We would like to extend our gratitude to Phil and Linda. Our stay at your guesthouse was wonderful. The garden / house and rooms are immaculate. We really wanted for nothing. Breakfasts were super and the one night we had drinks next to the fire in the bar was awesome. Thank you so much, I know we will never stay... More

Great location, room, service and assistance. A second stand for suitcase would have been nice (his & hers). View from veranda was pastoral and no traffic noise. Central to main street, shops and restaurants.

Great rooms, excellent breakfast with local produce carefully selected but most importantly for us the hosts were very engaging with everyone. Always full of really good advice on where to go,...

The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and they had thought of everything - even down to having a socket by a mirror! The breakfast was wonderful with delicious, home baked bread and lovely locally produced jams and chillies. The bar was... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The Gumtree Guest House is one of our three favorites accommodations in South Africa. It's lovely, very tidy and clean. Breakfast was fabulous. It's less than a minute walk to the main street so that one can walk to restaurants. Phil welcomed and gave us recommendations to what to do and where to eat. Totally... More

We had a great time at Gumtree. Phil and his wife were exceptionally welcoming and offered us great advice on our holiday in South Africa, which was really helpful and their advice was spot on. They also made sure we had a great time in Oudtshoorn, giving restaurant advice and making sure we had the correct time for our meerkat... More
