Great stay in a Fab place....
Wonderful and elegant B and B. Great hosts who run a really first class establishment , breakfast was epic with everything cooked beautifully. The rooms are spotless and comfortable . We were returning back to the UK on a late flight and we were allowed access to store our luggage and freshen up late in the afternoon. I would highly recommend the Underberg with the only slight negative being the hilly location .

Home away from home
Traveling solo for the first time, I picked Underberg House based on reviews commenting on Anne and Bruce's special attention to their customers, I was not disappointed; they are the best hosts ever. Advice on sightseeing, what to do, where to eat, help with getting organized, etc. Place is conveniently located, far enough to escape hustle and bustle of Long street but a short cab drive from it or table mountain cable car (beautiful views from the hotel), walking distance from Boo Kaap, etc. Breakfast is delicious and made to your taste. Wifi works great. Thank you Anne and Bruce!

Space, comfort and fantastic service
On a 4 week trip we'd stayed in several great places but the Underberg Guest House was among the very best. Spacious rooms, spotlessly clean, and super breakfast from delightful staff. And it has its own borehole for water in the Cape Town drought, though we were careful not to waste it. Thoroughly recommended.

Highly recommended comfortable Guest House with an
Fabulous B&B. Spacious and airy. Immaculate furnishings and spotlessly clean. The proprietors are welcoming and helpful; nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is excellent In Tamberskloef area which is a short taxi ride from the Waterfront but has good local eateries. Would definitely stay there again

Clean rooms, wonderful service
Bruce and Anne were the most lovely hosts! They were so helpful from the moment we booked our trip and made our time in Cape Town so memorable. Underberg is in a good location, very clean & comfortable, and had superb breakfast. I would love to return and stay with them again!
