We stayed at La Pension (with our 5-year old) only one night on our way to the Garden Route, but really wish we had planned to stay longer. This B&B is really well taken care of, comfortable, decorated with taste, and the hosts Venita and Errol are just fantastic. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. We felt at home right away.... More

To fully enjoy the lovely hospitality, to explore the town, the highlights around the area as well as the property itself requires at least a 2 days stay. Unfortunately we had planned only 1 night. The recommended restaurant was very good as well as the short notice reservation in the Cango Caves.

This is a beautiful property, with lovely and comfortable rooms. But the grounds are the real highlight: numerous paths and nooks, with exotic plants everywhere. Enjoy your own botanical gardens! Kudos to the hosts for their splendid service and all-around attention to detail.

The perfect place to stay in peaceful surroundings gracefully hosted by Erroll and Venita. Gourmet breakfasts to start your day. Nothing is too much trouble for our very knowledgeable hosts. We will definitely return for another stay. Jenny & Tony Tucker
