Gumtree Guest House
Ranked #4 of 78 Oudtshoorn B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Having been in the industry myself, I cant help but be super critical, I have to say the Gumtree Guest House absolutely surprised me, their attention to detail was superb, thinking of all the small things that are important to a guest, far exceeded the normal level. they really think outside the box and have come up with lots of pleasant surprises that make your stay a pleasure. Phil and Linda are friendly and very well informed on the area, they offered a free welcome drink and were quite happy to sit and talk with us. We found them well traveled and able to talk with us about a lot of common experiences all over the world. I would definitely recommend the Gumtree to anyone staying in Oudtshoorn.

We stayed at the Gumtree for one night but it was very enjoyable. The owners were very nice and helpful with local activities and restaurants. The room was clean and had comfortable beds. I would recommend this B&B if you are traveling to Outshoorn.

It`s a very personal and kind care and its a great place to stay in Oudtshoorn.
The breakfast was exquisite. We were very happy to stay there, even if we only stayed one night.
We'll come back if we`ll be in Oudtshoorn again.

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
