“Perfect place in rural neighborhood”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in December 2013. And we were positively surprised. The House is very comfortable, spacious and very pleasant (interesting design). It is very clean and very well equipped with self-catering utensils. There is outside ``braai``, patio and well maintained garden. The neighborhood looks rural, quite and safe.
The location of the Lodge is very good for visiting all the attractions on Panorama Route and and Blyde River Gorge. A short distance (a few minutes by car) to Graskop and its shops and restaurants.
So no complaints.

People there are friendly and helpful.
The location is good walking distance to waterfront and bus station.
Overall, it is just like a home.

a few minutes from Waterkant where there is always nice activity the Altona is super quiet and still close to the action. Peter, who runs the place, is a super friendly guy who tries to help out looking up information and the rest of the staff is friendly too.

I really liked my visit and stay at Altona. The team led by Peter were great, very caring and helpful. They gave us the support we needed. The wireless connectivity was a plus as it made it possible to be in communication with the rest of the world. I will visit again God willing. Cheers to Wendy, Moffat and Peter you were awesome!!!!

Rustic and relaxed place to stay. Quiet suburban location a 15 minute walk to the hop-on/hop-off bus which is the best way to see Capetown. Rooms a bit dark and cold, but clean. Good value breakfast available.

It's a beautiful place to help one unwind. The room I was in was amazing and the service was good. It's not easy to locate the lodge is the street which is in is not listed on the map(Which I got from the help desk at V&A Waterfront).
