“Total Relax!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

I took an escape from work and stress and spent relaxing days at Bloomestate. Despite the fact that I travelled alone I felt so at home! Walking barefoot on the grass, reading books at the lazy swimmingpool beds and having an nice warm bubbly moment in the hot tub while the evening got chilly...
Maarten en Carla organized a very special program at the new RAIN forest day spa for me. The new Spa is next door Bloomestate and a true added value for a retreat like Bloomestate. The chilly nights were comforted by a warm water bottle in bed. Loved the room which has sunshine all day. Carla advised me to go for a trail walk in Marloth Nature Reserve at a 2km distance and I really enjoyed it. Every night they made reservations to nice local restaurants. I lOVED the luxurious scrumptious breakfast....actually... I LOVED everything and came out fully relaxed..

We chose Bloomestate based on other Trip Advisor reviews and expected the best. We were not disappointed with anything. The room was spacious and very well appointed. The view from the room was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. Our expectations were actually exceeded. We are retired so aren't traveling to get a break from work, but it was one of the most restorative nights we have had in four months of travel. I wish we could have stayed longer. Maarten and Carla have created a gem - I hope we can return some day.

Room Tip: Our room was nearest to the pond and the sound of the frogs at night was magical.

We only had a single nights stay at Bloomestate on our way through to Knysna and what a lovely stay it was, our host Maarten was so warm and welcoming, the room was very comfortable and had all that we needed, breakfast and the dining room were excellent, would definitely recommend it to others...

After a busy week in Cape Town, I decided to stay a bit longer in South Africa and to visit Bloomestate again. I remembered the great hospitality and relaxing atmosphere, and that had made make that decision.
Upon arrival I immediately felt very welcome, and the stay was really nice. Again, the breakfast was delicious, and it was nice to see how Maarten and Carla keep on refreshing the stylish premises. I got very friendly advice on what to do during this short stay, and how to best visit the Robertson Wine area.
I was very happy to have chosen to stay at Bloomestate and I will definitely be back!

Our fist 'holiday' since our daughter (11 months) was born was a mini break to Bloomestate in Swellendam. We have been there before and every time it is such a joy to stay there. We love the atmosphere, styling and vibe of Bloomestate. The beds are amazing, the night is very peaceful and silent and when you wake up in the morning, all you hear are the birds... Bloomestate is very baby friendly, Fe had her own cot in our room, loved crawling around in the massive garden and even had her own private bath robe :-). Maarten and Carla are wonderful and make us feel like VIP's every time we are at Bloomestate. We will most definitely go back!

We stayed for 2 nights in beautiful Bloomestate. The room and the environment were really nice and the owners couldn't be more friendly. The jacuzzi was a good bonus as well. Breakfast was delicious and they also gave some good advice for what to do for day trips. What really made the stay memorable was the personal touch of the owners.This made the service superb. We even got coffee to go! I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to everyone

We stayed with our family in this beautifull guesthouse. We hired 3 houses. A very beautifull environment with very good service and very friendly owners Maarten and Carla.
The breakfast was excellent, well prepared and of a good quality with a personal touch.
And beautifull eggmeals prepared by Maarten.
A great location to relax for a few days. Besides the guesthouse there is a spa where we had had good treatments: massage, manicure etc.
