Newly renovated guesthouse with very clean and well managed rooms. Feels like home, specially during the breakfast chat with the owners. Also very well located close to Table Mountain and downtown. Good for a couple traveling and looking for a peaceful "feels like home" place.

We spent an entire week at the Underberg. Our room and bathroom were large, comfortable and immaculate. The owners were friendly and always had time to chat and impart useful information about Cape Town and environs. We especially enjoyed our long, lazy breakfasts in the beautiful dining room where we made friends with other travelers from near and far. This... More

Anne and Bruce was very helpful and kind during our four night stay at their B&B. The breakfasts were fantastic, the location very nice, and the house was very clean and interesting. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the guest house for a few days and found it impeccable. So much nicer than staying in a sterile hotel room! The owners were so friendly, the rooms were stylish without being plush or ostentatious. The lodge is really tastefully decorated. Its quiet. Felt like a very personalised service. It was a completely hassle free. Like being... More

I had high expectations after reading all the great reviews on TA. The owners Anne and Bruce were genuinely welcoming and so helpful before and during our stay. Anne arranged a car from the airport and day trips to the winelands and the cape with a private car and guide that were the same price as group tours I found... More

Our group agreed that overall this B&B, quietly located in the Tamboerskloof area, was our favourite. You might find larger bedrooms, better breakfasts, etc but altogether the combination of a great welcome, spacious large house, excellent breakfasts,the honesty bar ( I loved playing the barman..." One for you...one for me..") and the quiet location made for our perfect B& B.... More

All the great comments by all the reviewers are all true and more - Underberg is a spacious, comfortable, clean guest house - located very conveniently near the great attractions of Cape Town. It offers a fantastic view to the Table Mountain - hence the name. They serve one of the most hearty breakfasts I have had in recent times.... More
