The Underberg Guest House was an excellent choice for my weekend stay visiting family in Tamboerskloof ,Cape Town.It is beautifully decorated and immaculately cared for by owners Anne and Bruce, who were keen to keep their guests happy at all times.

We booked at the Underberg for 2nights and ended up staying 5. We were so comfortable we didn't want to trust anywhere else. We actually stayed in 2 different rooms and both were excellent. The house is full of character, tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and superb showers. There is also a bar area for drinks with an honesty box,... More

We loved staying at Underberg this January. Our room and bathroom were the perfect size, and the high ceilings, shuttered windows, and decor made us feel like we were in a pretty fancy place. From our room and the balcony in the common area, there are perfect views of Table Mountain. Underberg is within easy walking distance to a host... More

Beautiful decor, in a quiet area but close to restaurants and the city centre. Anne was a very helpful and welcoming host and everything went like clockwork. Good breakfast, and clean and comfortable room.

This is a beautifully appointed and well managed guest house, with a breakfast that is fantastic! The high ceilinged rooms are very airy and spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished. Anne and Bruce are the perfect hosts - as helpful as you want, friendly and caring without being fussy or conspicuous. In a bustling place like Cape Town this was... More

Our stay at the Underberg Guest House was super. Anne and Bruce are very gracious, helpful hosts. The Guest House, built in 1862, has been wonderfully restored. It is clean, big and friendly; our bathroom was spacious with a lovely shower. Breakfasts are tasty and good. The staff are helpful and friendly. It's the place to stay - central, quiet... More

The hosts Ann and Bruce are amazing people who will do everything they can to make your stay outstanding. The house is beautifully restored with lots of attention to detail. The rooms are very clean and comfortable somewhere to look forward to... More

We had a really great time during our stay at the Underberg. Anne and Bruce were always kind and helpful, making our stay even more enjoyable. The breakfast was awesome and the coffee was the best we got on our travel along the Garden Route. The rooms are lovely and clean, location is central not far from the table mountain.

We arrived early in the day bleary eyed from our flight, well before check in but were welcomed warmly with a lovely cup of coffee and within an hour were off to see the sites of Cape Town full of advice, maps and tips from our lovely hosts. The Underberg is very well located and we were able to walk... More
