We visited with friends and we stayed in two separate rooms. The rooms are very comfortable, neat, and spacious. We had everything we needed. The B&B location is fantastic, as it's only a couple of blocks from restaurants, shops and other interesting sights. Phil and Linda and lovely hosts and they made great recommendations regarding local restaurants, and also made... More

Everything was fine! Phil & Linda Putzel were friendly, courteous, helped us with our excursions! A nice place for staying longer! We only have one night in Oudtshoorn, but we liked it - garden, pool, room, breakfast... Next time we will stay there again.

Stayed over for 1 night during the KKNK. Very central and convenient for this purpose. Our room was neat, clean and the bathroom recently refurbished. Phil and Linda are very friendly hosts and I like that they try to support local businesses as far as possible - from cheeses to wines etc. I am not a big fan of the... More

Oudtshoorn is great for visiting Cango Caves and going over the Swartberger pass. The Gumtree fits fine for sleeping and breakfast. We were lucky in one respect as we were a couple but had a four berth chalet which allowed us to really spread out and use the other bedroom room as a dumping ground. The chalet had no view... More

Hi P & S, Thank you for the generally positive review. One minor point of clarification: We do offer all guests a Welcome Drink in our bar which we usually open late afternoon. This is currently a glass of Red Muscadel from Karusa which is 13km from Oudtshoorn. You did not visit our bar on either evening that you spent... More

We really enjoyed chatting with them and enjoying drinks on the deck. They gave us great recommendations for things to do in Oudtshoorn as well as for the remainder of... More

A very comfortable and convenient stop-over. Phil was extremely helpful and efficient. He served the best breakfast we had during our stay in South Africa. We would certainly recommend Gumtree Guest House if you are travelling along Route 62.

A wonderful welcome to a really good 2 nights stay. A great room (No. 4), well-equipped, lots of tips of what to do and see from Phil and Linda. A tasty breakfast and a packed breakfast to go on our early morning departure. Easy walk to restaurants, nice garden and view with pool.

Probably the best Guest House in Oudtshoorn. Is very central, close to restaurants. Very friendly hosts who gave us tips on both restaurants and attractions. A nice pool areas with sunbeds. Their breakfast was both plentiful and good. Really can recommend this Gusethouse
