The Gumtree guest house is an absolute Gem, an oasis situated right in the heart of Oudsthoorn! Phil and Linda went so far above and beyond to make us feel welcome, I can't thank them enough! Go there

We stayed for one night - the room was beautiful: roomy, a nice bath, and good bed. The house itself is beautiful as well, and we had a lovely night looking at the stars by the pool with the trees around us. Linda was lovely. Phil was a bit less welcoming as we arrived after the recommended 6 pm check...

Had a short two night stay at the Gumtree Guest House recently to visit the Meerkat Adventure and the Cango Caves. The room was of an extremely high standard as was all the other facilities. The hosts, Linda and Phil, were very helpful and booked our evening meal for us each night of our stay at restaurants they recommended. The...

The location is brilliant well within walking distance to shops and restaurants, also quite safe to do that. The lady who greeted us was very friendly and helpful, also due to it being my birthday I was greeted at breakfast with a cake and candle, lovely surprise and very thoughtful. Rooms good size with ensuite all very clean.

We stayed here one night in Feb, and agree with previous reviews. The place looks a bit "rustic" from the outside, but the room itself was fine, and more modern than we were expecting. The bathroom was up to date and spacious (it even had a bath!), the fridge was a good size, the air con worked well, and we...

Gumtree is ideally situated for walking round town. Phil will ensure you have all his help to enjoy visits nearby and make reservations as necessary. Gumtree rooms were functional; the pool is a great asset on a scorching hot day, as is Phil the barman when it's time for sundowners.

From the start of our stay at Gum Tree we were made to feel very welcome by Linda and Phil, the owners. They had all the local information needed to make our stay in Oudtshoorn very special and they were helpful and genuinely interested in their guests. The room was very spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean and an excellent bathroom....

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...
