What a fantastic place to stay. The rooms all have a theme and we stayed in the Africa Room. The rooms are very large and comfortable with spa and fireplace. It was a great place to relax and the bed was very comfortable and very quiet at night. Penny and Jorg were great hosts and showed us how to walk... More

From the moment we arrived Penny and Jorg made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Moroccan room which was amazing. The furnishings perfect, the bed super comfortable, the bath towels soft and luxurious and the linen top of the range. The room was spacious and it had a spa bath. Port and Chocolates on arrival.

Thank you, Jorg and Penny for helping my sight-impaired sister, enjoy her Christmas holiday @ Gumtree on Gillies. We stayed in the Moroccan Room and found it so beautiful. Penny is so happy-go-lucky, and made us feel comfortable, (nothing was "too-much-trouble".) I enjoyed patting the resident CAT..(who greeted me on the back patio, early morning)....and the tranquility of the units... More

This was our second stay in Gumtree on Gilles, the previous being 6 years ago, and the hospitality has not changed. The rooms are spacious with exotic decor, Moroccan, Egyptian, African. The estate is quiet and rings with the sounds of birds in the morning. There is good access to all the Atherton sites. Hot breakfast is served on the... More

We were definitely charmed by this delightfully unique B&B situated on the fringe of the equally delightful historic town of Yungaburra. We stayed in the Egyptian room which felt quite sumptuous and exotic, with many small individual touches adding to it's warmth and ambience. Not with standing an Egyptian pharaoh offering us port and choccies as we entered the room!... More

Hi Jen and Bob, I am so glad that you had such a great experience here with us at Gumtree B&B, and you found some welcome relief from the heat and humidity of Cairns up here. Whilst ours is a rural property and the gardens are not as manicured as most resorts, it is great to know that people appreciate... More

I stayed here for just one night with my partner a couple of weeks ago. We wish we'd had longer to spend here because it was so relaxing. The themed room had so much attention to detail. We stayed in the Moroccan room and there were DVD's of movies set in Morocco, guide books on the country, a potpourri bag... More

Fantastic establishment; fantastic décor; peaceful & quiet; and fantastic hospitality by host "Vicky". A really great place to get away and have a chill-out break from the pressures of day-to-day life in Cairns, work in Cairns, and neighbours in Cairns. Arlyn & Jeff S (Cairns) - September 2014

Thanks so much for your review. We are always very open to feedback and appreciate you taking the time. I cannot apologise enough for the lolly wrappers that you found.
