Pictures Guest House
Ranked #5 of 78 Oudtshoorn B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I have been to Oudtshoorn many times and never stayed in accommodation that I wanted to return to, until now. Pictures Guest House is perfect. I am not a great fan of guest houses, but I would choose this one over any lodge/hotel/self-catering establishment any time. The hosts, Dutch couple Wim and Margot, were friendly and super professional, and we greatly appreciated their advice and info offered. The house has truly beautiful finishes everywhere, large indoor and outdoor spaces to relax in, and our room was perfect. Great interior design, warm (it was freezing outside), with crisp, high quality linen and every amenity one could wish for. Plenty of cupboard space was a nice surprise, as well as the excellent coffee machine. The bathroom was spacious and well designed, with excellent bath products and fluffy towels. The bed was great and had a good quality electric blanket with various settings, to keep one cosy all night. We woke up to beautiful views of the Swartberg mountains, Breakfast was a sumptuous affair, with freshly baked croissants and unforgettable mini muffins, as well as a buffet with yoghurt, fruit, cheeses, preserves and cold meats and various hot options to be ordered. It was a five star experience in every way!

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a view, and got it!

I am a guesthouse owner in Plettenberg Bay and therefore look at every single detail when I stay in another guesthouse. If you are looking for accommodation in Oudtshoorn, look no further. The stylishly furnished bedroom, crisp white linen, comfortable bed and electric blanket, spacious bathroom, plenty of cupboard space, fantastic breakfast with homemade croissants - what a treat to have stayed at Pictures. Wim and Margot are excellent guesthouse owners.

Overall it was a great experience. We were greeted at the door on arrival and throughout our stay were treated extremely well.
The room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated with all ameneties one could wish for.
The food ( breakfast ) was one of the best breakfasts that I have eaten in this type of establishment with a wide variety of choices ,excellent home baked breads and so well cooked.
I would certainly recommend Pictures to any of my friends if they are looking for a place to stay in Oudtshoorn.

When going to Oudtshoorn and looking for a excellent guesthouse, you have to go and visit B&B Pictures, a five star B&B managed by Margot and Wim.
A wonderful place to stay, excellent rooms and a perfect service.
Just a small advise to the owners, during the winterperiod, the bathroom really needs a heatingsystem. If so, then B&B Pictures is a six star to us !

We were accommodated in a not so nice boutique Hotel in Oudtshoorn for The Klein Karoo Classique Festival 2013 for 3 nights. After 1 sleepness night in a grubby bed we decided to change our accommodation to something more suitable and found "Pictures". Neat, clean, classy, friendly hosts, superb breakfast, all in all highly recommendable. Thanks Margot and Wim!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and wish it was for longer. The service was like one should get in a 5 star hotel and you often don't. Margot and Wim were very friendly hosts nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were sublime we are still talking about it and I am writing this 6 months later! We will return Thankyou.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room but I don't think you would go wrong with any choice!
