The Gumtree Guest House is a perfect place to stay when you are in Oudtshoorn and are looking for something central but still in a quiet location. Friendly and very helpful host. We had a great time there and would not hesitate to go back.

Stayed 2nights at this lovely guesthouse. Wonderful place with excellent breakfast,plenty of advice about restaurants and attractions. Linda and Phil are brilliant hosts-enjoyed our chats in the bar before bedtime! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and their hospitality. Sandra and Alan Coyle.

The Gumtree is very nicely situated just off the main street in Oudtshoorn (close to restaurants and shops), yet on the little stream (river) which makes it feel like it's out in nature. The owners are very welcoming and the breakfast is good as well.

At the end of October we stayed 3 nights at this wonderful place. Phil and Linda are very good hosts. We loved the sundeck with pool, with enough room for sunshine and shade. Whatever you want it is there. Phil is very helpful with tips, serving an excellent breakfast with a lot of choice. Local products....mmmm... very delicous. Gumtree is... More

Spent one night at Gumtree in October, a slightly quirky but a very comfortable and friendly establishment. The double room had everything we needed and the Breakfast was brilliant, just what was needed for the day ahead.

This is a very centrally situated B&B with very short acess to the town. The room was well appointed. The breakfast was very good with excellent home baked bread on offer. Very obliging hosts who let us leave our car secure whilst we visited the town before departing. I would have paid the balance by cash but my card was... More
