Great place to stay in and out of season, its a home away from home. Very peaceful and accessible to main facilities which is a very important aspect of my part time schooling. I have and will continue to recommend this B&B. Great Work! - Thabang

Very friendly and helpful personell. Beds very comfortable and clean environment. Great location. Very noisy, could here every movement. It would be nice to have fridge and coffee making facilities in rooms. I think its a bit misleading to advertise the property as anything else but a slight upgrade from a hostel. Minimal personal space in the kitchen as always... More

A perfect lodge for our quick trip to Cape Town. Excellent location near the waterfront, comfortable room, and a fine breakfast. Our hosts were very helpful with airport transfers and getting around. A great value for a low price.

This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to feel at home. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and have the most comfortable beds. The staff is incredible and you feel like a part of the family rather than a regular guest. You also don't feel like a tourist staying in Green Point. You can have a... More

A very clean and cosy place to stay with good breakfast, wifi, hot water etc that you would expect, but above other places in this range because of the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff! Great location too.

Every staff and management of this B&B place was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help book our preferred tours and make sure that we enjoy our time in Cape Town. When we were trying to book the local citysightseeing tour online which appeared to have trouble processing non-South Africa issued credit cards, Peter (the... More

I love Altona Lodge - my house by the sea. I did not used a hired car, instead I walked and used the Myciti bus. I found the Altona Lodge perfectly situated for my needs - walking distance to the beach, restaurants. They suited my budget brilliantly. I will definitely go again.

Brilliant caring from Peter!. From the moment of arrival, organizing of taxis, booking our follow on hotel, looking after our luggage whilst off on a bike tour and especially getting up at 4 in the morning to look after all his guests who were heading off to run the Two Oceans! A fantastic experience.
