Amazing place to visit while in Kaapstad. Great rooms and super friendly staff. They will help you with anything you need and will make sure your stay is as pleasant ad it can possibly be. I especially like the breakfast, anything from fresh fruit to full house eggs

Arrived at the Blackheath Lodge just as we found out South Africa had been moved on to the red list. In this moment of panic and stress , Riano was calm and professional and supportive in the first few hours. When we got sorted, we knew we would be staying for 2 nights (instead of 4 nights) and we could enjoy this gem of a hotel. We were in the loft en-suite room which was spacious , large king size bed , large walk in shower and a balcony. As a welcome there was a bottle of wine and ferrero rocher chocolates. The rest of the hotel is quality and comfortable to be in. After a good night sleep , the breakfast area is light and airey and the food was cooked to perfection. The hotel is close to great restaurants ( although we only had time to try one) and a short Uber ride to the V&A Dock area. We will return to Cape Town some day and this hotel will be the only one we will look to book

I stayed here for about two weeks on my own and absolutely loved everything about it. All of the staff are really friendly and they make sure you feel at home (or even better ;) ). Next to that the rooms are excellent. Clean, big, good facilities and some have nice balconies or bigger outside area's. Blackheath Lodge is really centrally located in Seapoint and everything is really easy to reach from here. I also did some great excursions via them wich I definitely recommend. I first booked a room room for 4 nights and after that extented it to about 2 weeks because I just loved it! Thanks alot everyone from Blackheath Lodge.

It was a very nice stay at Blackheath Lodge especially due to the staff. Would like to especially mention dear Riano who was most caring. The rooms would need a bit of refurbishment, but overall it‘s a very cosy and lovely place. Breakfast was very nice. In case of any questions there is always someone to help. Blackheath Lodge is located perfectly to reach everything by either car, walk or Uber.

From friendly, professional staff, to top class amenities, I can’t fault Blackheath lodge on one thing. The location is perfect, in the heart of the city, but hidden away from the noise. If you have kids, they will love it as well. Karin and her team went out of their way to make sure we had the best experience. We will for sure be returning.
