We stayed at Gumtree for one night on route to Knysna. Philip and Linda are excellent hosts, extremely well organised, and made us feel very much at home. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Altogether, a very enjoyable stop over.

Excellent Guesthouse with good amenities. Very close to centre of town and lovely restaurants. The hosts Phil & Linda were exceptionally friendly and accommodating and told us the best places to eat and to visit in the area. They even told the restaurant it was my wife's birthday and arranged for a small cake with a candle to be given... More

We had a lot of fun at this B&B and the owners were pleasant and very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the bed and... More

Linda and Philip are gracious hosts who have thought of all the details. The rooms are comfortable, with up to date bathrooms. The breakfast is described by Philip item by item, including if it's locally made. Cannot get better value for money.

Anyone who has traveled around RSA over the past 10 yrs has seen how the standard of accom and esp B&Bs has risen. Intense competition combined with guests who expect more, means the quality of guesthouses continues to rise. We've been to dozens and Gumtree Lodge sits in the top echelon, not just as a value-for-money venue... but in its... More

We spent a night at the Gumtree, and everything was nice and comfortable. Good restaurants are in walking distance, and breakfast was fine. The rooms have been recently renovated so they're almost as new. Recommended.
