Cannot fault the attention to detail of Carla and Maarten. We arrived late afternoon on Easter Sunday and our first question was, "Where can we eat?" Well, Easter Sunday meant many places were closed, and those that were open were fully booked. Fortunately, Marten had anticipated this and booked us in to a lovely restaurant just along the street.

Friends recommended Bloomestate to us. Carla and Maarten's warm welcome in their beautiful oasis was just the beginning of a wonderful, much too short stay. It is perfect in every way from the beautiful garden, the outdoor jacuzzi nestled in lovely trees and verdure, the well proportioned and well appointed, spacious, tastefully furnished rooms to details such as well placed...

Very unfortunately, we had only one night at Bloomestate - the last of our South African road trip. I wish we'd been able to stay longer and relax in the simply gorgeous gardens and use Swellendam as a base for exploring the area. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome by the amazingly hospitable and friendly... More

We stayed one night in Bloomestate and were astounded by the quality service and accommodation. Our room was delightful with a luxurious en-suite. A great lounge room is available for guests use with an honesty bar, games, books and comfortable couches. There is a small pool and jacuzzi. The estate also has an orchard which is lovely for a stroll.... More

We had booked our stay here as part of a two week tour of the Western Cape. We wondered if three nights was too long in a town we didn't really know much about - how wrong we were! Bloomestate has been very thoughtfully designed as a modernistic and comfortable retreat by the owners Carla and Maarten. Lovely counterpoint to... More

We went on a three week tour across SA and stayed one night in Bloomestate. We have to say that this was our favourite stop and only wish we had made our stay here longer. The grounds are beautiful and the decor and design of the whole estate is amazing. The owners were super friendly and the breakfast the next... More

We only stayed one night but enough to see that Bloomestate deserves its high TA rating. Unique design features and decor with authentic Dutch flair and an excellent breakfast. Beautiful gardens and pool produces a tranquil and peaceful stay.
