We booked the Blue Gum Country Estate for our wedding, hoping that the reviews here on Tripadvisor had some truth in them, given that we could not come in person to inspect the site until a week before the wedding. We are delighted to say that the Blue Gum exceeded all our expectations: Anton was supportive, communicative and helpful, his... More

Absolutely wonderful family getaway about 2 hours out of Cape Town situated in the beautiful Overberg valley - Anton and his staff are extremely hospitable and hands on, food is out of this world, facilities well catered for children who will enjoy the freedom and adventure of Blue Gum. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, close to sights - Hermanus, Stanford,... More

Our young family was very well looked after while staying here; we extended our stay to 5 nights because of the amazing service, beautiful surroundings & delicious food. Our 2 year old twin boys had plenty of space to run around, play in the playground & we're safe at night in the closest family cottage while we dined in the... More

It was a very memorable stay a place that we will visit again. We enjoyed the peace and quite and hospitality. The surrounding areas beautiful for hikes and drives. The food was good at the Blue Gum Estate at night including a big spread for breakfast. They also went out of their way to accommodate us in a special meal.

On arrival, my first impression was that things looked a bit run down. The tennis court needs money spending on it, the buildings could do with a lick of paint, some of the rooms need to be brightened up. However Anton and his team soon made up for that, from start to finish they were fantastic hosts and could not... More

From arriving there and being greeted by the Anton in the parking area, to the friendly staff, cozy fireplaces, incredible view, and delicious breakfasts and dinners, Blue Gum is by far the finest establishment I've stayed in for a weekend R&R. In fact, it's so nice we didn't want to really leave the grounds to explore, so we didn't. :)

Everything one could wish for to get away from a busy life - beautiful rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and superb food and wines. Even the dark mountain water adds something special. There are 2kms of gravel road to get to Blue Gum Estate so rather use the Range Rover and leave the Ferrari at home. Excellent value -... More
