Must be the first time in my life I actually got emotional to leave a one night B&B. Hard to explain... it was perfection in every single detail. Both husband and wife such sweet and interesting people and their Pension is the most amazing we've had in South Africa. And we did a few 😄. Vaut le détour...

We unfortunately stayed for far too short a time to enjoy the beautiful setting to its full. While visiting family in Oudtshoorn, we overnighted at La Pension. The owners Errol and Vivienne provide a personalised and very friendly welcome and excellent service. The cottage, where we stayed, was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We definitely would come back and make...

Our stay was perfect because of the romy and cosy room, the wonderful garden and the best breakfast we had during our holidays at the garden route. One night was too short for the very nice hosts Errol and Venita. Thanks a lot to them!

We liked this place as it reminded us of the many holidays we've spent in Southern France. An oasis of tranquility and charm. We were in the cottage which was a spacious, little gem. We enjoyed our stay and the conversations with the hosts.

we stayed here with our two children in the family cottage. Cottage is very clean but needs to be updated ( Venita mentioned that it was being done in few days). The entrance to the cottage was very private and secure. The garden is lovely with a little pool to wind down in the afternoon. It's a 10 minutes walk...

Our recent stay was perfection. On arrival the owner discussed our plans for our stay. As we were there during the school holiday period she very kindly made all our bookings for us.

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay on the beautiful property. The hosts were so warm and welcoming and generous. The property is immaculately maintained and very central in Oudtshoorn which was convenient because we were there for the KKNK. Would most definitely go back next time!

Friendly host, large rooms, lovely garden. A place to relax and enjoy. Delicious breakfast. Unfortunately, we only stayed one night. On a next visit, we will definitely stay longer. The garden and pool area are a lovely place to get some rest and relax. Good restaurants in walking distance.
