We have rarely found such a great facility with a warm and professional service. Eroll and Venita take care of their guests and pay attention to the smallest detail to make their stay as pleasant as possible. On our next trip we will plan a longer stay at La Pension Guest House. This B&B is truly highly recommended.

We stayed 4 nights in this wonderful guest house. Our double room was large and comfortable with a spacious bathroom. We had doors leading to the beautiful garden with the pleasantly good sized swimming pool. Breakfast was delicious and varied each day. Errol and Venetia were wonderful hosts. Oudtshoorn is a very pleasant town with interesting architecture and a good choice of restaurants. We love to come back.

One of the nicest places I have ever stayed, La Pension gets everything right, from the lovely garden cottages to the poolside bar and the amazing breakfast. We got a fantastic welcome and enjoyed fascinating conversations about cycling in South Africa. I would struggle to come up with anything they could do better. Wonderful.

We enjoyed a very enjoyable 3 nights in February at La Pension Guest House. The bedroom was spacious with a sitting area and a large en suite shower room. We also had access to a good sized shared lounge had we wished to stay indoors. Errol & Venita were outstanding hosts and went out of their way to support our stay and to ensure that we achieved everything that we set ourselves to do in Oudtshoorn. The pool area was exceptional with space enough for privacy or socialising as the mood took (a well stocked honesty bar in the pool area gave a great communal space if required). Each day breakfast had an original twist to the menu and the quality of the food was excellent. Off road secure parking for each room made life easy and care free. Would recommend without hesitation.

Thoroughly enjoyed the history and stunning decor of the deluxe room. The air-con was a big plus! A great place to stay and complimented by the warm hospitality and the very good breakfast. Just check your car is parked under cover as the 'contribution' from roosting birds was significant and hard to get the car cleaned on a Sunday.

Hi Gill Many thanks for the awesome review - and apologies for the roosting birds and their "deposits - the 2 awnings in the driveway provide under cover parking so will make sure that guests park "under cover!" Trust the rest of your trip was good - and look forward to welcoming you back again at some stage in the future! Warm regards Errol
