Pulling up at La Plume we were happy to see such lovely surroundings. Having gone through check in we were shown to our suite and could not believe how luxurious it was. Everything about it screamed first rate. The bathroom alone was bigger than some of the bedrooms and ensuites we have stayed in on this trip. The quality of the furniture and fittings was in line with the surroundings. There is a lovely swimming pool set in beautiful gardens as well as a wellness centre offering all sorts of pampering. We just did not have enough time to use the latter but the swimming pool was brilliant. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and tried ostrich for the main course, which followed an exceptional choice from the cold table for a starter. Ostrich is not something that was greatly to either of our tastes but at least we now can say that we tried it. The following morning we were taken on a farm safari of the ostrich farm by the owner of the guest house and farm which added greatly to our understanding of life in Oudsthoorn and this type of farming in general. We were returned to the farm in time for a superb breakfast. Certainly a stay to be remembered fondly and I would urge anyone travelling to this part of the world to try La Plume.Read more
Located in the edge of Oudtshoorn. It's not the kind of place that you will see wild animals nearby, like some of the parks. But, from there we went to Cango Caves, Cango wildlife center. My wife got to pet a cheetah and hold a 7 foot snake. You can ride ostriches and camels at some of the places nearby. Quite a scenic drive getting there from the garden rout. Oudtshoorn is a quiet, very quaint little town. La Plume is fabulous. The entire facility appears to be a restored, older property. The rooms are huge, with a roomy bath and shower. It is single story and not a lot of rooms, which makes it very quiet. The A/C is really good(that's important to me). The rooms are decorated with terrific antiques. The main dining room is likewise nicely restored and decorated with really nicely done antiques. The bed is huge and very comfortable. The in room WiFi is also good, which seems to be rare for africa. There is a medium to large pool, good for doing a couple of laps. They have a pen full of ostriches which my wife enjoyed feeding. The food is fabulous. The service is just as good. The owner is the proprietor, which shows. Everything detail is attended to. If I ever go to Outdshoorn again, I won't even bother shopping for a place. This will be my first choice. If you go, book early. I think it books up pretty fast.Read more
The location is awesome with wide sweeping views. The house is furnished in a beautiful Colonial style with tasteful antique furniture. The bungalow type bedrooms are luxurious with great shower and bath facilities. Evening meal was superb for choice, quality and service. Breakfast was again a great meal, the range of hot and cold food was terrific. We had a wonderful stay, the Staff could not have been more friendly and attentive. I feel quite embarrassed that some negative comments have been made by my fellow British countrymen. Ignore the professional “moaners” and read the positives, La Plume is a great experience.Read more
All the accommodation is single storey and extremely spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was huge, freestanding bath and large separate shower. We only stayed for one night and had dinner there. It was a set menu, we had the ostrich for the main which was cooked beautifully, however the vegetables were help yourself and they were a bit soggy which was disappointing. Highly recommend the hour long ostrich tour of this working farm by the owner who is 4th generation, it was very informative and interesting even though it was a 7.30 am start!Read more
We stayed as a couple in Albino room during a 3 week trip of South Africa. We were only here for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. The room and the bathroom were huge and very nicely decorated giving us a real taste of South Africa. The views from our terrace over the plains towards Oudtshoorn were lovely. We did the farm tour this morning and it was made very interesting by the owner. Would definitely recommend. The staff, particularly Elias, were lovely and friendly. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was delicious, as was breakfast. We hope to come back again at some point in the future. Thank you to everyone at La Plume for our visit. Read more
