We only stayed for 1 night in winter because we were travelling to the eastern cape but after one night we wished we would have had more time. The guesthouse is wonderful, with a nice garden, poolsite, spacious rooms and ensuite bathrooms. Errol and Venita are amazing hosts who made our stay so great. They can tell you a lot... More

This is a large property close to the center of town. We stayed in a self contained cottage (converted stable) which was very comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean. There is a well stocked bar by the pool (it was too cold to swim) for a relaxing drink after a long day. The owners are very welcoming and full of... More

Loved our stay here- just 1 night passing through with UK friends. Vineta and Errol are so welcoming. Great breakfast. Faultless and very relaxing stay. Would have been great to spend another night to explore all Oudtshoorn and surrounds.

Surprisingly high standard guest house. Welcomed with a drink and information about restaurants. The rooms were the quality of a four star hotel. We experienced whilst out dining 'load shedding' and fortunately the owners were waiting for us to let us back into the property.

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
