Underberg House, Cape Town
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!

Elegant guest house in quiet, residential area
We had a fabulous 3 night stay at underberg where we were looked after by Anne and Bruce who made our first trip to Cape Town stress-free and thoroughly enjoyable - from arranging a taxi to collect us from the airport to advising us on the best way way to explore this stunning, diverse city and what to do on our onward travels in South Africa. The guest house is exquisite and breakfast quite delicious. First rate.
