Beautiful guesthouse in a tranquil setting. Spacious rooms which were clean and decorated to a very high standard. The swimming pool is a must on a hot day. Good location. Secure parking. Friendly, welcoming and very helpful hosts. We only stayed 1 night and could definitely have stayed longer. We were 2 adults with a young child and felt both...

We had a wonderful stay at La Pension of three nights. Breakfast was taken in the lovely garden (best orangejuice we had) while enjoying the birds that came to feed. Super place to stay at the swimmingpool in the afternoon. Great help with arranging trips, table bookings, outings and our flat tyre.

My mother and I stayed in the cottage and were so happy with every aspect of our stay. The food is great, the grounds are beautiful, but by far what made our experience memorable were the owners. Such amazing, warm and welcoming people. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I would also recommend having dinner at Jemima's and checking...

This is a lovely place and our big regret was that we only had one night. The room we had was large and comfortable with a spacious bathroom. The gardens and pool are beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. The owners were helpful in booking a restaurant for the night and giving other information. As has been previously commented you...

Good place for visiting the Cango caves and for relaxing on the trip. A good restaurant in Town is: Jemima's! This was our start point for the trip through the Karoo desert. Friendly and helpful management.

Wonderful in every respect! We were greeted with a complementary glass of chilled white wine by Janet, the "stand-in" manager, as the owners were away, and were directed towards to bar and it's Honesty Box for future needs! The guest accommodation is set in an annex to the main house and our room was spacious with a large wet-room en-suite....

After trusting Tripadvisor and making our reservation at La Pension, we emailed Venita and Errol asking for recommendations re our route from CapeTown and later asking which Ostrich Ranch to visit in the area. Venita and Errol responded quickly and thoughtfully. This Guest House is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The pool and gardens are gorgeous; the rooms are immaculate...
