We were happy to return to stay at Pictures. It is a little out of town, but easy to arrange transport to restaurants--they pick up and drop off. The guest house is immaculate with so many stylish touches. Plus a great breakfast. Margot and Wim are happy to arrange restaurants and give other advice on where to visit. The pool...

We stayed for 2 nights at Pictures and loved every minute. It was certainly one of the best places we stayed on the garden route. We stayed in room 2 which was very spacious, with a big balcony, and spotlessly clean. Lovely pool area with drinks service and the best breakfasts of our trip. The hotel is in a quiet...

Wim and Margot are the most welcoming and helpful of hosts, the guest house is beautiful inside and spotlessly clean. They have truly thought about every last detail to make your stay special....

If you are looking for a spotlessly clean B&B with gracious hosts look no further. Wim and Margot were kind and helpful and have put an incredible amount of work into making this one of the top guesthouses in Oudtshoorn. They also made reservations for us at local attractions and restaurants according to our schedule.

Such a wonderful experience. We had a great room over looking the mountains with our own balcony. The breakfasts are superb and you are made to feel so welcomed by the hosts. I'd certainly consider a return visit despite the cost.

Stylish boutique guest house with lots of pictures - hence the name! Hosted by the lovely Wim and Margot - excellent and thoughtful hosts who helped with dinner and activity bookings. Breakfast was delicious and our room was huge!
