From the warm welcome, the quality of the accommodation (we booked the cottage) and the stunning location, there was nothing to fault about La Pension. Venita, the proprietor, could not have been more helpful. When we returned from supper in Oudtshoorn after a failure of the mains electricity (Oudtshoorn in total darkness!), a lamp had been left for us outside...

What a beautiful, green haven to be found in the semi - desert lands of South Africa. History, charm, comfort were all present as well as supreme service. No complaints at all - only compliments. Thank you for the chance to stay with you. Best, Jamie
