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!

Very nice rooms, Good host. Breakfast was the best of all locations we visited during our holidag in SA. We only stayed fot one night at Gumtrtee Guest House, so we cannot tell much about Oudtshoorn or lacations near this city.

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)

A lovely experience. Genuinely warm, friendly hosts who go above and beyond to ensure you get the most out of your stay. Very knowledgable about local attractions and the best spots for everything. Breakfast is a five star experience with hot and cold options and local produce. Bar opens around 5.30, with a wide variety and local knowledge, wood fire... More

Gumtree Guest House is situated in the center of Outdshoorn, just a few steps away from Restaurants and Shops. The nice and clean rooms are situated in a beautiful garden with pool. Our host was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed in the evening a (complementary) glass of good wine . All in all a great place to stay for... More

and it had everything we could have wished for - lovely room and bathroom, nice toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar. Lovely outside space to sit and relax, overlooking the gardens. Welcome drink on our first night in the bar (although we didn't avail as it was a sweet wine which we didn't fancy before dinner). Unfortunately Phil... More

Hi Kaybee, Thank you for your positive review and comments. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the restaurants and Meerkats etc. We were sad to have missed you but we did enjoy our short break away after a very busy Summer season. Our practice is to provide guests with a delayed breakfast upon their return from visiting the... More

Unfortunately we could only stay one night as it is one of the nicest places we have stayed. Our room was quiet and very elegantly furnished. We received a welcoming drink, lots of travel advice and the breakfast was superb. A warm and very professional approach is taken by Linda and Phil.

We stayed at the Gumtree Guest House for one night during our garden route tour. The guest house is very cosy and close to restaurants. Phil and Linda were great hosts and were very helpful. Rooms were very spacious and had everything we needed. Breakfast was also delicious. There is a good Italian restaurant nearby which Phil recommended to us.... More
