Like all other reviews, we can only agree that The Gumtree is a eminent place to stay. And how many places can you enjoy to cool down in the pool with a magnificent view of the Grobbelaarsrivier, the suspension bridge, and the mountains in the distance.
In our opinion The Gumtree is in fact the best choice for a stop on the Garden Route anywhere between Cape Town and PE.
So what can we add to all the other appraisals? Well, try and visit the aftenoon bar and have a chat with Phil an Linda. You'll soon know that they've got wit, world perspective and on top of this they even have a detailed knowledge about things to do (and don't) in Oudtshoorn and the region based on their personal experiences.
The only problem is that you might never want to leave the bar - but then again - Phil can get you seated in the best local restaurants (e.g. Kalinka) with short notice.
Whenever we're ever going to be within a radius of 250 km of The Gumtree, we would definitely return!
