Traveling on the garden route we felt Swellendam was a good place to have a stopover. Our family of 11 were warmly welcomed by our hosts at the door and shown around. The rooms are modern and there is a lovely games and drinks area to relax as well as the pool. Breakfast was a feast with the freshest ingredients....

Being on a long trip in South Africa, we asked travel agents ( Pangea Travel / Inspirations Travels & Tours ) to book our accommodations for a large part of our trip.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bloomestate. The spacious property has a beautifully garden with great pool and jacuzzi. And with only a few rooms, it gave us the peace and quiet we were looking for without losing its charm. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated with all the necessary facilities. Breakfast is amazing with a lot of healthy...

In Swellendam you generally find traditional interiors and this establishment is a fresh breeze of difference. The rooms are generous in size and have very colorful interiors expertly executed so that it is not overwhelming. The hosts Carla and Maarten are wonderful and attentive.

We stayed here for two nights on our Garden Route trip. Carla and Maarten, plus their dogs, were great hosts.

Thoughtful touches included...
