Lovely guest house and appointed rooms . Service with a smile , breakfast excellent. Location good for visiting caves and ostrich farms. Choice of TV channels limited if that is important to you . Nice furniture for relaxing after hard day.

Really exclusive Luxury Guest House with Wim and Margot being very excellent hosts indeed with lots of local information and advise on what to see and do in the area.My daughter Katie absolutely enjoyed the lovely secluded pool and manicured garden.Ask Margot for her secret recipe with tomatoes. Highly recommended.

This was the best accommodation we had on our recent trip to South Africa. It's a guest house but is of hotel standard. Wim and Margot were very welcoming and provided a personal touch. We had a two-room suite, with a very comfortable bed, a balcony overlooking the pool and with a beautiful view to the mountains. Everything was spotlessly...

We stayed here on our recent trip to South Africa, whilst doing a tour, and what an absolute delight. Our hosts, Margot and Wim, not forgetting their dog (Reuben), are lovely and so welcoming. We had a deluxe room, which included a very large comfy bed, with a balcony overlooking the garden and pool. It is beautifully decorated and spotlessly...

We were happy to return to stay at Pictures. It is a little out of town, but easy to arrange transport to restaurants--they pick up and drop off. The guest house is immaculate with so many stylish touches. Plus a great breakfast. Margot and Wim are happy to arrange restaurants and give other advice on where to visit. The pool...

We stayed for 2 nights at Pictures and loved every minute. It was certainly one of the best places we stayed on the garden route. We stayed in room 2 which was very spacious, with a big balcony, and spotlessly clean. Lovely pool area with drinks service and the best breakfasts of our trip. The hotel is in a quiet...

We stayed here on a 16 night trip of the garden route and out of the 5 guest houses we stayed in this was definitely the best. Wim and Margot are the most welcoming and helpful of hosts, the guest house is beautiful inside and spotlessly clean. They have truly thought about every last detail to make your stay special....

We only stayed only one night but is was pure luxury, Wim and Margot could not have made us more welcome and done more for us. The quality of the property and cleanliness is second to none. I think there are only three rooms available so it is all very private and they have a lovely pool available. What I...
