We spent only one night here but hosts Phil and Linda couldnt have been more helpful. From cycling to ostrich tours to our onward bookings, they helped us with the practicalities, ensure we fitted in what we wanted to and even gave two of us a lift when we divided forces. And did I mention the setting? Fabulous verandah sundown... More

The guest house is in a nice location, close to shops and restaurants but also quite secluded. It has a couple of lovely terraces and a verandah outside the rooms which is a great place for having a drink from the owner's small "pub" on the premises and watching the sun go down. The rooms lack a bit of charm... More

We spent 2 nights staying at Gumtree, on the tail end of a 10 week trip in southern and central Africa, and it was one of our favourite stops. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well supplied with everything we could need, including lovely toiletries in the bathroom. The breakfasts are absolutely outstanding - great fresh food, lovingly prepared and... More

Stayed in this guesthouse for one night to check out the ostrich farm and cango wildlife ranch in Oudtshoorn. It is reasonably priced. The hosts were extremely responsive to emails. Provided a wealth of information regarding driving directions, tourist attractions and restaurant options around the area. The rooms assigned to us were extremely spacious, with adequate furnishings that served our... More

We stayed at the Gumtree for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Phil and Linda are extremely welcoming and accommodating to their guests needs. Their home bar adds a lovely social aspect to your stay!

We visited Oudtshoorn (my wife and I) with 2 adult children. Decided to stay at Gumtree , with no knowledge or recommendation. An inspired choice ! Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Hosts are extremely friendly and knowledgeable on Oudtshoorn and surrounds. Trust their restaurant recommendations !! Casual relaxed bar for drinks and definitely a 5 star breakfast. Will not...

We dropped in here at the last minute on a cold winters day after a long drive and were very warmly received. Our rooms were perfect and beds very comfortable. Our hosts offered welcome drinks next to a warm fire and then gave us great dining tips (which we duly followed)
