I really enjoyed my stay at Altona Lodge. It was the perfect accommodation, good value for money. The facilities are great and the rooms are perfectly decorated and cleaned. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is superb too as it´s near waterfront. I would definitely recommend this place ;)

The owners are really welcoming. We stayed in a perfect appartment in the garden, because they were refurbishing the lodge. Location is not far from the V&A Waterfront, and there is free parking available. Loved the breakfast! There are restaurants nearby but one night we ordered some food from Ocean's Basket, really good!

The Rose room was lovely and spacious. We will definitely stay at Altona Lodge again. Very friendly service. (A very small irritation was the one fork in the kitchen of the annex when you want to eat in your room).

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Altona. Peter and Wendy were wonderful hosts and provided many great recommendations for food, drink, and things to do. Though they are renovating, we were never disturbed by the construction. The rooms are perhaps small for Cape Town, but seemed similar to most of the hotels I've stayed at in Europe and... More

First met Peter & Wendy in 2015 while on a "short stay" visit - nothing is too much to ask. Close to all the tourist attractions, safe parking, loads of photographic opportunities with all the historic buildings in the area. This year we stayed for a month, Altona turned into 'home', love the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Nothing beats... More

Altona lodge is in an excellent location in green point, very convenient to get to waterfront and lots of nearby restaurants. The accommodation was clean and rooms were comfortable. Even got my room upgraded for free. Staff were friendly and helpful. So good value for money.
