Rooms were clean and spacious. There was a musty smell to the rooms - not bad, but apparent. The breakfasts were fabulous. We were able to walk into town each night for dinner - safe. Phil and Linda were a fountain of knowledge - very helpful. The guest house was central to all sights that we were visiting.

I treated my Trinidadian friend to a trip to Oudtshoorn & was thrilled to find Gumtree Lodge. Our hosts Philip & Linda, were not only very friendly, but an excellent source of local interests. The accomodation was most comfortable & colourfully decorated.

My husband and I stayed at the Gumtree Guest house for just one night in February 2015. The location was great, room lovely, and the pool and garden area lovely to relax in - as was the verandah outside our room. Hosts Phil and Linda were friendly, informative and happy to help with all of our requests, and gave us... More

Gumtree Guest House has immaculately kept rooms, pool and grounds near the center of town and well located near the Cango Caves, meerkat viewing and a Cheetah Reserve. There is a... More

We spent one night in this obviously well-run and very comfortable B & B. The room was comfortable, the pool was great on a hot afternoon. The restaurant recommendations were good and the breakfast very tasty. We were able to see a few birds on the property too.

My three friends and I had a lovely stay at the Gumtree Guest House a few weeks ago. We stayed one night in the family unit. Really good service and big +++ for the restaurant advice you (Phil) gave us (Bella Cebu), perfect way to round up a nice day and evening! Will recommend Gumtree to our friends, for sure!... More

Close to the centre so you can walk to shops and restaurants, also near the river and the bridge for good walks. The Gumtree itself is outstanding. The owners are very professional, standards of everything are at a high level, and rooms are very well fitted out and also comfortable. The breakfasts were also outstanding - homemade fresh bread each... More

The Gumtree is well situated, clean, comfortable rooms (we had one with a terrace), good breakfast. Owners are very hospitable and helpful for making reservations for resto's, caves, etc. Tip: Try the "Meerkats tour" and "Magic Moments"
