The owners were unfortunately not there but the lady that stood in for them made sure that we were comfortable and welcomed us with a complimentary drink. The room was spacious and clean and the bathroom was quite large although the bath was on the small side for such a large bathroom. The breakfast was great and we really had... More

La Pension was lovely. The cottage we stayed in was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, very spacious and warm from the under floor heating. The hosts Venita and Errol made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts were amazing. We had a wonderful stay.

Very attentive hosts and a great homely feel about the guesthouse. Everything you needed was available at the guesthouse and the hosts offered some very good advice and services. We enjoyed the use if the living room and felt safe and secure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here. The Cango caves nearby (spectacular!) and Swartberg pass (steep, high and a little scary!) were well worth visiting. Our hosts, Errol and Venita, were most helpful and considerate, and good company.

Our stay for one night was too short actually. The garden and pool was very nice and lot of activities in surroundings. Very good beds and very spacious and nice bathroom. We stayed with our kids in The Cottage. We couldn't swim as water was too cold in May.

B&B accommodation doesn't get better than this!!! It's an absolutely stunning property, beautifully maintained & run by very genuine warm hosts. And if you are a cycling enthusiast, then you simply have to stay here...

Were we surprised when we arrived! The photos do it little justice. An open, gorgeous property, gorgeous and well kept rooms, lovely garden and even lovelier hosts. Breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended
