Truly exceptional place
What a wonderful place to stay. Attention to detail is the very best I have ever experienced. Staff and owners are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We were looked after like royalty. We had suite 4 which has the best outlook from its raised decking and great to have breakfast out on in the morning.

Hidden Gem
This was a hidden gem. The most attentive staff we can remember. The rooms are incredibly modern, beautiful and clean. The views from the balcony area were lovely. Free drinks during happy hour. Have almost anything you want for breakfast cooked and prepared specially for you. Great bathroom. Felt very safe and looked after here. The staff are lovely and take incredible care of you.

Just perfect
My wife and I were there for 2 nights in suite four. THEBLOEM is the place of superlatives. No compromise. Just the best in everything : style, comfort, food, views, service, attention to details, little extras which make the difference. It sounds as I were the owner’s friend, so I will add a comment on improvement potential : the taps are too high and water tends to spray a bit outside the stylish but shallow wash basins. Shocking isn’t it ;-)

Das Angebot ist wirklich empfehlenswert. Es ist seinen Preis wirklich wert. Ich kann also nur raten, dorthin zu fahren und einige Nächte zu bleiben. Der Rest es nun wirklich BlindText. Ich wusste nicht, dass man einen Roman schreiben muss, sonst hätte ich darauf verzichtet eine Bewertung abzugeben. Das Angebot aber ist wirklich gut. Unbedingte Empfehlung.
