A beautiful and historic guest house with a warm welcome from Anne & Bruce. Great location - close to city centre and easy walking distance to bars and cafes on Kloof Street.

The Underberg is a lovely century home in the heart of Cape Town with views of Table Mountain. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. There is no Air Conditioning (not uncommon in Cape Town) however the room was noisy with the morning city traffic.

Sadly we only had 3 days in Cape Town after a family reunion in J'burg but The Underberg Guest House exceeded our expectations in every way. It's location is terrific with most of the best restaurants within walking distance. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms are lovely and beds very comfortable. We will definitely be returning to Cape Town and of course hope to stay at The Underberg. We can highly recommend this establishment.

We were in Cape Town for a conference and the host and hostess were just the best. The welcome and the attention we received was outstanding. The breakfasts were a delight and our beds were comfortable. I don't usually do these tripadvisor things but this was one where the guest house and the staff thoroughly deserves a note. Ian

When one wants to leave KZN for a quick break, Cape Town is where one goes. When one truly wants to feel like they are on holiday, but with the comforts and ambience of home, The Underberg Guest House is the only option!
Not only are the rooms stunning with olde - colonial high ceilings, matched with crisp lovely linen (one might never get out of bed) and beautiful facilities, but the owners, Anne and Bruce, will look after you like you are old friends or perhaps royalty.
You only have to ask, and your hosts will do anything in their power to make it happen.
On your decent from your oh -so comfortable room to breakfast, Anne is there to greet you and ask how you would like your eggs. Freshly cooked by a skillful hands, the breakfasts are to die for.
What more can one say, other than I certainly had the very best holiday Ive had in a long time! Thank you Anne and Bruce for making that happen!
