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

My wife and I travelled to South Africa and landed in Cape Town on our first week. We had arranged to stay at Altona Lodge at the recommendation of a friend and our stay did not disappoint.

From the minute we arrived at Altona we felt at home. Great hosts, very comfortable rooms, excellent sleep quality, safe and secure. Location is fabulous, 10 minute walk to V & A Waterfront and a few minutes to great restaurants. When we are next in this beautiful city we won´t stay anywhere else! Thankyou Peter and your team.

The Altone Logde is a very nice place to stay during a visit in Capetown. The rooms are homely and clean. The showers and toilets are very clean. The host (Peter) is such a nice and funny man, he has lots of good advice and tips for Capetown and he really made our stay unforgettable.

We had a lot of fun at the Altona Lodge. The beds were amazingly comfortable and Peter was welcoming and accommodating. Would recommend this to young people traveling to Cape Town - great location in Greenpoint.

Peter's (owner- very helpful host) B&B is a great choice for somebody who visit Cape Town and want to stay in a safe, real clean, comfortable and full equipped rooms, in a friendly environment. In addition in this place everything is in walking distance (Green Point Park, Waterfront, and many restaurants).
