Blackheath Lodge rooms & rates

The house was originally built in 1890. We have altered and improved the property to reflect our location in Africa with an eclectic mix of contemporary, Victorian and colonial style furnishings. The fact that guest only stay a relatively short time allows our decoration and interiors to be a bit more risky than in a regular home. We have 12 elegantly decorated air-conditioned rooms with private en-suite bathrooms at the hotel as well as a Loft Suite with beautiful views. We offer free WiFi broadband, flat screen TV with a variety of satellite channels, DVDs, central mini-bars with a wide selection of complimentary teas and coffee as well as host of additional comforts to ensure your stay is to remember.

The location of Blackheath Lodge

Blackheath Lodge is right on the South Atlantic Ocean, in South Africa's second largest city, Cape Town. Only a short drive from Green Point Park, Cape Town Stadium, as well as Greenmarket Square, the Lodge is ideally situated for walks down the promenade, as well as visits to the city centre, the harbour, as well as the famous beaches like Clifton and Camps Bay.

When is the best time to visit Cape Town?

Summer in South Africa lasts from November to March, during which it is quite warm and dry. It is the most popular but also the most expensive time to visit. During the winter it does get rather wet, cool, and windy. However, neither season has any extreme temperatures, which makes Cape Town an easy all-year destination. We would recommend visiting during spring or fall as there will be fewer crowds and lower prices, all the while the weather is still good.
