I stayed one night in one of the lower suites, which are huge and very comfortably and tastefully furnished. The room is romantic, with a four poster bed with a draped mosquito net, a sofa for watching TV, heavy black-out curtains and a full bathroom with bath and shower. There is also a private terrace with comfortable chairs, from where... More

We spent a weekend at Blue Gum Country Estate in July with another family. We had such a fantastic time in Stanford. There was plenty for our group to do with five kids between four and nine years old. The adults were very happy with great food and plenty to drink and fires to sit next to. The staff are... More

The food in the evenings was a welcome set 3 course menu delicious and beautifully prepared. However the main feature that ensures us returning is... More

We spent a night at Blue Gum this weekend, which was obviously too short. The accommodation, beautiful surroundings, service,and food were all just simply outstanding. The staff are happy and cannot do enough, Margaret and Patience were there for our every need and whim. The high tea was decadent, dinner a taste sensation and breakfast excellent. A well recommended place... More

A few kms outside Stanford, the Blue Gum Estate has some of the most comfortable and inviting public areas (lounge, dining area, bar with balcony) I've come across in a long time. Wish we'd had more time to curl up there. Loved our room, really spacious and with an open fire, a big bath-tub and a double shower!. We didn't... More

Awesome family holiday thanks to Anton and his team at Blu Gum. Made to feel very welcome. Ideal set up for kids with great facilities for them to roam and play. Room was perfect and a lovely cheese selection with port to settle us in. The food here was great and a wonderful wine list of local wines too. Compliments... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our night away at Blue Gum, our daughter loved the play area so much she cried when we went inside. Fire place in the rooms and restaurant was amazing as the weather was terrible. Very spacious room and accommodating staff. The meal for the night was a chicken dish but the owner and chef cooked us up... More
