I would definitely recommend Altona Lodge. The staff were superb and went above and beyond. The place was spotless and very comfortable. The location is also very central. A huge thank you to Peter, Wendy and all your staff

My six day stay at this property was incredible. I was very happy with every last detail in regard to my experience. The owner Peter and the manager Wendy became like friends and they went overboard to make me feel welcome and to help me out as much as they could. The breakfasts beyond words and Moffat the cook was so much fun to chat with. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the location is great if you enjoy walking. I was able to the walk along the ocean, to the shopping area, the stadium and the downtown area. I am planning to return with my wife and spend a month at this property next winter.
