“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

My family and I were doing a little road trip along R62 and stayed at the The Gumtree for 2 nights. We were met with a warm friendly face of Linda who showed us to our room which was nicely decorated and cosy. The B&B was in a super location and we managed to take in the Cango Caves and Cango Wildlife Ranch. Both Linda and Phil are great hosts, knowledgeable about the area and surrounds. They put on a super breakfast fit for a king (esp their warm farm bread made fresh every morning). Enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back.

TL;DR version = Pleasant accommodations. Good location. Great food. Fun owners.

We were a rowdy group of five that continually put our accommodations and hosts to the test wherever we went in Africa. Phil and Linda did not disappoint.

The rooms were nice - nothing extravagant, but clean and recently renovated with many noticeable nice touches. The breakfasts were some of the best I had along the way

We killed a few afternoons in the newly opened "pub" sampling some of Phil's extensive selection of wines, ports, beers, etc. He was super informative and helpful about accommodating our schedules, planning other activities, and making sure we were comfortable. This is a small operation, and you feel more like you are visiting a long-lost relative than staying at a hotel.

Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Phil!

My son and I came to Oudtshoorn for a gymnastics competition and we stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. Phil was expecting us when we arrived and our room was ready. The room was lovely and spacious with a gorgeous view. The breakfast was amazing with definitely the best bacon and eggs we have ever had :-) Perfect location for where we needed to be. We will definitely be back again next year.

I spent an unscheduled stop in Oudtshoorn and by chance found the lovely Gumtree B&B and its delightful owners Phil and Linda. They made me so welcome with very warm hospitality. My room was very well appointed, cosy and warm on a cold Karoo winter night. They even have electric blankets! Everything was immaculate and the breakfast was delicious. A great little Guest House, highly recommend it!

One of the best places I have ever stayed at. Warm welcome and excellent service from the owners. We stayed in the cottage and it was absolutely stunning. The rooms are beautifully decorated. And the breakfast was awesome! Will definitely visit again.
