    One of the very best—stay here.
    On the road 800+ nights around the world and this is one of the best, in every way. Super location, close but not too close to town—-quiet, beautiful morning birdsong. Clean, very comfortable bed and room—very peaceful, restful sleep. First rate room. Breakfast was superb—locally sourced, fresh juice, excellent cold and hot food, homemade bread. Beautiful breakfast room. And proprietors Phil and Linda all pull off this first rate guesthouse with graciousness and warm hospitality. And very, very interesting and engaging people they both are—just first rate human beings running a first rate guest house. You can’t and won’t go wrong—stay here if you are in or near Outdshoorn. You will be very happy you did.

    Pleasant stay.
    Our hosts Phil and Linda were very hospitable and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean. Great breakfast with good choices. Nice swimming pool area to relax around. Walking distance to some restaurants and shops. You have to be a bit careful leaving the premises by car as you are on a downwards slope and it is not to easy to see the traffic. Just a small point.

    A memorable stay and excursion with Phil and Linda
    Gumtree Lodge is perfect for a visit to Oudtshoorn and the surrounding areas. Phil and Linda are excellent hosts who are extremely knowledgeable and professional in their approach. Service is first class! The guest house is ideally placed for walking to a range of restaurants and Phil and Linda advised us about these. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was spacious and looked onto the gardens and pool. It had everything we needed. The bar and dining area are very tastefully decorated. There were too many extras to mention. An unforgettable memory is the circular tour through the Schwartberg Pass driven by Phil who provided a really well informed commentary. We would highly recommend this guided tour. We think that we were extremely lucky to have chosen Gumtree Lodge and highly recommend it.

    South Africa road trip
    We enjoyed returning to this fabulous Guesthouse. Phil and Linda are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Oudtshoorn experienced 2 power cuts while we were there and our hosts ensured we were inconvenienced as little as possible. We would highly recommend this gem of a Guesthouse and also a day trip over the Swartberg pass driven by Phil in his 4 x 4.
