We had a wonderful time at the beautiful guesthouse Bloomestate! Thanks to the outstanding care and hospitality of owners Maarten en Carla.
Every day starts with a really delicious breakfast with fresly squeezed juice, bread, fruits, cakes, eggs etc. And all the food is presented so festive!
After breakfast you can enjoy the beautiful big garden with swimming pool and jacuzzi where you can relax and have a astonishing view of the mountains.
If the weather is not so good, you can enjoy the cosy lounge with free tea and coffee, books, films and a so called honesty bar.
The big rooms are tidy and provided with a comfortable bed, bathroom, minibar, tv and a safe. Bloomestate is situated next to a spa and a beauty and massage salon. After a couple of days enjoying the wonderful stay it felt like a very warm home.
If we have the chance we will definitely go again. Thank you Carla en Maarten!

We had a wonderful stay at Bloomestate. The hosts made us feel very welcome and were very helpfull in giving tips for restaurants and places to go. The BB has a beautiful interior and you can tell the host has an eye for detail! Very chilled ambiance and a lovely pool, and even a jacuzzi! The rooms smelled delicious (their own room spray) and provided everything and more (candles, bathrobes, lots of towels), this made it feel very luxurious. Breakfast was amazing, Fresh fruits including raspberries and figs :) Swellendam is a small city with nothing much to do but a good stop on our garden route, luckily we booked at Bloomestate and we chilled the whole day at the pool and bar and living area (amazing cookies and tea). Bloomestate provides lots of space and I couldn't decide where to read my book (hammock, jacuzzi, chill area, pool beds, room?). We would definitely come back, perfect combination of luxery and nature, we felt very welcome!!

Been there at least 4-5 times during the last years and stayed there always for 4 days.
As you enter the yard, you can see already the shady parking lots. Further down the path are the rooms, each with view to the pool and the courtyard with trees and lavender beds. The lounge across the courtyard with fridge (drinks), free coffe and tea and beautiful seating facilities is nice and welcoming. The quality of breakfast always outstanding. We'll be back.

Carla and Maarten, welcome us in what i consider is theyr house, they manage the place as theyr own residence and treaty consequently the guest, bloomestate is more than anamazing place, the quiet and the good energy that each single corner of the estate give to us, the room as well the pool and all the amenities are much better than some of the five stars L hotel around the world that we had visit, the differences btw perfect place and a place that fill also your soul with happyness is done by Carla and Marteen, surely if we will back in South Africa Bloomestate will be a place where we would like to live sometimes again.
Thank you for had us as guest in your house.

This is our second time at Bloomestate. Everything there is a reason to come back: beautiful garden and beautiful, nice, comfortable and modern guesthouses. An 'inviting' swimming pool and a very exclusive and delicious breakfast. But not in the last place our hosts. Carla and Maarten are so friendly, helpful and good hostes. There are good restaurants around, Carla and Maarten advise you about visiting possibilities.

Room Tip: Every room is of the same high quality
