Reviewed 28 November 2011

You could waste a lot of time checking out the 300 plus B&B/guesthouse in Oudtshorn. Save all that time by going directly to La Pension & you are unlikely to regret it. We turned up here by chance after driving in bewilderment past option after option & were more than pleased. It may be a little on the pricey side (perhaps they all are) but still represents very good value for money.

The welcome is warm, Errol is a most affable man & quite cosmopolitan. The rating is 4 star but could easily be 5. Quality & comfort are a given & clearly Venita, who has obviously had major input in the design, is a woman of discernment & taste. The rooms are decorated & equipped to a high standard & little touches - posies on pillows just add to the ambience.

There is a pool which is of a usable size, unlike the usual bathtub you so often encounter.

I have often used TA in the past but never previously posted. As you can see I was impressed enough to do so now.

Fantastic setting, lovely old style buildings with modern rooms and bathrooms. Great attention to detail by Vee the owner. The only reason i would not stay there in the future is of she dont have a room for me.

Wow.. this is a really special place to stay in a wonderful little town.

We only booked for one night on our honeymoon but we were in for a surprise.... Le Pension is a wonderfully welcoming place with Venita being the perfect host. She provided some great resturaunt recommendations and we eventually setlled on Jemimas and had a great meal... we could even walk to the resturaunt!!

Our room was large, welcoming and would easily not be out of place in any luxuorious hotel.. the little extras in our room on arrival including local chilled sparkling wine were a great touch and very welcome after a long drive from Cape Town. One item of note was the breakfast which was perfectly presented and delicious

What a wonderful warm welcome we received from Venita and Errol! The cottage was ideal for our little family of 4 - private, comfortable, and beautifully furnished with extra thought added - fresh flowers and the ostrich feathers and the fresh lavender on the pillows. The garden was in full bloom with jasmine and orange blossoms and wisteria - my daughter made grapefruit juice from some picked in the garden! Most definitely a place to return to and highly recommended to any traveler.

We looked for an accommodation in Oudtshoorn and found the beautiful La Pension. The rooms are very nice, the bathroom is great and Venitas Muffins are absolutely delicious. And the most important thing is the heater in the room (it was so cold during the winter season!!!). Errol and Venita made a awesome Braai (Barbecue) for us and we had a beautiful dinner with a lot of fun. Thanks for that!!! So, if you look for an accommodation choose La Pension

Errol and Venita made us very welcome in their beautiful home. We enjoyed chatting with them and having a beer by the pool. The room was immaculate and very well furnished. The house is centrally located in the town and yet very peaceful. It is hard to think of anything that could be done to improve on the experience of staying at La Pension!
