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!

My wife and I stayed Altona Lodge for six days over th Christmas period. The best accolade I can give the lodge is that it felt like home. Peter and Wendy were more than helpful, solving any issues that arose and helping with limportant local information about special events over the festive period. I will definitely be back!!

It was like staying in an old fashioned guest house - lots of character and charm. You can self cater but they have an excellent breakfast for 60R. The owners were very warm and helpful. Location was close to Main Road and transport.

I fudged the date a bit as it wouldn't let me go back as far Sept 2015, but it's been on my mind that I must come back to write a review....it was that good. In fact it's the only accommodation that I will be reviewing! I stayed here solo to see CapeTown for a few days before flying east...
