We stayed three nights here and had a very pleasant stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful before and during our stay. The rooms were comfortable with a huge bed and very modern bathrooms. It all looked like it was newly decorated. Breakfasts were also very good, with fresh juices, coffee, toast, yoghurts, freshly cut fruit salad and a cooked to order hot breakfast of eggs, bacon, mushroom and tomato. The area is safe and it is only a 40 minute walk to the waterfront and a 5 minute drive to Table Mountain cable car. The only thing I could find fault with was a dodgy internet connection but Anne was getting that fixed as we left. Would highly recommend this place.

The Underberg is a lovely small B&B with views of Table Mountain, and within walking distance of great restaurants (Miller's Thumb being one of the best), Long/Lang street, and the waterfront. Bruce and Ann have recently renovated and the rooms are elegant, modern, and very comfortable. Room six has a balcony. There is WiFi for those that need it, daily papers at breakfast, and an honor bar. Bruce and Ann are wonderful hosts and are happy to suggest places to visit, arrange taxis, etc. This is a simply super place to stay in Cape town.

Having stayed at Underberg in 2009, we were keen to stay again to see if the same high standard had been maintained with the new hosts, Anne and Bruce. We certainly weren't disappointed and with the all the renovations they had done done, all the rooms were beautifully appointed. We had plenty of space and loved our ample breakfasts. Anne and Bruce made our stay very comfortable, even down to helping us plan out activities for the four days. The location is fabulous, close to interesting shops and great restaurants and not far from the university, the Company Gardens, art gallery and museum.
It was so much nicer than a hotel!

Room Tip: Just pick any room...they all great!

Just got back from Cape Town, spent 4 nights at the Underberg. The rooms are big and spacious and very comfortable. There are great restaurants within walking distance. The host, Anne and Bruce are great. Anne helped book our daily excursions. I would highly recommend.

We stayed here in March 2012. Our hosts are extremely personable and made us feel like we were staying with friends. They even helped our own friends who were not staying at the Underberg by offering them tea, and with keeping luggage before our friends' flight.
The rooms are extremely comfortable, with tall ceilings and fireplaces.
The location is a close walk to restaurants and cafes and there was easy street parking. The breakfasts were extremely good and generous, and the owners spent time with guests during breakfast, which was a nice warm touch. We stayed in CT during the Cape Argus bike race and so some of the owners' friends were also at the house during the day. The owners and their friends were all extremely friendly and welcoming. We'd love to return, if only Cape Town were closer.

We stayed at Underberg for three nights in December 2011. Its a beautiful and very reasonably priced B&B located in Tamberskloof a safe residential but just a five minute walk from some great shops and restaurants on Kloof street. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Couldn't fault it.
