What a great experience at underberg house, the epitome of warm southern African hospitality. Anne and Bruce make you feel at home immediately in their beautiful guest house which dates back to the 1850's. Centrally positioned in tamboerskloof, close enough to all the action and great restaurants but in quiet street away from the hustle and bustle. I must say... More

We have just spent 4 nights at the Underberg Guesthouse. We have to say, it's probably the best place we have ever stayed at. Anne & Bruce run a very professional ship. They were most helpful to us during our stay. Giving us very helpful advice. We loved coming home to a G&T at the end of the day in... More

I stayed here with a friend for a few nights. The owners and staff were friendly and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable, as well as the common areas. Close to the city center and some wonderful restaurants. Was a wonderful stay and I would definitely return!

I stayed at Underberg for five days in late August and thought it was nothing short of top-drawer. The rooms and common areas were very nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. Breakfast (Continental, consisting of cereals, breads, yogurt, cold cuts, etc., homemade marmalade and jam; and/or a full English-style breakfast) was consistently delicious, and the small but inviting bar (unmanned -...

I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of August. Tamboerskloof is a great area to stay. Close to the city centre, mountain and lots of great restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Anne and Peter are great hosts and make you feel very welcome. It is an old building but wonderfully modern inside. I had the room upstairs... More

Ann and Bruce were truly welcoming and helpful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble, eg obtaining tickets for the ride to Table Mountain, arranging a full day driving tour to the Cape with Ronnie (who was a lovely and knowledgable man whose services I would thoroughly recommend). Good location, restaurants nearby (walking, no hassles).

My husband and I stayed for 10 nights at Underberg. We were warmly welcomed by a Bruce and Anne who were extremely friendly hosts. The standard at Underberg is excellent. Spotless. Beautiful rooms and linen, common lounge, dining area and honesty bar were great amenities. The location in Tamboerskloof is terrific. It's central, and the whole area is beautiful to... More

Our hosts could not have been more welcoming or more helpful - they made our stay very easy indeed with great advice on restaurants and shopping. Lovely quiet place but easy to get to centre. We wouldn't hesitate to go back. Thank you.
