“Excellent guest house.”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

My 14 year old and I stayed here for 4 days in April 2014. This is an excellent place to stay, a beautifully presented guest house with delicious breakfasts and conveniently located for Cape Town's many attractions and experiences. The real key, however, is how friendly and welcoming Bruce and Anne are, offering really useful advice as to what to do, where to eat and making the requisite bookings if necessary. This personal approach made a huge difference - stay here.

My husband and I stayed at Underburg House for three days. We were made very welcome by the owners Bruce and Anne who were very helpful offering to book restaurant tables and advising as to the best places to visit.
Delicious freshly cooked breakfast and wonderful fresh fruit salad for breakfast.
A beautiful house in a perfect position .
We will definitely be visiting again.

I booked a 4-night stay at the Underberg Guest House for 4 friends and from the start, Anne was extremely helpful and accommodating. She arranged airport transportation, provided us with touring information and helped my friends find alternative activities when weather stymied their plans. The breakfast was fantastic every morning, and Anne/Bruce greeted you each day with a smile. The guesthouse and rooms were wonderfully appointed, stylish, and elegant. And the location was near the Kloof street restaurants and within walking distance of the gardens, but in a quiet residential area. I was extremely happy with my choice, and this guesthouse was the nicest place that i stayed during my 2-week stay in South Africa and Namibia.

The Underberg Guesthouse is situated at a quiet area with Kloof Street between walking distance and Camps Bay Beach a 10 min drive away. Our room was a of a subtle luxury, very clean with a stunning balcony! Anne and Bruce were great hosts, and the breakfast served was excellent. Especially the fresh fruit salad made the day!

My wife and I were very pleased with our stay at the Underberg Guest House. Anne and Bruce were great hosts; they greeted us every morning and served a breakfast that exceeded my expectations. The hosts provided us with all the resources we needed to make our time in Cape Town memorable. The location worked out perfectly; within walking distance to restaurants. I'd recommend this guest house to anyone visiting Cape Town.

Reviewed 30 March 2014

They did not get so many positive reviews for nothing and we were not disappointed - the couple who runs this wonderful guest house really know what they are doing. The breakfast was excellent and we were really happy about all the help we got - great service! Our room was one of the smaller ones, but still big enough for us and showed good taste (in our humble opinion). They made sure we had an enjoyable stay with them and genuinely seem to be in the "hospitality business" as far as we could tell. The house is also very close to the city cenre and Table Mountain, but still quiet (and with free on-street parking). We really can't find any reason why not to recommend this superb Bed&Breakfast to anyone visiting Cape Town.
