Get to know this peaceful Swellendam town through feeling at home and getting cared of by Bloomestate most gentle landlords. The very spacious and well designed rooms go along with the nice green area surrounding the diferent buildings (including one dedicated to cosiness by the fireplace, books reading, game playing and music listening). Everything here is well designed with much taste .Also consider the very welcome jacuzzi , if you feel the swimming pool is too cold by this winter time !

What a wonderful place, with superb owners. I informed them that I would be arriving late and would be leaving very early the next morning, and asked if the could pack a breakfast for me to take away as I would've leaving before breakfast would be served. Well, the breakfast they packed and left in my room was fit for a king. The owner met me as I arrived and assisted me with carting my luggage to the room. Awesome place and wonderful attention to detail. True German perfection. I have stayed here before and can definitely recommend this place for a great stay. Only regret is that my stay was too short. The grounds in the establishment are wonderful, with a pool, jacuzzi and lovely fruit trees. Awesome place.

What a fantastic stay. It was everything I expected and more. My husband and I spent two nights in the Red Cloud Room. One of the day’s was spent just chilling out at the estate - a wise move. I spent a perfect afternoon in the lounge listening to the birds in the beautiful gardens and enjoying a relaxing time reading while my husband was sketching on the deck at the Lilly pond. Coffee machine in lounge area was a nice touch as was the wide selection of reading material. There is also an outdoor Jacuzzi (very clean) which we used the one evening. Care was taken that there were different items on the buffet each morning. Cooked breakfast available to order - bacon is outstanding! Carla and Maarten (owners) were attentive to our needs while at the same time respecting our privacy - a rare balance! There are two resident well-behaved / trained Ridgebacks that add to the charm of the estate. The wifi speed was also excellent (unlike so many places which offer free wifi which does not work properly)

Room Tip: Red Cloud most spacious (worth it for more than one night or you intend on spending time enjoying th...

Last time we were in Swellendam and at Bloomestate was 2004, so quite some time ago. Maarten and Carla bought the property a year later, they are really great hosts and the propery is stylish with a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast is very nice presented. We will not forget the dogs, how sweet and well trained! Would certainly reccomend Bloomestate and Swellendam!
