We are a couple in our honeymoon and we decided to stay in Underberg Guesthouse and that was a wonderful experience. It is a really nice place, so quiet but close to the center, safety neighbourhood, the perfect place to be.
The owner are a couple from there and they are amazing. They take care of our stay...
If we come back any time to CT we will return there.

Estuvimos en CT unos días por nuestra luna de miel y no podemos estar más contentos con la elección. Fue el sitio perfecto, la habitación perfecta e impecable, los dueños una pareja maravillosa que se encargaba de que estuvieras muy bien y dándote a conocer su ciudad, con sugerencias de turismo y de sitios para cenar.
Sin duda si volvemos alguna vez a CT iremos allí sin pensarlo.

A very warm welcome by Anne, a cuppa tea was just what I wanted. First impression wonderful, room excellent. Property renovated very well by Bruce who was also an excellent host. We had some great conversations together. An easy walk from CBD of Cape Town which I enjoyed. A range of places to eat within easy walk. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast great. Both Anna and Bruce very helpful in booking tours if required. Over all a very enjoyable stay, one of the highlights of my trip to Africa. Allan Jordan Australia

Gorgeous place, beautiful rooms, great location! What makes this guest house even more special though is the friendliness, helpfulness and good sense of humour of both Bruce and Anne, who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The small touches made it really special - such as helping and getting tour tickets for us, switching our heater on for when we arrived back from the cold, and super recommendations for visits and restaurants. Definitely one of the favourite places we have ever stayed at - it really stands out!

We stayed at Underberg for 4 nights and it was fantastic. Anne and his husband are really very kind and nice people .To say nothing about rooms and overall service :-) The rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is really gorgeous. I strongly recommend, really worth for the price paid. Giusy De Giorgis - Roma Italia

We visited Cape Town more than 10 times and spent the last 3 times at Underberg. Everytime we had a great stay. Bruce and Ann are wonderfull hosts ; helpfull, accomodating and friendly. The rooms as well as the whole guesthouse are immaculate with wonderfull furniture and features. Bruce keeps everything in excellent conditions - he seems to have some German blood . The staff is very attentive and cooks a lovely breakfast.
The heighbourhood is nice and quiet. Many shops , good restaurants as well as the city center are in walking distance. This is simply the best place to stay in Cape Town. We will be back again in March 2014

We spent three nights in the Underberg and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms and lounge are very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome and the owners were extrememly helpful. Breaskfast was lovely. It's in walking distance of the city centre and restaurants, and we had no trouble parking. Overall a very positive experience.

We enjoyed our stay at Underberg B&B. Great location. Nice neighborhood and easy stroll to city, Spotless. Helful friendly hosts, Anne and Bruce. Parking no issue. Good breakfasts. Would stay here again when I next visit Cape Town. There is a dusk and chair but only suggestion is it would be nice if there was a sitting chair or two in the room.
