My partner and I love nothing more than going away for a night or a weekend and thus we've been to quite a few places. Blue Gum is now firmly a favourite of ours and we hope to return soon. Irrespective of the time of year – this place is perfect. And absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the honeymoon suite... More

we had a fantastic time at the Blue Gum. The room was well appointed, it even had two bathrooms. we loved the little sitting area. Breakfast had a good variety and every morning a different hot breakfast special was available. The eggs benedict were amazing. On arrival there was a nice cheese platter and some sherry in the room. They... More

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.
