The inn is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The proprietors, Anne and Bruce, were pleasant and very helpful in setting up a tour of the city and of Cape Point. The breakfasts were first class. The location is very convenient to the waterfront and within walking distance to fine restaurants. I look forward to returning some day.

From the start we were welcomed with warmth by Anne and Bruce, made to feel at home, and settled in right away. Our rooms were extremely comfortable, with the balcony looking out towards Signal Hill a particular highlight. Everything worked as it should; we slumbered peacefully at night in our comfortable double bed, washed and brushed in the morning, and went down for a splendid breakfast. Help and advice always readily given. The area of Tamboerskloof is a quiet one, with only occasional rowdy passers-by in the wee small hours. The mounted police must have a stable nearby; we saw a number of police horses being ridden past. City centre just about within walking distance, although probably not back up after dark ( which is uphill all the way anyway). Order Excite Taxis instead. There are a number of good and friendly local restaurants; we especially liked Beleza.

Beautiful colonial style building, stylish inside, great breakfast, the suite was gorgeous, and our host was excellent - lot's of advice on where to go and what to see, and even helped us book online for things like the cable car to Table Mountain and the open-top bus tours (as we were advised, cheaper if you do them online). The area is quiet and safe, and near some nice restaurants (we'd recommend trying out Saigon for an evening meal - Peter's House was a nice little spot for a light lunch). And within walking distance of the main sites too - 5-10 mins to Company Gardens/South African Museum, 10-15 mins to Long Street, even the V&A Waterfront was reachable (30-40 mins on foot for us). All in all a great stay, and good value too compared to UK standards (and considering the high quality of the accommodation).

great value for money. close to everything. spacious, comfortable, safe. nice breakfast and very friendly owners and staff. rooms are quite large with nice porch. although 80% of our time was spent outdoors or touring, the only area that could be improved is the in-room TV offerings.
would definitely be a return guest.

A great accomodation, with comfortable rooms and a tasty breakfast. The house i beautiful. Very helpful and friendly owners. The Guesthouse is located in a safe and quiet area close to the city center, and not too far away from the beach and within a walking distance to good restaurants. I highly recommand this accomodation.

Underberg Guesthouse is located in Tamberskloof, a calm area close to everything.
It is a beautiful house with nice and spacious rooms.
Breakfast is very good, I especially liked the scones.
The owners are very kind and helpful and gave us continously good advice about activities and restaurants. They also made phone calls and bookings for us.
One day, my son was ill and couldnt go out and he was brought a sandwhich to his room without even asking. That is what I call service!
