Just returned from Africa. Cannot say enough great things about this inn. Anne is fantastic, so welcoming, informative, helpful, caring. The inn is quite comfortable (great beds!) and well located to walk to restaurants, museums, hop on, hop off. No negative comments here...cannot wait to go back!

Beautifully appointed Victorian villa updated with high quality, characterful fixtures and fittings. Tall ceilings create a sense of calm which combines with great decorations, lovely artwork and fabulous floors. Just relax and take advice from hosts Anne and Bruce on where to go and what to see. Nothing is too much trouble and Anne makes all the bookings you want...

It is close to shops, resturants, bars and an easy walk to the city for museums etc. Also on the main route to Table...

What a discovery! We stay in Cape Town for a few days every month and feel so fortunate to have found Underberg Guest House.
