We had a great time. The lodge close to most of the tourists attractions in Cape Town. Walking distance to V&A waterfront. Mark is a very good host even the staff were nothing less than great. The breakfast (hot grills) was scrumptious and the buffet continental breakfast had so much to choose from especially fresh fruits. They just need to... More

The stay at Altona Logde was really nice. Peter help in a lot if we needed a car or to find something in the city. He was helpful and really easy to talk to. The location was at green point which is a really nice area. It is close to everything.

Be hosted in this cozy and warm lodge was one of the best surprises we had during our visit to Cape town. The hotel is located in a very calm area from the town centre, about 10 min walking from the stadium and the V&A Waterfront. The rooms are amazingly big and confortable, as well as very clean (as is... More

The lodge was kept clean and comfortable, with lovely friendly staff. Breakfast was R60 but for as much as you could with an amazing spread of hot and cold. Excellent location within in minutes walk of the water front through the gardens.

This was such a nice guesthouse. Peter and Wendy were so welcoming and helpful. The location is really good- pretty close to the V&A Waterfront and only a 10-15 minute walk to one of the city tour bus stops. The staff were friendly, the bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was good. I really enjoyed my stay here.

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!

Altona’s biggest advantage is its location. The accommodation offered is at ‘entry level’ and we frequently refer to it as ‘two steps up from a Backpackers’. We offer comfortable and clean surroundings. The house, having 18 bedrooms, is ideal for small groups.
