Blue Gum is a really lovely spot to escape to. Great walks, restaurants nearby, with the pool and tennis court being a big plus. The onsite restaurant is so convenient. The kids loved the Lego of course. Thank you

This was such a disappointing stay. We had a lovely room but we experienced no service whatsoever. It was as if management didn't remember that our room was occupied. We stayed at this property for 3 days. Housekeeping did not appear even once which is rather bizarre for a property of this kind. We did not have a self-catering unit and the website clearly states daily housekeeping. The water is borehole and the bottle of drinking water was never replenished. There was no soap to wash your hands at the basin. It just felt like there was no pride here. And it is such a pretty setting. The rooms are sweet and the beds ok. The breakfast was average but it came with a smile. The pool area is unkempt and rather shabby. Again, go find someone to ask for swimming towels if you want them. We had to text message if we wanted something which made us feel like we were difficult guests if we had a simple request. It is much better if the staff are attentive enough to anticipate reasonable needs like water and towels. With so many places to stay in this lovely part of the Western Cape, I suggest that Blue Gum up its game.

We had such a wonderful break away. Didn't want to leave. The Villa could sleep us all comfortably. The house was equipped with everything you'd need. The farm staff were so helpful and very friendly. Always greeted with a big smile. Loved our stay.
