A wonderful welcome to a really good 2 nights stay. A great room (No. 4), well-equipped, lots of tips of what to do and see from Phil and Linda. A tasty breakfast and a packed breakfast to go on our early morning departure. Easy walk to restaurants, nice garden and view with pool.

This is our second stay at Gumtree Guest House and this time we brought along our grown-up children and booked the 2-bedroom cottage. The cottage has been recently re-furbished I believe and was an ideal set-up for a family of 4 at a decent price. The 2 rooms with en-suite shower rooms are a very good size and have some... More

Rooms were clean and spacious. There was a musty smell to the rooms - not bad, but apparent. The breakfasts were fabulous. We were able to walk into town each night for dinner - safe. Phil and Linda were a fountain of knowledge - very helpful. The guest house was central to all sights that we were visiting.

I treated my Trinidadian friend to a trip to Oudtshoorn & was thrilled to find Gumtree Lodge. Our hosts Philip & Linda, were not only very friendly, but an excellent source of local interests. The accomodation was most comfortable & colourfully decorated.

My husband and I stayed at the Gumtree Guest house for just one night in February 2015. The location was great, room lovely, and the pool and garden area lovely to relax in - as was the verandah outside our room.
