We arrived early am to the lodge. Peter the owner was a most hospitable gentleman. Offered us coffee while we waited for our room. The room was one bedroom with a separate washroom and shower. Breakfast was an additional 50 rand. His omelet is great! Peter shared a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area in regards of things to... More

We stayed in the altona lodge for 9 days and it was just amazing. We visited over 25 countries and slept in many 4 -5 stars hotels, however, we enjoyed staying in the altona lodge much more. First of all, the stuff is friendly. People are open and willing to talk to you at any point. The owner Peter really... More

We stayed for three days, and it was lovely. Don't expect 4 stars, but is clean, room had a lot of space and beds were comfortable. Bathrooms with showers were near, always clean and we never had to wait. They change your towels whenever you need it and breakfast had a choice of breads with jam and butter, cheeses, eggs,...

Nice quiet and safe place. Close to Green Point and Waterfront. 5 min walk from different restaurants and shops. Free tea and coffee during the day. You can use the kitchen. Small nice clear rooms with free WiFi. Peter and his stuff are great!

Beautiful, clean and tranquil lodge. Very hospitable and helpful. It is centrally located and within walkable distance to the seafront. The only thing I thought they can work on is adding bathrooms within the rooms as opposed to them being communal.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on Altona. Adding some extra bathrooms to create more En-Suite rooms will be done soon. We will, however, still have Non En-Suite rooms on offer as we are able to offer these rooms at a much lower rate. We hope to welcome you back at Altona, should you... More

Excellent hosts at Altona lodge, very friendly and open. Rooms cleaned daily and towels provided. Comfortable beds and excellent breakfast on offer daily (extra charge). About 15 minute walk from the waterfront and close to some really great cafe's - especially for breakfast. Definitely recommend and would return.

The owners were extremely friendly and so helpful that even after ringing their door bell at an odd time of the night (because my wife had the key and she was still out and about) they still opened up for me with a smile. Great rooms and awesome service!
