“Stylish B&B”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Stayed for 3 nights in the run-up to Christmas. The accommodation (2 blocks of 4 rooms) is located in nicely landscaped garden. Rooms are large and very tastefully decorated (lots of nice design touches). Owners were really friendly and helpful throughout our stay. There's a good pool (essential as temperatures soared above 30C while we were there). Swellendam was very quiet during our stay, maybe because of Christmas, and be warned that its a LONG walk into town. The B&B is close to a busy-ish road so you do get some traffic noise, but it didn't really bother us. Would definitely stay again (even as a stopover while doing the Garden Route). There's a spa next door (linked to the B&B) but we didn't try it. Cute dogs.

If you are into style, design, that sort of things, then this is the place for you! It just oozes with it everywhere! Into the rooms, that all come with their own decoration (ours was the purple room this time), through to the lounge and the breakfast area. Maarten is akin to Steve Jobs. Everything simply has to be perfect, and little details that betray that abound everywhere. We won't reveal too much but ask him about why there isn't any echo in the breakfast room and why it is still possible to talk and hear each other even when the room is full, or why ladies will feel at ease sitting on the black and white sofa there... Carla is simply adorable and will make you feel very welcome and so will the 2 lovely dogs that also live there. Swellendam is a charming little village and you will then find plenty of good restaurants around, but also a day spa right next to Bloomestate now. Highly recommended.

A very warm welcome from Carla and Maarten was the start of our fantastic stay at Bloomstae on the 16th and 17th of november 2013. We stayed in the green modern and comfortable room situated in the middle of a fabulace garden with a wide diversity on threes and birds. Starting with a breakfest in the morning that we will never forget. The best we had during our three weeks trip throughout South Africa. Relaxing at the pool, reading a book and so and then a chat with other guests, Thats holliday Before we had to say goodbye, we got plenty of tips to go and to have a save trip. Maarten and Carla thruely understands what hospitality means.

Room Tip: Don't mis breakfast

Delicious breakfast (the best of this year's holidays), spacious rooms, nice garden, good location and very friendly and helpful Carla and Maarten! It was already the 7th time in Swellendam but our first time at Bloomestate, a very nice discovery. Definitely a place to come back to!
