Very welcoming and helpful. The guest house is an attractive old building, nicely renovated, with views of Table Mountain from the 1st floor balcony. Anne had very useful suggestions about where to eat and how to get around Cape Town.

I really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The guesthouse, rooms, location, views of table mountain were all wonderful. The owners, Bruce and Anne, are fantastic people. Extremely welcoming, friendly and accommodating...the ideal hosts.

The Underberg Guest House is beautiful, with classic architecture, and Anne, the manager, is a lovely person who was very helpful to us during our stay in Cape Town.
We spent two nights there, and we highly recommend this comfortable home. The well-stocked bar was nice, too.
This happened to be our honeymoon, and Anne left a bottle of champagne for us in the room.
We also have completely positive memories and experiences at Underberg.

Just arrived home after staying at the Underberg Guesthouse and can only describe it as a marvellous home from home. Anne and Bruce were great hosts so very helpful.
The place is lovely and clean very comfortable we were very sad to leave. We had 5 nights with them and cannot praise this place enough. The area is lovely very close to Table mountain and there are a couple of very good eating places nearby no need to drive. You will get a great welcome at the underberg and the area is very safe.

Room Tip: we had room 1 and room 5 both great.

I would recommend Underberg Guest House without hesitation for anyone looking for a very comfortable, friendly and relaxed B+B in a good location only minutes from the centre of town. Prices are very reasonable and it is a far better option than so called business hotels. The house has been beautifully restored, rooms are large and tastefully decorated with high quality natural materials, and the owners are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is delicious!

Room Tip: Some rooms have fantastic balconies, others have Table Mountain views.

I recently spent 4 nights at the underberg guesthouse when attending a friends wedding and have only positive memories of my stay at the guesthouse. The family is very warm and welcoming and a truly beautiful house too. Definitely highly recommend it to anyone heading out to cape town.

The Underberg is a great little guest house located within easy reach of all the major sites, bars and restaurants in Cape Town. The building has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard, with extremely clean, reasonably sized rooms. Its a family run guesthouse, whose owners are very friendly and certainly made me feel very welcome, adding that personal touch to one's stay. The Underberg was certainly a great find and I would definitely stay here again should i return to Cape Town.
