What a fantastic Guest House. As will be evident from my photographs this establishment is oozing with quality; please have a look. I must confess this was not my first choice for a 6 night stay in Cape Town but be in no doubt that was a mistake on my part. I can absolutely and unequivocally recommend this Guest House... More

Stayed here for over a week in December. Anne and Bruce give their heart into work and it does make a different! Underberg has everything that you are looking for while on holidays: comfortable beds, clean spacious rooms, fantastic breakfasts (even though was finished at 10 there was never a problem to sit, drink coffee and read paper until later),...

Recent stay from Jan. 14-21, 2015. We enjoyed every minute. The guest house is spacious, yet very quaint and inviting; home -away-from-home. The rooms were impeccably clean and the attention to detail was noted throughout the house. Our hosts, Anne and Bruce, were absolutely lovely and they made sure our every need was met. The breakfast was great with fresh... More

Stayed for 7 nights here. Pretty guesthouse (both on the outside and the inside) in Tamboerskloof, which is our favourite area for a stay in Cape Town given its central location and the excellent cafes/restaurants within walking distance. The room is excellent and spacious (we stayed in a suite) with amenities like a separate sitting room, bath-tub, etc. The TV... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Underberg. The guest house is an excellent location; close to many Cape Town attractions. The area is filled with quaint houses, and is near many restaurants. Anne and Bruce were friendly and professional: they gave us good tips about various things to do around town. The breakfast were delicious: the fresh... More

My wife and I were on holiday from Malawi where we had been living for 5 months. We wanted to start our 9 day holiday off with a nice place in Cape Town, and this was perfect. The room was fantastic, the breakfast was amazing every morning, the staff was incredibly polite and helpful, and we could not have been... More

We were moved to this guest house from an african villa as we wanted to extend our stay in this area. The couple who owns the guest house were extremely nice & very helpful. We had a lovely room with a nice big balcony, the bathroom was spacious. Breakfast was great as well. We had a lovely time here.

We stayed at the Underberg in Dec 2014. Our room was small but clean and in immaculate condition. A very central location. Run by a lovely couple and wish them a very good 2015. Definitely a guest house I would recommend. Thank you

A very well appointed, clean, fresh guest house that is well positioned and well run by Bruce and Anne. Staff are friendly. Breakfast simply the best I have had in all my travels. Certainly will book here again.
