Perfect place to be in. Ghouse is close to a safe and beautiful area, green point and sea point, not too far from V&A Waterfront. Room was comfy and quiet, ideal after hectic days and long nights out enjoying the African vibe.

Nice property in attractive quiet back street. Room was small and could be stuffy in hot weather but fortunately it was not as hot as it can be when we were there. Our hosts were friendly & helpful and the breakfast was good

We had a lovely two night stay at Altona Lodge, Peter was very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated. Altona Lodge is very well situated for visiting Cape Town, only minutes from the Waterfront, lots of restaurants close by.

I was proud to have my friend from Prague see this sort of accommodation in SA. The owner, Peter, was in touch all the time and Wendy gave us good advice on our travels in and around Cape Town. Much appreciated.

Second time for us. Very nice quality/price connection.Staff is very kind and friendly. Rooms are nice and clean and have a safe. This year we didn't have breakfast, but I remember it is great. Location is very quiet and safe and ideal to visit Cape Town. We will go back next time we'll visit Cape Town!
