We've enjoyed our staff year-end functions for 3 years running now at Blue Gum and every year it is such a pleasure to stay in this country get away. The rooms are more than spacious and well-appointed - choose ones with a mountain view or view of the vineyards if you have the chance. Also, give yourself ample time to... More

We had a great time at Blue Gum.The service was very good.The Management and staff very efficient and friendly. The room was lovely.I thought though that the overhead fan was inadequate for the heat.A proper Air Conditioner would have pushed my review to an overall "excellent".

Try the house wine for a food start. Then enjoy the spacious room with view on the hills. The food we had for breakfast and dinner was delicious. Spare some time for the manager/owner, very talkative!

Beautiful setting, fabulous accommodation, outstanding food, excellent value but all wrapped up in a relaxed, comfortable and friendly package. The owners are totally hands on and happy to make your stay as special as possible. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Blue Gum for just one night on a weekend getaway, and I was thoroughly impressed. Let me count the ways: - The rooms are beautifully appointed. If you prefer a more light, airy, country-style feel, go for the mountain view cottages. We stayed in one of the manor house suites decorated in a colonial style, which was... More

Following a delightful boat ride down the Klein Rivier in Stanford with River Rat last Sunday, we looked for somewhere to have tea. Finding all the town's restaurants closed, we headed for Blue Gum Country Estate, a few kms outside Stanford. Here we received a warm reception, personalised service and the most delicious spread imaginable. Sitting out on a wide... More

We stayed for two nights in Blue Gum Country Estate. It is located in a quiet valley close to Stanford, and therefore is an attractive alternative for more busy places like Hermanus. Rooms are comfortable, nicely decorated in traditional country style, and spacious. Good bed, and small outside sitting area with good privacy. Only disadvantage may be the fact that... More

This hotel was very good as a stopover for our trip to Gondwana game reserve as we had a walk at de Kelders and came back and checked in. Anton greeted us very nicely when we checked in. We borrowed a movie from him and had a very pleasant sleep. The food was good and we woke up the next... More

Service was very, very good. Anton arranged a Braai on the boat in Stanford for us, which was really very nice. Very thoughtful service for us and our two daughters, suggestions for excursions even for our next stop om the day we left. Really nice room and beautiful environment, although the entrance road is a bit bumpy😃
