“Best service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

It's a beautiful place to help one unwind. The room I was in was amazing and the service was good. It's not easy to locate the lodge is the street which is in is not listed on the map(Which I got from the help desk at V&A Waterfront).

-Quick response to e-mail
-Friendly and helpful!
-Free WIFI is a plus
-If we could get DSTV in the rooms would be better
-Maybe adding a coffee section that we may order snacks and coffee that's out of food hours

Right in the Eclectic Area of Capetown with lovely reastaurants and bars.
Very helpful staff in a refurbished Colonial era House.
Great Double room, though small was excellently furbished with all amenities and modern shower and accessories.
Breakfast was included at a nice full service reastaurant just down the street so you could enjoy anything and just pay the extra.
Overall very clean, quite and convenient and would stay again

Everything about the Altona was just right - it's location, close (but not too close to be noisy) to Main Road in the Green Point area, the building, wonderful rambling old colonial era house and garden, excellent breakfast, and the owner/manager Peter bent over backwards to help with every request. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for a room at the back or the front for reasonable views - those on the side just look across to...

Close to the stadium in Greenpoint and V&A Waterfront with helpful guests and owners. Recommended if you're visiting Cape Town and need a place to stay. Everything was so central (well within walking distance) and the beds are very comfy.
