The quiet location, with stunning views, and high standards kept by this friendly family run small hotel, make it a MUST stay place. The rooms are all large and beautifully decorated with...

Had a great first anniversary weekend away, we were well and truly looked after and the whole team really made it special. Great surroundings and very close to an array of activities. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Stayed in the mountain view room. Only one night unfortunately but Gumtree is tranquil and the view from the room looking out to the mountain in the morning was great. All the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Next.time will be there for longer.

From arrival until our departure four days later, our stay at Blue Gum was one of the highlights of our touring holiday in the Western Cape. Situated on a hillside just off of the R326 about 6 km east of Stanford, the hotel offers peace and tranquillity in large and extremely comfortable guest rooms and beautifully manicured gardens. The style...

What a treat , from the minute you arrive you are treated like family, nothing is to much for the staff . And all the little extras like pillows on your deck chairs , complimentary high tea , the waitress remembering what wine you ordered at dinner . Unbelievable dinners and breakfast. Beautiful 2 days an amazing way to recharge...

After starting our trip in the center of the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, we arrived to the tranquility of Blue Gum and could not have asked for more. The owner, Anton, drove us to our shark dive bright and early at 530am and was such an interesting person to talk to. We did not have our own car...

Stayed at the Stanford Valley Guest Farm down the road, but had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Blue Gum. One of the few restaurants around Stanford not closed for dinner from Mondays to Wednesdays. Beautiful gardens. Tastefully decorated interior, good background music, really good food and well presented. Very good atmosphere as well. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful....
