This was our 2nd visit to Knynsa and as we stayed at Villa Afrikana the 1st time, we really wanted to stay with Bianca and Ross again, who also own The Bloem. This property overlooks the lagoon from the hillside with fantastic sunrise and sunset views. The rooms are immaculate and the team ensures the highest touches in hospitality. Breakfast is wonderful with incredible selections. This is a beautiful property and I wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else in Knynsa - Bianca and Ross and their team are incredible hosts. A must stay !

Hotel's Favourite
Incredible attention to detail, service was exceptional better than a high end 5 star hotel. I honestly could not fault it at all, the staff were so attentive and Bianca was the perfect host. The views are amazing from the rooms and pool area, breakfast was to die for and nothing was too much trouble, what a gem of a place,

Facilities 4 - the pool is tiny Room 3.5 - an awkward design made it feel like a converted garage. Well finished and a good sized bathroom. Wasn’t possible to watch TV from the bed. Breakfast -4 . Never a fan of ordering the night before especially in a 5star establishment. Bacon over cooked. Service 5+ - the staff bend over backwards to provide everything you need. Lovely small touches such as a glass of fiz with chocolate strawberries on arrival. Conclusion. Staff are doing all they can to make up for the property they have and they do a fine job. But this isn’t five star.

Dear Mark W Thank you once again for selecting THEBLOEM Guest Suites for your recent stay. Our guest’s comfort, happiness, and overall experience are important to us. Thank you for taking the time to review us, as we are always looking for ways to improve our product. We love your comments about the hard working, attentive Staff and agree with you that THEBLOEM couldn’t be as popular as it is, without their continuous support and dedication, we do apologize though that the architectural design of your suite did not meet your expectations, all our 5 suites are unique in design and layout and share same standards of comfort and services. Apologies if there may have been a misunderstanding how our breakfast service works. We pride ourselves in our Breakfast Service, not the typical Buffet Style Breakfast but freshly prepared to order, with an option to also be enjoyed in the comfort of your suite balcony served course by course. Guest may fill in their Breakfast card the night before and hang it outside their suite door or first thing in the morning and are also welcome to order at the breakfast table should they wish, there is plenty of flexibility. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you would like to discuss your stay further, until we meet again Ross & Bianca We at T H E B L O E M, a 5*, small-size, family-owned Guest House, have been operating in the formal hospitality industry for the past 7 years, consistently achieving the highest marks and accolades for our services and facilities. We are situated in “Paradise”, a leafy and quiet neighborhood on the western side of Knysna from which to enjoy the most magnificent unobstructed views of the iconic Knysna Lagoon and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of the Knysna Waterfront and its many restaurants and attractions.

Thebloem is the most beautiful guest house located on a hill overlooking Knynsa. Upon arrival we were greeted by Jossy, who looked after us amazingly during our 2 night stay. Over our 16 day trip to South Africa , Thebloem was the best accommodation we stayed in. Beautifully decorated rooms with high quality bedding and stunning views. An added bonus of complimentary afternoon tea and happy hour each evening. The freshly cooked breakfast was delicious, and Bianca, the owner, was present every day to offer advice on sightseeing and to ensure that everything was perfect. I cannot recommend this property enough. I wish they also offered evening meals as we would definitely have eaten there at night as well. Thankyou for an amazing stay.

I wish I could give 6 stars! This was our second stay at The Bloem and we were again completely overwhelmed with the attention to every little detail of extraordinary service! The staff are exceptional! The special welcome we received upon arrival just made our day! The rooms are exceptional, large, very comfortable and immaculate. Bianca also made time in the morning to chat to our family at breakfast and this just shows the personal touch which will make us return again and again!

Where to begin….we stayed for 3 nights as a family of four and it was absolutely amazing. The staff, attention to detail, accommodation, food, setting…all of it outstanding. What makes this place unique is the magic touches from all the team. Never have I felt so welcomed and special at a hotel. It’s intimate 5 suites allows for peace and quiet but your just a few mins drive from the main parts of Knysna. Special thanks to all of the team, especially Jossey, Bianca, Constance and Vivu (sorry that I’ve spelt that wrong…you will always be the best scrambled egg maker EVER!), and Lovemore, you and the team work incredibly hard to make everyone’s stay so memorable and special. We will most definitely be back and honestly can’t recommend this place enough!

Staff and accommodations exceeded Anne and my expectations. Outstanding facility, great view and the staff attitude is contagious. During our two days we enjoyed the artistic vib of the city, one guided excursion and above average dinner options. In closing, as a couple we rank this hotel and experience exceptional!
