The room was nice and spacious, but please the rooms need more air circulation, they have a very stuffy smell or damp smell.

We arrived well after check in and upon opening our room, everything was a mess. The bed wasn't made up, used towels on the floor and empty food packets- this was we were welcomed to after confirmation that our room was 'ready'. First impressions count, worse when allocating rooms to people who arrived 2 hours after check-in. This needs to be attended to. The pool was dirty and there was absolutely no network reception in our room unless you stepped outside. I'm not even talking about the wifi limited only to the dining area. Other guests on motorbikes could have been more considerate...

I don't know what I expected, but we got more than we could have hoped for. Our stay was wonderful. Peter and the staff were friendly, attentive, caring and helpful at all times. The facilities are great, and the surroundings are beautiful!I wish I could go and hang out at Gumtree Lodge every week-end!!Phillip & Glenda Wood

This was our second visit to Gumtree Lodge, unfortunately it did not live up to its 4-star rating this time. The room we were in was extremely noisy, breakfast took quite a time after ordering and once it arrived, one persons' food arrived at a time and it was cold too. The TV in our room had very poor signal and limited channels, on one of the days there weren't any cups in the room to make coffee.We will unfortunately not make use of this accommodation again.
