Staying at Gumtree was one of the highlights of our entire trip to South Africa! Phil and Linda are so friendly and hospitable and really made our stay so great. We really enjoyed chatting with them and enjoying drinks on the deck. They gave us great recommendations for things to do in Oudtshoorn as well as for the remainder of... More

A very comfortable and convenient stop-over. Phil was extremely helpful and efficient. He served the best breakfast we had during our stay in South Africa. We would certainly recommend Gumtree Guest House if you are travelling along Route 62.

A wonderful welcome to a really good 2 nights stay. A great room (No. 4), well-equipped, lots of tips of what to do and see from Phil and Linda. A tasty breakfast and a packed breakfast to go on our early morning departure. Easy walk to restaurants, nice garden and view with pool.

Probably the best Guest House in Oudtshoorn. Is very central, close to restaurants. Very friendly hosts who gave us tips on both restaurants and attractions. A nice pool areas with sunbeds. Their breakfast was both plentiful and good. Really can recommend this Gusethouse

A pearl in Oudtshoorn: a lot of flowers in the garden, a (litle bit cold) pool, large rooms, very tasty breakfast with local specialities and good suggestions for restaurants in the city. Furthermore very helpful with a compressor and a recommandation to SupaQuick to fit my tyre-problem... Thank you!

This is our second stay at Gumtree Guest House and this time we brought along our grown-up children and booked the 2-bedroom cottage. The cottage has been recently re-furbished I believe and was an ideal set-up for a family of 4 at a decent price. The 2 rooms with en-suite shower rooms are a very good size and have some... More

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.
