After a long drive, pulling up outside La Plume was a pleasure, low main building with bungalows around, Spacious and collonial with a warm sincere welcome. Rooms are all airy and have everything the traveller needs and more. Do have the evening meal, it is homely and plentifull and exceptional value. Rooms are quiet and cool on a warm night,... More

This is such a perfect little place - so peaceful, quiet with amazing views. Breakfast and Dinner was lovely as were the staff and host. Nice to be slightly outside of Oudtshoorn - it's not a particularly pretty town! Just one thing and I am not going to mark them down but they may want to consider in the future... More

We stayed in this beautiful B&B as part of our garden route tour. What a surprise. We went back in time and were given the honeymoon suite. Wonderfully spacious room and what a bathroom. The meal was lovely and a large choice for breakfast. There was plenty to see and do around Outshoorn. It made a lovely change from a... More

What a fabulous place. the food is great - do try the Ostrich. The views are spectacular. The staff could not do enough to help. A really memorable stay. There is plenty to see from La Plume - we visit an Ostrich Farm nearby and the town of Oudtshoorn is very close.

Beautiful accommodation with every room being unique. Great service and very happy with the meals. I stay there for business but it always ends up being a pleasure stay. Get there early so that you can enjoy a welcome drink on the veranda.

Friendly and efficient management and staff welcome you to this "gem"on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn on a lovely colonial style farm and accompanying guest house ! You are presented with a delightful glass of wine (or freshly prepared fruit juice) to enjoy while taking in the awesome views from the manor house . Dinner is a real treat and, together... More

We spent a very pleasant evening at La Plume whilst driving around the striking, arid landscape of the Klein Karoo. La Plume has been styled as a Victorian colonial homestead and this was apparent in our lodgings - a delightful bungalow with Victorian fixtures and fittings. My daughters adored it. The hosts are super-friendly and attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed... More

We stayed in the room (bungalow) to the right of the main house as you look at it and wow what a room! There was a lounge area, huge bedroom area and massive bathroom. The bathroom had a huge shower and freestanding bath with bath salts etc available and gorgeous towels. The furnishings everywhere were simply beautiful and there was... More

We stayed at the honeymoon suite, which was so beautifully decorated in the old french style, it was amazing! The furniture, the bath, the bedding, the curtains, even the glasses and the sherry bottle were wonderfully antique and so beautifully kept, wonderful! Breakfast was also good and very nicely served in the breakfastroom, which like the rest of the msin... More

This is truly a remarkable experience. We were on a 3 day tour and this was our last night of the tour and what a memorable one it was. The bedroom/suite was so lovely and the home with the dining area so "olde worlde" with charm and warmth. The food was spectacular and over all it was just the most... More
