Reasonably priced for bed and breakfast, Bloomestate is a wonderful stop along the Garden Route. The weather wasn't great whilst I was there, and the hot water bottle was very welcome in the evening. Breakfast is excellent - eggs cooked to order in a beautifully decorated room. The welcoming committee of Borat and Scamper are hilarious.

Nothing has been left to chance in this superbly run B and B. Lovely rooms, gardens and breakfast. Even the poached eggs were artfully decorated and that takes some doing. Woke up to find that our mud covered car had been washed! Many thanks. Lovely dogs too.

This is an amazing little gem. We were warmly welcomed by the owners Maarten and Carla. The room was spotless and the beds were very comfy. The bathroom was perfect with one of the best rain showers I have ever used. Can't wait to return.

Don't leave South-Africa before visiting this breathtaking B&B owned by Carla and Maarten!!! It's not only the state of the art of their B&B but they know what hospitality means so... What are you waiting for??

Dinner was booked for us at Fork & Field Restaurant. This was a fabulous meal and I recommend making a plan to eat there if you visit Swellendam. On our return,... More

My husband and I stayed over for one night and we experienced country excellence at its best. The spacious queen room was decorated in modern Spring green colors. At our return from the night out we came back to a heated room and bathroom. We enjoyed private time in the Jacuzzi situated in a mini forest. Breakfast was fresh and... More

Calm and luxury accomodation that offers everything you may need and a very friendly and helpful host! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and the recommendations for dinner were excellent. They even washed our car overnight that was rather dirty after two days of dirt roads! A perfect place to stay!
