We stayed at this B&B for two nights. Phil and Linda are perfect hosts and it's a great touch that they open up their bar in the early evening for a drink and a chat. We were in the 'smallest' room but it was more than adequate - who spends their holidays in their room anyway? Don't sell yourselves short...

My husband and I stayed here for one night only and it was great experience. The setting, the room and the breakfast were all excellent. Phil and Linda were most welcoming, shared their local knowledge and advised and organised a restaurant for our evening meal. Although short, it was a great stay and a place we will return to when...

We had a great stay with these friendly hosts. Everything were explained and all our needs anticipated and attended to. Breakfast includes mostly local produce and a fresh baked loaf of bread - we could not ask for more! Thank you for a much needed break! We will be back for sure!

We enjoyed the service that we received and loved the room. We did however find that the Free Wifi was on the slowside in the furthers room from the reception. We also appreciated Phil the owner's knowledge of everything and everything in and around Oudtshoorn and even in the adjacent towns. We will surely recommend the Gumtree Guest House and...
