Loved this place. Excellent guest house, very well appointed. Very friendly and sincere hosts. Super breakfast. Absolutely nothing to complain about. And within a comfortable walk to city centre.

We very much enjoyed staying at the Underberg. It was a beautiful old building which is well presented, in a convenient area and the rooms were very comfortable. Ann and Bruce were also very welcoming and helpful.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our trip. It is a beautiful, spacious building. It is well located. Excellent value for money. There isn't always someone there, so it did lack the personal touch of other guest houses, but they were very helpful and friendly when they were there.

Well appointed and large guesthouse. Very clean rooms. Powerful shower. Character building with plantation shutters - although they leak light (which may lead to an early wake up call), they are very elegant. Bruce and Anne were helpful in recommending things to do and where to eat. Great stay!

Beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. I needed to see a doctor during my stay and Anne and Bruce, the owners, were so helpful. Wonderful restaurants 5 min walk away. Wouldn't stay anywhere else! Thanks Anne and Bruce! Sally Kling, Sydney, Australia

Had a fantastic stay at the Underberg. Loved the location. Rooms are quiet and very comfortable. The owners were warm, gracious and very helpful and informative. Hot breakfast, cooked to order. I will stay there again when back in Cape Town.

We loved staying here. Bruce & Ann were very helpful and made us feel most welcome. The place is beautifully furnished with antiques. It's spotlessly clean and the rooms are very comfortable with every amenity. It was a wonderful place to start our holiday to South Africa.
