We are so glad we chose to stay here while visiting the Cape Town area. As second time visitors to Cape Town, we had Table Mountain on our must list. The last time we were here, the cable car was closed. The Underberg is only a 10 minute drive to the Cable Car. We also like to stay somewhere within walking distance to some good restaurants. We ate at both Miller's Thumb and Beleza's. They were terrific. Our hosts, Ann and Bruce were so nice and helpful from our first contact by email until our departure. The house is beautiful, the rooms are all nice, and there is a wonderful balcony with views of Table Mountain. They also have an ample breakfast included in the price. I would stay here again most definitely.

Very friendly and helpful staff (Anne and Bruce), location is close to city center and many tourist attractions, clean and nicely decorated room (minor traffic noise though), very lovely common area/dinning room, delicious and hearty breakfast. Recommended.

We booked The Underberg based exclusively on the reviews on Tripadvisor. When we arrived Ann greeted us at the door and we knew that we had made a great choice! The room was neat as a pin. The bed and linen fresh and crisp. The bathrooms were modern and beautiful. Ann and Bruce are very friendly and helpful.
We will be back!

I spent 3 months travelling through Africa, camping and staying in hostels. I chose the Underberg to decompress before heading home, and it was the best decision I could have made!
The owners were very welcoming, and the room was spotless and modern and comfortable. I definitely recommend a suite with a balcony!
Breakfast included muesli, toast, yogurt, fruit, eggs, bacon and the list goes on!
If and when I return to Cape Town, I hope to stay again at the Underberg. Highly recommended!
Thanks for the wonderful stay!

We spent 2 great nights at Underberg after arriving in SA. It's well located with easy walking access to long street, the hop on hop off bus and the cities hills. The rooms are stylish, spacious and modern, however what makes this place stand out is the welcome from the owners! They are superbly hospitable and ensure that you have a plan for the day fully armed with local knowledge/maps/tickets, all that you would need. A lovely place to stay with charming hosts, we hope to be back!

Underberg is as neat and clean on the inside as it looks on the outside. We had a very comfortable stay in this beautiful, perfect;y restored, secure building. It is in a very convenient location to access central Cape Town. Friendly owners and staff. Would suit people who don't like the clutter, idiosyncracies and very homely feel that some b&bs or guest houses have- Underberg has more of the feel of a small hotel with modern hotel style rooms, although the big bath, balconies and cheerful breakfast make it better than a hotel.

The Underberg is located in the quiet residential neighbourhood of Tamboerskloof, close to many good restaurants and the Long Street and is a good starting point for the Lower Cable Station to the Table Mountain.

The house itself has been lovingly renovated and the rooms are very modern and well equipped. 3 parking spaces are attached to the premises, otherwise cars can be parked in the nearby streets. The rooms each have DsTV connection and a flatscreen TV. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with fresh towels every day.

The very nice breakfast is done in buffet-style with fruit salad, a great muesli, cheese, cold cuts and toast. You can get a cooked meal on top of that consisting of the usual suspects of eggs in various forms and shapes, bacon, tomato and mushrooms.

The hosts Anne and Bruce are very friendly and accommodating and will supply you with maps and advice on what to do in and around the city if you require it.

If you're looking for a quiet, up-market yet friendly B'n'B in Cape Town, the Underberg Guesthouse is your place.
