We stayed in this guesthouse only for 1 night, which is a shame! We should have stayed at least 2 or 3 nights, as there is so much to do in Oudtshoorn and area. The guesthouse itself is within 2 minutes drive to the main road of Oudtshoorn. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with all luxury you need. The hosts, Wim and Margot, were very lovely and they helped us with road directions to for example Cango Caves, Ostrich farms and Swartberg Pass. The breakfast, completely served and provided by the owners, is very extensive, fresh and tasteful. We had a great time and we highly recommend this place to everyone! Thanks again for the hospitality Wim and Margot.

We spent 3 days at this first class establishment situated in a desirable location with impeccable service provided by the owners, Vim and Margot. The stylish guest house décor, ambiance of the rooms and elegant gardens provided the perfect setting for a relaxing stay. The sumptuous breakfasts on the patio were a delight. Once you have visited Pictures you will want to return again.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 and 3 are the largest

My wife and I stayed here last night and I am writing this before I forget because the owners Wim & Margot who were charming hosts deserve another excellent review.

To be honest we did wonder whether we had made the right choice before we arrived because there are many other places to stay in the area but we could not have been happier to stay here

The house is spotless modern and very stylishly appointed with a lovely small pool area where we were very happy to sit in a lounger for a lazy hour or so before dinner. Our air conditioned bedroom was equally well fitted out with a small but very nice and perfectly adequate en-suite.

Unlike some other places we have seen there was never the feeling that we were intruding in somebody else's home.

Breakfast outside by the pool was excellent with fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice, a small but adequate buffet and a selection of hot choices that were cooked perfectly.

We are used to staying in expensive 5 star hotels all over the world but this establishment did not disappoint us in the slightest.

As a previous reviewer commented these owners take pride in what they do and it most certainly shows.

I would not hesitate to recommend Pictures to anyone who is stopping over in Oudtshoorn.

I've been hesitating whether or not I would write this review. I wanted to keep this little jewel for myself
and friends. But, I should not be selfish. Wim & Margot deserve applause for their efforts to pamper their guests.Our 2 nights stay at Pictures last November is the best Bed & Breakfast experience we ever had (and we've been traveling around quite a lot!). From the moment you step into the house you are overwhelmed by it's stylish decoration, it's cleanness, it's comfort. The rooms are luxurious and cosy. We regretted we didn't book for a longer period there and will certainly go back, that's for sure.
Wim & Margot, thanks for your warm welcome, your great service, your excellent breakfast, your nice chat and we definitely look forward to come back soon. The day after leaving we already missed drinking our bottle of "fonkelwijn" on your terrace.

Room Tip: All rooms are marvellous
