We have stayed at Bloomestate during a 3 weeks round trip through South Africa and it has been simply amazing! The rooms are modern and stylisch and have made us feel very comfortably. They are surrounded by a wonderful garden. Carla and Maarten are great hosts and have done everything to make us wisch, that we could stay any longer. They have booked us an excellent restaurant dor dinner and last but not least, the breakfast has been the best, we ever had! Thanks for all, we will come back!

Carla and Maarten are the Best....Bloomestate is a real gem! Everything is very tastefully decorated, clean, classy and convenient.
The rooms and bathrooms are very generous in size and equipment. Modern, stylish with extras everywhere.
There is a fantastic pool, a romantic jacuzzi at the pond and breakfast is served with so much love and variation....
Complimentary coffee and tea all day long....they helped you with restaurants reservations and also recommended guest houses for our trip back to Cape Town .
Carla and Maarten do everything with heart and soul and it shows....it s a must to stay at Bloomestate!
We wish them well...and further success!
Thank you for a wonderful time during our honeymoon at Bloomestate!
We loved it!

During our 3 weeks around South Africa Bloomestate was the best stop we had.
I celebrated my birthday and the restaurant the host booked for us was as well very good.
The beautiful garden, the pool, the pond, real a fantastic location.
And last but not least the breakfast with a cappuccino like in Italy, incredibile.
Thank you Carla and Marteeen

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.
