This was a very happy and pleasant break in a trip home. Errol and Venita and the family were very welcoming and accommodating at short notice. Everything about the guest house is excellent. The accommodation, breakfasts, relaxing garden and guest facilities. We will definitely recommend La Pension Guest House

''An example of a perfect guesthouse'' This is a great place to stay, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Spotlessly clean, in a very quiet and peaceful location. We would like to mention that every detail and every corner of the interiors and exteriors are built with love and perfect taste, Such a warm welcoming at the door, made us feel right at home. Thank you to the owners of La Pension in Oudtshoorn, you guys are Fantastic. Much Love Bronwyn&Cornè xx

We have rarely found such a great facility with a warm and professional service. Eroll and Venita take care of their guests and pay attention to the smallest detail to make their stay as pleasant as possible. On our next trip we will plan a longer stay at La Pension Guest House. This B&B is truly highly recommended.

We stayed 4 nights in this wonderful guest house. Our double room was large and comfortable with a spacious bathroom. We had doors leading to the beautiful garden with the pleasantly good sized swimming pool. Breakfast was delicious and varied each day. Errol and Venetia were wonderful hosts. Oudtshoorn is a very pleasant town with interesting architecture and a good choice of restaurants. We love to come back.

One of the nicest places I have ever stayed, La Pension gets everything right, from the lovely garden cottages to the poolside bar and the amazing breakfast. We got a fantastic welcome and enjoyed fascinating conversations about cycling in South Africa. I would struggle to come up with anything they could do better. Wonderful.
