I recently had the pleasure of spending two relaxing days at Gumtree Lodge in Mount Edgecombe. What a peaceful and tranquil haven, with awesome gardens and grounds. Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. My room was comfortable and clean and I especially loved the comfort-ability of the King-Sized bed. Breakfast was wonderful, loved the omelet!!

Very nice place to stay at and we have stayed their twice already however the 2nd time around was not that pleasant as the place needs some maintenance work to be done. the staff are lovely and there was lost of freedom or the kids to have fun which was of utmost importance to us.

We spent two nights at Gumtree Lodge as we were visiting relatives nearby and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, good accommodation and excellent breakfasts. It was exactly as expected based on the the information on the website and although it felt very busy at times during the day because they were building a Spa room in the garden, it was quiet...

Overall: The rooms were adequate, however I think this was because we spent so little time there, just got ready in the morning and left for the day. Returned to sleep at night. If we spent more time, I would have probably been very unhappy. HOwever, I think that the staff might have been overwhelmed by the number of guests....

Very relaxing and laid back. Close to Umlanga Beach and Gateway Mall. Good value for money, decent breakfast. Staff are average. The lodge could do with a sping clean a refebishment as there are some very grubby corners. This is a good place to unwind, don't have 4 star expectations, adjust your expectation to 3 star.
