Underberg deserves its 5 Star rating. Previous reviews are spot on. Our neighbor, who's from Africa, recommended Underberg and we felt like family from the moment we arrived. Beautiful property, clean & comfortable rooms, great breakfast. Owners, Anne and Bruce are so friendly and helpful. Easy walk to town. Why stay anywhere else?

Highly recommend Underberg for a great base from which to explore Cape Town. Anne is extremely helpful and will offer advise and make bookings. The guest house was spotless and in a lovely characterful colonial building. Breakfast is good with cereals, pastries, fruit and yoghurt as well as a cooked option. It is easy to get around CT from here...

Wonderful place with great location, helpful owners and delicious breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights and each night went to a wonderful local restaurant (Miller's Thumb, Arnold's & Rick's Americana). The owners also recommended the wonderful food/craft market on Saturdays at the Old Biscuit Mill.
