We stayed just one night at the Bloomestate but we could have stayed forever. The host is amazing. The rooms are really stylish and comfortable. The breakfast is lovely. The garden has a magical atmosphere. Still think about the most sweet and adorable rhodesian.

We checked in at short notice after a poor experience in a nearby town.Difficult to tell from the exterior as it is tucked away from street view but Bloom is an excellent 5 star B&B set on lovely grounds.Rooms are beautifully decorated and attention to detail is evident everywhere. Martin and Carla were very welcoming and the breakfast was stunning... More

I came to bloomestate to enjoy the beautifulness of the Overberg mountains, drink excellent wine's from the Robertson valley and relax. The lodge is situated on the foothills of the Overberg mountains on the edge off this historic town of Swellendam. The garden rooms, lounge and main house are spacious, clean and modern decorated. The breakfast is super, lots off... More

We were a family with 3 children and stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were beautiful, and bathrooms huge and spotless. We were given a warm welcome and the children all shared a room which was no hassle at all. The garden and grounds are lovely, and sadly for us it was raining so we couldn't enjoy the pool and...

We booked very last minute (same day!) and the hosts were hugely accommodating and welcoming. We were a party of three and they saw it no hassle to add an extra bed into one of the suites for us. The location is tranquil and immaculate. I have never seen a bathroom so clean! As three friends on a road trip,... More

What a fantastic b&b hidden away in Swellendam. Title 'b&b' doesn't do it justice. Rooms are fabulously decorated and host and hostess very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was superb. Was given a great recommendation by owners for dinner - Field and Fork - which was fabulous. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a stop off along the way.

This was a great experience, as well the authentic personal approach by hosts Maarten & Carla as well as the stylish accommodation & facilities (including great breakfasts which we optimally enjoyed!). Maarten even mended the tire of our rental car instantly so we could enjoy our stay in Swellendam & surroundings to the max. It really feels like home @... More

It was not my first time at Bloomestate but my experience was like it was my first time. Such a warm welcome and it feels like "coming home"! The breakfast was lovely, with fresh fruit, dutch cheese and eggs like you want them to have. We had a lovely day at the swimming pool with a good glass of Bloomestate... More
