“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

When entering Bloomestate we entered a stylish and beautiful garden. Our room was very well designed with all the creature comforts that you could wish for (for sure the best bathroom I had in a long time).
The hosts are very welcoming and attentive. They made pre bookings for us at two local restaurants which we were glad to take. It was a very nice place to relax next to the pond, in the pool or simply in the room wich the huge doors wide open to the garden.
Also the breakfast provided was very good.
We enjoyed our stay a lot.

We made a trip to south africa for 4 weeks with 10 different accomodations, this was the very best!!! Carla and Maarten were perfect hosts in their very very beautiful guesthouse. We had nothing more to wish. Unfortunately we just stayed there for two nights.

Within our 3 weks round trip in November 2013 through the Garden Route we have seen very good guest houses, but Bloomestate was the best.
We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed our time beeing there very much.
Especially we like to point out the designed rooms, the garden, the pool, the lobby and last
but not least the excellent breakfast. Particularly we thank Carla & Maarten for their hospitality.
We had a great time at Bloomestate and if we may come back to South Africa we will stay at
Bloomestate.

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.

Reviewed 10 December 2013 via mobile

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.
