We had a very warm welcome by Venita & Errol. They provided us lots of information and were helpful. La Pension Guest House is a peaceful place, wonderful garden and close to the centre. We could walk for dinner.

We stayed here one night to do the meerkat adventure and also the Svartberg Pass. The place is very comfortable and Venita and Errol could not have been more helpful. They arranged our meerkat visit for us we'll before we arrived and minded our luggage for the day. Highly recommended.

We stayed overnight as we wanted to visit an ostrich farm and meerkat experience and wished we had more time to stay another night - it was so cosy and inviting. Close to the road that leads to the Highgate ostrich farm and where you meet for the meerkat experience.

Beautiful setting with excellent rooms, high quality linen and everywhere very clean and well maintained. Owners extremely helpful. Will definitely stay here again. Well situated to visit places of interest on the Klein Karoo.

Venita is a very helpful and friendly host. We stayed at "the Cottage", which was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The garden with the pool is just what you need after a long day's drive, absolutely gorgeous setting. We certainly would go back there.

Only stayed one night to break a long journey but would happily have spent much longer here. Very tranquil, beautiful grounds, very well maintained throughout. Hostess went out of her way to recommend restaurants with copies of menus, maps, offered to help with bookings. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Attention to detail in rooms, breakfast, lounge, welcome, service,... More

Owner/manager couldn't have done any more for us from the moment we arrived; helped us attend to our investigative needs [researching events more than a century ago], relaxed breakfasts, terrific good sized pool, beautiful garden environment

The La Pension Guest House in Oudtshoorn was our last stop at our trip through South Africa. Errol and Venita provided a great hospitality for our family and we had a perfect last stop in SA. We felt very comfortable in the guest house. The rooms, pool and property were very clean. The breakfast was great including a fruit coktail... More

Very nice room and big bathroom. Very good breakfast served in the morning, with choice of continental or cooked breakfast. the owners offered us a glass of wine as welcome and it was nice sitting and relaxing next to the swimming pool.

The accommodation was of very high quality, with the room and the setting of the "garden" first class. While a walk from restaurants we took advantage of the option of walking to the restaurant and being driven back - all arranged by the excellent hostess, who took time to brief us on arrival and had menus for a range of...
