A place to relax. Carla and Maarten are excellent hosts. The breakfast was fantastic. Beautiful garden with mountain view. Our car was very dirty after going through the Baviaanskloof. We were very happy when our car was cleaned without asking.

Bloomestate is an hidden gem situated in Swellendam. Carla & Maarten build the perfect hideaway in Swellendam. We are grateful to stay at Bloomestate and enjoyed the hospitality, rooms, pool and the relaxt atmosphere. Lovely eggs and I can highly recommended the omelette Vesuvius.

Enjoyed our return visit to Bloomestate immensely. We received a warm welcome from Carla and Maarten to this oasis of peace and serenity. Nothing is overlooked. Suites, garden, lounge and of course the wonderful breakfasts. Loved the candles in the trees in the evening and the car wash in the morning. Certainly deserves a 5 star rating.

The estate is an oasis waking up to birdsong of a morning. We stayed for one night on two separate occasions. The weather cooperated for us to sunbathe the first time and to drink champagne around the pool before cooling off for a swim. We appreciated the use of the golf sized umbrellas the second time. The breakfasts were amazing...

We stayed at Bloom Estate, sadly only for one night, on our tour of the Garden route. I am only say we wished we could have stayed longer . We were warmly greeted and welcomed by the host and shown round by the hosts Karla and Martin. The accommodation was stylish and luxurious with every attention to detail. Contemporary furnishings,...

Traveling on the garden route we felt Swellendam was a good place to have a stopover. Our family of 11 were warmly welcomed by our hosts at the door and shown around. The rooms are modern and there is a lovely games and drinks area to relax as well as the pool. Breakfast was a feast with the freshest ingredients....

Being on a long trip in South Africa, we asked travel agents ( Pangea Travel / Inspirations Travels & Tours ) to book our accommodations for a large part of our trip. As much as we love 'the traditional Bed and Breakfast' with it's frilly comforters, lacy pillows, antique doll collections and well meant pot-pouri bowls; the fresh and modern...

We travelled through South Africa for quite some time and have stayed in a large range of great hotels, but Bloomestate was definitely the most magnificent place that we stayed at! This boutique hotel offers everything for a very relaxing, but also exciting stay in Swellendarm. The perfect location allows one to reach many interesting sights within just a short...

We really enjoyed our stay at Bloomestate. The spacious property has a beautifully garden with great pool and jacuzzi. And with only a few rooms, it gave us the peace and quiet we were looking for without losing its charm. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated with all the necessary facilities. Breakfast is amazing with a lot of healthy...

We had a great stay at Bloom Estate, staying in the Red room, a beautiful room with a lot of privacy, close to the pool.
