Reviewed yesterday NEW

we stayed here with our two children in the family cottage. Cottage is very clean but needs to be updated ( Venita mentioned that it was being done in few days). The entrance to the cottage was very private and secure. The garden is lovely with a little pool to wind down in the afternoon. It's a 10 minutes walk...

La Pension Guest house was absolutely awesome. The rooms were clean with aircon.It was easy to find and located in a serene area. The outside is adorned with beautiful gardens and an amazing breakfast. Errol and Venita are excellent guests, going that extra mile to make our family enjoy our stay. A bonus was them advising on places to visit...

So glad she did as there was a long waiting list for Cango Caves. Menus for local restaurants were available - she made all our bookings in...

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay on the beautiful property. The hosts were so warm and welcoming and generous. The property is immaculately maintained and very central in Oudtshoorn which was convenient because we were there for the KKNK. Would most definitely go back next time!

Friendly host, large rooms, lovely garden. A place to relax and enjoy. Delicious breakfast. Unfortunately, we only stayed one night. On a next visit, we will definitely stay longer. The garden and pool area are a lovely place to get some rest and relax. Good restaurants in walking distance.

We only stayed one night in the Cottage but wished we could have stayed for longer. Cottage was fantastic for family of four - and pool and gardens were an added bonus. Would recommend it to anyone visiting this part of South Africa

Lovely quiet peaceful house with spacious pool in tranquil gardens. Hosts were very friendly & informative with suggestions on where to eat & travel to. They arranged restaurant bookings & tickets for Cango caves as well as giving advice on driving through Swartberg pass & Meringsproot. Breakfasts tasty & wholesome. Welcome well stocked "honesty bar"
