Reviewed 26 May 2014

I love Altona Lodge - my house by the sea.
I did not used a hired car, instead I walked and used the Myciti bus.
I found the Altona Lodge perfectly situated for my needs - walking distance to the beach, restaurants.
They suited my budget brilliantly. I will definitely go again.

Brilliant caring from Peter!. From the moment of arrival, organizing of taxis, booking our follow on hotel, looking after our luggage whilst off on a bike tour and especially getting up at 4 in the morning to look after all his guests who were heading off to run the Two Oceans! A fantastic experience.

It was very good stay at a very central location, the best part of the stay was it was real value for money. and as everyone mentioned, Peter is an extremely friendly person :).

Most of the attraction are within 8 to 9 KM from this place

I really enjoyed my stay at Altona. The owner, Peter, is very kind and welcoming, he kept me informed of all the exciting options for the first-time visitor. As well as good tips to save me money. The rooms are well maintained and clean, as are the bathroom facilities, which are shared. The place feels very cosy and comfortable, and is located in a safe, quiet suburb. The location is fantastic as it is in the Greenpoint area, very near the Stadium and the V&A Waterfront. Take a walk down Main Road for amazing cafes and restaurants. Also Seapoint, Bantry Bay, Camps Bay and Clifton are literally a short drive down Main Road. As is the city and the famous Long street in the opposite direction. Be sure to check out Greenmarket Square, for amazing hand-crafted wares.

A great little place with wonderful hosts, beautiful staff (especially Moffat) and a very homely feel. Ask Peter to cook you one of his omelets for breakfast - they should win awards! Handy to the city and everything else you might need. Safe and quiet. As a woman travelling alone I was very comfortable in this environment and will definitely be staying again next time - a bargain for the money.

Our stay at Altona Lodge was absolute brilliant. Where to start...? Nice, clean B&B in excellent location, good breakfast, and great value for money, especially when converted to pounds. :-) But what makes this place special is Peter and Craig, who run the place. They were super-helpful from the moment we arrived, phoning around to rent a car, giving great tips for really good restaurants (of which there are plenty just a 5-minute walk away), and just generally being a wellspring of information. And they're lots of fun, too. I probably learned more interesting stories about South Africa chatting with them than anywhere else. After just a day it felt like staying with friends. If I get a chance to visit Cape Town again, I know I won't stay anywhere else. Thanks for a great time, Peter and Craig!
