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.

We stayed at the Underberg guesthouse from April 25-30 2015 and could not have chosen a better place. The owners did everything to make us comfortable and informed us of sightseeing, restaurants etc. Very nice breakfast in beautiful restored mansion. Thanks Anne and Bruce!

The Underberg Guest House is certainly one of the best guesthouses we ever stayed in. It's beautiful, neat and clean and decorated with class. Excellent location and security. Anne, the hostess is very friendly and informative and the breakfast is great! I wish we could have spend more time there. Will definitely visit again.
