Once again a super stay. The rooms, breakfast, staff and of course Venita, make this place a must when in Oudtshoorne. My wife and I have stayed a number of times, and have always enjoyed the welcome and comfort of La Pension. It seems to improve each year. Here's to the next time!!

Janet gave us a very warm welcome. Our room was adequate with French windows to the garden and pool area and had a spacious and modern bathroom. Lovely swimming pool with very comfy sunbeds. Delicious breakfast with tables beautifully set with lovely cloths and napkins arranged around the pool. Great location with secure parking. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely, comfortable place to stay in a quiet residential area. Plenty of space for guests with their own sitting room, sun beds and pool bar. Menus for local restaurants are available, and some offer shuttle service free of charge, but if not then taxis are plentiful and cheap. Excellent breakfasts.

We stayed for a single evening in mid December. The grounds are gorgeous and the rooms are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. There is a beautiful pool area, that we spent most of our time around. The hosts are also an absolute pleasure and make for a very positive experience all round. We will definitely be returning.
