A really great place stay while travelling on business in Oudtshoorn. Service was friendly and professional and the room was beautifully kept. The Gumtree provided useful information on the surrounding area even including routes that are new to the scene. Also available is free wi-fi access which is handy for the travelling businessman. A real pleasure to find while travelling in the Klein Karoo.

Me and my girlfriend cleo was suprised how amazing the service was!
We've been to a few lodges and The Gumtree lodge made us feel welcome.
Room was very tidy and professionally prepared for us. Everything was perfect.

The owner of the lodge advised us on activities and places to see, very friendly!
The food that took the whole day to prepare was unbelievable, not something we did expect from a three star lodge.

Take my advice and spend a night or two when passing through Oudtshoorn.
You will not be disappointed :)

Keep on the good work!!

Room Tip: Every Room is prepared perfectly for any person

Teenagers were in a room on the other side of property - wonderful suggestion from Phil and Linda.
Beautifully appointed rooms with attention to detail!
Walking distance from main road - and local shops - a must for teeenagers and even a large Mr Price - a shop which all teenagers love!!
Phil and Linda went out of their way to take us to a chocolate factory /shop and goats cheese factory which were both amazing experiences!
Delicious breakfasts each morning with the most amazing pork sausage!
Wonderful hosts - Phil and Linda - Thank you!

The place is beautifully situated! Picturesque views of the river and bridge in oudtshoorn! The location once again allows one to walk to most places in the town which is a must if you want to see everything(as I did)! The hosts, Phil and Linda are very friendly, helpful people and even pointed me to a mechanic when my car gave in! The room was very comfortable and a bargain for the price! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and would most certainly stay there again!!!!!!

Our stop in Oudtshoorn was very "last minute" and Phil was very helpful to put us up for the night, with suggestions of where to eat and visit. As Business Development Manager I travel extensively every month and stay at many 3 and 4 star guest houses and hotels, many of which are considered top class. The Gumtree I would rate as one of the class guesthouses I have stayed at and would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to visit Oudtshoorn.

A warm welcome from Linda and Phil who gave great advice on what to do and when. Phil cooked us a splendid brai one evening and this proved to be a truly memorable experience.
The Gumtree is in an attractive setting, close to restaurants etc and has much character and a lovely garden. Wish I was going there next month!

From arrival to departure we all felt cared for and nothing was too much trouble. Very centrally located with a great setting. Service was very professional yet the warm hospitality kept it very homely. Phil and linda are wonderful hosts who will go out of there way to add that extra touch.

Room Tip: Great cottage for family with young children.
