and John really looked after us and helped to plan our days to perfection, never once putting us wrong either with restaurant choices or when to visit Cape Town's big attractions - and a special thanks for recommending the Cod Father in Camps Bay for my wife's birthday. I can't emphasise how good the service is at Blackheath Lodge. The breakfasts were always fresh and fantastic, from John's pancakes at the weekend to the individual quiche's that were divine!
Much of our time was spent sightseeing, but the staff always helped to plan our days and recommended places to go (and avoid!) It's a stone's throw from the new Green Point stadium so I'm looking forward to hopefully returning here in 2010.

The worse lodge in South Africa!
From reading earlier reviews we were expecting to have three marvelous days in this lodge at the end of our fortnights tour of South Africa. Our first night was spent in a very nice room by the front door, which meant that it was rather noisy. However the owner, Andrew, had previously advised us that we had to move out on our second night to room 11. The breakfast was rather limited but okay but nothing exceptional when compared to the other 7 lodges we had stayed in.
Arriving late on the second night we were shown to our new room and were shocked to find that it was in the basement. The attendant beat a hasty retreat and left us to our first impressions of the three very small rooms. The entrance room had a pouffe (there were no chairs) on which were two dirty towels. The bed totally filled the second room, while the bathroom was dingy and cramped. Worse was the ceiling height especially in the bathroom which was about 69 inches high. As we had arrived late we decided that we had no option but to remain there (Andrew was hosting a dinner which saved him from our immediate complaints).
The following morning we rapidly departed from this claustrophobic room and left without breakfast and booked ourselves into a cheaper but much nicer hotel for our last night.
Feel-good-lodge no 1
Anthony is the most effective and amiable host you can imagine and his staff are of the same kind. We are looking forward to enjoying somehow, sometime and there.

Lovely place, great breakfast, and excellent service
Via a website we found this lovely B&B. The place was quite fully booked, but we were able to get a night in their "overflow" room, and the day after we could use a normal room.
The overflow room is a small room with a low ceiling, however the room was very cosey. In the end my girlfriend preffered the small room over the big room. (I think all the rooms where very nice)
Antony helped us alot during our stay. He was great help in further planning our stay in South Africa. Helped us get a rental car (for a good price)
The breakfast was absolutely brilliant. I attached a picture of the breakfast table. Great homemade apple crumble, and bread, quiche's, great fresh fruits, juices, smoothies etc.
We have stayed in South Africa for two weeks. We have seen many B&B's, but this one was undoubtly the best.
A great place to stay in Cape Town
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved our stay at Blackheath. It truly is the cutest property located in one of the nicest and most convenient neighborhoods in Cape Town. Antony and John are wonderful hosts - warm and entertaining and they arranged reservations for us at the finest tables in the best restaurants in Cape Town. All in all it was a terrific experience and we will recommend Blackheath to all our friends who visit Cape Town.
