“Superb Breakfast”
Reviewed April 20, 2007

Wonderful accommodation, our second visit, and the lounge is really an added value. The new owners are very nice and helpful. The rooms, bed and linen are lovely. Nice mini bar in the room and coffee and tea making facilities. The only thing is that it is very noisy at night because of the N2, you hear cars and trucks all night long. I can highly recommend this place to anyone and will return here whenever we visit South Africa again.

This was our second visit to this accommodation and always nervous about "will it be as good as last time?" ..and the answer is yes! Since new owners have taken over they have added a residents' loungs + more garden rooms...all in keeping with the original buildings. Karla and Maarten certainly know about customer service...and how! Faultless...even down to the daily car wash!
One comment I would make about comparing stays - our room was beginning to show the inevitable wear and tear of the visitor - this needs to be watched in order to maintain the very high standards of furnishings this accommodation offers.
Otherwise, a perfect stay...maybe even for a third time!!

We stayed at Bloom esate for 3 nights which was enough time to explore the town of Swelendam along the garden route. We were greeted by the owners Karla & her husband and immediately made to feel at home. There are 7 rooms in total with a lovely swimming pool surrounded by lush gardens. The rooms were very tastefully decorated, beach towels provided and 4 extra bath towels which were changed daily. Storage space was sufficient, air con available, bathrooms had rain shower and huge bathtub. The price included breakfast which was delicious and fresh. There are plenty of good restaurants in the town. Next door to bloom estate is an italian deli/restaurant which make the best pizza i've ever tasted. Another excellent restaurant to try is Roosje van de Kaap but booking is essential. Apparently this has been voted best restaurant in the garden route for 3 years running. There are'nt lots to see around Swellendam but Bontebok game reserve is worth seeing. Hiring a car is essential. Most of the time we spent lazing around the pool. There's a jacuzzi secluded in the garden area. The only dowside was the traffic noise as the estate is on the corner of a busy road. But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here due to the friendly hosts, georgeous suroundings, great weather, great food, who needs more?

We stayed here for one night. Very nice place. Beautiful rooms with all requirement s met. Very spacious & tastefully decorated rooms. We stayed here as a stopover for our garden route trip from capetown. Beautiful breakfeast. Could not fault this place. Swellendam itself did not have much to offer so 1 night was plenty. .Ideal as stopover resting place if driving the garden route. Very relaxing place! A job well done & would reccomend to anyone.
