What a great place. Friendly staff, comfortable clean rooms and the owner Peter is Fantastic. The trip was work related but at the last minute 2 days became free. A quick chat with Peter and he suggested a Safari. An hour later and we were on our way to Huhluwe game reserve with Peter as our guide. Already planning my...

My wife and I enjoyed our 6-night stay at the Lodge. The staff were very friendly and were always willing to help. The surrounding area is quiet and perfect for a holiday away from the city. Highly recommended. Thank you to the Gumtree Lodge staff members. Keep up the great work!

When we arrived the staff were very nice and friendly, we were shown to our room which was pretty grubby. You could see the stains on the mattress protector through the sheet and the bathroom looked like it need a really good clean. The wifi was shocking, and as we were expecting emails and to be able to communicate this...

For a lady who spent her life cleaning other people's houses & now retired in rural Eastern Cape, it wasn't going to be easy.

We first visited Gumtree lodge a few years ago and have been going back ever since. The rooms are spacious and well fitted-out, there is a pool for hot summer days, a pool table, free wifi, a very hearty cooked breakfast, lovely grounds and even an beauty therapist on the property. There is also a very reasonably priced and generously...

We headed down to Durban for the Comrades and was very pleased to find accommodation that wasn't trying to rip you off but rather give you value for your money. The rooms are massive including the bathrooms and meet all your needs. Daily breakfast is served by the team and the staff who make you feel like you part of...

Great stay . This Lodge made my long stay very pleasant. The staff were very friendly and made me feel at home. If I ever needed anything all I had to do was ask and it was tended to right away. This place made me feel at home even though home was far away. Thank you to Lindah and Babu...

I just visited Durban and stayed at the Gumtree Lodge. It is a home away from home, very serene and natural. The staff were nice, helpful and polite. Peter, the owner was very friendly and welcoming. It is a place I will surely recommend to visitors who prefer the homely environment.
