What a great place the owners just couldn't do enough for you rooms were spacious and fittings were decorated to the highest standard and breakfast from the muesli to the fried breakfasts I say breakfasts because you have a choice of over 5 different styles and cooked to perfection. The pool area is neat and tidy a great place

Pictures guesthouse is definitely one of the very best guesthouses we visited in five year travellingtravelling around in the West - & East Cape.

Everything was just perfect. Very clean room. Breakfast was great! Oudtshoorn is a great city with nice restaurants. The area where the bed and breakfast is is very quiet. We will come back when we travel to Southafrica again.

This place is amazing. From the magnificent pool area to the rooms to breakfast....first class. Margo and Wim are great hosts and deserve six stars. It's almost too perfect ;-) I can only highly recommend this place if you are staying in Oudtshoorn. Thank you for a great stay!
