I thought the assistance and help was beyond approach. I had help with my suitcase carrying it up the steep steps and when tired and hungry having just arrived, and too tired to go out, an omelet was produced for me, so very kind. I would certainly stay at Altona Lodge again next time I require a B&B in Cape...

I must honestly say I was a bit unsure after my booking and in front of my visit as well. But after the first night I felt like home. Nice room, everything was super clean and everybody is absolutely friendly

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Altona and loved every single moment of it. Peter and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. From providing useful information to ordering taxis to allowing us to print tickets. The place itself is located on a quiet street about 15mins walk from the city centre and port. There is a small...

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms with a shared bathroom (paid less for it), you can also stay in ensuite rooms. Very clean, modern, large TV, great wifi, kitchen was large. Breakfast was amazing. But best of all was Peter and his brilliant staff, could not recommend this guys highly enough! Thank you.

This is the perfect place for a busy visit to Cape Town. Great location - 15min walk from Waterfront. Bedrooms, bathrooms and all communal areas spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and exceptionally helpful when organising transport and things to do. I will be returning to Cape Town and when I do I will be returning to Altona Lodge.

I have lived nearby in Green Piont 40 years ago and was pleasantly surprised at what was on offer at Altona Lodge, by way of reasonable tariffs, overall condition of the lodge, friendly staff reception, and although apprehensive to leave the car parked in the street two blocks away, it was perfectly safe. All round good value for your money...

Our stay in Altona Lodge was very pleasant. The people working there are very helpful and make their best to please the customers. The house is lovely, with a nice patio inside. The room are pretty small but very cozy!
