An excellent guest house, in a safe district at a convenient distance from the important touristic highlights of Cape Town. Upon arrival we were assisted in carrying our luggage to our room. Having the maximum allowed weight for air travel that was a relief. The guest house offers different sizes of rooms. Our room was a rather modestly sized one.... More

Bruce and Anne are friendly and SOO very helpful. Every morning at breakfast they would help us with our plans and recommend great places. We had a room with a balcony and views were so nice. The room itself was very neat and well kept especially the bathroom/dressing area. There is english breakfast as well as South African cooked breakfast... More

what a wondeful experience we had at Underberg Guest House. We were welcomed by the couple. They put us first, they were so helpful in advising us on other activities we could engage in. The service, cleanliness, warmth is 10/10.

Great stay thank you. The location, cleanliness and hospitality was excellent. I will definitely use Underberg again whether its business or pleasure. Perhaps the one drawback for anyone staying solo over a weekend is that all channels on DSTV are not available.

Anne and Bruce were welcoming hosts. Bruce showed us around the guesthouse when we arrived, including a stop at the honor bar (where people could pour themselves a drink and note it in the book.) The place is lovely and nicely appointed with good art and antiques. The location of the guesthouse was in a quiet safe area of CT... More

We stayed at Underberg 2 nights only and I wish we could have spent more time there. Anne was very welcoming and friendly. We arrived early morning and our room was ready ahead of time and Anne kindly offered us delicious breakfast. She was also very kind as to give us a lift to our car rental when we failed... More

I would not hesitate to recommend this guest house. Nothing is missing here. The rooms are very nice. We stayed in a more expensive unit, and one that was the least costly. Both excellent. The buffet breakfast is very good. Eggs prepared according to your preference. The services provided by the hosts, e.g. restaurant recommendations and reservations, very generous. And... More

Underberg was great! Anne and Bruce were lovely hosts - friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and lovely. The location was ideal - easy walking distance to anywhere we could want to go - the waterfront, kloof st, long st., the district 6 museum, bokapp - anywhere really! Anne also recommended a fantastic restaurant (Miller's Thumb) that was a... More

This trip was the second time staying with Bruce and Anne at the Underberg. And it was as delightful as the first time. They are both energetic, engaging people who go out of their way to organize trips, provide information, and just generally make it a wonderful time / stay. We had three different "excursions" that we asked them to... More
