... and Blackheath Lodge was a great intro to the warm reception we received throughout our travels along the Southern Cape. We had pre-booked for 6 nights and were a little concerned that this may be too long, but the delights of Cape Town mixed with the 5* hospitality received at Blackheath gave our holiday a fantastic kick start.

There are so many stellar reviews of this wonderful place that it is hard to know what to add. But how would you like the proprietor of your hotel to sit down with you as you are finishing a remarkable breakfast to give you tips and hints for the things he already knows you are doing that day?

Thats how I could review this lodge in a few words. Stayed here 2 years ago and ever since wanted to return. They made some very nice refurbishments and the level of sservice has been even improved further with Michelle and Jean-Claude's sister as a cook :) Perfect, cosey, friendly, homely....perfect. Keep it up guys, you rock.
