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.

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

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding Anniversary at the Blue gum country estate. We loved our elephant room in the Manor house. It is tastefully decorated, very spacious and has a private veranda overlooking the vineyards. The attention to detail was appreciated, electric blankets ensured we were warm when we arrived back late after dinner in Stanford.... More

We visited Blue Gum on our Garden Route Trip. We only stayed one night but had a wonderful reception and had one of the best meals we had on our trip. We will certainly go back if we visit South Africa again. We can thoroughly recommend a visit to the Estate.

Blue Gum is a lovely location to relax. Our room in the Manor House was spacious and very comfortable with lovely views across the vineyard.

We spent a long weekend at Blue Gum for a family wedding in March. The Blue Gum team exceeded every expectation and made an already special weekend, even more memorable. Anton was the last to leave after the wedding festivities finally wound up (somewhere around 4am), and was back first thing for breakfast. It would be difficult to to find... More
