My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend at bloomestate, and we could not have asked for better hosts! Carla and Maarten were attentive without being over bearing. The little personal touches and attention to detail made the entire weekend just that little bit more special - E.g. hot water bottles delivered to our room, kept the winter chill away.... More

We asked to have breakfast later one morning after a massage at the spa next door and they were happy to do this. They were also happy to show us what we could do... More

Carla and Maarten were superb hosts, breakfasts were well cooked with plenty of choice. Carla arranged dinner and transport both evenings. It's probably time to change the towels and bath mats, they were a little tired and worn. The gardens and pool area were well maintained and were beautiful. I would recommend staying here, on the edge of Swellendam.
