Such a warm and friendly environment, on a beautiful property. The gardens are beautiful, I'll need to see them in the summer! Will definitely be back, and next time we will bring the kids. Thank you.

My hubby and I stayed at Blue Gum during May 2014. We were welcomed by a very friendly Joshua and given a welcome fruit kebab and bubbly whilst seated in the lounge overlooking the beautiful vineyard and country side. We stayed in the manor house - Guinea fowl room. This suite was very spacious with fireplace and own private patio... More

Stayed in the Monkey suite overnight. The room was very spacious and tastefully decorated with all the needed amenities. The TV has only 2 channels but you don't come here to watch TV, so didn't bother me. The views over the vineyards were breathtaking as were the grounds in general. The staff were excellent, right from the owner/manager to the... More

Great food, great scenery and overall a fantastic experience. Our little girl loved the play area, especially the sandpit. Friendly hosts and cosy fireplaces in winter make for a great stay. Well done Blue Gum, we'll definitely be back.

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Blue Gum Country Estate. We had a fantastic dinner on our first night there - the food was outstanding. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the staff were warm and very professional. Looking forward to returning one day.

Beautiful property. Excellent food and well run. Lovely winter retreat. The rooms are well appointed and my kids were exceptionally well catered for. We especially loved the size on the family rooms and the play area.

Heaven on earth, a place to re-charge the batteries and catch up. Extremely well trained and friendly staff and the lodge is owner run who also goes the extra mile. The meals are outstanding and creative. We will be back sometime.
