After our arrival, Carla welcomed us with a welcome drink in the lounge and a small tour over their beautiful estate. The room was immaculate: a huge, stylish and modern room, with a great view on the garden and the mountains, an iPod docking station, Barcelona-chairs, a well-filled minibar and a huge bathroom with bath and rain shower. Breakfast is... More

We stayed in Bloomestate on our way to the garden route. Its the perfect first stop from Cape town. The owners are very passionate and know how to run the business. With their lovely breakfast, nice pool and amazing jacuzzi (with a glass of wine in the evening) its a perfect place to stay for a couple of days. Their... More

We have been a regular guest at Bloomestate, but every time we arrive we got a smile on our face when we are warmly welcomed by Carla and Maarten. Over the years Bloomestate kept its high standards in hospitality and love of good wine and food. This time we have experienced something new when Maarten showed a bottle of Inverroche... More

We spent our last two days in South Africa at this wonderful place. It was perfect down to every detail. Warm and personal welcome. Clean, beautiful and practical rooms. And if you´ve ever wondered if it´s possible to make art out of the scrambled eggs for breakfast... just wait and see :) Friendly staff and owners who make your stay... More

My thirteen year old son and I were traveling the garden route and need a little down time. We arrived to a warm welcome from the owner, who showed us around the estate ,recommended things to do in the area and also recommended local restaurants. Our beautiful cottage overlooked the pool and gardens. The modern cottages are very comfortable and... More

...and even a bit more is what you can expect when staying at the Bloomestate. The gardens, guest rooms, hosts, dogs and spa services are fabulous, not to mention the famous breakfast. Our expectations were high after reading the Tripadvisor comments about it, but Maarten and Carla managed to succeed them by far! Forget Swellendam, and stay every minute you... More

We were very happy to go back and stay at Bloomestate over the Xmas holidays. Carla and Maartin run this boutique guest house that only has a handful of rooms, all of which are spacious and quiet. They are always helpful with ideas and suggestions on nearby places to visit and restaurants to dine at. Their breakfast is probably the... More

Bloomestate is a very lovely guesthouse. We've enjoyed our stay very much. Maarten & Carla are amazing hosts and made our stay very relaxing. We loved the interior design of the lodges and the special care to detail. And the breakfast was the best we've had during our entire holiday!! PS. book a massage at the spa next door: Rain.

Set in beautiful grounds and run by a lovely Dutch couple that cannot do enough for you, this place is a hidden gem. All the rooms are chalet style within the grounds, modern and very well appointed. The beds are comfortable, the breakfast excellent and the grounds a delight. For those interested in birdlife, there is an impressive list of... More
