About Underberg Guest House

The Underberg Guest House is considered the oldest guest house in Cape Town and was built in 1860 as a farm house when the slopes of Table Mountain still supported game, leopard and lynx. Lord Baden Powell and Rudyard Kipling often used to ride and walk in this area of Tamboerskloof. More recently it has been used as the production centre for the feature film “That English Woman”.

ACCOMMODATION

The Underberg Guest House has recently been renovated and refurbished and is known for it gracious comfortable atmosphere. The 10 en suite bedrooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable. High ceilings, sash windows, plantation shutters, comfortable beds, beautiful crisp white linen, down duvets, soft white fluffy bath sheets, overhead ceiling fans, heaters, tea coffee facilities, safe, hairdryer, free ADSL, all make for a wonderful stay.

There are two sitting rooms in which to relax and two verandahs to enjoy the sun or to marvel at the beauty of Table Mountain. Our little library has a good selection of good reads.

BREAKFAST

Our delicious breakfasts are served in our spacious dining room. To start is a buffet of fresh home made fruit salads, fruit juices, homemade muesli, bran cereal, yoghurts and breads. This is followed up with a cooked breakfast of eggs to order, tomatoes, bacon and mushrooms, and ended off with home made marmalade, berry jam spread thickly on freshly toasted bread, and plunge pot coffee or a selection of teas. A hearty beginning to an exciting day out!

SERVICE

The Underberg Guest House is owner run and we offer a highly personalized experience. We can take care of your day trips, restaurant bookings, car hire, day spas and taxis and all done with a smile! There is a fully equipped office accessible for any business arrangements.

TAMBOERSKLOOF

Tamboerskloof lies at the foot of Lions Head, and appears to lie in the arms of Table Mountain. It is one of the oldest residential suburbs in Cape Town, and a mere ten minute walk to the ever popular and trendy Kloof and Long Streets, where you will find restaurant, pubs, coffee shops, boutiques, antique stores, book shops and art galleries.

Large beautiful Victorian style homes lie side by side with art deco in an electric mix of architectural styles, along the wide tree lined streets. There are gorgeous views of Lions Head and Table Mountain. The City centre is accessible by foot as is the famous V&A Waterfront. Kirstenbosch Gardens and the beautiful beaches of Camps Bay are a short drive away. The beautiful winelands are a further 30 minutes away, as is the scenic drive out to the Cape Point.
