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....

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.
