After 24 years of marriage, I decide to surprise my wife on her birthday and book in at the Blue Gum Country Estate. The front desk staff was most friendly and helpful. Being family run, we were treated with the utmost intimacy and friendliness. To get away from crowds, to detox and eat 5 star food, then Blue Gum is... More

Bluegum has been my favourite getaway for some R&R for a while now. I love how they manage to uphold the highest quality and not lose their homely feel. My only complaint is that the rooms are so comfortable it difficult to pull yourself outside and see the rest of Stanford! Highly recommend their fillet for dinner.

Having had a chance of a sneek peek at all the beautifully appointed rooms of Blue Gum I must say that I would feel privileged an indulged to stay in any one of them. I stayed with some friends in a family room in the Mountain Cottages and I was so impressed with the attention to detail. I was there... More

Returned to blue gum after five years and was surprised at the positive changes, stayed for only one night en route toward garden route, the service was excellent and the room very comfortable, a very definite improvement now operated by the owners.

Had the pleasure of spending two nights here recently and all in all had a superb experience. Anton as a host is superb and takes pride in ones' wellbeing. We stayed in the family unit (mountain facing) and thoroughly enjoyed that, with nice touches (incl. a fireplace with ample wood supply, room service, etc etc - a little like what... More

We recently spent the night @ Blue Gum Estate to celebrate a birthday. What a wonderful warm atmosphere, Excellent accommodation - large room with own lounge and great attention to detail. We had an amazing supper for +45 people all served the most divine rump steak! Breakfast was another lovely meal. For a weekend escape from the hustle and bustle... More

At the gate the U from Gum had fallen off and the entryphone was held together with duct tape.However these minor faults did not detract from the excellence of the stay'.I merely mention them as they give an unsettling first impression.

We visited Bluegum Country estate as a couple and as part of a birthday gift for my fiancee. We only spent one night there but was quite pleasantly surprised with what we found there. When approaching the venue it is somewhat deceptive at first appearance as it does not look like very much. However, once you step inside at reception... More

I had a lovely mountain facing room with beautiful views. The bed was very comfortable and more importantly hot water in the shower. The young owner, Anton, was always present to make sure the guests were happy. Nothing seemed too much trouble for him. Wonderful service in this day and age. The food was delicious and 40 plus guests at... More

We held our daughter's wedding celebration at Blue Gum. It was an outstanding success and very happy occasion due mainly to the excellent service and attention to every detail provided by Anton and his team. The food was of a very high standard and the accommodation was very comfortable.
