Delightful & helpful hosts, loved having a drink & chat with them & friend before our walk. When we realised we wouldn't have time... More

Thank you to all the reviewers who recommended this lovely guest house. We really enjoyed our stay and wish we'd stayed longer, not just because of the warm hospitality but also because Oudtshoorn, with its spectacular scenery, deserves more than a one night stopover. After an hour or so socialising with our hosts and other guests in the bar we... More

We spent only one night here but hosts Phil and Linda couldnt have been more helpful. From cycling to ostrich tours to our onward bookings, they helped us with the practicalities, ensure we fitted in what we wanted to and even gave two of us a lift when we divided forces. And did I mention the setting? Fabulous verandah sundown... More

The guest house is in a nice location, close to shops and restaurants but also quite secluded. It has a couple of lovely terraces and a verandah outside the rooms which is a great place for having a drink from the owner's small "pub" on the premises and watching the sun go down. The rooms lack a bit of charm... More

We stayed at the Gumtree for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Phil and Linda are extremely welcoming and accommodating to their guests needs. Their home bar adds a lovely social aspect to your stay!
