  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

An excellent property in almost every respect and it would have been a delight to stay longer. Be aware it is not really within walking distance of the best restaurants.

Hidden Gem on the Garden Route

We stayed at Bloomestate on our way along the garden route. I booked this hotel because of the positive reviews on Hotels.com and Trip Advisor. Bloomestate really is a "hidden gem" and I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience a luxurious and unique accommodation. Our hosts, Maarten and Carla were wonderful, friendly and helpful. The home made breakfast in the morning is awesome and sets you up for the day. I will certainly stay again when I am in the area.
