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.

I really enjoyed my stay at Altona. The owner, Peter, is very kind and welcoming, he kept me informed of all the exciting options for the first-time visitor. As well as good tips to save me money. The rooms are well maintained and clean, as are the bathroom facilities, which are shared. The place feels very cosy and comfortable, and... More

A great little place with wonderful hosts, beautiful staff (especially Moffat) and a very homely feel. Ask Peter to cook you one of his omelets for breakfast - they should win awards! Handy to the city and everything else you might need. Safe and quiet. As a woman travelling alone I was very comfortable in this environment and will definitely... More

Our stay at Altona Lodge was absolute brilliant. Where to start...? Nice, clean B&B in excellent location, good breakfast, and great value for money, especially when converted to pounds. :-) But what makes this place special is Peter and Craig, who run the place. They were super-helpful from the moment we arrived, phoning around to rent a car, giving great... More
