Perfect location, safe and with the most helpful couple-owners we ever met! When we ever come back to this fantastic city, we would always choose this guest house again for sure! "Honest bar" made our evenings absolutely fantastic! Thanks again for the best Cape Town experience :)

We were really well looked after by Ann who organised everything - collected from the airport, given guide books for a walk up table mountain and booked on various tours and trips. Room was fabulous, breakfast superb. Ate in local restaurants - great value! Stay here!

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!
