It has taken me soooooooo long to write a review so I apologisel. Magnificent place. So clean and immaculate and the hosts could not do enough for you. They arranged for a restaurant for dinner and took us there and collected us. The breakfast was delicious and plenty of choice, I have even stolen their idea for the poached eggs...

We stayed here for two nights on the way to Port Elizabeth and loved it! Breakfasts were superb, the house is immaculate, our room was airy and had all you would possibly want, tasteful decoration, and the owners were really helpful in advising us on places to go and restaurants to eat in. Have already recommended it to our friends...

My family and I (2 adults + 3 grown children) stayed at Pictures Guest House in March 2016. We would highly recommend Pictures Guest House to anyone looking for accommodation in Oudtshoorn. The Guest House is extremely well run, pleasant, comfortable & clean. The owners have travelled alot themselves, so they know what is necessary for you to enjoy your...

Only stayed at pictures for one night but can honestly say it was the best B&B of the lot. Lovely big room with every amenity you could possibly want, imaginative breakfast selections and great hosts. Only drawback is its on the edge of town but we don't walk anywhere at night in South Africa anyway, 5 minute taxi ride. Pictures...

What a great place the owners just couldn't do enough for you rooms were spacious and fittings were decorated to the highest standard and breakfast from the muesli to the fried breakfasts I say breakfasts because you have a choice of over 5 different styles and cooked to perfection. The pool area is neat and tidy a great place

Pictures guesthouse is definitely one of the very best guesthouses we visited in five year travellingtravelling around in the West - & East Cape. A beautiful house, tastefully decorated, equiped with all the amenities one can expect... But most of all two hosts for whom hospitality seems to be their second nature.

There are many 5 star establishments out there that justify their rating on appearance, comfort, cleanliness, design, space, food, etc. But even then, you often feel that if only they had this or something was repositioned there. That is the difference with the Pictures Guest House. The owners have approached their development from the guests perspective. They have thought of...

A superb bed and breakfast establishment in a quiet part of town but only 5 mins drive from restaurants, shops etc. Beautifully appointed bedroom, a lot of thought given to the smallest detail, homemade cookies and little treats in the room, lovely quality bathroom products, bathrobes, slippers etc, every bit as good as a lot of hotels but much more...
