Returning frequently to Cape Town to visit my son who lives there I find that there is no nicer place to stay than at the Underberg Guest House in Tamboerskloof. The beauty of the house, cleanliness and pleasant service from the owners Ann and Bruce and their staff remains constant, providing for a very pleasant stay.

Beautiful house. Very well renovated, contemporary design. Very comfortable and clean room. Excellent breakfast. Big availability of the host, Anne, for assistance on restaurants, visits, travels and reservations. Situated in a quiet district but near all the services and only 20 minutes walking distance to the city center. Beautiful inviting common spaces on the first floor, lounge, bar, dinning room.
