“First Class Accomadation and Welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This was a last minute addition our trip but well worth it. The accomadation was excellent, but more importantly the welcome from the owners, With a 4 month old and 2.5 year old it is always a gamble as to how welcome you will be. However, Venita was great and as soon as we walked into house her warm hello made us feel relaxed and instantly at home.
Anywhere with a great garden setting, pool and an honesty bar sets the mood for a relaxed stay.
The breakfast was great and our 2.5 year old ate all is fruit salad simply due to the smiley face it was served on a plate. Great small little touches.
We will definitley return here as one night is not enough to explore all there is in the area and to do this great place justice.

A genuine, friendly well managed guest house with resident and very pleasant owners. Everything is high quality and very well maintained and guests are genuinely welcome. This. Guest house sets a really high standard, much better than similar establishments with a wonderful and relaxed setting, great gardens and pool and nothing is too much trouble. It is well placed for a variety of visits and for the town and restaurants. Other places are not likely to meet these standards, do stay with confidence.

Room Tip: All very good, all modern and very similar.

The owners could not have been more welcoming. We were a group of five adults who stayed here on a 10 day tour of the Garden Route. The location of the house is superb - a leafy and tranquil spot close to the town's museum, shops and restaurants and walking distance to a large pool (as well as the one on site). The garden is stunning and the patio ambiance unbeatable - even the lemons we ate taste nice !! The bathrooms were big and beds comfy. All in all we couldn't have asked for anything more. There aren't many places I would choose to go back to, but this one I must.

My wife and I stayed two nights at La Pension and were delighted with all aspects of our stay.

Received a very warm and genuine welcome from the owners Errol and who frankly could not have done more to make us feel at home.

Our room was large, airy and spotlessly clean - as was the en suite bathroom. The garden area was lovely and appeared to maintained to a high standard. On the day we arrived the temperature was in the high 30'sC so the pool was most welcome.

Breakfast was served on the terrace, fresh fruit and juice followed by an English breakfast
Set us up for a days trip sightseeing.

Highly recommend staying here.

We had a wonderfull stay for two nights in La Pension, together with our children (8 and 10 years old). Everything was perfect, rooms nicely furnished and spotlessly cleaned. The children enjoy the garden and the pool tremendously, and my husband and myself enjoy peacefullness and beauty. A big thanks for Tilly who made our stay there fantastic.

Room Tip: They have a family room!

Everything was perfect for our 2 days stay here. The rooms are confortable and perfectly clean. Double bed a little small for a couple, for the rest everything ok.
Attentiopn to details and a very good breakfast.

The highest point is the garden, beauty and peace to spend the HOT afternoons of the summer.
You can stay at La Pension without a doubt!!!

This place provided an excellent stopover. It was in a fine, quiet location, but still within a 15 minute walk of a number of restaurants. The menus were thoughtfully provided by the B&B and we selected Jemima’s – good choice!

Our hosts were away during the time we stayed, but we were well looked after by the ‘locum’ manager who gave us a very welcome drink on arrival.

The room was nicely furnished, but the bed was rather small being only 4’ 6” wide. Fortunately both my wife and I are on the slender side! Also, there was no fridge or TV (but there was a separate TV lounge). The bathroom was excellent, being beautifully fitted out with good quality fittings. The room was spotlessly clean.

Breakfast was a pleasant, relaxed affair, being served outside by the swimming pool – really nice. The fruit cocktail ‘starter’ deserves special mention – it was truly excellent.

Overall a very good stopover – recommended. And yes, we would stay again.

Room Tip: See if they have a room with a bigger bed! We're not used to a narrow 4'6" one!
