I'm a little late in reviewing Bloomestate (May 2014) but feel I must say what an excellent stay we had at this very modern establishment. We stayed at Bloomestate on our Garden Route drive from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. Carla and Maarten were warm and very welcoming, making our overnight stay a most memorable one. Breakfast was an absolute... More

We stayed at the Bloomestate during our recent trip. Unfortunately we arrived late at night, however, Maarten booked us into a wonderful restaurant conveniently located across the street. The rooms are lovely, brand new and the attention to detail was delightful. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The Bloomestate is located on beautiful grounds which we were able to enjoy the...

Arriving to a mix up by hotels.com who had mistakingly cancelled our stay, Maarten quickly and discretely corrected and showed us to our room. The hotel is secure within gated grounds and the rooms are a short walk from the parking through beautiful gardens. The rooms themselves are gorgeous, very modern but also very cosy with huge windows looking out... More

We visited Bloomestate whilst travelling the garden route. This was one of 5 hotels / guest houses we stayed in whilst we were in SA and for me this was the best. The rooms are spacious and luxurious with large glass windowed doors with views across the garden. Every detail had been thought about. Breakfast was delicious and excellently presented.... More

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. How... More

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
