Located in a quiet residential area, Altona lodge is homey and comfortable, with convenience of shops and restaurants within walking distance. A nice 30-min walk past the stadium brings one to the V&A Waterfront. Peter was great with pre-arrival communication and he and Wendy were wonderful hosts along with the rest of the lodge staff.

Altona lodge was extremely accommodating ! Wendy is so sweet and amazing. She really helped out two ladies who had no phone and needed assistance. The place itself is clean and is within walking distance to several great places to eat. It is also close to the water.

We stayed here two nights. Altona is located near the main street with lots of trendy eating establishments and easy walking distance to the the waterfront. Yet in a quiet neighborhood. Wendy, Peter and the others who run this place are friendly and professional. . The rooms are small, but prices are very reasonable. Peters omelets are to die for.
