One the best places to stay in Oudtshoorn is without discussion "La Pension". Location close to the center, on the way to the Schwartsberg Pas, quiet and most of all spacious rooms and a personnel, not even "Afrikaans" decoration, but inviting to relax, to stay for a few days more. Breakfast is like it has to be: start you day...

From the warm welcome received on arrival through to our reluctant departure Venita was the perfect host. The cottage was delightful and the surrounding gardens idyllic. Great thought and attention to detail was evident. We'd love to stay again and definitely recommend a visit. Perfect!
