Vanita and Errol were very warm hosts and they made our stay very personal. The rooms and other guest facilities were excellent. It was a home from home, but better. The gardens around the guest house which were open to guests were beautiful and spending time in them really added to our stay. We would recommend this to our family...

A most enjoyable visit. Mr and Mrs Pretorius were a charming and hospitable host and hostess. Safe off-road parking was provided. Beds and bedrooms were very comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent. Battery-powered lamps were provided for use during load shedding.

Most enjoyable stay even though only one night. The accommodation was neat and very clean. In the morning we were served a stunning breakfast. Hosts very friendly and make you feel very comfortable. Good advice on places to go and to eat out.

We only stayed for 1 night in winter because we were travelling to the eastern cape but after one night we wished we would have had more time. The guesthouse is wonderful, with a nice garden, poolsite, spacious rooms and ensuite bathrooms. Errol and Venita are amazing hosts who made our stay so great. They can tell you a lot...

This is a large property close to the center of town. We stayed in a self contained cottage (converted stable) which was very comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean. There is a well stocked bar by the pool (it was too cold to swim) for a relaxing drink after a long day. The owners are very welcoming and full of...

Loved our stay here- just 1 night passing through with UK friends. Vineta and Errol are so welcoming. Great breakfast. Faultless and very relaxing stay. Would have been great to spend another night to explore all Oudtshoorn and surrounds.

Surprisingly high standard guest house. Welcomed with a drink and information about restaurants. The rooms were the quality of a four star hotel. We experienced whilst out dining 'load shedding' and fortunately the owners were waiting for us to let us back into the property.

We had a very warm welcome by Venita & Errol. They provided us lots of information and were helpful. La Pension Guest House is a peaceful place, wonderful garden and close to the centre. We could walk for dinner.
