Very Pleasant Two Nights Stay. Homely & Spotlessly Clean Accommodation. Venita is a wonderful hostess who goes that extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. Drinks by the pool, overlooking the fantastic gardens are an added bonus after a busy days sight seeing. Would certainly stay again.

We stayed two nights at La Pension on our Garden Route trip, and we throughly enjoyed our short stay here. The accommodation was very comfortable, the breakfast excellent, and Venetia and Erroll the owners went out of their way to cook a one pot Afrikaner meal over coals when they were informed of a power outage. They also invited two... More

Although it was only a one night stay we felt when we left that we had missed out and should have stayed longer. The owner was very helpful and really made us feel at home. The room was very adequate and clean with a large bathroom and walk in shower. We were very impressed with the residents lounge and verandah... More

A quick stop on route but we really wished we had been able to stay longer. Wonderful welcoming place with breakfast by the pool, great local advice and comfortable room. Great hosts. Highly recommended.

From the warm welcome, the quality of the accommodation (we booked the cottage) and the stunning location, there was nothing to fault about La Pension. Venita, the proprietor, could not have been more helpful. When we returned from supper in Oudtshoorn after a failure of the mains electricity (Oudtshoorn in total darkness!), a lamp had been left for us outside... More

We only stayed for one night but very much regretted that we couldn't have stayed longer. This is an exceptional guest house, the welcome, attention to detail, superb rooms with top of the range linen, furnishings and decor. A lovely pool to cool off followed by a drink at the honesty bar, absolutely stunning. The owner was away but we... More

Very beautiful home, gardens and pool. We have just had a truly memorable stay. The rooms were large, beautifully/ tastefully decorated and we had an enormous bathroom. Everything is quality, bedding, towels and even table linen show the thought put into making the stay memorable. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area with it's really nice beds/towels. Drinks bar was full... More

What a beautiful, green haven to be found in the semi - desert lands of South Africa. History, charm, comfort were all present as well as supreme service. No complaints at all - only compliments. Thank you for the chance to stay with you. Best, Jamie
