          Fabulous Gumtree”
          I had two great days at Gumtree with Phil and Linda as wonderful hosts who gave me very good recommendations on what to see and where to eat ..... perfect for me as a first time international visitor. Very comfortable accommodation with secure parking and a lovely breakfast in a terrific location within a couple of minutes walk of good restaurants.

          A good, cost effective, guest house ”
          Phil & Linda were excellent hosts. Our room was medium sized, basic but satisfactory for our visit. Breakfast was lovely. Short walking distance to good restaurants and 45 minutes drive to the Cango Caves (which were hugely impressive). Accommodation is a terraced ‘cabin’, consisting of bedroom and bathroom. Not overly homely.

          Well looked after”
          We enjoyed our brief stay at the Gumtree. Phil and Linda were very helpful in making us feel most welcome. We had a braai while we were staying here and were provided with everything we needed to do so. We didn’t use the pool but it looked clean, there is a nice sun deck surrounding it. The room was large and spotless with an ample bathroom. The air con was great and we had our best nights sleep here. You can also get a beer or wine from the bar in the evening. The breakfast was superb (don’t fill up on bread like I did!) and we left very satisfied. They have a little dog called Domino which was friendly and playful. We had lunch in town at Mamash - very nice and did the cage diving with crocodiles at Cango Wildlife Ranch. I definitely recommend staying here.

          Very friendly and professional owners, room, and breakfast
          I truly enjoyed staying at the gumtree! A really lovely place... The rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean. It is in a quiet road with a nice view. I felt like home thanks to the friendliness and professionalism of the two owners. Breakfast was superb with fresh ingredients coming from the local farms and wineries. It was nice to go to the bar around 6 and chill in front of the fireplace with a nice glass of wine or craft beer chatting with Linda and Phil (the owners). They gave us a lot of advice about where to go and what to do. I will definitely go back there. The best guest house I have ever been to!! I greatly recommend it!!

          Stayed 3 nights in lovely room overlooking suspension bridge. River was unfortunately dry. Lovely pool area. fantastic breakfasts with all local produce. The owners really did look after us. very friendly and helpful and very 'hands on' which was lovely. Small bar near breakfast room and spent 1 evening chatting to owners for ages. Walking distance to town centre - safe. Average choice for restaurants - must go to Buffelsdrift for a meal - fantastic setting on game reserve - need car tho. Would def recommend.

Good quality rooms and a lovely breakfast with home made fresh bread both mornings.. Near the town centre with good restaurants ..recommendation of Nostalgie by hosts particularly enjoyed for its excellent local/South African food . There is a very good drop off and collect laundry just up the road from the guest house. Small clean pool which was very refreshing at the end of a hot day touring around the area . Would like stay again! ...

          Guesthouse perfection. Look no further.”
          Comfort level of the room, fabulous owners and location
          From the moment I drove through the gate at Gumtree Guesthouse, I was treated like a friend, and after a long day and having been away from home for a number of months, this was certainly appreciated. The gardens and the views from the verandah were just lovely, and the room was a really nice surprise. The wall panel heater had been put on prior to my arrival to take the chill out of the room which was greatly appreciated. The decor is a simple African theme. A mini bar was offered which sets Gumtree apart from most other guesthouses. An electric blanket was on the bed to combat the chilly African winter nights. A welcome drink was offered at the bar in the early evening and offered an opportunity to meet the other guests. Phil and his wife are the loveliest people. Anything you need/want to know they can assist you with and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast has to be seen to be believed! Freshly baked bread, local cheeses and olives as well as the standard breakfast items. A truly great way to start the day. I cannot recommend Gumtree highly enough. You will not be disappointed...attention to detail is what they excel in!

          The garden, the breakfast and the location
          It was a small lodge with clean environment. It had a small but beautiful garden. The breakfast was good and the owners were friendly. The room given to us, though a bit small, was clean. It was within walking distances to some restaurant, though we chose a restaurant a few kilometers away (we had a rental car). The area was safe enough for walking at night (the owner of the lodge assured us of this).

          the stay here was great because our host was so friendly and nice. this is a quiet hotel with a small swimming pool. lots of birds in the trees in the morning. do not park under the big gumtree! the breakfast was amazing was a good spread of local food and fruit, as well as a hot meal. wonderful experience. electric blankets available. the host is able to recommend good restaurants near by. but our advice would be to drive out for meals instead, for safety. hotel is near a gas station and quite conveniently-near to the cango caves and cango wildlife if driving.
