The two of us stayed at the Underbred last week during out trip to South Africa for several nights. It really is a wonderful place. Ann and her husband (the owners) were wonderful.

Once again we had an excellent break at the Underberg before heading up country. This time Ann organised a shuttle for us from the airport and it all ran smoothly. We had our favourite room with it's own balcony.

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?
