From arriving there and being greeted by the Anton in the parking area, to the friendly staff, cozy fireplaces, incredible view, and delicious breakfasts and dinners, Blue Gum is by far the finest establishment I've stayed in for a weekend R&R. In fact, it's so nice we didn't want to really leave the grounds to explore, so we didn't. :)

Everything one could wish for to get away from a busy life - beautiful rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and superb food and wines. Even the dark mountain water adds something special. There are 2kms of gravel road to get to Blue Gum Estate so rather use the Range Rover and leave the Ferrari at home. Excellent value -... More

Fantastic wedding, amazing place, great food, lovely accommodation. Anton and his family gave us the most wonderful, unforgettable experience. Would definitely recommend, whether for a stay, wedding or simply for lunch/ dinner. Thank you so much.

Blue Gum Country Estate is a tranquil piece of Tuscany in Stanford. I went for a mid week break and the hospitality and facilities were much more than I expected. I was completely blown away and left feeling relaxed and special.

My husband and I had a charming stay at this resort. Attention to detail is fantastic, food is above average and the owner is hands on. We loved the walks and being so close to nature. We will be back.

And Mom and Dad feel comfortable to let them wonder and explore in safety. Food is simply superb (look forward to putting on extra kilos....)... More

Looking for an escape from the Cape Town winter weather, we headed for Blue Gum on a personal recommendation. The small, family run hotel lies in a beautiful valley, close to Hermanus. We found the owners to be extremely friendly and accommodating. Great with the needs of young kids and helpful in finding activities for them! Our family room was... More
