This is an amazing place. One of our favorite places during our holiday. Everybody makes us feel so welcome. And the hospitality was even better than we expected. It is about half an hour from Hermanus and a nice and quiet place. Our daughter (1,5 years old) was also very happy to stay on this place.

A great kid-friendly hotel in a rural location (down a fairly long dirt track which got a little slippy in the rain) - we stayed with our 20 month old and really liked it - adjoining room for our daughter for no additional cost - lots of toys and play area outside with sandpit/swing/see saw etc - kids meals early...

Very friendly staff, beautiful and quiet environment, great comfort, truly exceptional dinners! We stayed here for 2 nights with a baby. The room was good, nice terrace with small playground. It is a good stay when you want to stay at the whale coast but want to keep distance to the busy en touristy hermanus.

We spent a relaxing day in the Stanford area. And welcomed at BlueGum by very friendly people. The facilities were great and the atmosphere very cosy. A great country break-away. Consider them for a charming and romantic get-away.

Wonderful place to unwind and disconnect. Service is exceptional even though we had a minor issue with a room it was resolved so pleasantly and without any hassle. Nothing is an issue for this team. Venue is quiet, beautiful and gentle as are the people! Food was great!

We had an awesome time, loved the hospitality. Well trained staff and the food was excellent. It felt like home away from home. The rooms are spacious with beautiful settings and well maintained. We'll definitely come back and bring the kids along.
