Highly recommend Underberg for a great base from which to explore Cape Town. Anne is extremely helpful and will offer advise and make bookings. The guest house was spotless and in a lovely characterful colonial building. Breakfast is good with cereals, pastries, fruit and yoghurt as well as a cooked option. It is easy to get around CT from here... More

Wonderful place with great location, helpful owners and delicious breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights and each night went to a wonderful local restaurant (Miller's Thumb, Arnold's & Rick's Americana). The owners also recommended the wonderful food/craft market on Saturdays at the Old Biscuit Mill.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Underberg. Bruce and Anne are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious, well furnished, clean and comfortable. Underberg is well situated for access to the city centre and the Waterfront. Parking access is good. Breakfasts are very good.

Loved staying here! I looked at many hotels and this guest house was recommended. Perfect location off Kloof Street. Easy to get to via Uber - use Uber in Cape Town. Large room with huge bathroom - perfect for 2 people. Breakfast was yummy and abundant and Bruce is the perfect host. Would return!

This is a wonderful place to stay while in Cape Town. The location is walking distance to good restaurants and the hop-on hop-off Red Bus. The owners can book your tickets for the Red Bus. The newly renovated guest house is a wonderful hideaway -- pleasant rooms, good bed, good breakfast, and very helpful owners. Great place to stay.

Underberg is a large old refurbished house with beautiful white finishes. Large rooms. Great linen, lovely bathroom with a great shower. Hospitable, nothing overdone. Breakfast is average, but more than adequate. Free wifi (that works without any hassle). Great value in Tamboerskloof.
