A few kms outside Stanford, the Blue Gum Estate has some of the most comfortable and inviting public areas (lounge, dining area, bar with balcony) I've come across in a long time. Wish we'd had more time to curl up there. Loved our room, really spacious and with an open fire, a big bath-tub and a double shower!. We didn't... More

Awesome family holiday thanks to Anton and his team at Blu Gum. Made to feel very welcome. Ideal set up for kids with great facilities for them to roam and play. Room was perfect and a lovely cheese selection with port to settle us in. The food here was great and a wonderful wine list of local wines too. Compliments... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our night away at Blue Gum, our daughter loved the play area so much she cried when we went inside. Fire place in the rooms and restaurant was amazing as the weather was terrible. Very spacious room and accommodating staff. The meal for the night was a chicken dish but the owner and chef cooked us up... More

Blue Gum Estate is situated on a beautiful farm, away from everything. The rooms are beautiful and has all the comforts you can imagine. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I think the best part of our stay was breakfast, a meal the estate takes very seriously, other than the great food, the smell of the fresh country air... More

We had an amazing time at Blue Gum, very warm welcome and friendly stuff. The food is excellent -breakfast and dinner! Anton help us to find nice attractions around - we did horse riding and we took a cruise to watch the wheals from gansbai. We definitely will be visiting at Blue gum again, thank you for an amazing time!

My family enjoyed a weekend away at Blue Gum. We stayed in the family room which was very comfortable, fireplace, heaters and tea and coffee making facilities etc. There is a nice playground for smaller kids, a tennis court (may be an idea to bring your own racquets and balls), and a boule court (also good idea to bring your...

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
