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.

Loved staying here! I looked at many hotels and this guest house was recommended. Perfect location off Kloof Street. Easy to get to via Uber - use Uber in Cape Town. Large room with huge bathroom - perfect for 2 people. Breakfast was yummy and abundant and Bruce is the perfect host. Would return!

This is a wonderful place to stay while in Cape Town. The location is walking distance to good restaurants and the hop-on hop-off Red Bus. The owners can book your tickets for the Red Bus. The newly renovated guest house is a wonderful hideaway -- pleasant rooms, good bed, good breakfast, and very helpful owners. Great place to stay.

Underberg is a large old refurbished house with beautiful white finishes. Large rooms. Great linen, lovely bathroom with a great shower. Hospitable, nothing overdone. Breakfast is average, but more than adequate. Free wifi (that works without any hassle). Great value in Tamboerskloof.
