We stay here to visit the kango caves and a ostrich farm. Phil and Liz are very helpful people. Even when we want to Braai he helped us out. The rooms are clean and nice. We have had a great stay here.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Gumtree Guest House. The proprietors were very engaging, and offered some good dining and entertainment options. While the inn is in the city, it feels quiet and secluded, due to the landscaping and how it is situated.

Phil and Linda were wonderful hosts who gave us loads of great tips during our 3 night stay. Breakfast was lavish and we enjoyed drinking something at the bar in the evening before walking to one of the many dinner options nearby. They were also very friendly helping us planning the rest of our trip. Well worth a visit!

The Gumtree Guest House was such a delight to stay in. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and were full of good advice re where to eat and places to go. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and well kitted out. The gardens were well kept and had it been summer we would have taken advantage of the pool area.... More

Phil & Linda was very friendly and helpfull. They made our stay very pleasant, they defnitely have a personal touch. There were nothing to complain about. Breakfasts were excellent, and they did recommendations as to where to go or where to have dinner and what to do in and around town. They are very good ambassodors for Oudtshoorn and surroundings!

We enjoyed our stay very much, nice room, a neat place with everything you need. The breakfast was perfect and the suggestions for excursions and dinner by Phil and Linda were really awesome. The room was even provided with line adapter. Oudtshoorn is a nice town with plenty of shops which you should visit, the Cango Caves were formidable!
