We stayed here as a halfway house driving the Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. Coming from a large hotel to a guest house such as this one, we immediately felt the friendly welcome and a much more personal and attentive approach. The rooms were immaculate, clean and bright with a lovely view looking out over the lagoon. Breakfast was served to our room each morning and was very tasty with lovely fresh fruit, bread and eggs served to our liking. A nice turndown service every night with the weather reports for the next day and different chocolates. A drinks hour too with an honesty bar outside of these times - all little things that added up to a great stay. The staff were ever so keen to please and we felt they were looking out for us, from greeting us on our return to seeing us off when we would head out. If we were to ever visit Knysna again, we’d be sure to stay in Thebloem again. We can’t recommend it highly enough.

We cannot speak highly enough of this guest house. Everything was five star. Some nice touches like afternoon tea and time for evening drinks. The staff were all wonderful and couldn't do enough for us. Breakfasts were delicious, view stunning, eating out recommendations spot on. If we had a complaint it was that the staff were perhaps over attentive in their desire to help and to ask if everything was ok!

We enjoyed The Bloem for one week. Bianca (owner) and her staff guarantee that this 5star Guest House will no. 1 on the list for future stays. The rooms are perfectly well equipped, the breakfast is wonderful, the service of any staff member friendly & efficient. Golfers are treated well as The Bloem is well connected with all courses of the area. We also enjoyed restaurant recommendations. Parking just in front of the lodge is very comfortable and well monitored at night. We always felt save.
