Reviewed 5 May 2014

We were made to feel really welcome. When we first arrived, we were invited to an informal get together over drinks where we met the other guests. The owners were very informative about the area and the best places to eat out and even arranged reservations for us. The surroundings of the guest house are lovely too.

We stayed one night at La Pension and we really enjoyed this place. The rooms were very nice and incredibly clean. The garden is well kept with a nice swimming pool. The owners were extremely friendly and always ready to help. They helped us planned a number of activities. The breakfast was also excellent. The prices were very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Stayed 1 night on 04 April 2014 in the cottage. Wish we had stayed at least another night.

Very personalised, friendly and extremely helpful service from the owners themselves. Excellent quality of the cottage furniture, beds, bathrooms, shower, etc. Probably the best shower in Oudtshoorn.....!

Super breakfast served personally by the owners with a real home feel - touch of class.

Definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: The converted barn is a great cottage for 4 people

I was very impress with the welcome we received from Venita and Erol as first impressions are very important. The place was truly 5 star and not 4 star. Very secure and safe also. I will recommend anyone to stay at La Pension as it is worth every cent and everyone with the staff included are very friendly and helpfull.

We stayed at La Pension 3 nights in our 3 week trip to SA. Everything was excellent. The room was spacious and very comfortable, the breakfast was good and Venita's welcome was very warm and helpful. Oudtshoorn is a lovely town.
