This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to feel at home. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and have the most comfortable beds. The staff is incredible and you feel like a part of the family rather than a regular guest. You also don't feel like a tourist staying in Green Point. You can have a more local experience in this neighborhood, but it's still very accessible to anywhere you want to go. I highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Nothing fancy, but clean and very comfortable. Excellent staff! Why bother staying at an impersona...

A very clean and cosy place to stay with good breakfast, wifi, hot water etc that you would expect, but above other places in this range because of the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff! Great location too.

Every staff and management of this B&B place was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help book our preferred tours and make sure that we enjoy our time in Cape Town. When we were trying to book the local citysightseeing tour online which appeared to have trouble processing non-South Africa issued credit cards, Peter (the owner) offered to use his own credit card to help us book the tour. Wendy (the manager) was very personable and helpful. It’s no surprise for us to notice that quite a few guests there were returning guests who came from other parts of South Africa to Cape Town for a weekend getaway. The B&B’s convenient location to the public transportation/restaurants/park/beach, reasonable rates and helpful staff have made our 3-day stay in Cape Town wonderful and unforgettable. We highly recommend it.

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 :).
