Reviewed November 20, 2010

very warm welcome by Anne & Bruce.
the house : beautilful Victorian style renovated house in a calm place at a walking distance (10min) of City Bowl best restaurants, bars and touristic attractions. Terrasse view on Table Mountain.
the room : nice king size bed, new shower in my room
services : good buffet breakfast, free parking, free WIFI connection

I recommend this guest house for any type of trip to Cape Town, holliday or business (Convention Center is less than 10 min. drive).

Great B&B in central Cape Town (but not too central as to be bombarded by traffic). A 15 minute walk to bars and restaurants. The B&B is in a old but completely renovated colonial house with 15 feet ceilings (or so it seems), the rooms are quite large. Best shower I had in all of South Africa.

We felt very welcomed by Bruce and Anne. This is a top notch accomodation and beautifully finished. We looked at other guest houses in the area but this one came out tops. We would like to thank Anne for recommending Beleza and Millers Thumb because those became our favourite eating places. If you are coming to Tamboerskloof stay at The Underberg and eat at Beleza and Millers which are around the corner and you will have the most relaxing holiday of your life.

Had such a great stay and owners of the house were unbelievably helpful and accommodating of all 12 of us staying at the lodge that weekend. Thanks so much.

The location was perfect, not in the hustle and bustle of town, but close to all amenities. The establishment is clean and homely and the rooms are spacious. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was generous, healthy and in a very comfortable setting. Access in and out of the place was easy for guests, but also had safety as top of mind. We all enjoyed staying there, so much so, that our colleagues are planning to return for another business trip.

Both Ann & Bruce are exceptionally warm in welcoming you to their home. My daughter and I spent 3 days enjoying their hospitality. If you're looking for a genuinely friendly stay then you cannot do any better than to put your self in the hands of Ann and Bruce. I have already recommended this guesthouse to my friends and intend visiting again next year.

My partner and I live in Oregon in the United States; this was his first trip to South Africa and we spent two wonderful nights at Underberg Guesthouse. The proprietors are incredibly warm and friendly, and we felt welcome and cared-for. The guesthouse is strikingly beautiful from the outside and is elegantly decorated in a clean, modern style with plenty of antique touches. The bed had abundant, crisp, white linen and we had the best sleep in ages. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. We were relieved and happy when our host called the Nelson Mandela Gateway early in the morning, on our behalf, to make sure we'd get tickets on the Robben Island ferry.
