Absolutely stunning guest house with the friendliest host we have met in a long time! Anne and Bruce are incredibly friendly and caring. Highly recommended for your next trip to Cape Town!

4 days in Cape Town were made a pleassure by staying at Anne and Bruce Veal's restored guest house in Tamberskloof. The district is safe and has a good selection of eateries on your doorstep (Millers' Thumb super). The house is classy and comfortable, full of period features and spacious bedrooms with views of Table Mountain. Both Bruce and Anne were friendly and happy to help with local tips and information. Smashing breakfast, although after 3 weeks of fry ups I enjoyed the chopped fruit , yoghurt and home made jams best. I would recomment a further stay there any time and wish Anne and Bruce great success in their roles a hosts with the most.

Room Tip: Pick a room with views of Table Mountain

This is the place you should stay when you are in Cape Town. Location is excellent. Staff are very guest orientated. Rooms are clean and renovated. Bathrooms keep a very high standard, the best I've seen during many years of travel in South Africa. Breakfast as good as you can expect. I was offered newspapers of the day. After breakfast coffee was brought to me at the veranda. Spoil yourself.

What a wonderful place to stay in Cape Town! The guest house is ideally located in a quiet residential area and at the same time close to the main attractions. The rooms have a very high standard. The service is excellent and the breakfasts are wonderful. Anne and Bruce are the perfect hosts managing the house in a friendly and discrete way creating a homely atmosphere. We are already planning our next stay! Rita & Gunnar.

The Underberg truly felt like our home during our week stay. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and beautiful. It is located in a quiet, peaceful area of town that is not far from all of the main sites. The balcony has great views of the mountain! Bruce and Anne are wonderful- very helpful and personable people!! It is extremely affordable for Cape Town, and what you get for the cost makes it a must stay! We hope to come back sometime!! :)
