Reviewed 21 February 2014

We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time. Phil was very helpful with local knowledge The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The best recommendation I can give is that if we visit the area again The Gumtree will be our first choice

Very good service and a delicious breakfast, spacious bedroom and an excellent location close to the centre of Oudtshoorn. We highly recommend this B&B as a super starting place for a sightseeing trip

My friends and I stayed here this past summer. The rooms were very clean and comfy. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic. However, what really made the place were the owners. They gave us recommendations for restaurants and food (even making reservations for us at nearby restaurants). They gave us tips on things to do and things not to do. Their helpfulness was above and beyond what I have received from other guest houses. I have other friends who are traveling in South Africa this summer and this I've recommended they go here as well. Thanks for the great stay!

The Gumtree has far exceeded my expectations, undoubtedly a recommendable place...
The owners were more than friendly and retailer during stay. Gourment breakfast and exquicito...
the room was very clean and very comfortable. We even got to enjoy the pool with views of the mountain range.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. The recommendations for places to eat and where to visit from Phil and Linda were first class. The Gumtree is conveniently situated and good eating places can be walked to or Phil will arrange a very reliable Taxi.
Excellent value.

Room Tip: Room by the river is good if you are interested in bird watching.

This lodge has everything it needs: a good location, friendly owners/staff, good value for money, a swimming pool and clean and luxurious rooms. The owners can tell you everything about South Africa, wines and food. Next to this, they serve a very good breakfast with local products and house made bread. This is THE place to stay in Oudtshoorn!
