When one visits the famous Garden Route in South Africa, Swellendam is a logical first place to stay coming from Cape Town. A nice little town, with a lovely mountain range behind hind it.

We had a wonderful stay in Bloomestate!! The location is stunning and very peaceful, and the rooms are pleasant with a very spacious bathroom. But definitely what made our stay unforgettable was the hospitality of Carla and Maarten, the owners. They helped us with our trip arrangements and suggested very helpful tips.. Their two dogs are just wonderful too! Attention... More

From the moment Scamper and Borat (the cutest dogs) welcomed us at the gate, we felt at home. Carla and Marteen were such sweet and generous hosts. Although we stayed there for 2 nights only, every detail counted: a charming spacious green estate surrounding the exquisitely decorated rooms, a very nice lounge, a fresh clean pool, a perfect service and...

We spent 5 beautiful days at Bloomestate. We loved every minute of it! Carla and Maarten are the most wonderful hosts. They were very helpful in arranging day trips, transportation, restaurant reservations, and wine tasting for a group of 13 of us that stayed at Bloomestate. Being guests in South Africa, this was most helpful. They made us feel at... More

This time, since both of us had to work, we got the chance to sit at the (very stylish) lounge for longer periods of time and appreciated the comfort on... More
