“An beautiful oasis of quietness in Oudtshoorn”
Reviewed April 11, 2010

We stayed for 2 nights in La Pension and enjoyed it very much. The location is perfect: 15 minutes walking distance from downtown, in which there are good restaurants. The house is surrrounded by a nice garden with a large swimming pool.
Breakfast was a delight, cooked and served by the pleasant owners, Errol and Venita. Our room was large with a spacious and modern bathroom.
Free WIFI was also available, although the signal strength should be improved (which actually is on the agenda of Errol).
All in all, we can absolutely recommend this B&B in Oudtshoorn, and will certainly return in case we should visit Oudtshoorn again in the future.

We had a delightful stay. We could only stay one night but it was tempting to completely re-organise our tour so we could stay longer. Errol and Venita were so friendly and welcoming - nothing was too much trouble. Lovely relaxing location. If we come to South Africa again we will make our La Pension reservation first! Hope you are not too successfull or we won't get in! Roger & Carol Whiteley UK

We stayed at La Pension for 3 days and we really enoyed it. The owner is a very welcoming person and the rooms are very nice. We loved the giant bathroom and the garden and pool. The breakfast was delicious!
We even had a big self-made braai and a potiekos evening together with friends of the owner.

We stayed at La Pension for three nights and two days.
Hospitality was impeccable as was the accommodation.
Errol & Vanita are the perfect hosts and La Pension really does do them credit.
We have stayed there on a previous visit to South Africa and we certainly shall again, on our next visit.

We visited Errold and Venita in this wonderful place.
Lovely garden and a large lovely pool.
But most of all- the most warm and kind people - that care about what they do who they house in every detail.
We were - for free- upgraded to the most wonderful and lucusious place we have ever been in. The girls (5 and 9) were so impressed they even started to tidy up after themselved - they never do that at home.
The rooms, the bathroom - a bath top un lion feet- etc. there was paid attention and put an extra effort into every detail. Breakfast served by the pool with excellent fruit salat garnished with colourful flowers - and each morning- a little difference - absolutely perfect. And they are so nice and kind that we felt like leaving family when we left.
AND the most unbelieable: we forgot a small puse belonging to our youngest daughter.
Errold drove 35 kilometers to catch us and give back the purse!!!!!
Actually we didn't know that people so nice and kind even existed.

We cannot recommend this place enough!!
If we just did not live in Denmark we would come back very very often.
