“Great place, beautiful accomodation!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stayed in 2012 as well in 2009 in Bloomestate. Beautiful accomodation designed and laid out in seperate buildings for guest suites, lounge area and breakfast area. All in modern ("Starck") design with an African touch. Upon arrival the hosts (a very friendly dutch couple) welcomes you with a nice glass of wine in the lounge area. Rooms (I think they have about 8 suites) are very spacious and modern and contain all amenities. Breakfast is very good and is served in a seperate building. The total are on which the lodge is situated is very large with a large pond, fruit trees etc. The two friendly ridgeback dogs are lying at the door or are playing on the lawn. We will defenitely visit Bloomestate again.

A wonderful place to relax. The attention to detail was second to none, from the umbrellas placed outside the rooms on rainy days to our car being washed while we were asleep!
Breakfasts were a delight, a real gourmet experience and not to be missed.
Rooms are contemporary and fully equipped, beds are super comfy!!! Jacuzzi, swimming pool, pond, gardens, lemon orchard...what more could you ask for?

We will definitely be back!


Outstanding breakfast

Room Tip: All rooms looked equally good, all lead out onto the wonderful gardens.

We stayed already a couple of times here and we are never disappointed.They keep the stander high as before and are always busy with something new or to change. We stayed for 2 nights but this is too short as they are not far from some nice vineyards and the sea.
You will see us again in the future.

Bloomestate is such a wonderful place to stay. Everything is so beautifully decorated and clean. The hospitality of Maarten and Carla is warm. They both run this bussiness with their heart. Breakfast is original and creative. It was good to be back and it certainly wasn't our last time.
