... A guest house that was perfectly located, with great service and comfortable accommodation. We travel to Cape Town once a year and this year, our stay in Cape Town was great, made possible by Bruce and Anne, the ever the gracious hosts. I highly recommend the Underberg Guest House as a place of rest and recovery, after a busy... More

We stayed at the Underberg for 4 nights and it was excellent. The owners Anne and Bruce were great hosts and helpful with recommendations on what to do and how to get around. The Tamboerskloof neighbourhood has lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

Excellent! I was hesitant to write a review because a part of me hoped to keep this place a secret. However, the new owners have done a phenomenal job renovating the guest house and getting it up and running, and they definitely deserve the recognition. They truly provide 5-star service. I would highly recommend the Underberg Guest House to all... More

As a party of 5 we stayed here for 5 nights at the start of our recent holiday in South Africa. We chose it because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor and the helpfulness of Anne who responded very positively to my e-mailed questions. We were not disappointed. We didn't wish to be in the bustling waterfront area but this... More

We stayed two nights at Underberg Guest House and had a wonderful stay. Anne and Bruce were so helpful in organizing our hiking trips (Table Mountain and Lion´s Head) and gave us perfect recommendations for dinner in the neighbourhood. Use Anne´s knowledge about the city (and around). Tamboerskloof is a very nice and great to stay as it is so... More

Beautifully restored house, spacious and spotless rooms, lovely breakfast, great location near to Table Mountain. Great fish restaurant nearby, plus some other choices for eating. Felt safe to walk... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It was clean, well-appointed, and safe feeling. Loved the location- quiet yet close to Table mountain and other attractions. Hosts were lovely as was breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

Our travel agent booked us here for 5 days after a long haul through Namibia. What a lovely spot to recuperate. The room was large and very clean with a beautiful BIG shower in the ensuite, also spotless, and a heater in the corner for the cold nights. Three excellent restaurants two blocks away and no worries about walking there... More

I spent one week in Cape Town recently and I stayed at the Underberg Guest House. The place was recommended by a friend and I must say that I had a most wonderful experience. The staff is extremely friendly and goes out of their way to make you feel at home. Excellent breakfast; spacious room, and everything is spot clean.
