From when we arrived we were made so welcome. We were shown a fantastic room with everything you need. The views were so beautiful when sitting on the veranda having breakfast we decided to stay another night from our original two night stay. We will definitely stay again.

Ten of us enjoyed a fantastic long weekend for at the Country House, more like our own home. It is a stunning and tranquil property, surrounded by vineyards. The kitchen was amazing, with matching china, teapots, pots, pans, baking and serving dishes. Although the oven was a little difficult to regulate (or was that the operator?). The sitting room, with... More

Overlooking vineyards from every side, our stay at Bluebush Estate was a delight from start to finish. Comfortable rooms and amenities as well as a delicious continental breakfast made the two day stay perfect. Friendly and helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble were a bonus. We will go back again.

I stayed with my partner here for my 21st birthday, and it was the perfect destination. We arrived at around 11:30 am, where we were able to check in immediately.

We stayed in the 5 room guest house with the regular B&B rooms. Rooms were reasonable in size and well appointed. Ensuite was a bit small. Air/con was very good. The only problem was that we found that the walls in this building were rather thin. In the night we could hear adjacent guests (and I'm sure that they could... More
