Our second stay with Errol and Venita at La Pension. We were impressed when we stayed with them last year but the make over has produced one of the most tasteful and luxurious B &Bs of the twelve we have stayed at this year. You are greeted with a warmth and an interest in your experiences to date and your plans for the rest of your stay. The garden is magnificent and if you want to talk plants your hosts will be only to happy.
There is a large pool with Sauna which is surrounded by shrubs and trees and a honesty bar with shaded area over looking the garden.
La Pension is a three minute drive from the centre of Oudsthoorn which is well supplied with restaurants but alas no bars. We use as our favourite Jemimas. After our visit we read they had been chosen as one of the top 10 restaurants in South Africa. I can't comment but after dining out for 34 nights in probably 24 restaurants it certainly came within our top three.
A favourite trip is over the Swartberg Pass to Prins Albert. This is an unmade road that winds ever higher. The scenery views and rock formations are awesome. Another treat is the Waterfall, not far away but this was recommended by Errol. Without him we wouldn't have known it was there.
A Three Star B & B that should be Four Star.
