My fiancè and myself searched for months for a wedding venue. We are originally from JHB. So it was a mission non the less. But I must take my hat of to Anton from Blue Gum. From the minute we arrived, we were looked after like royalty. Drinks were brought to the pool for myself and my groomsmen. While my... More

We stopped at Blue Gum for 4 nights at the start of a 2 week long family holiday to South Africa and couldn't have been more pleased with the place. The service was superb, the food and wine equally superb, the rooms very nicely fitted out and the location a cracking place to relax and enjoy the peace. To top... More

This offers an oppertunity to relax and forget aobut the city life. service was excellent as well as breakfast. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The gravel road can be bad if you drive a car. Sufficient to do in the area and on the farm. Nice get away place

We stayed there for our 1 year anniversary and after a slight checking in problem the correct room was allocated to us and was everything we expected. We really enjoyed the farm feeling (insects and all) because it is great to break away from the city and just enjoy the beauty of our country and nature. The staff was really... More

The location is stunning, the staff are friendly and the rooms are nicely decorated but the whole place is overrun with millipedes. I don't mean a few, I mean 10s of hundreds! They swarmed the outside doors and made their way into the halls, bedrooms, bathrooms and we're coming up the bath drains. I couldn't sleep from sheer fear of... More

Dear h_Crawford Many thanks for the review, and my sincere apologies that it was more like a night from a horror movie than a relaxing holiday for you and your sister. I appreciate that there are positive points to your review, I have passed these on to relevant staff. However, the stay was obviously marred by the millipedes. We affectionately... More

We absolutely loved our time spent at the Blue Gum Country Estate. From the friendly, welcoming service, to the exquisite room we stayed in- you can’t find a better place to spend a quiet, relaxing weekend away. We highly recommend it and will definitely be back!

We spent a very peaceful 9 nights at Blue Gum in February and loved it - and we really wished we weren't moving on to another area when we left. The location and food are wonderful, but the service deserves a special mention since they really go out of their way to help in any way they can. Our daughter... More

"The perfect way to escape the hussle and bustle of CPT. Attentive staff and family members made this a highlight of our SA holiday. Relaxed and informal, though elegant, well worth a trip. Raka vineyard and Klein River cheese farm on the doorstep are well worth a visit."

We stayed for 2 nights and were very glad to have done so. Our room (Honeymoon Suite) was very comfortable and spacious and nicely furnished. Breakfasts and evening meals were very good. Anton was very helpful and all in all it was a very relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
