I wish that we'd had a couple of days to spend at Gumtree. Linda and Phil put a lot of energy into the experience for their guests, from maintaining lush landscaping, to a swimming pool, beautiful rooms and good food. They can provide you with information about the area and other parts of South Africa. We stayed on our way...

Oudtshoorn, SA, know as Ostrich Town, is a quaint town. The Gumtree Guest House fit the bill. The owners intermingled with the quests at the complementary cocktail hour, as well as during the scrumptious made to order breakfast. The town, with several fine restaurants (Ostrich cuisine), was a walk away from the Gumtree. Highly recommend and would go back.

Wonderfully friendly and helpful hosts (local information, made phone bookings for restaurant and visit to Cango caves for us), very clean and comfortable rooms, great breakfast, lots of extras like a fridge in the room and towels for swimming. Would definitely recommend Gumtree.

What a fantastic B & B!!! Hosts Phil and Linda provided my wife Barb and I with an excellent place to be in for the brief 2 night stay, March 21 and 22, 2017. These two have nailed the B & B formula!! Which is - provide an excellent bed and an excellent breakfast. They do! Then add on to...

Gumtree is a wonderful choice for accommodations in Oudtshoorn. Phil and Linda were vigilant hosts, offering complimentary wine the first evening there and preparing a gourmet, made-to-order breakfast. They recommended a fabulous restaurant, Bello Cibo, and even joined us there for dinner. They both enjoy golf and my husband particularly enjoyed discussing courses in several countries with Phil. The location...

This was the third guest house stop on our tour staying for 2 nights. We were shown to room 4, a large comfortable room which was very clean and bright with good bedding. Complete with a newly refurbished bathroom fitted out to a very high standard. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty served by Linda and Phil the owners. The best...

We felt welcome here from the moment we arrived. The hosts are gracious and extremely helpful in planning activities and booking restaurants. The rooms are modestly sized but immaculately clean and tastefully furnished. Parking is secure. The location is superb. Breakfasts are a generous combination of fresh fruit, cereals, freshly cooked eggs and much more.

We arrived for one night, and stayed two! This is a really well run establishment. Phil and Linda provided everything to help us have a relaxing time. I liked the fact they have a bar open for a couple of hours in the evening, where we could talk to the other guests before going out for a meal. Phil books...
