We stayed for a single evening in mid December. The grounds are gorgeous and the rooms are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. There is a beautiful pool area, that we spent most of our time around. The hosts are also an absolute pleasure and make for a very positive experience all round. We will definitely be returning.

We stayed for two nights at La Pension Guest House and were very pleased with the room, the parking facilities, the pool and the breakfast. Our host took very good care of us, even making a reservation in the restaurant for diner at evening.

if you like to stay in Oudtshoorn this is the best place to be. The guesthouse is ideally located in a quiet neighbourhood, on a walking distance from the village centre (shops and restaurants). For daytrips to the caves, the Swartbergpass or oistrich farms it is an excellent place. A day at the pool in the lovely garden is defenitely...
