No detail is overlooked when you stay with Anne and Bruce at the Underberg Guest House. The house's guest rooms and common spaces are lovely, breakfast has something for everyone and the location is ideal. Most important is the warm personal touch that Anne and Bruce provide. They helped with car service to and from the airport as well as... More

The Underberg Guest House was wonderful and lived up to the standards set by all amazing reviews that I read. We had an absolutely lovely stay in Cape Town and at the Underberg Guest House and only wish we could have stayed longer. The Underberg Guest House is a gorgeous (and huge) 2-story house in a very good neighborhood in... More

I stayed at Underberg for five days whilst managing a tour group that was staying at the B&B next door. Anne and Bruce were excellent hosts. They were really knowledgeable about Cape Town, what to do, where to go etc. The breakfasts were lovely and the room was superb. Thank you for a lovely stay

We were greeted by Anne after a long flight with tea and cookies! The room/bathroom is large with high quality toiletries. Anne was a great resource in planning our travel and always available for questions. Highly recommend this place!!

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. The owners (we mostly dealt with Bruce since Ann was out of town) were very, very helpful - we couldn't have asked for more. Rooms were very comfortable and immaculate, and breakfast was delicious. This was also a perfect place to stay in Cape Town since it is in the middle... More

We stayed here for 1 night (18 April) and found no faults with this guest house. The owners (Ann and Bruce? I don't remember names very well.) were friendly and accommodating to our needs and the room (downstairs room) was a good, comfortable size larger than some hotels I've stayed in. Breakfast was first class, offering cereals, fruit, cold meat... More

We stayed in April 2014 for 3 nights and it was the first part of our holiday and the fist time we had been to South Africa or Africa as a whole. We stayed in the suite on the ground floor and the room was absolutely great... huge bathroom, comfy large bed, quality linen, separate sitting room. Loads of space.... More
