This was awesome; comfy,clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The personal greeting card and cheese platter was extra special. Anton, the host was friendly and helpful. He has a wonderful chef as the... More

Blue Gum is close to Stamford an upcoming "foodie" stop on a wine and food tour of the Western Cape. It is more geared to families with young children than foreign couples on a one off trip. If you are put off by brown water, albeit safe, that comes from the estates own bore holes, this is not a place... More

We stayed two nights with our 8 year old daughter. I can't fault the hotel or the facilities. The staff are very welcoming and is in a lovely setting and a great location. Our room was cosy with an open fire and everything we required. My only negative is the "family restaurant" that you have to use if you are... More

The food was some of the best we've experienced in a guest house yet , the bedroom and suite was amazing - beautiful... More

We used a groupon for our stay and did not get one the best rooms but it was still very comfortable stay. The estate is beautiful and well kept. It was raining when we got there and the dirt road of about 2km's was full of potholes. Take note if you don't like driving on dirt roads. Staff very friendly... More

Stayed the weekend at the lodge. It was beautiful surrounds. Great to walk thru the grassy lawns and along the farm road past paddocks with horses and cows. Host Anton was super helpful and staff wonderful. Enjoyed surrounding activities such as Panthera large cat sanctury. Highly recommend this spot.

This was the third time we've visited Blue Gum Country Estate and all three visits have been exceptional. The first two times were anniversary getaways for two night stays and the third time was a family getaway with my parents and our 16 month old boy. In all three cases the service was friendly and exceptional, breakfast a treat and... More
