“Great value and superb hosts”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Sadly could only stop for one night on our way back to Cape Town. Pleasant room with lovely decked area by pool. Breakfast superb with lots of local produce. Phil and Linda, the hosts are very friendly and have a small bar at the B&B for pre dinner drinks and are happy to recommend local restaurants. They also gave us good advice for places to visit in the Winelands.

Very helpful couple. Great idea to have a welcome drink so that all guests meet up and share their stories. Enjoyed our one night stay in a lovely room on the deck near the bar, then went for a meal with 3 other guests

Lovely guest house. Hosts were so kind and couldn't do enough for us.
Lovely breakfasts with charming hosts. Great location. Outshoorn great central place to explore the beautiful Klein Karoo. Hosts recommended great restaurants. Wished we could have stayed longer.
Better than places we paid 5 times the amount of money.
thank you

We stayed for only one night in the Gumtree Guesthouse in Oudtshoorn and we enjoyed it a lot! Beautifull room, very clean! When you're fancy drinking a beer, you can do that in their 'own pub'. The breakfast in the morning was very nice prepared, fresh ingredients out of the region.

An excellent place to stay, central, personal attendance and concern for your well-being on the road ahead!! The owners have a professional approach. The welcomming was warm and the quick orientation on arrival much appreciated. There are beautiful leisure areas on the decks where you can peacefully relax, watching the sunset, while sipping your sundowner!! Thank you Phil and Linda!! Mercia
