Only had one night here, wished we had booked for longer. Lovely estate grounds, great room overlooking the pool and superb breakfast. Big surprise having the car washed for us!! The Italian restaurant booked for us by the hosts was just about the best Italian we've ever had. All in all the stay was perfect.

Every thing is great at this Hotel.I think it is because the owners are always there. They answer questions ,give local information and most of all make sure every thing is perfect. It is very stylish and modern which is unusual in Swellendam.

A great b+b in a beautiful setting. Carla and Marteen make you feel welcome and at home. The photo album with excursion proposals, made by Martin, in addition of being of great help is also a very original idea. The restaurants they recommended where of top quality. The breakfast served was the best during our trip in South Africa. What... More

Superb rooms, quality design and great hosts. What more is there to say about this guesthouse? We have travelled the Cape for two months, the Bloomestate Guesthouse, was by far our favorite. Being welcomed by Carla and Maarten, makes you feel at home at once. Their personal interest in making your stay a memorable experience is very much appreciated. From... More

The hosts, Carla and Maarten, take very good care of the guests, and make sure that everything is well arranged. I have spent some... More

Reasonably priced for bed and breakfast, Bloomestate is a wonderful stop along the Garden Route. The weather wasn't great whilst I was there, and the hot water bottle was very welcome in the evening. Breakfast is excellent - eggs cooked to order in a beautifully decorated room. The welcoming committee of Borat and Scamper are hilarious.

Nothing has been left to chance in this superbly run B and B. Lovely rooms, gardens and breakfast. Even the poached eggs were artfully decorated and that takes some doing. Woke up to find that our mud covered car had been washed! Many thanks. Lovely dogs too.
