Review of Blackheath Lodge Cape Town

Blackheath Lodge is a lovely guesthouse situated on Cape Town's Atlantic Seaboard, just under Signal Hill. It's a beautiful Victorian house which has been lovingly restored by the owners Antony and John. There are around 10 rooms in the guesthouse, a nice living room area, pretty garden area with a small heated swimming pool and a verandah overlooking the pool for breakfast or drinks.

Our room was in the attic and very spacious with a big king bed, good sized bathroom with a shower, lots of cupboard and drawer space, air conditioning and a reasonably priced mini bar/honesty bar.

Here are a couple of photos of our room:

Blackheath Lodge is in a nice quiet residential area and it is a pleasant 30 minute walk to the V&A Waterfront or around a R25-30 taxi fare.

The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful and Antony made it his business in the morning to help all the guests plan their day, make bookings for people and suggest itineraries. The other staff were also very good and Jean-Claude the security guy was very pleasant.

Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, fresh baking (yummy cinnamon croissants), toast, muesli, coffee, tea, juice and smoothies.

Over all we had a fantastic stay here and I highly recommend it for anyone staying in Cape Town.
