Reviews for Blanco Guest Farm & Holiday Resort
Lovely place but, rooms (beds, bath and storage poor. When it rains, MUD MUD MUD!
Amazing place forki the whole family. They have a golf course, a bowls court, 3 tennis courts and a squash court.
Great place for families, very child friendly with supervised care for under 10s. Hearty, farm food and a variety of outdoor activities to choose.
Nice get away..last stretch of road a bit unpleasant.
Awesome place for a break away. Has loads of activities and things to do.
We are residents of Tarkastad....and Blanco is a mere 15 km away. Sometimes you do not really value the treasures on your own doorstep. Last weekend we had to choose a place to celebrate our 40 years of marriage. After some consideration, we chose Blanco, because we did not want to travel far and just needed peace and tranquility. Could not have made a better choice...it was a rather quiet weekend, which suited us fine....although we met new friends in visiting Selbornian parents. We were catered for, and treated, as royalty. We sincerely wish to thank Dave & Tessa, Chris & Kim...and our waitress Jeanette in making our stay a wonderful memory that should last until our 41st anniversary....xxxxx
Value for money, family fun holiday..delicious home cooked meals..country style. Friendly helpful staff. Home from home
Clean, old and peaceful. Cone here to relax
Best family hiliday ever. Ti farm experiance. Great staff, yummy foid and livley owners.
This is the second visit in 2 years and we have already booked again for next year. They have a pool, sauna, horse rides, golf 9 holes. They culture they have created with the the longstanding guests who keep coming back is amazing. The kids have more than enough to keep them busy and there are also Nannies that look after the kids that are not old enough to run around on their own. Always fun and they encourage spending good quality time with the kids. Pricing is relative and accommodation is clean and comfortable but make no mistake it is a working farm and they do not profess to be more than that.
"Food was good"
Hot water was not. Maybe temporary problem. Otherwise faultless.
"Outstanding service and facilities"
This little gem is really 'home from home' - we regretfully only stayed for 2 nights - would have loved to stay longer. The hospitality, outstanding facilities, delicious food and beautiful setting are all hard to beat. We will definitely be back - to take advantage of the extensive range of activities and enjoy the perfect peace.
It is a really nice place. One of the best places in Eastern Cape.
Blanco is a great getaway with activities for the whole family. There are however two ways to do Blanco, the one is to use the old cottages which are quite rustic and the other is to use the Manor House which is a newer double story house divided into fours units. The two are poles apart and if you're not into roughing it, I'd highly recommend opting for the Manor House. The catering is definitely not fine dining but that's also not their goal. The meals are still good and the portions more than sufficient. Please make sure you bring some cash as you'll probably want to tip the staff for a job well done.
