“Exczellent B&B in Capetown”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

We spent 4 Nights in this very lovely B&B. It's located next to nice bars and restaurants. The Best thing: it is very safe!

Our room was Big and always tidied up. The breakfast was delicious.

The hosts are very friendly. The help you with everything e.g. Trips, Taxi etc.

The Price for this House is Good, compared what you get for your Money!

We spent one week in february in the wonderful old-fashioned-styled victorian guesthouse in Tamboerskloof in Cape Town. All rooms were very clean and decorated lovely from Anne and bruce, the owners of the house. Every morning there was a freshly-prepared breakfast with continental and cooked dishes. For trips in the city and the surrounding we got friendly advices from Anne and Bruce. Relationship between prices and service was very good.
If we would come back to Cape Town, we would stay in the Underberg Guest House again. Come here and enjoy!

My friend and I stayed at Underberg for 2 nights. Our room and bathroom was bright, large and clean, with modern furnishings. The beds are so comfortable and allow for a relaxing sleep after a long day of walking around. Within walking distance to Long Street and stunning view of Table Mountain from the balcony. The owners were so hospitable and gave us great advise on places to visit. Really great breakfast too!

We very much enjoyed to stay in the Underberg quest house, which is rather small ( just few rooms). It is very nice building, with very friendly service, very good breakfast ( only) , stylish, with clean and spacious rooms, located in the safe and very quite part of the Cape town, walking distance to many restaurant, just under the Table mountain and very close to both sides of the city.
It is great value for the money. We can highly recommend to stay in this place and meet Bruce and Ann. They were always helpful, giving advice where to go, gave us the map with the detailed explanation of all we wanted and needed to know.
Thank you very much! It made out stay in the city great and very pleasant.

Dear Ann and Bruce. Thank you very much for the stay in your charming guest house in the beginning of January 2013. What a stay - everything was superb - the hostesses, the staff, the rooms, (feeling of luxury), the breakfast, the surroundings. The location is perfect for walking down town, (about 40 minutes) and the view from our room was Table Mountain and Lions Head!!! We experienced a lot in the Cape Town area these days after good advices from the hostess who also helped us booking tickets to Robben Island and The cable way to Table Mountain. This was the best place to spend the last 4 days of our dreamtrip to South Africa. We would love to come back:-)

We stayed there for 3 nights in January 2013 and really enjoyed it. The house is stylish, clean and run by very professional, lovely hosts. Breakfast was good as well. One of the nicest stays during our trip. We only can recommend it - there is mothing to complain about. The location of the guesthouse is perfect as you do not need to hit the hard traffic in capetown when coming back from your daytrips or goin to tablemountain cablecar. Our hosts provided us every day with lovely tips where to go and what is to see around. All in all - very good. The only thing I was missing was a small fridge in the room but it was no problem to cool our drinks in the bar's fridge. Unfortunatly we had prebooked and prepaid the last 2 nights in capetown in another guesthouse - otherwise we have stayed 2 more nights with them.
