Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jenny and Jorg are fantastic hosts, friendly and welcoming, with lots of tips and advice. The room is very comfortable and the spa was a delight! The breakfasts are delicious. The grounds are wonderful for birding, and the easy walk to see playtus and flying foxes was great! I can't imagine a better place to stay in the area..

This was our second stay at Gumtree on Gillies (we were there 3 years ago). This time we stayed in the Moroccan room and we really liked it. Lots of natural light plus the screened window above the bed opens to allow wonderful fresh air. Our host, Penny, was great as was the in-room breakfast (loved the fresh-squeezed juice!). Comfortable King size bed, super quiet room, great host.

After searching high and low for a place to stay on one of the busiest weekends of the year (we didn't know) but we called up and were greeted by one of the friendly hosts Jorg! We were wary because the pics online weren't great but as soon as we stepped in the room my partner and i were blown away by the beautiful, spacious African nights room...pics did not do it justice! The spa was incredible.and everything was decorated so thoughtfully...even the DVDs left here to watch were "out of africa" "african queen" "last king of scotland" and "africa calling" which was a funny and thoughtful touch. There is a fireplace you can use as well as complimentary port and chocolates and coffee and cereal among other things. Complimentary breakfast was absolutely wonderful and much more effort put into it than any normal hotel or b&b or resort. Location is ideal, a short walk to see platypuses and visit a lovely restaurant (Nicks)...basically a killer combination! We are definitely coming back...you won't be disappointed!

❤❤❤ I love that owners Penny and Jorge are very hands-on, cheerful, and accommodating to our requests. The African Nights suite is spacious, cozy, and invigorating experience for us. Good service and food— you won't regret spending your time and money there.

The Africa room was delightful (although the tv was very small). Hosts Penny and Jorg were extremely accommodating and shared their local knowledge on walks and wildlife. Breakfasts were delicious. Great location just outside Yungaburra village near platypus creek. We even saw a tree kangaroo next to their property!

We were only able to spend 1 night in this cozy B&B. We were pleasantly surprised by our spacious exotic room with a huge awesome bathroom. Penny provided a delicious hot breakfast & accommodated our specific preferences. She educated us on how to get to the walking track along the creek & were lucky enough to spot a platypus. She went the extra mile and picked us up at the local pub after our delicious dinner! If you're in Yungaburra - don't miss this gem!

Hi Barb and Ty, What a wonderful review... thank you so much!! It was such a pleasure to host you in "Morocco". As a small family business, it makes such a difference for us when we know people enjoy their time with us - no matter how short. I hope you had a great time for the rest of your trip. We would welcome you back to Gumtree anytime!

A perfect location close to the township of Yungaburra. Very quite with lovely 'themed' but functional room with open fire place and double spa bath. Plus a bottle of nice port! The breakfast foods were yumo and plentiful. The very hospitable hosts even provided us with a weber BBQ to cook our meal. This BnB would have to be the best value BnB on the Tablelands.

We absolutely loved our stay here. Penny and Jorg are perfect hosts, our African room was beautifully furnished...cosy, exotic... exceeding our expectations. The king bed was very comfortable and the open fire and spa bath made our stay feel very luxurious. The breakfasts were excellent. We'll definitely be back!
