A beautiful house and garden and lovely hosts Errol and Venita. They gave us lots of great recommendations for things to do in the area and restaurants to go to, calling ahead at places to check if they could seat us. The rooms are lovely with all the amenities you could wish for. They offer a huge choice for breakfast....

I couldn't praise La Pension guest house enough. We had the family cottage with two bedrooms, which is somewhat isolated by the rest of the guest house. Beautiful, cosy old house in the outskirts of Oudtshoorn. Premises spotless clean, wonderful, peaceful garden and pool area, rich breakfast; friendly and efficient management. Oudtshoorn itself is basically a few blocks where the...

We chose Oudtshoorn as a Base for the Swartberg Pass. La Pension is located in a nice quiet area. We were accomodated in the cottage, which was really lovely. The owners Errol and Venita are very friendly and helpful. Overall our Stasi was an excellent experience.

The owners were unfortunately not there but the lady that stood in for them made sure that we were comfortable and welcomed us with a complimentary drink.

La Pension was lovely. The cottage we stayed in was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, very spacious and warm from the under floor heating. The hosts Venita and Errol made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts were amazing. We had a wonderful stay.

Very attentive hosts and a great homely feel about the guesthouse. Everything you needed was available at the guesthouse and the hosts offered some very good advice and services. We enjoyed the use if the living room and felt safe and secure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here. The Cango caves nearby (spectacular!) and Swartberg pass (steep, high and a little scary!) were well worth visiting. Our hosts, Errol and Venita, were most helpful and considerate, and good company.

Our stay for one night was too short actually. The garden and pool was very nice and lot of activities in surroundings. Very good beds and very spacious and nice bathroom. We stayed with our kids in The Cottage. We couldn't swim as water was too cold in May.
