Last month my husband and I took our first trip to South Africa. A great travel agent recommended the Underberg and was able to book us for 5 nights in room number 7. We had a few tense moments when we missed our connection from Joberg to Cape Town but Bruce was patiently waiting for us when we arrived close... More

Location excellent for Long St/eateries/ Table Mountain etc.Place itself - very well decorated/furnished/ with all facilities on tap - wifi which worked unlike other guest houses, excellent shower and more than enough plugs. Breakfast delicious especially home-made jam. Best of all, the delightful couple who run it. Helpful on every level with taxis, advice for the tourist, booking restaurants but... More

We began our tour of the Cape in Capetown and couldn't of chosen a better place to stay. Anne the owner was so helpful - her assistance got us off to a great holiday. Don't go to a 'faceless' hotel - stay here! Great breakfast, spotlessly clean and assistance/advice to make bookings for Robben Island/Table Mountain - cannot recommend highly... More

I can honestly say I have never felt more welcomed! Beforehand we had arranged an airport transfer with no hassle from out lovely hosts, and when we stepped through the door, I noticed how immaculately decorated the whole house was. Our room was incredible - lovely bed, shower, air conditioning with efficient ceiling fans, wi-fi; basically everything you'd expect from... More

Excellent cannot describe this guest house enough. From arriving at breakfast time to be greeted with hot coffee and breakfast after a long flight to Anne continually ringing the airport to track our waylaid luggage , the whole stay was perfect. Anne and Bruce could not do enough to help. They provided suggestions on how to spend the visit to... More

Could also be named Underberg BEST House!! So, positively the best away from home accommodation that my wife and I have had the pleasure to experience! One has to stay at the Underberg to really appreciate the elegance and ambience of this fine establishment. On top of all this luxury, add the warm and friendly hospitality of Anne and Bruce,...

Everything was excellent, starting with the wonderful owners, making us feel like at home. The house is beautiful and perfectly preserved, absolutely clean. The location is also excellent, quiet safe neighborhood, but just 5 minutes walking from the restaurants and nightlife area of Kloof street and Long street. When we come back to Cape Town, we'll go to Underberg Guest... More

Outstanding guest house. Anne and Bruce are wonderful hosts and can't do enough to help organize your days ,arrange tickets in advance and suggest great local eating places. We could walk to all the restaurants within a few blocks and felt completely safe. A great location and easy to walk to many attractions.

The hosts, Bruce and Ann, were very kind and helpful. We stayed for 5 nights and Underberg was a good basis for travelling around in Cape Town. It is placed in calm and safe surrundings, short walking distance to nice and interesting marketplaces and some charming restaurants we walked to for dinner. If we come back, Underberg will be our...
