The lodge is perfect for the Busy Executive who needs a safe, comfortable place to stay while conducting business in Cape Town. One of the most comfortable beds I have slept in for year and I travel around the world. As a busy female executive I find larger Hotels a problem with males interfering etc. In Altona Lodge I felt... More

I really enjoyed my stay there, Peter and his wife really made me feel comfortable, home away from home. They're are really the best, affordable and reasonable. Altona Lodge is the best and you just won't regret it
