This guest house is really faultless! Exceptionally neat and modern with every convenience thought of! Our deluxe room was extremely spacious with a huge balcony looking on to the pool. The hosts prepared a first class breakfast better than any 5 star establishment I have ever been to. All the bread is home made. The beds are VERY comfortable and...

We stayed with Wim, Margot and Reuben (the dog) for a few nights and couldn't have had a better time. The hospitality provided, along with a great breakfast and beautiful setting in this wonderful boutique hotel made our time truly enjoyable. Oudtshoorn is a great little town and has some very enjoyable restaurants (such as Bello Cibo and Jermimas). Top...

Everything was better than we had expected. The attention to detail from the welcome to leaving was perfect. Our room (deluxe) was very well appointed with an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast with masterchef Margot was foodie heaven.

Not a particularly scenic approach to, or view from this Guest House, but once inside, everything was "five star". This was undoubtedly the most tastefully decorated and well maintained guest house we have stayed in and Vim and Margot have every reason to be proud of their efforts and were perfect hosts.

We were celebrated our honeymoon and it was just a perfect place! The rooms are well decorated, the atmosphere is warm and the best was the breakfast- with home made bread made by Wim, which was just great! Highly recommended!

We had a great stay in the Pictures guest house. The place is very nice, comfortable and quiet. Our room was large, spotless, well decorated and had a huge terrasse over the swimming pool. The hosts were lovely (as well as Ruben the dog!). Breakfast was excellent. I had specific dietary requirements and they arranged special products just for me....

We stayed here for a night on our honeymoon as we were booked for a tour at the Cango Wildlife Ranch (I highly recommend it!) and it's a short drive away. The guesthouse was exceptional; more a boutique hotel really. The room was more like a suite- it was huge! With a separate dressing room area & a lovely big...
