We found Altona to be clean , comfortable and all the staff and management very friendly and helpful. The use of the kitchen to warm food and help ourselves to tea and coffee any time of day or night is a big plus.

Our room was quite small and close to the communal bathrooms so it was a bit noisy. The shared bathrooms were clean. Breakfast was...

This is a nice B&B close to WaterFront. The staff is very friendly. The room was clean and quiet, no mosquitos, I did not use it but you have the possiblity to cook yourselves our meals (kitchen access). The breakfast is very good.

Great clean and very central accommodation, walking distance to the Waterfront. We shared a room with our 2 adult sons and had to leave very early in the morning. Peter was very helpful in greeting us, showing us around and ensuring we were comfortable. We found the rooms simple, functional and exceptionally clean with lovely fresh linen. Would definitely return...

What a gem. Peter and staff make you feel so welcome. From Wendy at the front desk to the cleaning staff. Rooms clean. Service and breakfast good. Situated close to the V A Waterfront easy access. I did all my sightseeing using the V & A as a base. Would stay there again.

Altona lodge is very convenient for visiting the Waterfront, the CBD or Mouille Point. Peter is a charming host and the full kitchen was great for cooking a live lobster from Hout Bay. We had a bit of noise from construction work, and in summer the lack of a/c could be an issue.

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
