The hosting couple knows how to treat a guest, hands down. Everything, from welcome to fare well was top notch, dealt with swiftness, preparation, and courtesy with service level of absolute highest class. We felt like home, safe, and never uneasy at Pictures. Thanks a lot, best stay in SA! Calle & Rebecca - Sweden

This B&B is lovely! Very clean and comfortable. The Dutch couple that runs it is very friendly. They have a sweet dog. Oudtshoorn is a beautiful place, with lots of things to do. This B&B makes the best breakfast in South Africa!!!!!

We spent one night at Pictures guest house and we warmly recommend it. Everything was just perfect, from the welcoming to the breakfast. The room was very clean and cosy, with a balcony and a nice view, and the services were perfect.
