Great location in Green Point a 15 minute walk to the V & A waterfront and a little further into the city centre. The hotel is well run and the owner and staff are always there to help and advise. Tea and filter coffee available during your stay, and also facilities to cook if you so require.

We spent an amazing evening at Altona Lodge on old years eve. Peter was a wonderful host. The room was newly renovated and clean, and generally the accommodation and Lodge exceeded expectations. We look forward to visiting again.

It feels like being at home. The best poach eggs for breakfast. I will never stay anywhere else when in Cape Town and no, there is no place for the Argus for you as we book beforehand. Such friendly people and lovely crisp bedding.

Peter and Wendy were both proficient hosts. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were clean, and beds were comfortable. The property was close (walking distance) to restaurants and a park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Amenities

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Historically it has been very popular with Sport and School Groups and fits the pockets of International travellers who seeks budget accommodation without having to compromise their privacy. ... more   less
