Gumtree is a very popular b&b located in a quiet safe area close to Umhlanga. We were met at the airport off our night flight and offered dinner before turning in. Our room was well equipped with an amazing shower and bath and the king size bed was very comfortable. Breakfast offers continental, cooked (lots so choice and cooked to order) and the muffins were to die for.
Peter the owner and his staff are really friendly and accommodating. I don't understand some earlier reviewers criticisms. Any little niggles yare very quickly attended to. You just have to ask. It' s not an impersonal 4* hotel but a 4* homely b&b.
A reasonably priced home cooked dinner is available if requested and this was very popular especially with corporate guests. Thursday night is braai/BBQ night. Guests meet up on the patio by the pool so no guest needs to feel lonely in their room!
Peter runs safaris up to local game reserves and we had a great 2 night trip to umfolozi in zululand.
Complimentary wifi is available and if you ask reception in the morning, the contents of your laundry basket will be washed and ironed and returned to your room by evening.
We stayed at gumtree for two weeks and were really made to feel part of the gumtree family. Thanks to Peter, Craig, Lyndah and all the staff. We'll definitely be back.More
