We very much enjoyed our stay at the Gumtree Guest House. Linda is a very kind and friendly host, our room was spacious and comfortable, the breakfast excellent. And everything is in walking distance. We'll be back,

Gumtree is ideally situated for walking round town. Phil will ensure you have all his help to enjoy visits nearby and make reservations as necessary. Gumtree rooms were functional; the pool is a great asset on a scorching hot day, as is Phil the barman when it's time for sundowners.

From the start of our stay at Gum Tree we were made to feel very welcome by Linda and Phil, the owners. They had all the local information needed to make our stay in Oudtshoorn very special and they were helpful and genuinely interested in their guests. The room was very spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean and an excellent bathroom.... More

We stayed at this B&B for two nights. Phil and Linda are perfect hosts and it's a great touch that they open up their bar in the early evening for a drink and a chat. We were in the 'smallest' room but it was more than adequate - who spends their holidays in their room anyway? Don't sell yourselves short... More

They also offer loads of advice about restaurants and things to do in the area. Would definitely stay again if we are... More

we only stayed one night but Phil did everything to arrange our dinner and activities at cango caves. Breakfast is excellent. Everything is very clean. If I do have to give 1 minor negative thing ; the pool is small with a lot of chloor in it. As soon as you book they send you al lot of information about... More

We stayed in the Gumtree for 2 nights and enjoyed it very much. The first thing we noticed when we entered the room was that the room and bathroom were very clean and tidy. The owners also paid attention to every little detail to make sure we enjoyed our stay the fullest. Breakfast is a very nice and varied buffet... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night only and it was great experience. The setting, the room and the breakfast were all excellent. Phil and Linda were most welcoming, shared their local knowledge and advised and organised a restaurant for our evening meal. Although short, it was a great stay and a place we will return to when...
